Visitor Tips and News About Donner Party Monument - Cannibals!
I'm a bit of a history buff, so when I saw "Donner Camp Picnic Ground Historical Site" my jaw dropped, I started laughing, and just had to pull over for a picture. Did the designer of this park have a sick sense of humor? I perused the grounds, reading over the signage, and it appears there was some glossing over of the more sensationalized aspects of the story. Very interesting, and not a bad place to stop for lunch. I won't be surprised if some entrepreneurial soul starts coming by with a gourmet lunch truck serving Donner Camp themed dishes.[Ransom Stark, 08/02/2012]
