Come to stay and play in Paradise! Welcome to Paradise Shores Camp, Bridgeport Reservoir's full service RV Park & Campground! Our camp is conveniently located to all High Sierra attractions. We believe in campfires, starry nights, good laughs, exploration, a deep sleep and an early rise. We hope Paradise Shores becomes your home as it is ours. All our RV sites have full hookups and internet. We are fortunate to be located right on Bridgeport Reservoir, with its world famous fishing and water sports. The blue ribbon trout fishing of East Walker River is only a short walk. Yosemite National Park, Tuolumne Meadows, Mono, June, Convict, and Twin Lakes as well as Bodie Ghost Town are all within a short drive from our camp. This area is one of the most spectacular in the world and offers exceptional recreational activities. Water skiing, sailing, mountain biking, road biking, hiking, and of course fishing are all readily available right from the property. For the more adventurous, try rock climbing, hiking, snowmobiling and year-round skiing in the backcountry. You may just want to lay in one of our hammocks and read for three days, stargaze, enjoy the campfire and eat s’mores. The possibilities are endless. The Yosemite National Park, which occupies less then 10% of the Sierra Mountain Range, is only a small fraction of the attractions this spectacular area affords. The surrounding terrain offers endless activities and unimaginable scenery in the most remote wilderness settings. Enjoy bird watching?...there are hundreds of different species right here at Paradise Shores. Did we mention the world class fishing? We are the closest lodging and RV facility to the famous Blue Ribbon East Walker River, not to mention the trophy fishery right here at Bridgeport Reservoir. Additionally, all of the other lakes, creeks and rivers are only a short cast away. People travel all over the world to stay with us and fish this unique area. The fish are plentiful here at Paradise Shores, the people are warm and the atmosphere is casual. Bring the whole family, everyone is going to have a memorable time. Return to your senses. Put down your phone and pick up experience, the mountains are calling... Please email us if you have any questions or would like more info.

My wife and I brought our dogs to camp here in our Travel Trailer. We spent 4 nights here and everything from the owners to the RV site to the overall area was phenomenal. The overall property is cozy and romantic. The RV sites are perfect for any size RV. The property included dog friendly amenities and easy access to the beautiful Bridgeport Reservoir. We were under an hour away from several lakes and just over an hour away from the majestic Mammoth Ski Resort. We will absolutely be coming back here in the future!

It has taken me over a week to decide what to write because I was so disappointed and upset by my experience with the hosts at Paradise Shores. FIRST BRING LOTS OF MOSQUITO REPELLENT!! Don't expect much shade, not many mature trees, and the reservoir does not look as good in person, even my kids didn't get all the way in. Look out for dog poop, people don't like to clean up after themselves and there were dogs off leash roaming around. My story, (during Covid-19 June 9-11-2020) As soon as we arrived at the campsite they greeted us at the window of my truck and said hello. The 2nd thing out of their mouth was "Do you have a bathroom in your trailer?" to which I replied yes, but we never use the shower because it is so small and difficult to use (I have a pop up hybrid tent trailer). Then the man (I never got his name) went on to tell us how we couldn't use the bathroom and that it was too much work for them to keep it open for everyone so only campers who did not have bathrooms like tent campers or rvs without bathrooms could use it. At this both my mom and I groaned. The reason I was so inclined to pick this particular campsite was because of the fantastic reviews on how nice the bathrooms are and welcoming the hosts were, BOTH false. After they told us we could not use the bathroom the camp host handed us a map which had the bathroom code on it, he then again told us NOT to use the bathroom. He never once told us about the area or the campsite or anything in a welcoming manner. He helped me back my trailer in and that was that. While we were at Paradise Shores I would say they were at half capacity if even that. It was very quiet and not a lot of activity going on, (since CA was technically still in shelter in place) there were 3 tent campers (1 only stayed 1 night), and maybe 5-6 trailers, and out of their own rentals 1 was occupied while we were there. After a day out my kids wanted to go down to the beach and play. When we came back everyone wanted to take a shower. So YES I did break their rule, my sons and I grabbed our gear and hustled to the bathroom to take a shower. Before I could put the code into the restroom I was accosted by both Veronika and her husband. I was shocked at how they jumped on me in front of my kids. They got right in my personal space asking me why I was "sneaking into the bathroom" and began admonishing me for not finding them and asking them for permission. They again told me how we were not allowed to use their restrooms and how I was making things harder for them... I explained that I did not see them and we were just trying to get in and out as quickly as possible because we were just at the beach and that I never use the shower in my camper and we only use it to pee and poo. I also explained one of the reasons we booked their campsite was the great reviews of the bathrooms. I explained to them that a nice bathroom is something important to me when I travel with my kids and mother. This interaction was so awkward and aggressive and it made me feel absolutely terrible but they relented and let us use the bathroom. This whole interaction upset me so much because I could not understand why they were so dead set on not letting us use the bathroom when there were so few people there. They could have easily bent the rule for us, we only wanted to take a quick shower while no one else was even interested in using the bathroom at that time. What if my bathroom was out of order in my trailer? I suppose I should have lied to them. No where on their website did it say trailers that have inoperable bathrooms may not come... After that incident I decided I no longer felt comfortable at their campsite and we would find somewhere else to stay. I let them know via email that we would be leaving in the morning. Around 7:30pm the husband came by to let me know he got the email and basically wanted to explain to me how he was right and I was wrong??? There was no apology or anything like that. I don't know what his point was but I expressed how uncomfortable I felt and how he could have handled the situation differently because in their covid-19 rules it also states campers must wear masks (as per the county) unless at their own site. I pointed out to him how he and other campers were breaking the Covid-19 rules by not wearing their masks when in common areas. I also mentioned that there were 2 dogs wandering around the camp off leash which was also breaking another camp rule. So why did he decide that I should be reprimanded for my actions which left me feeling embarrassed and humiliated? At that point I said goodnight and went into my trailer. The next day he let me know he would refund my money and that he was sorry there had been a misunderstanding to which I agreed and left. So there you go I would never go back.

Response from , Owner at Paradise Shores RV Park
Responded Jul 17, 2020
Hello Catherine and thank you for taking the time to write such a lengthy review. We appreciate any opportunity to make improvements, and will address your recommendations promptly. First though, some of the points you make we can not change. I know it's hard to believe but we rarely if ever have mosquitos. We do however have mayflies. A lot of mayflies, and they feed the abundant birds and fish. Mayflies do not bite, ever. Did you notice the scores of colorful birds? We enjoy allowing cool dogs here, it is a big part of who we are. We have a huge leash free area and a dog wash. We request they be leashed while at the campground. The unleashed dog you referenced is my dog Clyde and he is our guiding mascot. He won't be leashed. He is old and kind, and I hope you did not feel threatened by him. Covid-19 has required many unwanted changes for all of us. Communicating those changes to our guests has been a challenge. We strive very hard to do the right thing to safeguard: first our beloved employees, second our guests and third the greater public. Our website prominently displays those mandated rules. When a guest makes a booking, we send a second detailed outline of the rules and this year's camp adjustments. In your case, once you reached out to us, we highlighted from the outset that this year, due to Covid-19, our communal bathrooms' use is limited. We made sure your trailer has its bathroom and that you'd be ok using it, which you confirmed. Finally, when you arrived at the camp, we reiterated these guidelines in person, to ensure you understand them. Having said all that, we are people too, with parents, children, dogs, good days and bad. We understand special circumstances and we are more than happy to bend the rules if we can. We just need to be asked. When we feel someone is sneaking around our backs or has taken advantage of us, it hurts us to the core and perhaps we don't always react appropriately. I am sorry Cat if you did not feel we handled your situation correctly. I will make a better effort next time I am confronted with a similar situation to be more understanding. Alan P.- Camp Host and Owner

This is a great campground on the shores of the reservoir. The entire places shows true pride of ownership with the little touches you don't expect to see. Kelly and Charlie were very helpful and very welcoming . We stayed in our 5th wheel but they also have several really neat trailers available to rent that looked very inviting. They have an outdoor kitchen available for all to share Qtips in the bathrooms BBQ sauce and other items provided at the outdoor kitchen A+++ Great place , Great people Highly recommend

Stayed here for two nights this summer and loved the experience. We felt welcomed from the first moment we checked in and the park is well laid out with a lot of charm. We had a large corner spot with a nice grass area and shade tree with a great view of the reservoir (which really should be called a lake for how beautiful it is). An unexpected gem just off the highway. If you are traveling in this area, we recommend it!

This small RV park has so much charm. Manager Kelly and her husband were so welcoming and helpful. On the reservoir, you have access to 2 kayaks and 2 paddleboards. Showers and restrooms were cute and clean. Saturday night a common campfire was scheduled and many enjoyed the guitar and vocals as we all sang along. What fun! We originally were scheduled for 2 nights on our road trip, but added another night to see more sights. Close to Bodie, the old ghost town. Close to Twin Lakes. HOT springs were a 15 minute drive away. Lots to see. Hiking trails for easy and expert all nearby. Just be sure to gas up and have all your supplies because prices are sky high in Bridgeport. We will be back.

The kids were initially disappointed when we pulled in as it felt like a typical parking lot camp ground but they were quickly sold on its unexpected excellence. The owners are super friendly and kind. The views are breathtaking and the bathrooms are exceptional. Really appreciated the community feel and were only able to stay one night but wish it were longer!!

For starters the camp hosts Charlie and Kelly are AMAZING! We staid for 8 days and wished we didnt have to leave! We had a group of 15 people coming out for the 4th of July. Of course we had many different vehicles and some coming out on different days etc. From booking until leaving they made everything extremely easy and accommodating. We loved the communal area with a sink, cooking space, very large table and fire pit area. My 3 year old son met many other kids and there was so much room to run and play. He loved the boat sandbox, he spent a few hours in there. The camp has a few paddle boards and kayaks which we made much use of and greatly enjoyed! We loved that you can tent camp as well as trailer camp. The location was perfect, right in the water and a short drive to Bridgeport. Every Saturday they do s'mores and music at the firepit for the whole park. (Charlie and Kelly are very musically talented btw). We loved our trip so much we will be staying here every year. Thank you paradise shores for an amazing trip!

This place was great! Clean bathrooms with free showers (always a plus). Dog friendly camping right on the lake. Community kitchen and social area was awesome. The camp hosts (Charlie & Kelly) really were the “icing on the cake” thanks for serenading us with your beautiful music!!! Cheers!

Wow, wow, and wow. My husband is usually very critical and not easily impressed, but Paradise Shores definitely has set the bar high and it would be a tough act to follow. Originally, we booked a tent site for 3 nights. However, due to weather and high wind, we decided to move to one of their trailers on the second night and stayed in for 2 nights. Stayed at their Denali, and had a great time. The property is very well maintained, and their communal bathrooms were immaculately clean. On top of that, staff were also amazing. Kelly and her husband were so friendly, helpful and warm. We didn’t get to meet Veronika and Alan. If we go back to the area, we will definitely stay there again!

We enjoyed our two nights in this RV park near Bridgeport. The location is sublime; step out of your trailer and be overwhelmed by the surrounding mountains. The bath/shower rooms are clean and quaint, with lovely amenities and decor. Only drawback might be the small spaces.
