We stayed here because we wanted to see the Perseid meteor shower and the park is at 6000 feet. The camp sites are large, plenty of space. Good for rigs to 24 feet, not good for larger rigs. Our trailer is 19 feet and we could fit our trailer plus tow vehicle in site driveway barely. We stayed in site 18. Partly shady so we could get our batteries recharged. Park is oriented toward the lake which we did not use but is beautiful. There are bears so they provide bear box in each site but we didn't see any. Showers are $.25 per minute and clean as are restrooms. We have been here before and will return. We camped at Donner Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is near Donner Pass, worth seeing the lake from there on Donner Pass Road. Interesting historical signs around the pass. Also close to Lake Tahoe.

Overall Rating:

Dry camping for tents or for RV under 24'. Very tight turns. Big boulders. No directional signs for one-way roads in order to back-in. Crunched up our Airstream on a boulder trying to turn around. Our fault, should have driven around again! Nice trails, lots of room around each site. Must unhitch to fit vehicle into the concrete pad, which is very wide and level. If you don't have a problem with rig size, it is a very pretty park, high in the Donner Pass area just west of Truckee off I-80. We camped at Donner Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.
