#1 choice of all our clients. By far the best lake in the area Stampede is a favorite among the locals and for good reason, Stampede has lots to offer when you arrive. Lots of parking, Full boat ramp with dock when water is high and is rarely crowded. This low key off grid lake is not far from Truckee (15 min.)


Boca Reservoir. A Favorite among locals. Boca does have a boat ramp but the road to get there is usually closed. Boca does not offer a dock so you will need to walk in the water up to your waist in order to access the boat. Although Boca is not the most convenient lake it makes up for it with warmer water, less crowds and good wind protection.


Donner Lake is beautiful. Located along side hwy 80, right off Donner Pass road. Donner offers a public boat ramp with two docks for easy boat access. Donner is a very crowded lake and even when there is no wind it is very rough due to boat chop.
