Ridge Campground in Donner Memorial State Park has 59 campsites located right in the middle of this memorial park (and closest to the amphitheatre). The campground has access to picnic tables, restrooms, hot showers and food lockers. In the summer, this campground can book up fast, so book early and enjoy taking full advantage of Donner Lake and all of the park’s recreational activities. No matter what time of year you visit, be sure not to forget what mountain air feels like at night. Hint: pretty darn cold!
