Post up on the dock with your friends and get some sun. Catch the sun disappear over the mountains. Duration: <1 hour.

In the northwest corner of Donner Lake, there are public docks run by the Truckee Donner Recreation & Parks district. It's free to lay out your towels and hang out, but there is a fee for launching boats on the ramp. Come over in the late afternoon, enjoy the sunset, and go for a swim as the sun goes down!
