My Grandpa was one of the first forest rangers at this State Park. So to bring my daughter and granddaughters here was such a pleasure. I used to run around the museum and climb the statue as a young child and roam all around the park...The museum is now rebuilt and the old museum is staff quarters...so much improvement. I love the history of the Donner Party. So many trails to walk on and so much beauty. This is so worth your time!! There is a small parking fee and entrance fee to the museum so prepare.
