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

Stayed at this place before, while visiting relatives in Fresno. There is not much selection in this area for rv parks. The park is under new ownership, but really hasn't changed anything much to improve it. The park itself is safe, and in a good location of town. If you walk outside the park early you will trip over street people sleeping on the side walks, which has increased over the past years. Electrical water and sewer work well, the wifi is useless, as well as the cable TV, both have ususable signals. The bathrooms are kept clean. The long term units are kept tidy and are friendly. The donut shop across the street is really good. If your stuff in this part of the valley this is not bad, that not great either. Have never had a problem during any stay here. - Randoni

Nice RV park with paved roads and wide, long concrete pull thru and back in sites with FHU with grass and trees. OK for big rigs. Be sure you are driving north on Blackstone road to enter. If going south have to make nasty U-turn. Problem; large trees need to be trimmed up higher. Almost all of the M/Hs and fivers had tree branches brushing roof. OK in summer because soft, bad in fall and winter as hard branches will damage roof. Most sites can get satellite signals if rig positioned right. Cable tv, good antenna tv, open wi-fi, good cell signal. No pool, no rec room, no store or activities. Park clean and staff helpful. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

This is a small but nice park. If you are near the front, you will have some traffic noise. We were in the back and it was very quiet. The roads and sites were concrete. We had lots of shady. The hookups were good but the water pretty was low. There are no amenities at this site. You are allowed to wash your coach and tow. - Michael47

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

We almost didnt stay when we first arrived. It is an older park and we did read the reviews on this site. Apparently there have been some changes as there were 8x11 home made signs directing us to the office which would have been confusing had it not been for the nice young man in the trailer in the front of the park. He explained that the manager and office relocated and he had purchased the trailer from the park. I think a previous review bashed him stating he had harrassed people and was loud, I found no reason for such statements. He seemed very polite and knowledgable about the area and the park. The pool was closed for winter but it was crystal clear. The wifi was fine our entire stay, which was 5 days. The back of the park was not an area that I would want to stay as it is definitely long long term people, and they were messy. The road noise isnt as bad as stated in previous reviews; there is, however, a lady in a red car that drives in and out at all hours of the night playing her music very loudly. That was unpleasant to deal with. The area is a bit sketchy but the people that live in the front of the park were very nice and we felt safe and secure. Make sure you have a 50 to 30 amp pigtail if you only have 30 amp service . We were lucky the young man in the front mobile home had one and he graciously loaned it to us. Over all we had a nice stay and will return next time we are in Fresno. - ROADster1

I am not sure if this park should take overnighters (we stayed 2 nights). We planned on staying a week using the park as a homebase, but between the drunk men in a corner site to all the traffic that went to the back of the park and the park owner (we think). Let's just say if she is the owner, she needs to hire a manager. Now if she owns the place it's hers to ruin, but if she is the manager then lord help them. We had go to the office twice. Each time I went to the office it was the same. The office was empty, so I had to knock on the door of the trailer it is attached too. Both times a woman with no teeth, a large black man, and the owner come out of the trailer smelling like a marijuana factory, all three of them high as kites. It was just surreal and an absolutely bizarre.
There are 4 mobile homes in front that are very clean and tidy. We didn't see one worker anywhere in the park; it just looks like nobody cares. DO NOT go in the back section; there is alot of traffic going back there all night long and we saw a Sheriffs Patrol car several times heading back there. Large lawn areas that seem to be the tenants yards (it is unclear), the roadways are narrow and need some repair work done. We saw lots of dogs off leash. The residents are a diverse group of characters. They were polite and friendly for the most part. The sites are difficult to maneuver, but the people are happy to help guide you in. I try to find the good in everything; lets just say this park was a challenge for me. This park could be a nice little park, but that will only happen if gets new management. My kids were terrified, we will never go back. - TruTrentTru

I did not like my stay at this park. The WiFi stopped working after my first night. There is also a man who lives in front of the park that harasses people about where they park. His home was next to my site and he made a lot of noise at night. I was going to stay for an extended period but I was not comfortable there. The lady that runs the park seemed to be very nice. The guy who lives in front of the park is definitely going to destroy their business. This seems more like a place where people live with a few areas for travelers. There was a couple that lives near the front that I talked to that were very knowledgeable and friendly. The park grounds were in pretty good shape considering the drought we are in. The front of the park is clean and well maintained. However, when you go to the back some areas are very messy. There was a recreational room that was closed and I couldn't go swimming because the pool was green. Overall I was not happy with my stay. Good luck with your future guests because you will need it with the neighbor in the front of your park. When I come back next year I will look for another park to stay. - BigDH

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

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

This is the worst "camp ground" we have ever stayed at. We paid 50 dollars for one night and it was the worst experience ever. There was a 5 dollar deposit for a key to the unclean restrooms. The people were even worse. We even saw a man from a local wanted poster living there! STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!! - Justin-h_87

We were given misleading directions to the campground by an employee/host to start with. The spaces are grass with holes (hard to level), the ground is mushy. There were, I think, 4 high speed brakes coming in by a low-class trailer park. People from the trailers behind the park go through the campground with loud mufflers. The male host screams at campers to slow down; there's no way you can speed with those speed humps. Unbelievably it only has l restroom for men and 1 for women. You have to wait if one person is there...the sink, toilet and shower are in the room. You pay a $5 refundable fee for the key to the restroom (same key fits both rooms??). The next morning you have to wait around for your $5. Fee to be returned when the office opens. This is one of the worst campgrounds anywhere. - oldgeezer one

THIS IS THE WORST PARK WE HAVE EVER BEEN IN, EVER. We do this Full-time so we're in a lot of parks. The so called Wi-Fi is non-existent. The rest rooms are terrible. The so called stream is just some stagnant water in a drainage ditch. This park is surrounded by a terrible, run down old mobile home park full off junky places and obnoxious people, playing their loud music at all hours. This is a very run down area. DO NOT GO TO THE PARK. YOU WILL REGRET IT. - Mike and Darcy

A small park, geared for seasonals. Just off the freeway, it's really a stop over on the way to someplace else. The regular price seems a little steep for what's offered. Noisy freeway on one side, busy train tracks right on the other. You'll have a hard time getting a sound sleep. Having said that, the people were friendly enough, the place clean. Ok value for the Passport America 50% discount. - Two Travellers

Not a destination RV resort. Small, mostly monthly users, but they try to keep a few spots open for travelers. Stay a night, maybe two then move on. - John & Aleda

When we finally talked to someone on the phone, they assured us they had 65 to 70 foot pull-throughs for big rigs. When we finally squeezed into a spot, the pedestal was blocking our door. We did not stay. The electrical panel doors were falling off, allowing rain to get in. It just seemed very rundown to us. - Raquel
