South Lake Tahoe, Nevada
This is the beautiful east shore of Lake Tahoe, where the action-paced and suspenseful episode "Showdown At Tahoe" was made at in September of 1967, the only one ever at the sandy beaches of Zephyr Cove in Bonanza's history of filming in Nevada. The opening scene of Candy (David Canary) was also filmed here along the beach, nestled under the Ponderosa pines!
DIRECTIONS From South Lake Tahoe: Drive from the south shore along Hwy 50, going east towards Zephyr Cove and Marla Bay, and within 20 minutes it will be on your left side of Hwy 50. There are signs directing you to parking, the beach, and the marina!
