Additional Location Information
Zephyr Cove Resort and public beach is a short walk from the house. The restaurant, general store & gift shop are open year round. In the spring, summer, and fall, the beachfront bar is open, and is a great place to watch the sun set. During the summer, the swimsuit shop, watercraft rental, and parasailing attractions are open. The beach has two sand volleyball courts (the Beachfront Bar & Grill has some rental volleyballs) and a mile of sandy beach with picnic areas and a hiking trail. Year-round boat charter and M.S. Dixie II sternwheeler cruises are also available.
There are lots of things to do for fun and excitement in the surrounded by the El Dorado, Tahoe, and Toiyabe National Forests. For starters, Snowmobiling is offered by the Zephyr Cove Resort in the winter months, and in the summer months enjoy horseback riding at the Zephyr Cove Stables. You will find plenty of national forest hiking trails with spectacular mountain and lake scenery. One easy hike begins just 3 miles north of Zephyr Cove, and leads to the top of Cave Rock. The Desolation Wilderness, Tahoe Rim Trail, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing areas are all within an easy drive. For a challenging hike, try the climb to the summit of Mt. Tallac, in the Desolation Wilderness.
You will find Fishing throughout the area. At the Zephyr Cove Resort (and at the South Lake Tahoe Marina), charter boats can take you out to catch Makinaw Lake Trout and Kokonee Salmon. A few miles north of Zephyr is the Cave Rock public boat ramp and picnic area. A California or a Nevada state fishing license is valid for fishing anywhere on Lake Tahoe, and charter fishing companies can provide a 2-day license. In the surrounding national forests, hikers can find lake and stream fishing.
