Highlands RV Park

Bishop, California

Date of Stay:

A newer well maintained and obviously popular park located just north of Bishop, CA. No Sprint telephone service. Other phone services seem to be OK. Free and strong internet. All facilities clean. Friendly Staff. Appears to be a destination park for hikers, 4-wheelers, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts. Located just outside the city limits.

Date of Stay:

Mostly a fulltime/longtime resident park with lots of shade trees. Park is older well maintained with narrow dirt interior roads. Two large rigs would have trouble passing each other. a Cable TV for a fee but reception poor at the three sites I tested. Free WiFi with decent reception. Road leading to the park lined with trees that need trimming badly. Limbs will drag on your rig unless you swing wide. Served our purpose for a two night rest stop.

Date of Stay:

Our site had an excellent view across the desert and Colorado river of the lights of the casinos in Laughlin, NV. Site was level with clear sky to the south for satellite TV dish. Park was clean and well maintained although as compared to several visits in the past I noticed small amount of trash such as pop cans, cardboard and plastic sacks starting to accumulating along roads and waterways. WiFi for a fee by day, week or month. Convenient location to the casinos just across the river in Nevada.

Date of Stay:

First the highlights: In my 13 years of full time travel this may well be the quietest park I've ever been in. Excellent views. That being said it was also very poorly maintained. Restrooms sinks badly chipped and room in need of paint. Office area hung with blue tarps from water damage. Handrails old and rotting away. Wooden site posts and tables rotting and/or badly in need of paint. If your not self-contained a poor choice. Sites are level but are gravel and dirt that becomes very muddy with minimal rain. Internet sometimes available in office area from 9AM to 1PM. Only time I tried to use it staff hadn't arrived by 9:30AM.

An older snowbird park that has been well taken care of. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is located convenient to freeway but surprisingly quiet. A good location to explore the greater Tucson area. Will stay here again whenever in the area,

Nice and level pull-thrus among older olive trees. Excellent cable TV reception. Grass lawns around each site very green and well maintained. WiFi good. Only drawback was that it was close to the I-5 freeway.

An older park with older facilities many in need of simple TLC. Gravel/grass site surprisingly level. Restrooms adequate but outdated. I consider these shortcomings minor and made up for by the 100 plus elk herd that spent most one afternoon and part of another in and around our camp site. There were several bulls with 5-6 point racks (western count) sparing and in a couple of cases in actual combat. No cable but clear to the south for satellite. WiFi was out of service for maintenance. This was our 3rd or 4th time here and we will camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice fairly level back-ins with full shade under trees. Area very quiet with no road noise. We could actually hear the ocean that was about 1/2 mile away. Close with only a short drive to all that down town Cannon Beach and the beach has to offer. H2O pressure good. Cable TV reception excellent but Wi-Fi very limited.

Ranks with the top 10 parks we've used in our 12 years as full-timers. Check in very smooth by friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. We opted for a waterfront head-in site overlooking the boat basin. Good views of boats and seabirds. Site was very clean and well groomed and maintained . Wi-Fi and phone (Verizon) reception was excellent. Will be a destination the next time through this area.

Date of Stay:

First impressions were that this would be a large, top tier Park. Our site was spacious, on well maintained and level grass. Site was very quiet day and night. Check in office was dark with poor lighting. Small store dark and poorly stocked. We walked the area and never found the advertised boat launch. Price reflects peak rates even though there were only 6-8 units and 2 tent campers present. H2O pressure very low. No Verizon phone reception. Park appeared to have just opened for the season, and not really ready for guests. Under circumstances, it was a poor value for the high price.

Considering how close this park is to the freeway it is surprising quiet especially in the upper level pull-thrus. Park is very clean with small shade trees and very level sites. WiFi reception was excellent. Cable was good. If you have a movable TV dish you should be able to receive satellite TV. Park even offers a free continental breakfast. Only complaint was very low H2O pressure. Overall a nice park for a short stay.

Camp Blanco is a small and older park that is very well maintained with excellent water pressure and WiFi reception. Manager was very friendly and helpful. A minor complaint would be about the entry point which is a short incline from the road. If your tow system hangs low it may drag a little on entry. Neighbors said that the cable reception is excellent and from space 11 we had no problem setting up our dish. When in this area this will be our destination park.

Initial perception from a Google Earth picture and when you first arrive is of a peaceful family park with lots of trees and close to nature. There are lots of fir and maple trees and it is family friendly BUT it butts right up to an AMTRAC RR with trains passing every 30-45 minutes, Throughout the day and night, all of them have to blow their horns or whistles for the nearby RR crossing. Dumpsters were overflowing for the 2 days we were there. When dumping tanks just prior to departure the sewer backed up from the parks end and started to bubble and seep onto the ground. After reporting the problem we moved to the transit dump site which also bubbled over unless you dumped very slowly. WiFi reception good, cable TV reception poor. All in all not a great stay. We will avoid this park in the future.

Don't be put off by entry. You cross a seldom used RR siding track that is a little rough and then enter a park that appears to be almost brand new. Most spaces backup to and overlook the Clearwater River. Sites are blacktop, new and level. Water pressure is excellent. WiFi very good. The manager very nice and helpful, (likes to talk). $5.00 to wash your rig and toad. In short a very nice park. Good phone reception on Verizon. One of the nicer stopover parks going west from Missoula on Highway 12. Water pressure rated at 80 lbs so use a reducer. Note: Never heard a train over the two days we were here. A pleasant two day rest stop.
