Donner Memorial State Park Campground is located at about 6,200 feet on Donner Lake in the Sierra Nevada and has a total of 152 campsites for tents, trailers and RVs.  The maximum trailer size is 24 feet and 28 feet for an RV. The campground is usually open late May through September.  The campground is set up in three camping loops: Ridge, (1-49); Creek, (50-107); Splitrock (108-152). Sites #93 and #95 are bike or walk-in only and site #130 is the only pull thru. Creek loop is located closer to Michelis Pond. Splitrock and Ridge are a bit closer to Donner Lake. The campground has an amphitheater, camp host, hiking trails, drinking water, dump station, flush toilets and hot showers. Each campsite has a table, fire ring, grate and food storage locker.

Visitors are welcome year-round at the Trail Museum, with exhibits recounting the tragic story of the ill-fated Donner Party trapped in the area during the severe winter of 1846-47. The museum also features displays on the region’s history and natural environment. Donner Memorial State Park’s 3 acres feature a swimming area, picnic sites, and cross-country skiing trails in winter. Other activities include picnicking, boating, fishing, water-skiing, hiking and wildlife viewing.
