Everyone who comes to the marina must check in at the front gate – not just one person in your party. If you are using the launch to swim, paddle or launch your motorized vessel, you must have a Recreation Fee paid or pay the daily member or guest access fees.

Before launching, please make sure all of your required paperwork and stickers are in order. See details below.


Members who wish to launch a trailered vessel at Beach Club Marina are required to register the vessel with Tahoe Donner.


  • Bring a copy of your vessel registration
  • Bring proof of insurance for your vessel
  • Be prepared to sign a release of liability waiver

Additionally, all boat owners are now required to self-inspect their watercraft prior to launching. A self-inspection must be completed prior to receiving a Donner Lake 2024 sticker. Once the form is complete, owners will bring their completed form to the Police Department to be signed. Upon completion, a sticker will be issued.

To view the self-inspection form, click here. Inspection forms will also be found at the Parks and Recreations office and the Police Department.

Police Department:
Monday-Friday | 8AM-4PM (excluding holidays)
Call (530) 550-2323 to arrange to pick up a sticker after hours or to have it mailed to you.
