This park wins the location award of those in the Lake Tahoe area. After touring some of the other local parks, this one seemed to offer the best of everything. Yes. The sights seem rather close together. Our site 159 is a pull through which seemed to offer more space between sites than many of the others. Bathrooms and showers were clean, maybe a bit dated, but nice. Park is located on HWY 50, a rather busy street, with a traffic light provided for safe crossing to the beach. We enjoyed our stay. Would probably stay again. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Check in was horrendous. Monday afternoon and RVS were backed up to the highway. When I got inside the office there were 7 people in front of me. There was only one clerk and he was doing a fine job with 4 days of experience. The first site that I was assigned had a vehicle parked in it. I went back to the office and luckily got another site. The park was recently taken over by Aramark and obviously needs some organization and training. Lots of highway noise as well. There are NO flat, straight areas to disconnect the toad. Signage to the RV resort said "turn left", when in fact the RV resort was on the right. I was told by a camp host that they've been trying to get the sign changed for years. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The less than satisfactory experience starts when you miss the RV park driveway because of poor/no signs or markings. You are then forced to drive approx. 1 mile to turn around to make it back to the RV park. The next unsatisfactory experience occurs when you encounter the unknowledgeable, unprofessional office staff. We were directed to a site that was occupied and then to a site that was too small for our trailer! After about an hour of the front office personnel trying to locate us a site via their computer system, we were taken to a site that barely accommodated our 30 foot 5th wheel and our tow vehicle! After finally getting into this site, our steps ended at a drop off of about 5 feet to the next camp site. There was no enforcement of the 1 vehicle per site nor how many people at one site. The only good thing I can say about the facility is its location. It is right across the street from the Zypher Cove facilities and beach, so on a holiday weekend, you don't have to drive to get to the beach area. Way to expensive and way to crowded! We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

This is a very nice RV park. The office was very helpful when my 10 year old became sick. We always stay along the trail so there is no one behind you. The lake was low but very beautiful. They have a nice beach and lots to do. We have stayed here before and will return. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Confusion begins when you arrive and seem to be directed to the parking lot on the lake side of the road. Don't go there if you have a big rig! The campground is on the other side of the road and you need to park and go to the gift shop on the other side of the road to register.

The people were friendly but don't have a clue about RVing. They gave us a map and told us how to get to the site. Fortunately, the camp host caught us and helped. The route described could not have been navigated in a big rig. Tons of trees and sharp turns. There did not appear to be a level site that we could use. When settled in the best we could find, our front tires were about 4" off the ground. Obviously we could not hook up our roof top satellite dish. Great for 5th wheels or trailers or C class but not big rigs. We have a 40' RV with tow. Guessing at rate. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV park; although, on the pricey side. Good spacing between sites. On Highway 50, most of the sites back from the road, so there are no issues with car noises. At least while we were there. You can walk from the RV park across Highway 50 (there's a stoplight for pedestrians) and be right at a beautiful beach. There is an " unmarked" hiking trail behind the site if you want to hike through the wilderness. The lodge right across Highway 50 is very nice; although, we didn't eat there. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is full of "big rigs" but friendly is not exactly accurate. The park is very tight within the trees and sites are as close together as possible. We were here one weekend the end of September in a 40' fifth wheel. Overall, the park is clean, the staff friendly, and there is a slight view of the lake which is a 200 yard walk across Hwy. 50 that goes through town. The biggest problem is the noise. First, there is the problem with overcrowding and the fact that this is a "party" area. But the biggest noise contributor is Hwy. 50 which should be renamed Harley Davidson Parade Lane. Unfortunately, there is a stop light at the park entrance so you get to hear the Harleys wind through all gears from sunrise to bedtime. We got 3 nights for the price of 2 which made it $48 per night, but even that was way over priced. We would not stay here again.

Previous reviews talked about a bear in the park - we never saw one. However, if there are, people aren't using the bear proof trash bins correctly. They aren't latching them shut or they're putting trash on top of the containers. Unfortunately, it's going on top because the bins need to be dumped more often as they're full over the weekend. Roads here are tight due to the pine trees, but not a problem if you go slow and others park off the roadway. The Wi-Fi is not good and neither is cell service. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. This is a great location as it's just across the street from the lake. We've stayed here before and would stay again!

This place is a total ripoff. Very tight sites, with no room for even a picnic table (ours was in front of the next site's door). Wi-Fi does not connect. The staff had no idea what was going on. We made reservations 7 months ago and requested a pull-through with room for a tent. We got a Nose-in spot literally on a hillside barely wide enough for our 33' rig, no room for anything else, and the least level spot I have ever been in. When I asked the girl at the counter about it I got a blank stare. Then I asked a manager who was quite annoyed that I bothered him. I will never stay here again. The rates are ridiculous for what you get. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Problem: Most of the sites are nice, but the ones close to the road (Hwy 50) are appalling. When you reserve, you cannot reserve a specific site (unless you book a "premium" site which can only be booked for 2 weeks.) So, it is a real gamble whether you will get a decent site or something that is absolutely unbearable. We booked a 40-ft pull-through site a year in advance and still ended up in the slums. It was a nightmare. All comments about the front office staff not knowing what they are doing are unfortunately accurate, although I'm not sure it's entirely their fault. Problem: If you are close to the highway, be prepared to hear loud trucks using the road throughout the night. Problem: The bathrooms and showers are ghastly. Mgmt has said they will be building new ones. Problem: Overcrowding of sites. Some of the sites are way too cozy, or your picnic table is right next to the dumpster. Problem: Bears. The dumpsters and the campground in general is not bear-proof, and we have had a VERY large bear in our site on more than one night. This happened last summer when we were here, too. Mgmt says they will be taking care of the problem. Problem: Picnic tables. Some are nice, some are full of splinters. Mgmt says that all picnic tables will be replaced within a year. Problem: Noisy campers. We only were awakened one night by rowdy campers at 3:00 a.m. coming back from the casinos, but given the close proximity you hear every conversation. Problem: WiFi is unreliable. Good thing: Great location on Lake Tahoe with a neat beach right across the street. Be prepared for a lot of tattoos. Good thing: The fairly new General Manager seems to be responsive to concerns. Good thing: The lodge has a nice restaurant, there is a snack bar and bar on the beach. Good thing: It's Lake Tahoe. Overall: This has the potential to be a wonderful RV park, but it has been neglected. The bear problem is a real problem and the reservation system is in need of a makeover. Hopefully, the new GM will fix these problems and then this will be a jewel of a park. For now, I would look elsewhere on Lake Tahoe, particularly if you plan to stay for more than a few nights.

The good points of this campground is the Location. Right across the street from the Dixie Queen dock, and all the boat rides. The roads are narrow and winding. The sites are hard to get in, as they are allowing young trees to grow up in places that cause them to interfere with backing in the spaces. Our water faucet for hookups is leaking and has been since before we came. There was also a 500 pound brown bear going through the garbage cans, and when we alerted the park, they said clap your hands. They didn't move really quickly to rid the campground of the bear, and I believe this is a serious threat as they allow tent camping. The sites are narrow and close together. The girl in the office mixed up everyones reservation and put us in the wrong spot, and we paid extra for the specific spot.. I don't think we'll be back.

Great RV resort conveniently located just across the street from the beach and only 5-10 minutes from Lake Tahoe casinos. Hiking and bike trails are close by. The resort is very clean. Friendly staff. Sites are pretty level and well maintained. A few areas of the park are pretty tight for larger rigs due to the large trees all around, but just take it slow and you will be able to navigate through. Be sure to bring jackets, sweaters, and have a heater because Lake Tahoe is at a high enough elevation that it can get pretty cold at night; especially, during the off-season. The least favorite part of the resort for us is that it is literally on HWY 50, so there is always the sound of vehicle traffic; it can be annoying during the middle of the night with semi-trucks driving by. We camped at Zephyr Cove Resort RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
