Boat Inspection Requirements

If you plan to launch your vessel in Donner Lake this summer, you will be required to get an inspection. The fee and location of this inspection is yet to be determined, but the location will most likely be at the Truckee Donner Recreation and Park District boat ramp at the west end of Donner Lake. It is important to note that a vessel, as defined by this ordinance, is any motorized vessel or sailboat with a water ballast tank or bilge. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards will not require inspection.

If your vessel does not pass inspection, you will be required to have your vessel decontaminated at the Northstar or Alpine Meadows vessel decontamination areas before you can launch in Donner Lake. If your vessel passes the inspection you will receive a sticker. There are a variety of fees associated with the stickers that you can choose to pay based on how you plan to use your vessel:

  • $10 per vessel – monthly
  • $25 per vessel – summer season (May through September)
  • $40 per vessel – annual
  • $20 per vessel – Donner Lake only – summer season

Aside from the “Donner Lake only” option, you will be required to have your vessel reinspected every month.

After the inspection, your sticker will be up to date and you will be allowed to launch at Donner Lake. If you come to the Tahoe Donner Beach Club Marina to launch your boat without a sticker, we will ask you to visit the inspection location before you can launch. If you choose to launch without a valid inspection sticker, you will be subject to violation fines.
