Splitrock campground in Donner State Memorial Park has 42 campsites. There are restrooms, food lockers, picnic tables, and showers. The campsites aren't particularly spread out, but what they lack in privacy they make up for in proximity to the lake.

This is the closest of the parks three campgrounds to Donner Lake. Even in the summer, this area gets down to the low 40s at night, so come prepared for the mountain air! The scenery and majestic hiking trails will more than make up for it.
