The deadline to remove kayaks and SUPs from storage is Sunday, Oct. 4, which is the last day the Beach Club Marina will be open this year.

Beach Club Marina Boat Ramp Update

Tahoe Donner Association has received word from the senior hydrologist of the Truckee Meadows Water Authority that the outlet dam on Donner Lake will not be closed this spring. This means that due to low water levels in the lake, the boat ramp at the Tahoe Donner Beach Club Marina will not be open for launching trailered vessels this summer. 

The Truckee Donner Recreation and Park District’s ramp at the west end of the lake should be available for the summer. We will communicate additional information as it becomes available.

If you have any questions, please contact Ali Kovach, the Tahoe Donner Beach Club Marina manager, at 530-587-9460 or

Marina Grill

Closed for the remainder of the season, as of Sept. 8, 2015.

Watercraft inspections will begin at the Donner Lake Public Boat Launch beginning on May 9, 2015.
