We stayed here during the Mule Days in Bishop.

Grassy sites, pretty level, water and 30 amp electric, with no sewer, rigs need to be self contained .

Pump truck is available for a fee. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

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. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

This is a convenient and easy to access campground. Very typical of fairgrounds, it is gravel, but the sites have plenty of room. Each site has a standard with 50, 30, and 20 amp service. There is water and sewer convenient to each site. The rest rooms and showers are clean. Plenty of hot water and the building is heated. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

This is only the second time I have driven through a campground where I had a paid reservation, looked around for other human beings, and then left because it was so creepy. The few RVs there looked abandoned because no lights were on and no one was sitting or walking around. Could not find a camp host either, and there was no office I could find. (It was late in the day, so people should have been around.) This is basically a parking lot in the fairgrounds and did not look secure or safe enough for me to stay. Yes, it might be cheap, but not worth the low cost to me, especially since I am a female solo traveler. I went to one of their competitors down the road and felt much safer. I will not go here again.

Least expensive full hookup park in town. Convenient to town, quiet at night, good Verizon signal. But I would not stay here again, it is nothing but a dirt parking lot. Despite the park being almost empty, two nights in a row the staff put new arrivals right next to us. It seems like it would be a common courtesy to leave space between RV's when a park has dozens of empty spaces. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice overnighter, level spots, water, sewer, electric and wifi. At the fairgrounds, friendly staff. Spot 28 has shade. Would stay here again. Gravel but not dusty. Very clean. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Travel Trailer.

I reviewed this CG in Nov 2013 and gave it a 9. This time it's an 8 because we're here for Mule Days, a week long town event that attracts upwards of 30,000 attendees, many in RVs. We're in a dry camp area and it's quite pleasant but, and this is a big but, there are only two shower facilities. Of course, we can shower in our rig but that quickly depletes our 35 gal fresh water and fills the holding tanks. To have the "honey wagon" service our rig costs $55 ($20 fresh water, $35 to empty tanks.) Next time, we'll know to reserve a FHU site. To be fair, we should have asked about the water/sewer situation when we made our reservations. The $16 rate is a weekly rate of $115 divided by 7. Big plus for Bishop residents, they're very friendly and welcoming of tourists. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stop for a few days. It isn't fancy but the location is great for walking to anywhere in town. Restroom and shower facilities are new and clean. Office staff is very sweet and welcoming. It was quiet at night and early mornings. We would stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Travel Trailer.

We were happy to find this clean in-town site for a quick overnight sleep and a large place to walk our dogs. We came in after the office closed so could not access Wi-Fi but we could have called ahead for the code. Next morning, office staff was very friendly and thanked us for choosing the fairgrounds. Bathrooms and showers were large, spacious, and very clean. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Great park for the price. Best, cleanest bathrooms and showers I've seen/used in a long time. No odd, picayune rules. It would be a 10 if it had laundry facilities. No Wi-Fi or cable but we use Millenicomm for internet and have never connected or used cable TV in 7 years. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

How you like this one is going to depend on what you're after. No WiFi. No cable TV. We couldn't get over-the-air TV either, but very few obstacles for satellite. It's far more dirt than gravel, but this appropriate for the Eastern Sierra. (After visiting almost 40 RV parks in the last year, this is the first where we used one of those big patio rugs to minimize the dirt we tracked in!). The RV park part of the fairgrounds was hard for us to find. (Off of 395, entrance to the RV park is off of Sierra.) Plenty of sites are available that would handle even the largest rigs. Hook-ups are where they should be for motorhomes. The park has what we look. It was, with one exception, very quiet. It is level and satellite TV friendly. All for a great price. A word of caution however. The community appears to make, appropriately, good use of the fairgrounds. While we were there, a group rented one of the halls and played very loud music from 7:30pm until midnight. Also, two different high school groups were using the area, including the back of the campground, to work on homecoming floats. The kids were all very well behaved though. We will definitely stay here again. It is a very central location for exploring from Mammoth to Lone Pine, but we will check the fairgrounds' calendar of events first.

The fairground is in walking distance of Bishop. The entire campground is on packed gravel and all sites are straight back-ins. The utilities are in the outer middle side of the sites. There is enough width within each of the sites to park your RV and vehicle. There is FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service at each site and the voltage was good. There is also plenty of room to back in the rig. The bathroom/shower building is brand new and very clean. There is a separate room within the bathroom for 3 shower stalls. Unfortunately you can not lock the shower room. The campground does not have WiFi but our Verizon air card and cell phone worked will here. There was some noise from US-395 during the morning “rush hour” but it was not bad. The price reflects a weekly rate. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area.

I rate this place to stay as a nine. It is off the road and $25 dollar a night. Very clean restrooms and bathrooms; they look like they were just made. No fuss, no hassle with getting a spot; just drive down the road, pick one, back in, and go to the office. Paid by check and that was just fine by them; no drivers license, no license plates, just welcome and glad you are staying with us. I will stay here again when I am in the area. It is an all gravel parking lot where you park but fairly level, and the facilities are located in the proper place for hook ups.

What a surprise! Great price, very quiet sleep, sparkling new bathrooms & showers. A new favorite overnight spot. But even though it is first come, first served, they recommend you check availability (due to events at the Fairgrounds). We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.
