2 Parks near Zephyr Cove, Nevada
Sep 2012 - $34.00
This is a typical Federal campground with one big plus: it is right on Lake Tahoe with a very nice sandy beach. This campground underwent a major renovation last year with newly paved, expanded sites. Sites are reasonably level and have a fire ring, BBQ and large table. There is a two tier price system. Those sites closest to the lake, designated as “Lake” in Reserve America and Recreation.gov, are $34 per night. Those a little further away, designated “FORE” for forest, are $30 per night. Many of the forest sites have good views of the lake through the pines, however. There are a couple of good hiking/biking paths leading through the adjacent forest and meadows. Bathrooms have flush toilets but no showers are available. Good cell service. No Wi-Fi, although I picked up a signal from a near-by hotel that did not require a password but I was unable to connect. My air card worked fine. Because of the trees, satellite reception will depend on your site. The two campground hosts do an outstanding job of keeping everything clean and tidy. Ordinarily I do not give a dry camping campground higher than 8 stars but the location outweighs the even the lack of showers. - Arn

The campground is across the road from the rest of the resort. We walked the entire campground for exercise after a long drive. The grounds are pretty but the sites are very close together with little to zero privacy. Most of the tent sites are right on top of each other. The restrooms and showers each are individual rooms. The restrooms are very basic. The showers are in serious need of updating. They have concrete floors, some wall damage and old defunct coin machines. The resort does have a lake front beach and is located in a beautiful location. It was very pleasant walking the campground, there is a light so it is easy to cross the highway to get to the main part of the resort and the lake. We had a nice breakfast in the resort restaurant. - 2togoNebraska

We unfortunately got caught without a reservation on a weekend. The name caught our attention, and having had experience with the resort itself felt that the $82 nightly charge was high, but considering it was at the resort we made reservations for two nights. As we arrived, we discovered the RV spots were across the street in a rustic campground, not the resort.
Note the reservation was taken by the off-site central booking agency Amamark; on arrival we found they had double booked us. The desk clerk,made us call the reservation number again to confirm we had made a reservation. Finally the other clerk, drove around and found an empty slot, the last one in the campground.
Worst camping experience ever, never could get the unit leveled. Note picture of picnic table which had been previously leveled by a big rock - totally unsafe. When we checked with adjacent camper as to why we couldn't get the cable to work we were told the front desk should have given you a converter box. When I walked back all the way down the hill, the desk clerk told me she had forgotten to tell us about that and had we called we could have saved us a walk down and back up the hill. So we couldn't watch TV that night. Tried for a good hour to connect with WiFi, and when asked the same clerk about it she told us, well you are in the trees.
We were so fed up that we checked out a day early. When asked about a credit because we didn't get the cable and WiFi we had asked for when we booked, we were told those were "free" services they gave us. - RetiredUSN

This RV park had excellent rating. I'm wondering who actually wrote the reviews. Staff was helpful. Made reservations online through the resort website. Glitch in program and I was put down for a tent site. I called a couple of weeks before the trip and verified my reservations stating that it was for a RV. They did find me a site that even for a short RV it was almost impossible to back into. They are so crammed together we couldn't put out our and people beside us had to pull in there awning. The worst part is the noise from the highway. With all windows closed and earplugs in you can still hear the cars 24 hrs a day. Not worth the money for retired people. - YellowstoneBison
