Nevada Beach and Campground
Zephyr Cove, Nevada 89448
This beach is located about a mile from the parking lot at Highway 50 and Kahle Drive.
A portion of this .7-mile-long beach, one of the most beautiful at Tahoe, is dog-friendly. Most of the strand is attached to Nevada Beach Campground, where dogs are allowed in campsites but not picnic areas near the water. To find the dog-friendly strand, follow the signs and trails to the boat-in picnic beach.
A paved bike trail and maze of hiking trails leads through the section of Toiyabe National Forest bordering the lake. It's about a mile along the historic Lam Watah Trail from the (free) parking lot at Highway 50 and Kahle Drive, just north of the Lakeside Resort Casino. In season (mid-May through mid-October), you can access the beach via the campground when you pay a day-use fee.
Once at the sand, stay right of the fenced-off private beach and left of the orange buoy marking the border of the campground swimming beach.
