About Donner Memorial State Park

Donner Memorial State Park offers the summer vacationer opportunities for Donner Lake camping, picnicking, boating, fishing, water-skiing, and hiking. In winter, visitors can cross-country ski and snowshoe on trails and enjoy the season's beauty. Visitors are welcome year-round at the Donner Memorial State Park Visitor Center and at the Pioneer Monument, built to commemorate those who emigrated to California from the east in the mid-1800's. The Visitor Center features compelling new exhibits that tell the stories of the Emigrant Experience, the Donner Party, the Land of the Washoe, Chinese construction of the railroad, and early motoring adventures over Donner Pass.

Great One Night Stop

We are traveling to Idaho and stopped here for the night. I am in a wheelchair so we had a handicap sight. All the sights were clean and had nice fire pits with a grill grate. Close to the 80 freeway but the noise wasn't bad. Definitely coming back to camp here and explore!

First to Review
Donner Memorial - Lake Tahoe

great campsite relatively close to lake tahoe. i would definitely recommend this as an alternative if you are unable to get a campsite in tahoe as those book up quickly. fortunately or unfortunately you are very close to a small town, so you can drop in for food and drinks.
