This is a desert campground on the edge of a man made lake. Sites have water and electricity and a dump station. Campsites appear all to be level and there are two large grass areas. Shade is sparse and while this would be a nice winter campground it will get very hot here in the summer. Restrooms are campground and heavily used as there are tent campers here too. Restrooms and showers are kept quite clean even through a bit worn. They do have small bugs that are attracted to the lights so an early morning shower must be shared with these small critters! Showers are 50 cents for three minutes so plan on spending a dollar! A nice stop for a day or two with some very beautiful and rugged mountains in the background. Easy access and friendly staff. There is a sheriff shooting range at the other end of the lake so campers will hear shooting in the distance from time to time, but never at night. Each site has a fire ring and a metal picnic table. lakeside campsites all have a view of the lake and mountains.

Older Casino RV park. Has both view lots and transit lots in a multi tiered park. Easy access for all sizes and types of RV's This park has been here a long time and is a bit worn due to heavy long time usage. It could use a little sprucing up but is adequate and close to amenities and casinos.

This park appears to be an older park. The park is all gravel as it is a desert park. Staff was very friendly and helpful even though it was the first day of the Quartzite RV show and things were quite hectic. A number of RV'ers appeared to be snowbirds spending the winter. The park have room for the largest rigs with plenty of room to maneuver. Good electricity, water, and sewer connections and they all worked! With a few steps of a restaurant and convenience store. Close to all the activity in Quartzite during the season. All campsites are level with few trees to block satellite signals.

This is truly what would be called a Resort. The property caters to the 55+ crowd and to snowbirds. Families and children are always welcome with only one swimming pool that is limited to adults. Park is pet friendly with a lot of wide open spaces for walking along with many different types of activities going on much of the day. There is a restaurant, small store, and a twice weekly farmers market for supplies. We found staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend this as a fall, winter, spring trip as summers here are very hot.

This park is a hidden jewel for the Bishop area. it is located at the Tri-county fairground. All spaces are back in, so when pulling a toad you will need to unhook prior to pulling into the parking area itself. There is plenty of room to maneuver, hook and unhook. Basically it is a parking lot with full service hookups on a dirt and gravel area. There are lawns in the fairground and that is accessible to the RV park. Few trees to block satellite receivers. Restrooms and showers are new and spotless. Easy walking distance to stores, restaurants and Shutz Bakery. At $25 a night it is a great deal for the traveler or the person who is staying a few days in the area. Not fancy, but plenty or room to maneuver your rig, and the park is very clean.

This is a favorite park to stay overnight or a week. We stayed this time four days while exploring the many interesting places near this park. Staff if friendly and helpful. They have just recently added a massive dog run complete with poop gloves and water dishes for pets. The park is very pet friendly just asks that you clean up after your animal. We did not use the spa or the showers this time, but the grounds seem to be a bit better maintained than they have been in the past. A very nice place to stay!

This park is always a favorite of ours and a very good RV destination for the San Diego area. We have stayed here a number of times and have always had a good experience. It did seem the park was a bit worn this time and that probably was due to what appeared to be heavy usage. As fast as one rig pulls out, another will pull into the same space thus there is little time for sprucing up the site for the new tenant. We found park staff friendly and helpful. Easy walking to restaurants and the harbor. One useful upgrade we found this time was that keys to access points have been changed to combination keypads. No key deposits or carrying of keys necessary! The park has cable TV, and if planning to do satellite, check in advance as a number of the sites are shaded thus blocking signals. Park is also very dog friendly and has three dog areas within easy access to different parts of the park. Even though this is a busy park and spaces are tight for the bigger rigs, we have found neighbors to be helpful in moving vehicles and spotting each other when needed. You will not be disappointed when visiting this RV park!

This park is a spotlessly clean, well laid out park with easy access to major roads. It is an "adult" park and has few amenities. Does not have showers or restrooms but does have a laundry with new, clean machines. Each site is huge, with parking for two vehicles in addition to the RV. The site also has room for a free standing canopy and other picnic gear. We had our own Wi-Fi so did not use the park's but it was offered free. 4G signal is very strong in the area for both AT&T and Verizon. For those campers not having satellite local TV reception seemed to be popular. Very pet friendly. Lots of restaurants and provision stores in the area. Easy access to all San Diego Destinations and Mexico. It is possible this park will become condos in a few months but that is not certain at this time.

An older park, but well maintained. There seem to be a number of long term folks staying here, but all sites are kept up and folks we talked to friendly. Each site has a cement pad, table and narrow but adequate black top parking site. Numerous free cable channels. We had our own Wi-Fi so cannot comment on the parks free service. The park is handy to local businesses, even though located right on Highway 395. The park is quiet.

Limped in on a Sunday evening with a disabled tow vehicle. Had called them prior to arrival and had been given a direct in site via phone. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park is clean, easy access with a small store and gift shop. The pool and jacuzzi were busy, but a welcome relief after traveling. Only negative thing was that we did encounter some brisk winds for the afternoon. Seems most of the travelers are overnighters with a few permanent sites. We have stopped here several times in the past and have never had a bad experience!

This is an older campground with a number of long term tenants. The campground was adequate, but the price was very high for quality of the campground. There did need to be some minor repairs in the showers, and the electric pedestal only had a 50 amp outlet (had an adapter to 30 amps). Many sites are pull-through and are gravel or dirt. Just was not up to par for the price charged. Our price was after the Good Sam Discount. Prices at this park are as high as $49 per night.

After reading some of the previous ratings, and after walking around the park, I wondered if I was at a different location! Perhaps the management has changed, but what I found was a park located in a meadow setting with a small irrigation canal and lake. There are a number of trees around so a camper has a choice of being in the sunshine or finding a shaded site. The restrooms and showers were older block construction (this is fairground property), but the showers and restrooms were clean, swept, and dry. Showers were free and upon check in each camper is given a lock combination for the facility. Parking is on gravel/dirt (remember this is a fairground parking lot!) but we found dried forest grass at our campsite. One can buy a newspaper at the park office but anything else can be obtained in town which is close. Good value for the money, easy access and this is a park we would come back to again.

This is a rustic US Forest Service campground located at 10,000 feet. It is one of the closest parks to Bodi State Historic park. The camp host was helpful and they take the federal senior pass. Have vault toilets and no showers. They do have water. A steep climb for RVs so only smaller ones recommended. Quiet and abundant fishing in several lakes. They do have bears. A great rustic campground if you like high altitudes!

Very clean park on the Nevada / California boarder. Each site is paved and you step out of your RV onto soft grass! Very nice and relaxing. Casino, restaurant and small store across the parking lot from the RV park. A bit pricey but this is Reno and the park is spotless. Have stayed here before and will stay here again when in the area.

This is a spotlessly clean park. Easy access off SR 395 with a restaurant on site for breakfast and lunch. Price seemed a bit high for a basic facility. Last stopped here two years ago and have been treated well both times by staff. When calling ahead to check for availability ( Holiday) they said they only had a few spaces left and wanted to lock us in with pre-pay. On arrival the place was almost empty and remained so. Still a nice park, clean, well maintained and with only a little highway noise.
