This is a review of the RV campground. We stayed at site 121 which is bordered by the woods, so the back of the RV had a beautiful view. The campground is dotted with gorgeous tall trees and is surrounded by woods in the back and sides. What sets the Zephyr Cove beach apart from others in the south of Lake Tahoe is the blue color of the crystalline clear waters (unlike, for instance, Pope and Kiva beaches across the lake). We were also impressed by the amenities such as the 4 beach volley courts, kayaks, jet skis, paddle boats rentals, although prices were high: for instance $35/hr for a 2 person kayak. Another advantage is the proximity to Stateline and the Heavenly gondola. The only drawback was that the campground is separated from the beach by noisy route 50 with fast heavy traffic, whose noise you can hear from the campground. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here at the RV park for a couple of nights while on a road trip.
I can find no way to justify the $80+ ($70+ after AAA discount) they charged me per night.
Yes, they have cable service and sewer at the spot. But that's where the perks end. Their WiFi is a joke. The lot is very crowded with hardly any dirt or trees between adjoined RV spots.
The beach is very nice, but not uncomparable to other nearby beaches (specifically at South Lake Tahoe, where an RV spot costs exactly half).

The site itself is decent, but for that price I'd suggest driving another 5 minutes and staying at one of the California side parks.

Cabin and entire property clean and well maintained including the beach. Staff at cabins, restaurant and cafe attentive and courteous. Good location for exploring other areas of the lake. Dinner cruise on Dixie II was great fun.

Room Tip: Nice to have fully equipped kitchen

Family stayed in the RV Park at Zephyr Cove in Nevada. We are adventureous and love nature, animals, and being outdoor. On our first night there, a 300 lb black bear was running through the RV sites and came again at 2:00 pm in the afternoon, and came again next morning. After the first siting, a worker said, "yay, he comes through every week a few times to eat at the dumpsters." Granted, there are "be aware of bears" posted on the dumpsters, however, it would have been an excellent idea to have the Lodge Attendant tell us this information when we checked into the RV Park. There were toddlers (under the age of 3 at many of the RV sites) running around that evening and family members were walking around to shower, lodge area by themselves. If we knew a bear walks through your park on a frequent basis, we would have never allowed our children and adults walk alone. Verbal communication is paramount and for the safety of the guests.

My wife and I had 3 night stay in a studio cabin. WiFi worked great!
Awesome view of the lake and grounds from the cabin deck. There were several other cabins that had even better view, we'll get one of those next time!
Cabin was clean, bathroom a bit cozy (small) but not a problem. Loved having a kitchen and cable TV. Close to South Lake and shopping, nice short drive to Incline Village. Lots of activities for all ages. Nice, clean beaches, water craft rentals, and Steam Paddle Boat cruises leave several times daily from the dock right at the facility. Restaurant/Bar was absolutely awesome, the food is fantastic. We will definitely be back! This is our new favorite place to stay in the Tahoe area.

Room Tip: Try to get a cabin down close to the lake, they have an awesome sunset view!

3 Concerns in addition to the room itself.

1) Upon check in, I requested for an upgrade and willingly offered to pay the difference in cost. Was informed that there was no room for two consecutive nights, to mean, have to change room for each night.

2) Room Lodge 4. Was hot, smelled of oil and kitchen exhaust, no ventilation, no air condition and very noisy. I informed the reception of the heat, a fan was brought up to my room.

3) I responded to a "customer service" survey and shared the concerns identified above. Mr. Rick Douglas, who identified himself as the site manager. After going through my concerns, he reassured me that he will speak to all reception staff to accommodate customer request for an upgrade when possible. I learned through Mr. Douglas that there was in fact "rooms" for two consecutive nights. He then offered to refund a discount of 20%. I then said, action speaks louder than words and look forward to receiving the discount. He also verified if the email address was current, I responded with a yes.

It's been 2 weeks since Mr. Douglas and I spoke, and no discount has come through.

Room Tip: Avoid Lodge Room 4.

Rented a one bedroom cabin for 3 nights. It was very clean and well kept. Loved the gas fireplace in the living room and outdoor porch with the lake and mountain view. Just a stones throw away from the beach front access. Great beach and wonderful place to stay.
