Heading to Don Pedro (La grange, Central Valley, CA) for Memorial Day

Any sage advice from those who have taken their ski boats out on that lake. Anything special to watch out for, bad roads or ramps to avoid, good places to get a drink!! suggestions etc much appreciated. Thanks

Every time we have been to Don Pedro it's been full of crazy people/drivers. I can't imagine the craziness with the lake being low. I personally would avoid it and head to New Melones instead.

Seconded... don't go to Pedro. Water levels are super low.

However, the craziness of that lake probably wouldn't compare to Lake Tulloch.

Plenty in NorCal! Our Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta is brimming, Tulloch, out in Gold Country will be full all summer and even Lake Anderson south of San Jose is open for boating. With that said, this Skipper will leave his X2 dry-stack stored on Memorial Day Weekend. I've been out on the Delta since January and can skip that weekend of madness thanks.

Beautiful trip, lots of water, not too crowded. The marina personnel were over-the-top friendly. They even hooked up the boat to the trailer for me, and gave me a ride up the hill so my daughter could use the restroom. Great time, Great Lake!
