9 Parks near Bridgeport, California
Jul 2013 - $35.00
Place was packed! Screaming kids & babies everywhere. Bad timing, I guess. Staff seemed callous to guests. Campsite layout was difficult to follow. Access to lake & fishing can be costly! We visited during peak season. Beautiful setting overall. Will come back at another time. - zzzya

Remember this is not a resort at the beginning. It is about 14 miles outside of town on a beautiful lake. The sites are very dusty and difficult to find. They are tight with little space between sites and required a back out of a pull through site. It appears they just attempt to cram in as many rigs as possible on every little piece of dirt. The Wi-Fi is Tangonet: and $3.99 for 1 hour and up. If you park near the antennae the service is good, not great. We would look around for another park before returning to this one. Cafe and store in the park but we didn't visit them. - westie0506

We found this RV park somewhat charming. The drawbacks are that the sights are hard to find and the roads are lumpy. But the scenery more than makes up for the lumpy roads. Some of the buildings have undergone upgrades. The Wi-Fi worked great. - luvdoggiez

This is the only RV park I have stayed in that gets my top rating. The sites all have a terrific view, the restrooms are absolutely clean and well appointed, and the owner is a really great asset. Don't fool around with the other places, this is the best one in the area. - Roadrunner Deb

Stayed one night, Great setting with nice views of the lake. In normal years the lake reaches the edge of the park and there are boats available. Hookups are fine and the Internet works very well. Would stay longer if we had time. - Gtwood65

We've stayed here several times but have never written a review. The park is extremely clean (at all times- bathrooms too)- the RV spaces are large and wide (80' long) with plenty of room. There is room for your RV, truck or car, boat, and ATV. There is 50 amp service, as well as Wi-Fi and cable. The water comes from an artesian well and is delicious. The park is small and quiet. The owner is so honest and helpful, as well as the staff. This year, without much water in the reservoir, the owner took his backhoe and made a bigger space at the end of the lake so boats could be launched easily. He added a dock and moved the dock out, sometimes weekly, as the water in the lake went down. He did this on his own time and at his own expense so everyone could still launch boats and enjoy the lake. We love it here and can't think of a better place to come and camp. - whizy

This is a pretty USFS campground located at 7,000 ft on the eastern side of the Sierras just a short drive from Bridgeport, CA on Twin Lakes Road. Some sites can be reserved through the Recreation.gov website. There are 52 sites for RVs of just about any size. (check with the Visitor's Center in Bridgport if you have any questions on that) and one group site. The roads and parking pads are paved. There are flush toilets but no showers and no hook-ups or dump station. The campground is set in an open pine forest and many of the sites have great views of the Sawtooth Ridge. There is fishing nearby at Upper and Lower Twin Lakes and also in Robinson Creek. Plenty of opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, horseback riding, etc. in the area too. - BruceandKathyWA

Doc and Al's is located in a wonderful setting. it's just to bad that the staff isn't just as wonderful. They don't take reservations and we decided to chance it and go there anyway. When we arrived we were told to just go look for a spot with full hook ups. When we "looked" there were no full hoop ups available. Back to the office and once again were to to just go find a spot. We decided to dry camp on the grassy area for the night. We located a park with full hook ups and left the next day. I will not stay there again. It's to bad because being on Robinson Creek is really great. - John n Bonnie

Dry camping at its best with a few water spickits thru-out the campground. This time of year you can pick your spot and which loop you want to be in. Deer come right up to your campsite.There is a store and laundrymat near by if need be.This time of year is nice after Labor Day so crowds are down and it makes for a great camping experience. - monaco cruiser

Very remote -- located on a long dirt road off of 395, south of 108. Shady, quiet, and cool. Nothing to do except fishing and hiking. Aspen and pine trees. A creek runs nearby. There is no water available, but the pit toilets are clean. If you want peace and quiet, this is a great place. - Prof Dan

Lake is down but not out. We stayed in lower level spot with 180 degree view of water and surrounding mountains. The owners are very nice, helpful and working hard to improve the park. This is a small park but each site was of sufficient size to accomodate a full sized motorhome. There is a community fire pit, happy hour setting, and lots of planted flowers around the park. The wifi worked flawlessly and I was able to use my satelite dish for TV. The gravel sites on the part of the park are level and provide a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding mountians. The restrooms were small but very clean with small added touches such as razors and q tips. We would definitely stay there again. - Phoenixaway

This is a small "mom and pop" sort of place run by a young couple who appear to be doing extensive updating to the facilities. Don't expect anything fancy - just clean, quiet, friendly and cute. There are about 38 sites arranged on two levels so most sites will have views out to Bridgeport Reservoir and the mountains on the far shore. Before you select a site consider the placement of your windows if you want to take advantage of the views. We had a back-in site (#11) on the upper level, but it put our rear window (the smallest one in our rig) facing the view. A site on the lower level (#21 to #31) would have resulted in our large front windows facing the view. Well, now we know for next time.
I really liked the little personal touches in this RV park - the dog wash, the common patio area, the direct access down to the lake shore, and the little amenities in the restrooms. In addition to the RV spaces, the park also offers 4 rental trailers (the Baja looks adorable!) and an area for tent campers. Since this is an older park, the spaces are quite close together and big rigs might have a hard time getting into the park because the entrance requires a rather sharp turn off the highway.
This park has a nice laid-back vibe and we would definitely stay here again when in the area. - BruceandKathyWA

This is an older park that is now owned by a young couple who are working very hard at making it a nice place. So far, I've stayed here twice, both during the recent drought.
The sites are small but there is a fair amount of space between them. We are in a 24ft MH. I wouldn't want to try to get something much over 30 ft in because of the sharp turns to get into the spaces. There are a number of pull throughs as well as back ins. The park itself is built on 2 tiers, which allows a view of the lake from all of the spots.
The bathroom is immaculate and even has some nice touches such as disposable razors and hand lotion. There are 2 showers, which were very clean as well.
They are very dog friendly. Leashed dogs are allowed and there is no breed discrimination. They also supply poop bags.
It was somewhat dusty and the lake is a bit of a hike. But California is in a historic drought, so that is not the owners' fault.
I would definitely stay here again. - skeats

This is a USFS site that is on Rte 108 just past the turnoff from Rte 395, about 15 miles north of Bridgeport. It is a very basic campground. There are pit toilets and some water spigots and garbage bins. The sites themselves are large, with good picnic tables and firepits at each site. The campground sits on the top of a bluff with a steep mountain on the back and views of the mountains to the north and south. Some of the sites are very shady, sitting among the large, beautiful pines and others have little shade but better views. As we were here after Labor Day, we were one of only a few campers. If you're a fisherman or a hiker this would be a great place to set up a home base and then use your truck or toad to go explore. There's not much to do if you just hang out. There aren't any trails from the campground itself. You can walk down to the river to fish, but it's a HIKE back up. (Since our whole purpose in going there was to escape from life for a few days and to just hang out with the dogs, it was perfect.) I would recommend this campground mostly for people who have a trailer, 5th wheel or a towed vehicle so they can come and go. It's good as a place to hang out only if hanging out is your whole purpose, otherwise I could see getting bored after 1-2 days here. - roadie gal

This place is not well maintained at all. Sites are not even close to level & are all dirt. But it is centrally located and does have hook ups. They do take reservations so you are assured of having a spot. So if you are going to fish or sight see, and don't plan on staying at camp much, it is fine. - weezy5

Staff was friendly. The sites are a bit cramped, some better than others (we stayed in #13 which was pretty tight). Our picnic table was in terrible shape, wobbly and up on blocks. Power was excellent, held 120volts and 60hz very consistently. It appears that each 'wheel' has it's own transformer fed from underground high voltage. The begging deer were rather annoying, 2-3 times a day they're in camp begging: and of course receiving treats from the campers. - braindead0

On the positive side, the staff are friendly and there is nice hiking in the area. But the campground is very stark, with no shade and it was very hot during the day. The winds kick up in the afternoon so it was not possible for us to keep our awning up for shade. It was fun to have a fire at night, which you can't do in some parts of California due to fire danger. Bathrooms were in need of cleaning. We would not return. - cj2012
