Donner Lake

Donner Lake is a focal point for many activities. The usual water type activities of swimming, sailing, water skiing (35 MPH Limit), diving, and fishing (Mackinaw, Rainbow, German Brown, and Kokanee) can be enjoyed on our “Jewel of the Sierra”.

There is quite a bit of “public” access to the Lake: Donner Memorial State Park and Museum, West End Beach, as well as 1.5 miles of public boat docks along the North side of the Lake, from the Public Boat Ramp, to the Donner Tract Private Beach (there is also a small section of public piers at the foot of Summit Drive).

Being at the center of some of the best snow skiing in the Sierra, makes Donner Lake a very popular place. Donner Lake is less than a half hour from: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch, Tahoe DonnerĀ®, Boreal, and Soda Springs. In addition, Royal Gorge and the Donner Memorial State Park may have trails for the Cross Country crowd. Snowboarding is also popular.

For the more Adventuresome:

Hiking is very popular; take a tour with a Ranger at the State Park; visit the Indian “Petroglyphs” near Rainbow Bridge, or Rock Climbing near the Summit — there are several climbs which have challenged even the best!

Horseback riding is available at various resorts and Golf Courses are also less than a half hour away. Soar above us all, with a glider ride from the Truckee Tahoe Airport, just minutes away.

Organized Summer Activities:

Mini Triathlon (which inclues swimming about 1 mile, 40K bicycle race, then run around the Lake!); The 4th of July FIREWORKS; Donner Lake Swim; The Lake Tahoe Music Festival will be held exclusively in the Village at Northstar; Turkey Trot (run around the Lake). Throughout the summer there are all types of events happening, such as sailboat and windsurfing races. Check often with the Truckee Donner Park & Recreation’s Event Calendar for what’s happening while your visiting Donner Lake.
