14 RV Parks near Lakeshore, California
May 2014 - $14.00
We arrived to a full campground on Sunday of Memorial weekend, and on Monday everyone but ourselves, the camp host and two other trailers left. It is a beautiful campground right on the lake but close to the store, restaurant and ice cream. Our site (#23) was rated at 30 ft., but a 35 foot trailer could fit. Many of the sites are fine for larger rigs. As one reviewer wrote, be careful because a lot of the sites are double driveways and not good for a solo RV. We looked at all the campgrounds on the lake and like this one the best. College also looked nice. This is a very nice area for fishing, hiking and generally hanging around. - MrSunshine

Love camping here. We have been camping at Deer Creek for eighteen years. It is a great campground if your are into sailing. No showers, but that's okay with us. - dswanson

This small campground is right on the lake and is just a walk away from the boat ramp. Great place to stay if you are bringing a boat. Sites aren't particularly private, but lots of tall Lodgepole pines give it shade. Short walk to Lakeshore restaurant, bar and market. Campground near lakeside road for great bike riding. Good departure point for day trips to Florence, Edison and Mono Hot Springs. Mostly tent campers, but we brought our 5th wheel and got a double site, and selected a premium site which took our rate up to $48 per night. (A little high for a site without utilities: but still nice.) Roads a little tight for the bigger units. - ktboz

Right off highway 168 at beautiful Huntington Lake. The campsites are clean and ready for you upon arrival. Not all sites are big enough for a travel trailer so please use the filters when making your reservation. You can preregister before your arrival so your name is on the site and easy to find. The camp host make you feel very welcome and answer any questions you may have. We love clean and this is very clean. - Tom_OC

Out of the dozens and dozens of places we've camped, this one stands out as the best and the worst. Let's start with the best: 1. Totally off the beaten path. 2. Easy to find a spot. 3. Glorious natural beauty. Swimming in the icy cold, clear water of the pools is a delicious treat on a hot day. Great views. Lovely lake to paddle and fish in. 4. Many huge sites; great for groups (of which I was a part). 5. Affordable--$18 beats th3 $35-50 of CA state parks. Now, the worst/weird parts. 1. Never met the camp host. Never got checked in. We did see the young man making rounds once, but he never met with any of our group (we had 4 sites). 2. Pit toilets were a disgrace, according to the tent campers we were with. No supplies, nothing cleaned. 3. Bears were about every night, but there was not one warning sign nor any bear lockers for food. Be forewarned. Dumpsters were raided, coolers tipped over, bear scat everywhere. 4. Dogs ran loose and lots and lots of noise on this holiday weekend because of the huge group sites and lack of active "hosting." We did see one sheriff car drive through once in 3 days. 5. Only a few of the sites are RV appropriate. Most are terribly narrow and very short. We have a 24-foot Class C, so we fit in lengthwise. We could get the slide out, but not the awning. And with 3 blocks under the front tires, we were still 3.5 degrees off level in one of the best sites. But, all in all, if you're self-contained and can get one of the good sites and if you don't mind hiking steep trails down to the water, this place was a real backwoods adventure. - JCLC

The campground is beautiful, very well maintained. Sites are large and bathrooms are clean, even though they are pit toilets. However, if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful weekend, don't come here! The loud music and screaming from 2 different camp sites went on until 2 AM and loud rap music started again early in the morning. This was going on right across from the host so I'm not sure how they didn't hear it but nothing was done until the next day when we complained. I wish they were as diligent about enforcing the rules as they are about explaining them to you when you check in! Some people seem to care absolutely nothing about other people. This is a party place. Do not come here to relax. - Lori LCSW

This was a beautiful park close to Shaver Lake. Most sites do not have a view of the lake but the lake was very close to all spots and the boat ramp was very close as well. It was off-season so the park was almost empty but the sites were well spread-out. Beautiful hikes all around. - SantaCruzer

Decent campground located on Shaver Lake. This lake is a haven for water sport enthusiasts so the campground is filled with a very energetic crowd. In fact they had so much energy that it was impossible to sleep some nights because of the late night parties. But this park is a very short walk to very nice beaches located in a cove of the lake. That proved to make up for the constant chaos that the campground was filled with. The lake itself is wonderful and I am sure that when it's not the peak of summer, the campground is much quieter too. - MS.K

Friendly couple of people managing the place - very helpful getting set up. They assign the sites when you get there. Sites are very close together, but there are lots of trees scattered out, and our site was very level. No picnic tables or fire rings, and the campsite surface was dirt. But the hookups worked fine.
Fairly quiet at night, but there were a couple of groups of loud talkers after 10pm with no enforcement by management. They were quiet by 11:30.
Bathrooms were kind of old and dirty at times. They were out of toilet paper once in the ladies room. No place for kids to play - gravel driveways. But there are some woods just across the street which our kids enjoyed.
Overall it just seemed like you didn't get much for the top dollar ($45/night) price. But Shaver Lake is in high demand in the summer and especially holiday weekends, so I'm sure that's the reason. It's about half monthly renters and lots of big rigs. Not bad if you don't plan to hang around the campsite all day. - richang

The Park is nice and shaded. I felt like we were staying in the forest. I love the town and the staff was great. This is a great place to escape the city and enjoy the mountains. - angel75

This was a convenient park to stay in while exploring the Shaver Lake area. The sites are all dirt so you need to watch the dust and bring mats. You can walk into town or to the shore of Shaver Lake. No amenities (cable or Wi-Fi) since it is mostly long term residents or folks who leave their RVs and come up on weekends. We got cell but no Wi-Fi. Nice friendly managers. It's impossible to get into Camp Edison as they book a year out. This worked well for short notice. - Hitch2go

Shaver is a top notch stay as always. This time they were performing maintenance on the electrical grid so our loop's bathrooms were all closed. But overall it was quiet which we like and there was lots of hiking to be had! - JustImagine

Edison is a very well run campground with well maintained facilities, friendly and qualified camp hosts in each loop. The number of sites is amazing and any of them provide a short walk to the lake. It is great for families and campers who want it quiet after 10:00 pm. Plus, even altitude, it is open year round. - JustImagine

The office lady is very friendly and helpful. The site was spacous, clean, and quiet. The roads are paved, but sites are dirt. The powdered dirt that gets in and on everything. Bring lots of mats! This site had lots of room for pop-up canopies and tents also.
The cable TV is excellent and I didn't buy their wifi as my Verizon worked just fine.
The last 20 miles of Hwy 168 is STEEP but the reward of this campground and beautiful lake is well worth the trip. - MJHP*28

This is a beautiful campground in the Sierra Mountains with abundant pine trees and beautiful large camp sites. It is about a 20 minute drive to Shaver Lake, where we usually spend a day or two each year. There is a great creek for swimming (it is cold) and fishing. The fish and game service stocks the creek with trout regularly during the summer months. We have camped here for many years, typically for a week near the beginning of August, and will continue to visit on a regular basis. In the past couple of years, the restrooms have been redone, and now nearly all in the area have flush toilets and faucets. Showers are available at the Dinkey Creek Store for a nominal fee. The store also has some supplies and ice. The downside, no hookups and water has to be hauled to your site. There are not enough water faucets in each loop and you may have to hall your water 100 or so feet as the only faucets are near the restrooms. I carry a 5 gallon water jug and a small collapsible dolly for this purpose. There is also no cell service in Dinkey, but pay phones are available at the store. There is cell service in Shaver Lake as well as restaurants and grocery stores. Overall, if you don't mind dry camping and you love the serenity of the mountains you can’t beat Dinkey Creek. - ctaylor5

Beautiful park with large campsites with lots of mature trees in a mountainous area that may put a strain on some motorhomes. Nice creek for wading or fishing or near by Shaver Lake for all water sports.gets crowded on weekends. - PaPa Bear

This is a great place if your okay with dry camping. Sites are very spacious and setting is gorgeous. The only reason it didn't get 10 stars was that the closest dump station is 15 miles away at Edison Campground. The river is wonderful for fishing and play. Very clean campground. - User299

Great family owned and operated park for over 50 years! The owners have done a great job maintaining the park which is not an easy task given it's location and weather conditions most of the year. Our site was clean and raked. All sites have a nice picnic table and fire ring. The sites are among the largest I've ever visited (barring Texas sized sites!) . The staff was incredibly friendly as well. The store is very well stocked! Ice, beer & wine, souvenirs, ice cream, a ton of groceries (even cake mix!). I was kind of shocked to see such a well stocked and run store at 7000' in the middle of nowhere! This is also one of the (if not) quietest most relaxing RV parks I've ever been to. If you want to be loud, obnoxious, and party, this IS NOT the park for you. Matter of fact, please stay at Shaver. The scenery is absolutely amazing and the quiet is a huge part of that, so please, please help to keep this park peaceful. - bnunn

Everything the previous reviewer (allens) said, and then more. Super-sized sites, sufficient to accommodate TWO rigs. 30A and WiFi ($) were more than adequate. The campground was meticulously maintained; hosts provided a $3 ice cream social, which was over the top. EVERYONE we met was very friendly.
If you seek off-the-grid and remoteness, this is your campground - about an hour east of Shaver Lake deep within the national forest. We would camp here again. - CO2RV

Really enjoyed this resort. Because of holiday paid $44 for 3 nights and $39 for last night there. The sites had full hookups with 30 amp service, think some do have 50 but since you don't need air conditioner 50 not necessary. Spaces are some of the largest I've seen and very easy to back into. Several people had truck, trailer, car and a boat in the space. It's does take awhile to get to the resort. The distance from Shaver Lake isn't far and the road is good but you still need to go slow so about another 50 minutes from Shaver. WiFi is a pay service with some restrictions, no Netflix or hi data usage sites. If your looking for a very nice relaxing location in mountains I highly recommend this resort. - allens

We stayed on site #39 which was fairly flat but there's only room for 2 tents, the others are located in uneven ground. The bathrooms were about 70' from our tents and one was flooded and filthy, the other was OK. Since lots of people were using those toilets (flush) sometimes there was a wait. It was an easy walk to the lake which is very beautiful but rather small. We went on Labor Day weekend and there were lots of boats all over with noisy sea-dos. Also lots of people on the trails. There's a quiet time from 10PM but it was not enforced and people partied until the wee hours of the morning. No one told them to be quiet after 10PM. The parking attendant was checking the sites every day without failing. There were limited parking spaces per site and each car must be registered. Overall it was good, but I personally like quiet campgrounds. - renaelindsay

Beautiful heavily wooded location. Some sites have a view of Bass Lake. Adjacent to Millers Landing which offers showers, store, marina, and grill. They have sites which can accommodate a 40 footer, but it will be a tight squeeze both on the road and in the site. The friendly camp host sells firewood and each site has a fire ring. No hookups, and bring a water-thief to fill your tanks. - morganhillers
