Paradise Shores RV Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2017

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at Paradise Shores in the Sierra Rental Trailer in late May to early June 2017. We used it as a base camp to explore Mono Lake, Bodie, June Lake, and Twin Lakes. We did a 4 hour hike to Parker Lake, highly recommend it! We had wanted to do more hiking, but a lot of the trails were closed due to the snow pack not having melted yet. We originally found their listing through airbnb, but it was less expensive to book through their website directly. It's a family run place - Alan and Veronika were awesome hosts! They stocked the RV with everything you could possibly need, and it's such a nice way to have access to a kitchen and bbq so you can cook, and also have some outdoor space too! (they even included things like a solar powered LED light so that you could have a lantern outside when bbq'ing) They were also super helpful with suggestions for where to pick up fresh produce on the way into town, and where to eat in Bridgeport. The setting is just beautiful and restorative - every night, we got to sit on our Adirondack chairs that they had set up with the RV, and watch the sunset against a mountain with a lake. And then the stars were just incredible. Bridgeport in late May is gorgeous - the green meadows and wild flowers were almost too beautiful to believe. We also liked that the RV park has a community feel - they host group camp fires on Saturday nights so you can meet the other people at the park. We arrived on a Tuesday and had a pretty much unobstructed view of the lake from our deck outside the RV. Be aware that they don't just rent RVs, it is an RV park and they also rent spaces to RVs coming in, so on the weekends it does get a bit more crowded. However, we still had a lovely view and there were no issues with it getting too noisy or anything like that. Overall, a wonderful stay, and great way to throw ourselves into the RV lifestyle! We'll be back!

Room Tip: If you can, take into consideration the location of your rental trailer so your view doesn't get...

We first came to Paradise Shores three years ago and were blown away by the beauty of the place and the trip on the way. This year there is water in the reservoir, remnants of snow in the mountains and Alan and Veronika have a son. Upon arriving Veronika greeted us with a hug just like family. This year we will take in attractions in the surrounding areas, take advantage of the kayaks on the lake and create more great memories. If you are looking for a great small RV, tent, or rental get away with glorious views and tranquility, with owners that not only live on the property, but treat you like family, this is the place for you.

We stayed on May 21,2017 for just one night. The owners are poring their hearts and souls into this campground and it shows. From the remodeled trailers with different themes to the tenting spots that have soft mulch to pitch your tent upon, to the meticulously leveled full hookup pull through sites, it really is a place of imagination and whimsy. The lake is very close and has beautiful views. There is a gathering deck for happy hour and a terrific communal campfire ring. We didn't join in due to fatigue, but we heard very faint music coming from the campfire direction early in the evening. All in all, it was a delightful stay and the owners can well be proud of the atmosphere they are creating here. We will be back, hopefully for more than a night.

Paradise Shores was a great basecamp for out recent backcountry ski trip. The views are vast and scenic. Alan and Veronika keep the place really clean and are always working on some fun projects. There's a cool campfire ring, an outdoor lounge area, and now they are building a veranda with solar panels. There are some tent sites, some RV sites, and these cool Airbnb trailers, so an interesting mix of people around. Veronika and Alan are such great hosts, it was hard to leave!

Alaska will have to wait, paradise has been found right here in California! We've been all over the mountain west, Europe and AK for our sport and this home base is AMAZING.

In terms of a RV resort it's lovely, peaceful and friendly. Location is so great. Come and enjoy!

Having stayed in thIs RV Park three times over five years, I can say, without reservation, it is our favorite spot on the East side of the Sierra Nevada!! Alan & Veronika greet you like long time friends and go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay. They have great suggestions about things to see and do, in case you are looking for a local's perspective. The sites are clean, well maintained and right on Bridgeport Reservoir.

Alan and Veronica have a really nice place and are good people. We have stayed there, 4 times, over the last couple of years. They do a great job of making us feel welcome and are always accomidating for our big rig. Bodie ghost town is 20 miles away along with a lot of other mining history. You can ride and ride, and don't have to look over your shoulder for the National forest nazi's!! We look forward to staying at Paradise Shores again next year. Oh, and they are dog people to. The rating that "Duramax2006", gave is total B.S. I have seen people from all walks of life stay there.

Come to stay and play in Paradise! Welcome to Paradise Shores Camp, Bridgeport Reservoir's full service RV Park & Campground! Our camp is conveniently located to all High Sierra attractions. We believe in campfires, starry nights, good laughs, exploration, a deep sleep and an early rise. We hope Paradise Shores becomes your home as it is ours. All our RV sites have full hookups and internet. We are fortunate to be located right on Bridgeport Reservoir, with its world famous fishing and water sports. The blue ribbon trout fishing of East Walker River is only a short walk. Yosemite National Park, Tuolumne Meadows, Mono, June, Convict, and Twin Lakes as well as Bodie Ghost Town are all within a short drive from our camp. This area is one of the most spectacular in the world and offers exceptional recreational activities. Water skiing, sailing, mountain biking, road biking, hiking, and of course fishing are all readily available right from the property. For the more adventurous, try rock climbing, hiking, snowmobiling and year-round skiing in the backcountry. You may just want to lay in one of our hammocks and read for three days, stargaze, enjoy the campfire and eat s’mores. The possibilities are endless. The Yosemite National Park, which occupies less then 10% of the Sierra Mountain Range, is only a small fraction of the attractions this spectacular area affords. The surrounding terrain offers endless activities and unimaginable scenery in the most remote wilderness settings. Enjoy bird watching?...there are hundreds of different species right here at Paradise Shores. Did we mention the world class fishing? We are the closest lodging and RV facility to the famous Blue Ribbon East Walker River, not to mention the trophy fishery right here at Bridgeport Reservoir. Additionally, all of the other lakes, creeks and rivers are only a short cast away. People travel all over the world to stay with us and fish this unique area. The fish are plentiful here at Paradise Shores, the people are warm and the atmosphere is casual. Bring the whole family, everyone is going to have a memorable time. Return to your senses. Put down your phone and pick up experience, the mountains are calling... Please email us if you have any questions or would like more info. ... more   less
