This is one of our favorite places along 395 in Eastern CA. I would give it a 10 if it had cable and sewer hookups. Large, shady spaces, clean showers, nice staff, and ice cream after dinner make it a great overnight stop. There is a small restaurant serving pub food, but we have never used it. It's along the highway, but very quiet. That area is very hot, but cools down nicely at night. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Motorhome.

Contrary to other review, toilets and showers were in good shape. Very friendly and responsive hosts..shut the yapping dogs up on request. Some people do not get it... their dogs are a nuisance especially when they leave and dogs remain to bark all day in their rig! Very nicely shaded larger spaces, but some 'hard to get DISH and DIRECT..select the sites along the golf course to get satellite. Pretty quiet for the amount of folks here... reasonable and nice place...would come again. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Let me start by saying I really like this property. The sites are fairly large, grassy, and tree covered. I also like the fact that half the sites have no hookups, thereby attracting lots of tent campers. So you end up with a pleasantly diverse group of campers. It's like a big friendly park. The owners seem to take good care of the lawns, watering frequently. But the facilities are in bad shape. In the last 24 hours, I've witnessed one overflowing toilet, one bathroom stall without a lock, a sink with only a trickle of water, a shower that went back and forth hot and cold. I just don't understand why the owners would let this lovely park deteriorate. I would gladly pay more per night for upgraded facilities. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly people, clean restrooms, love the shade trees and the sound of water sprinklers through out the day. Close to awesome fishing. Great family camping! We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very narrow sites, almost like a parking lot. Showers require tokens (not quarters), but office fails to mention that when you check in. OK, for an overnight (water and 30 amp electric only), but a Wal-Mart parking lot or the Paiute Casino provides more space and is cheaper. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park. Lots of big shade trees. Nice grassy areas with picnic tables. I was disappointed about the lack of internet or sewer hook ups. The restrooms were clean. Pay showers, 7 minutes for $1. Also had to pay $5 to dump. Excellent cable TV channels, you pay extra for it though. Worth it for us. Would camp here again.

It is a nice clean park which we used for only overnight stays to and from Anaheim. A late check-in was available. There are no sewer hookups at site but dump station available. We would stay there again and already did. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic. Nothing really special. Has lots of trees, big rocks, and grass everywhere. Tight spots, especially considering the trees and boulders. Of course, the grass areas need to be watered, so beware of "errant rainbirds" interrupting your camping experience, when you least expect it. This is listed as a Good Sam CG, but they wouldn't accept ours, or any other membership, because "of the size of our rig." Despite almost the exact same overall situation a year ago when our GS membership was accepted with the same rig. Hmmmm. I've given them a generous '8' and wouldn't have increased it even if there wasn't the discount problem. I doubt we'll be stopping here again.

Park was cute and front desk gal very nice and helpful. We had a good spot with a wide space and grass and trees behind our MH with nice view of golf course and mountains. I would rate this park much higher if they would have just charged a couple dollars more for space instead of charging a dollar for a few minutes of shower and $5.00 to dump. No dump station at site. I hate this extra few bucks for everything. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this campground! Large grassy sites. great for tents or trailers. There is some traffic noise, but its more like white noise, and will block out the sounds of your fellow snorer. Also the showers and bathrooms were very clean. 1 dollar for 1 token which gives you 7 mins of hot water. Cold shower FREE. had a great stay, we will definitely come back. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Tent.

Very nice park. It's very well-maintained, clean and friendly. Beautiful golf-course setting. Only stayed one night, but would seek it out again. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice and roomy sites but without sewers. Borders a golf course, so you can watch the players progress from hole to hole. Situated on the south side of Bishop several miles from downtown. Our truck was in the shop and we were glad to find that Bishop has a “Call a Ride” service that can pick you up and get you to wherever you want to go for a very small fee.

We tent camped here for 1 night (2 adults and 4 kids). Tent site was nice grass with some sandy areas. Kids enjoyed the playground. Restrooms were clean, hot showers with tokens ($1 for 7 minutes of hot water). Only 2 complaints. People walking their dogs on the tent sites; and a giant overhead security light right in the middle of the tent sites. I don't understand why that is necessary. It is surely obnoxious to tent campers. Nice views of the Sierras. We would stay here again. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Tent.

Pretty spot next to a golf course. Limited spots with cable TV. No sewer hook-ups. Has a small restaurant/store with a pleasant seating area. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Motorhome.

Limited number of sites with TV cable, water and electricity. The remaining RV sites have electricity and water only. Most of the sites are shaded with lots of grass throughout the park. There is a small store and cafe on site. Although the park is adjacent to Highway 395, road noise did not bother us. All in all this is a nice park with easy access to Highway 395 and convenient to downtown Bishop. The only negative we found was the $5.00 charge to use the dump station (non-guest dump charge was $12.00). We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Brown's Town Campground in a Motorhome.
