As it was July, we knew it would be hot and it was. The campsites were on blacktop and the temp is 105 F., all in the sun. Ugh! Went to use the rest room and shower, big mistake. There was mosquito larvae in the toilet, at least the water was potable. Now for a nice cool shower. Turned on the cold water and waited and waited; it got hotter and hotter. Checked the tap out side same thing. With great wisdom the pipes were run in the peak of the roof where it was very hot, NO COLD WATER. Enjoy your stay!
This is a very substandard stopping place; you can't call it a Park as you have minimal amenities and are subject to the influx of animals right where you park. The animal pens are in the open air building right in front of the parking area. This facility was an afterthought of the fair board.
Don't stop, you will be better off at Wal-Mart. If you do stop, check it out before you pay. - Tom G Oregon unit

Due to upcoming events (several days away) we were directed to a lot behind the building for "Satellite Wagering". From the street to the lot where we were to park there were two locked gates. We had been given the combination to the locks. The lot had space for about a dozen rigs. All back in sites. Good hook-ups but it was all downhill from there! The surface of the lot was ground up asphalt mixed with cigarettes and dog droppings! It was disgusting and we will not stay there again. - User2209

We were one of two rvs in this park in Jan. 2012. It's very well kept. It's hard to find, however; although it's on Chance, there is no signage. Look for the guard shack at the gate. We rated this a 6 because there is a nearby train, and the fairgrounds is next to the CA Air National Guard and those planes are loud at night. If you're just looking for a one-nighter, this place is a good deal for the price. There is also plenty of dog walking room. - beckydmc

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

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

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

I have stayed there several times over the last six years, in different spaces for extended amounts of time. The manager always came out and greeted us with a smile and kindly guided us in our space. She is very professional and patient allowing us to get hooked up and settled in and was extremely helpful. Every time we stayed it was peaceful and quiet. Definitely a great place, I would highly recommend this park too anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay with laundry facilities, pool, patio, picnic area, barbecue grills for use and horseshoe pit. We always look forward too staying ! - Misty Jordan

I have stayed at this park on our travels on numerous occasions. The manager is friendly and helpful. She is the biggest reason we return every year. The park is clean. The pool is well kept when we arrive in the summer. The people we have interacted with in the park are friendly. Even though it is an older park it is well maintained. We will continue to return to this park. - Living_Life

Park was nice, quiet, and people were very friendly. Close to Hwy 99, and we were able to get to all the places we needed to get to. - rkedwards

Easy access just off Hwy 99. One night stay while traveling North. No frills: nice and simple. Park was quiet and clean as most people were living here full time and working. - Darla

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

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

Campground, is in the Sierra National Forest, on Bass Lake, We only stayed here because we couldn't get a site IN Yosemite
While we made a reservation on Recreation.gov, we checked in to find that the site we had reserved on line, was already occupied and we possibly would not fit into anyways. We were told to go in & find a site, then come back to register, this actually turned out much better for us. Sites are fully wooded with paved parking pads, there are no hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill.
Our site was sort of level, and narrow, strangely laid out as there was a drop off on one side and the road on the other side, the picnic table and fire ring were near the front of the site. Site was well separated from each other.
Bathrooms with flush toilets were clean, but there are no showers.
The campground is laid out on a side hill withing walking distance from the Lake.
Due to the driving distance to Yosemite, I doubt we would stay here again. - bukhrn

Nice state campground off Bass Lake. Walking distance to lake from sites and nearby Forks store and restaurant. Clean site and flush toilets. No showers. Only downside is there are limited water faucets accessible and no hookups. Stayed in sites 20 and 21 and were great for 2 families and secluded. Would stay here again. Cell phone reception was pretty decent. - JLBL

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
