We enjoyed a lot about this park. Pros: We enjoyed many features of this park including that it is directly on the reservoir looking across at totally undeveloped land. There are good views from nearly every site. The park is kept sparkling clean by the staff - who are very welcoming and knowledgable. There are a number of surprising amenities provided including two kayaks, a 16 foot skiff (you supply the motor), comfortable chairs (including one recliner),tables, fire-rings and barbeques provided throughout the park. They also wide array of toiletries provided at no charge in the sparkling clean showers and restrooms. We were so pleased that this park offered recycling. The interior roads and sites were well graveled. A small table in good condition was provided at each site. Cons: The sites themselves were too close together. We just had room to put out or two camp chairs and small table facing the lake. There was another row of RVs parked just above and directly behind us with very little space to walk behind our RV. However there were many places in the park to sit in seating and tables provided by the park including the recliner that I enjoyed for a couple of hours! We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Motorhome.

The little town of Bridgeport had a lovely old hotel, beautiful old courthouse, and a great Native American arts store. Well worth take the short walk through the town. There is ample RV parking on the block behind main street and on the side streets.

The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The view from all the sites is about as good as it gets: lake, meadows and mountains. The restrooms were very clean and the showers were warm and had adequate pressure. Kayaks were available for use, free of charge. Everything at the site worked well but there was no cable or air TV. The proprietor explained that cable service had been cut off when the region moved to fiber optics and that he would have a fiber optic connection soon. Although the sites were a bit closer together than we would have liked, the beautiful view and the excellent service made up for it. We would definitely return to this camp.

We have stayed at this park many different times; usually in May and October. I have been there once in July....many bugs...not so in May and October. The owners are very nice folks and will do whatever they can to offer assistance if you require it. They usually make improvements to their park every year. Although fire pits at the sites are not provided, you can use your portable pit to enjoy a fire. The owners are willing to work with you if you must make a late cancellation. Their WiFi is OUTSTANDING! They have a fish cleaning station within the park. We will always stay here when coming to the Bridgeport area. The only negative is that they do not offer cable TV. That is not a show stopper in our opinion. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place if you like to fish. Many different places to fish within a reasonable driving distance including, of course, Bridgeport reservoir. Check out Bodie and the many backroad adventures.

I can't speak any more highly of this park because a place such as this is rare. The staff and owners are some of the best people I have ever met. They are the kindest people and they really do care that you enjoy your stay. Great Saturday night bonfires and a very clean and pleasant atmosphere. This place will never disappoint you.

Stayed for 4 days in this quiet, friendly park. The reservoir was low but the dog enjoyed it. They have a dog wash that was great. We had a motorhome with a dolly so they gave us 2 sites for the price of one even though they were full over the week-end. Owners on site and very friendly.

Like all the other reviews said the service is perfect. The roads and sites are gravel. There is no TV or I would have rated a ten! The wifi is free and very good. There is a library of DVDs they will lend you for free. The fishing and kayaking was wonderful tho the algae is in full bloom. They give you free use of their paddle boards and kayaks. There is even a boat free to use you just need to supply the motor. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our initial impression of this park was "kind of funky" and that remained consistent throughout our 4 day stay. If you prefer to be lined up like little soldiers in a sanitized park, this is not for you. If you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in a squeaky clean park where the owners make every effort to make your stay enjoyable, this is for you. There is an outdoor patio with wonderful views of the mountains, the restrooms are actually decorated and the laundry is clean.
Space for larger rigs is limited so be honest when you call, power is 30 Amp only and not really, water pressure is low. These all sound like negatives but they did not detract from our stay. Verizon worked fine. We would stay here again. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spectacular view over the lake to surrounding mountains, and lovely spring flowers & trees in the park, they are planting the summer crop now. No cable at this time, but excellent wifi. Verizon worked in the park, AT&T only worked in town. They not only have clean, impressively well stocked bathrooms (Cue tips, razors & Etc.) but a small but very well stocked wall of RV essential supplies in the office, and they sell propane refills. Used the excellent Laundromat (front loading washers), also noticed a free dog wash area. No problems maneuvering our 30' 5th wheel, the advice to look for the best site for your windows is spot on, the snow covered mountains were beautiful.

Just under 2 miles into Bridgeport, cute town, several restaurants & a grocery. 6 miles to Bodie cut-off, then a further 13 (3 is dirt road) to Bodie ghost town, $5 per person state park fee, $6 stamp mill tour which was excellent. Bring lunch, picnic area at park.

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. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Motorhome.

The people that run this campground are very nice. The RV spaces, though, are very small and RVs are extremely close together. The reservoir is very low right now and the water in front of us is hardly there. There is 30 amp service is available, but is not sufficient to cool my motorhome down in the heat. I would not come here again due to the small RV spaces. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a nice view of the lake and the Sierra Nevada mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is no 50 amp service available, but the 30 amp service was adequate for our needs. The grounds were very clean, and kudos to the park owners for setting up recycling bins. A couple of drawbacks. There were no pull-through sites, so we had to back our rig in. The sites are VERY close to each other. We were able to get our slides out, but it was tighter than most parks. There was no cable hookup in our site. If we'd had a long enough cable, we'd have been able to run it to an adjacent site, but we lacked the needed length. We tried to set up our portable satellite antenna, but due to the tightness of the campsites, we could not get a good view of the southern sky to accomplish this. Overall, this a a good site for an overnight stay. Make sure you have a long cable for the TV if needed. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Gravel but a little dusty in the wind. Level sites. The staff are very friendly and the owners are working hard to spruce up the place. Our cell phones didn't work in the park but did in town, a mile down the road. Other cell phones did work. I would stay there again. We camped at Paradise Shores RV Park in a Motorhome.
