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!

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.
