Donner Lake

The beautiful Donner Lake is located just a few minutes from Truckee and right off of Interstate 80. Donner Lake is very similar to Lake Tahoe but on a smaller scale. Homes near this lake are a little less expensive than at Lake Tahoe. There are many older cabins located all the way around the lake and many have incredible lake views of Donner.

There are fun activities all year long at Donner Lake. In the summer months, one can enjoy the water by boating, swimming, fishing, or paddle boarding. The biking trail has recently been completed for runners, walkers and bikers to have access all the way around the lake. Many enjoy the warm summer days by soaking up the rays on one of the many public piers all the way around the lake. The public beach on the West End of Donner Lake has tennis courts, volley ball nets, a play ground, BBQ pits, and life guard on duty during the summer. Homeowners on the West End of Donner Lake have an HOA that includes amenities including volley balls courts, horse shoe pits, ping pong ball, basketball courts, private boat storage, BBQ pits, and a sandy beach. Winter is gorgeous at Donner Lake too and some years the lake has completely frozen over for people to ice skate!
