The office is in the red building labeled Tri-County Fair. If you'll be arriving after "normal" office hours or on the weekend, call the office and ask for the codes to the restrooms/showers if you'll need them. The park is big rig friendly. The road leading to the fairgrounds is asphalt, but the sites themselves are dirt/gravel. Ours was level. The woman who checked us in was friendly and provided information about things to do in the area. It was quiet during our stay as there were no events. Sites are back-in and the services are near the back of the site. The water pressure seemed to vary. There isn't any privacy barrier between the sites. It was windy and dusty most days we were there. Verizon data and cell service worked well. The park internet was fast. There were a few OTA channels, but no cable. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

We stayed four nights. Night two they had events that were loud. Night three they had an event and left parking lights on all night -shined into our coach all night. Night four they had an event with loud music all night. Car alarms going off etc. Will never stay here again. A truck stop would have been quieter than this place. We had two full timers on each side of us. Can't think of a reason to ever comeback. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

A great place to stay. Basically a dirt parking lot and pretty dusty, but it's the desert! There were several sites large enough for our 38' motorhome; we were one of the largest in the campground. Strong 50 amp service, water & sewer. Excellent bathrooms and showers; very clean and roomy. The only downside was that there was absolutely no provision to hang anything up, unless you used the handicapped shower.
If you enjoy walking at all you can walk to any number of restaurants and retail stores, typically 3-4 blocks away including Von's (Safeway) grocery and K-Mart. Other campers here were very friendly and it was busy with a couple of 'groups' when we stayed. Office people charming & helpful.
We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Bishop is a good place to stay when visiting area attractions. We loved Convict Lake, the Ancient Bristlecone Pines. Those and many other attractions less than hour away. Yosemite (and Mono Lake) maybe 1.5 hours. Very convenient!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

We only found this RV park because of this review site. The facilities are fairly new and they aren't advertising yet. The bathroom building with large social room is nearly completed. This is on the edge of the fairgrounds, and sites are quite close together, but all we needed was a safe and quiet place to park. There are no tables or other amenities. Close to town (and Starbucks with free Wi-fi) is within 2 blocks. Great place to call home while exploring the endless opportunities in the area. Office staff is very friendly. Pay by cash or check. Call the office first for availability. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.
