Donner Lake is the perfect getaway- quiet lake living that is still close to everything in the North Lake Tahoe region! Close to many ski resorts such as Sqaw Valley, NorthStar-at-Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, Mount Rose, Sugar Bowl, Boreal and Donner Ski Ranch. The historical town of Truckee is a short 5 min. drive, with river rafting on the world-famous Truckee River and the Donner Memorial museum! Wide trail ranges - from beginning to skilled hiking and biking. 2 Championship Golf courses within close range. Centrally located, visitors can also take longer trips to Reno (45 min.) for a show or gambling, California's Gold Country for history and maybe some gold panning, or Lake Tahoe to name a few! Lake Tahoe is close- Approx. 35 minutes from North Shore and 90 minutes from South Lake Tahoe's shows, skiing, gambling and other attractions. Boat launch 1 mile away; small watercraft launch 200 feet with a picnic area and fishing pier with handicap access and toilet facility at Shoreline Park.
