Sad thought it may be, the Donner Memorial affords campers a glimpse of important American history among the Sierra peaks. – The Setting
This park is above 6,200 feet in elevation, so weather plays a big role in camping--the campground closes for snow and ice. Located in the Sierra Nevada, the park records the adverse conditions the ill-fated settlers--who turned to cannibalism to survive their 19th century journey--encountered crossing this rugged range.
Campsites are a mixture of tents and trailer/RV sites, none with hook-ups. The park's three acres a swimming area at Donner Lake, picnic sites, and cross-country skiing trails in winter.
