Donner Lake is located on the west end of Truckee and offers breathtaking views of the Sierra Crest and nearby peaks. The Lake is bordered by Donner Memorial State Park and Donner Summit. The Lake’s name comes from the unfortunate Donner Party which spent a fateful winter near the lake in 1846. It was recently ranked along with Truckee in the Top Ten Lake Towns in the U.S.
Donner Lake is conveniently located just minutes away from Downtown Truckee and a short drive on Historic route U.S. 40 brings you to the Summit ski resorts of Sugar Bowl & Royal Gorge.
Enjoy wonderful fishing, boating, and water sports during the long summer days. West End Beach is a great place for a picnic, with sandy beaches, a playground, volleyball courts, BBQ pits, a snack bar, and of course swimming in the cool, inviting lake. There are also many public docks used for fishing, picnicking, and relaxing in the sun. People can purchase a season pass or pay-per-use. A public boat launch and public piers on the north side are also available.
It is no wonder Donner Lake is known as one of the Jewels of the Sierra.
