This is one of the worst parks we have stayed in for the last 5 years, never mind the crazy price! You enter the registration via a steep winding paved road. We are 43' plus tow. The approach road had very tight turns which @ 43' we had front wheels mounting the R curb at the same time the rear wheels and tow were up on the opposite L curb. We paid $79!!! For one of the top 3 Executive pull thru sites #17. After you pull forward from registration Steep slope down into site, big scary trees either side, left side inches away prevented putting slide out and uneven! The RV helper said the site wouldn't work!!! She also said we had to back out because the exit going forward was too tight, and the exit road had collapsed on a tight turn out! We hit the tree on R side exiting. Nightmare! Wife in tears. Only 3 sites for 40' plus. We backed into a 40' site extending out. The whole RV park is an ugly dust bowl! Looks like a Mars landscape! Ugly to look at! Not a blade of grass anywhere, double ugly! We returned from the park after dark. Whole park, entrance and approach in total darkness, scary! Not a single light in the whole park! Cable is so bad it's unwatchable, and they know it. We called the office multiple times between 9 and 10.30 and got answer machine? Went to office and always 2-3 reps??? Internet is unusable. AT&T one bar, but LTE, very slow but usable. The positive reviews are for the cabins, yurts and permanent tents. If you are over 40' avoid at all costs, or risk damage to your unit. As a non refundable pre pay we couldn't wait to leave. avoid, avoid, avoid. - JeffK

Good location (20 miles) from Yosemite if you don't want to stay in the park with no services. Price is high for what you get. Pool is outstanding and we enjoyed clean showers and outdoor movies. The site we had was really not big enough for our big rig and the interior roads are not very maneuverable for big rigs. The laundry has no change machine or information as to length of cycles. There are no places to sit while doing laundry except on a bench in the sun. Quarters for laundry only available up a steep hill at the office. The variable pricing policy (two types of rates- one with all funds forfeited if cancel) is unusual for an RV park. - Betsy from Ohio

We chose this park because of the quality of their sister park in Arkansas. Was disappointed that the sites were so close together and interior roads were tight. You have to disconnect the tow before being escorted down a steep hill to get to your site. The dog park is full of grass burrs so had to groom the dog every time she went out. The laundry was clean but could use an air conditioner. Windows were open but hot inside. There were quite a few of mature trees in the park that provided some shade. I think this was a former KOA. You can tell they have made lots of improvements but need to do more. It's a little pricey but pretty close to Yosemite NP. - Possumvalleybrndr

This review is specifically for the newly revamped Lost Lake Campground adjacent to the day use park itself. It is actually in the town of Friant, a few miles east of Fresno. Fresno County has done a terrific job morphing a formerly rundown campground into a really nice County Park which reopened late 2017. The interior roadways are all paved as are the campsites. Each site can handle RVs some of which are big enough to accommodate 36-foot long RVs with slide outs. Tenting is allowed. There are no hookups at the sites otherwise the rating would be an 8. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean.The trees are beautiful and could provide nice shade during the hotter times of the year. Each site has a large picnic table and a fire ring. There is a permanent camp host to collect the overnight fees, answer questions and provide an additional level of security. There are 42 sites, a few of which have a view of the river. Even without the river view the setting is so peaceful. Portable generators are allowed at certain times of the day.The price is $25 per night with significant discounts for disabled veterans and senior citizens. It is important to note that this campground, while contiguous to the day use part of the park, is off limits to day use folks. Nice County campground. - exportman

Overall a good campground for visiting Yosemite and Sequoia national parks if you wish to be away from the crowds . Very quiet and hidden with excellent water and electric, No sewer Wi-Fi or cable. Plenty of OTA channels. Gated and locked at night and patrols by national park service. Bathrooms and showers need a good cleaning. Would stay again. - Biggyrat

Nice campground with great views of Hensley Lake. Unfortunately in 2017 the lake is very low. Located in the desert so don't be surprised to see lots of dry dead grass as you enter the campground. Great central location to drive to both Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. Long but scenic drives. - Kansas Traveler

The restrooms are adequate and the showers are decent, however they need a good scrubing. Smiley around the bottom and corners. Could use an exhaust fan also. - db77

There are no signs telling you where to camp We we're lucky to see some other campers already set up so we found our way in. We arrived after 5 and there wasn't anyone on duty The place is a wide open grass area with some trees. Hook ups are scattered around with no site numbers. Apparently you can camp on the grass with out hook ups also. It's a great place to send the night while traveling the Central Valley - Grovester

We wanted to find a stop north of Bakersfield when leaving California. Found this place online decided to give it a go. It is very close to highway 99 but highway noise is minimal. All of the sites are on grass and some sites have sewer and 50 amp. We had choice of sites as there is only one other camper in the park. The facility is nice a bit of a challenge to find if you don't have directions. They have washrooms but need a code which we didn't get. There also appears to be Wifi but again we didn't get the code, but were able to us Lowe's. We certainly will stay again. - mamestra

We stayed at Blackstone North and were very happy with the park. The grounds were clean, well kept. The 2 ladies in the office were very helpful and nice. They went out of their way to find us a nice spot. I would recommend to everyone to stay here. - Angie Jackson

I'm a full timer RV. This is my base park and pay monthly. There has been some management changes and they are adjusting. The parks location to shopping and restaurants is excellent. It appears that the park is in transition but I am hopeful it continues to add maintenance personnel to keep grass cut and sites clean. Overall, from my limited experience, the park is quite adequate. - Pugdaddy

This is an old park they are making an effort to clean it up it is convenient to everything and pretty much the only park available. Stay here when visiting family. Friendly managers, noise from Blackstone late at night is disconcerting cars peeling out and such. Quite a bit of helicopter traffic over head. Close to restaurants and shopping. - Cactusflower

We camped here on April 1 and 2 in #116. First the positives: great bathrooms, spacious sites, beautiful lake view, and the space to back our pop-up camper was just right. Negatives: the host was rude. There were kids next to us who were late getting out and he was very rude to them. Also, no one comes around to clean up the sites after people check out. I don't understand why they make you check out at noon and new people can't check in until 2 if they're not cleaning the sites. There was all kinds of trash left behind and no one came to clean up. The other negative was the trash at the dumpsters. We got there Saturday afternoon and the dumpsters were already all pretty full then. By the time we left Sunday night the dumpsters were OVERFLOWING and there were bags of trash on the ground around the dumpsters too. The wind was blowing so the trash was blowing all over. Mostly it is a very nice campground and I recommend it. Just be sure you're out by noon or you'll get yelled at. - Lori LCSW

Booked through ReserveAmerica. There are few RV parks in the area and the only one decently rated (Blackstone) said they did not have room. I needed to be in the area for a family matter or I would not have stopped in Fresno.
Our GPS instructions dropped us off in the middle of the road with no campground in sight. This was a winding mountain road. We continued on and found the closed ranger station a few miles up ahead with a sign saying "Campground 2.5 miles". There was no more information to pick up. I wound up taking a photo of the posted signs on my iPhone, then we followed the road to find a really nice set of campgrounds. The RV area was a mile or so further on.
All sites are back-in, with a steep grade down. We tried several in our 35-foot diesel pusher MH but could not get level. We wound up just not leveling, so the whole time our back end was lower than the front end. We saw a few other MH that had gone in front end, but we would not have been able to reach the sewer with our current equipment.
This park had a lot of RVs, but the campsites around were mostly empty. This made for a nice area to walk our dog and we wound up using those bathrooms because they were clean and the RV park filthy. - Slkeyes

This review covers the Meadows camping area of Millerton Lake SRA. The Meadows area has the RV/hook up sites. Full hook ups, W/P/S are in the RV Loop, sites 120-144; sites 117, 118 and 119 have W&P, no sewer, but there is a dump station that you pass on the road to Meadows. The RV sites are arranged in a loop.
Sites 120-144 are basically just large asphalt spaces. Plenty of room for an RV and a large vehicle or two small vehicles parked either in front of the RV or along side if you don't want to put out the awning.
Behind the RV site, off asphalt is a picnic table and fire ring. Sites 132, 133, 120 and 144 are ADA sites. There is quite a bit of extra room at these sites, and the picnic areas also have a wood canopy over the picnic area.
Sites 117-119 do not as much asphalt as the other RV sites and also have the picnic canopy. These sites will still accommodate a large RV. Sites 117-119 more closely resemble a campsite than the other asphalt full hookup sites.
The camp host is at the entrance of the RV loop.
There are bathrooms/coin operated showers at each end of the RV loop. I didn't use the showers, but I noted that they were clean and attended to. All bathrooms and showers are individual rooms.
The non-RV sites all have water (spring loaded spigot, no threads) and are ample and all seem to have canopies. If you don't absolutely have to have power and sewer and can get buy with water in our tank, these sites are actually very nice, some overlooking the lake.
As of 4/3/2016 the lake is nearly full again with the water level just shy of the spillway. When the snow cap melts later in the Spring the lake will probably release water.
The comfort station at the entrance to the loop has a water machine similar to what you see in front of supermarkets, .50 cents a gallon. The machine also sells ice, 8 lbs for $5.
The roads to the campground are in good shape.
No WiFi, but cell service (Verizon) had a strong signal. - Jmaellis

Stayed here for a week visiting family. RV sites are in rear of mobile home park, visually might not be the best. Lived here for most of my life and maybe understand the area more. Very quiet, no safety concerns. The couple that runs office are very nice. Price reflects weekly rate of $185. This is a cash only place, and office does smell like smoke. Be aware that restroom facility is older, maybe clean not appealing. Used shower in rv. All said nice stay, would use again because of its proximity to Madera. - Randoni

Good place to stay a day or two. 50 amps must use higher priced pull through. Older park with some junky perminant guests. - Journey39k

Overnight at the Fresno Elks Lodge #439 (a members only campground) in Fresno, CA, which has 10 campsites with 30A electric service and water. An onsite dump is available and is included in the $20/night rate. I tow a trailer for which most Elks Lodges have available parking because all campsites are back in. This site was packed dirt with some grass between sites with ample room to deploy slides. Shade trees at the rear of site leaving direct line of sight to TV satellites. OTTA TV programs available too. Dogs are permitted but must be leashed. The Elks Lodge grill/restaurant is available for meals when serving. Easy access to shopping and other amenities in the area. A nice, quiet stay for one or two nights on the road. Seven day limit but exceptions can be made. Front desk person was very friendly, offering recommendations for restaurants close by. - kihei7

We arrived with a reservation for a six night stay. Reservations can be made a month or so in advance. Checkin is very easy with cash or check, no credit cards. There are ten sites with 30 amp electric and water service. Two of the sites are used by the camp host in site 4 and a small Class-C in space 1 that has been there for a very long time. Very, very low water pressure. Hookups for site 5 were on the curb side of our rig so make sure you have enough hoses to reach the water connection. There is another parking site next to the lodge building that has electric service and I did see another rig dry camping near the entrance. Most of the sites will take a big rigs but not all. The camp host will ask the size of your RV when you call for a reservation. A lot of traffic noise in the area. The Lodge's WiFi is virtually worthless. Could connect sometimes but getting emails and simple surfing the web was painful. Used our jet pack 98% of the time. Verizon cell service was strong and we were able to get a DTV satellite signal. If you want to use the exercise room and showers make sure you get a key card from the camp host. $10 deposit. - StarlifterFE

After driving all over town trying to find this place we found that the manager wasn't around. She finally arrived and we checked in. She then informed us that the restrooms and showers were out of order. We had made reservations for 2 nights, but changed it to 1 after we heard that. After assigning our space we walked back to the end of the park and it was in terrible condition with old rundown trailers. We have a very large RV and there was no way we could pull it into the spot she had assigned us. There was not another spot available thank goodness so we asked for a refund and ran. This was one of the worst parks I had ever seen. - H1 -

We were going to be a late arrival so we made our arrangements over the phone. We arrived at 7 pm and with the freeway construction, it was almost impossible to find the place. When we did, we found an old mobile home park that was very dark, no lighting, no signage directing us to our spot. As we drove through looking for our spot, the residents gave us the once over as we passed. At that point, our only concern was finding the exit. We didn't feel safe, we didn't stay, and don't really care if we get our money back. - Dds

This is not an RV park but a seedy, old mobile home park in desperate condition with ancient mobile homes in desperate condition. It has recently been purchased, and the new manager is making improvements as fast as possible, but he has a very long way to go. Very nice, helpful manager. They have one site at the very front of the park, but getting into it was just too iffy for our big rig. We appreciated the offer to clean up another site where large equipment was parked, but the park is just not ready for RVers so we did not stay. - Nillawilla

First the good: Very clean, well maintained, nice pool, laundry works, manager great. The bad: seedy neighborhood, manager put a super thick chain round our bikes to prevent theft. There are 3 overnight sites, right on the main road, very noisy, they crammed 5 RVs on, and would have put more if they could. This was a serious safety concern to us, and had we not had our slides out before the others arrived, we would not have got them out. No picnic table as there is absolutely no room to put one! This is the tightest site we have ever been on. Will never return. - Herbet

Saw comments about run down area but it didn't look bad to me, but it was daylight and we were desperate at 112 degrees to find some where to plug in. Lots are level and trees are awesome. Staff are exceptional! Neighbors were friendly and park is very clean. We don't have kids and don't use the public areas but I called four places and this was the only one to call back and they called right back.
Roads are narrow, probably not good for long rigs and tow vehicles. - Maltese Mom

I REALLY wish I could give this park a 10, but in all honesty I cant. So, I will get the negatives out first, then end on a positive note. This park is in a very seedy part of Fresno. Coming off 99, all we saw were rundown buildings and shady characters. We would have kept going, but we had just left a park in Madera that was even worse, and we were tired and desperate. We called from the road and we're able to get a site for the night. When we got to the park, the entrances were not clearly marked and looked way too small for our big rig and tow. We took a chance on one and although it was very tight, we managed. The roads are paved but very narrow, cars parked diagonally on either side of the roads. That's where the bad stuff ends. Office was closed but a nice resident called manager for us. He promptly came, checked us in, and escorted us to our site. We had a back in that was tight to get in, but the site itself was very level, well groomed and spacious (it was a corner lot). The park itself is well shaded ( helpful with the 111 degrees that day!) Many permanent residents, tightly packed in. Although some of the RV'S and mobile homes looked run down, the sites are well kept, and no one had clutter or garbage on their sites like we see all too often. Staff seemed very friendly and accomodating. If this park were in a better neighborhood, we would give it a 10 across the board. Despite all the trees, our satellite and hotspot worked fine. - KSAM14
