Donner Lake

Both families and second-home owners at Donner Lake.  Most homes are within walking distance of the lake.  History buffs and nature seekers often are drawn to Donner Lake – an area bordered by Donner Memorial State Park on the east and Donner Summit on the west.  The area also is a favorite with rock climbers. At the west end of the lake, the Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District maintains a beach.
