Donner Lake can get easily missed when headed to Lake Tahoe. It is a beautiful lake that has so much to offer. You can visit the museum, rent water toys and boats, go to the beach, camp, fish, hike,. etc.. I love to go to one of the public docks and just hang out for a few hours. If the dock does not have a gate, you can go on. It is best in the morning and early afternoon. As with
Tahoe, it is best to ski in the morning. We usually come here mid vacation just to chill and get on the water. It is never over-crowded. The public beach is fun too! Old fashion fun that never goes out of style.
