Conveniently located just minutes from I-80 and downtown Truckee, Donner Lake offers all of the beauty, serenity, and activities of Lake Tahoe without the high price tag. Bordered by Donner Memorial State Park on its east end, dotted with public piers along its shores, and accessed by both private and public boat launches and beaches, the lake is a popular spot for boating, fishing, swimming, and paddling. Some of the best rock climbing in area, as well as Sugar Bowl Ski Area and Royal Gorge (the largest cross country ski area in North America) are just a short drive up Old Highway 40.
In addition to the public West End Beach, the Donner Lake Homeowners Association maintains a private beach, with volleyball courts, BBQ pits, basketball courts, ping pong tables, a playground, dock, and boat storage and rentals.
Lakefront homes can be found on the north and south shores of Donner Lake, with smaller, rustic homes, cabins, and condos set back from the lake on the north and west shores. Several developments, such as Wolfe Estates and Donner Lake Woods, offer large, newer estates and undeveloped lots.
