Enjoy mellow community vibe, kayaks, stargazing, outdoor kitchen, bonfire nights, and more.. Camp right on the shores of Bridgeport Reservoir with a backdrop of snowcapped Sawtooth Mountain Range and an easy access to trails.

Dear All, we look forward to having you camp with us in 2019, starting from April 25th! Please read through the entire listing to find out more about Lakeshore Tent Camping and our place. Can't wait to hear from you and to be part of your adventures in the Sierra!

We're a husband and wife team and this is our adopted home - a small RV Park & Campground located directly on the shores of Bridgeport Reservoir. We believe in campfires, starry nights, good laughs, exploration, a deep sleep and an early rise. The mountains are a place to get back to basics, a place to explore, to breathe. So turn off your phone and turn on your senses. When you arrive, we won’t hand you a list of rules but we may ask you to join us for a campfire, remind you to conserve water, and to separate your trash so we can recycle it. That’s about it, oh yeah: relax, it’s your vacation.

Our two Lakeshore Tent Camping spots are located on the shores of Bridgeport Reservoir and offer great views of the lake and the Sawtooth Mountain Range. These spots will accommodate a tent (or two) + car. We can accommodate the second vehicle for an additional fee ($6); please let us know if you need the extra parking space prior to requesting the site, so we can adjust the listing's rate for you. Each site comes with picnic table, free WIFI and the access to clean bathrooms stocked with supplies available to our campers. 

It’s important to us that our guests don’t feel they are renting a camping site as much as they’re immersing themselves into the outdoor experience. You may just want to lay in one of our hammocks and read for three days. For the more adventurous, we offer a full slate of self-guided recreational activities such as hiking, kayaking, fishing, ATVing, rock climbing, biking, natural water slides, stand up paddle boards and so much more. Do you enjoy bird watching? There are hundreds of different species right here at Paradise Shores, which is located on a major bird migration route.

We do have modern conveniences such as wifi internet; however, we encourage our guest to “unplug” and immerse in the slow pace life instead. If you come to stay with us at the weekend, you'll be welcome to join us around the campfire and connect with fellow campers (we have fires on most Saturdays, s'mores are on us!)

Did we mention that we love dogs? Be sure to bring you four legged friend when staying with us. With dog wash and off-leash dog beach, your adventure pup will be a happy camper here!

We hope Paradise Shores becomes your home as it is ours. It’s located in one of the most spectacular areas in the world. We’re surrounded on three sides by the high Sierra Nevada Mountains. Yosemite National Park, Tuolumne Meadows, Mono Lake, June Lake, Virginia Lakes, Twin Lakes, and the historic gold-mining town of Bodie are all within a short drive from here.

We ask for 2 nights minimum stay throughout the season and 3 nights minimum over Memorial and Labor Day weekends ($34/night rate applies on Fri-Sun)We relax minimum stay requirements at short notice, please ask.

Paradise Shores was a nice place to spend a couple days exploring the Eastern Sierras and the camp-side reservoir.

This isn't what I would call a secluded camping experience, but it is a great place to have as a home base while exploring the surrounding region. There are a few tent sites and a number of RV sites at Paradise Shores, but the tent sites are closest to the water, which is a nice arrangement. The property has clean restrooms that are equipped with showers. I found that since many of the residents are in RVs, not many people used the showers or bathrooms. The owners also offer a small number of necessities in the main office, which is a nice convenience when in a pinch.

The overall vibe and atmosphere of the place is great. A very welcoming community fire on the weekends, and a generally happy and nice crowd. Despite it being a busy weekend with lots of people and pups alike, the noise level was quiet by 10:00PM. A nice addition is the two kayaks and paddleboard that are available for guests to use, which we definitely had to capitalize on.

Nearby is the town of Bridgeport, which has some decent spots to eat, a more comprehensive supply stop and a few other novelties worth checking out. There are also two hot springs (Travertine and Buckeye) that are really close to Paradise Shores. Aside from the reservoir which Paradise Shores inhabits, there are other lakes and rivers that are a stone's throw away.

Even though these were not the most majestic camp sites we have stayed at, the location and some of the amenities (clean water, clean bathrooms, clean shower) made this place a great hub for exploring the region. The property owners and fellow guests made it all that much more welcoming and enjoyable and we hope to come back again!

There were 6 of us who stayed on two campsites, and the views were spectacular. The bathrooms were clean, and you have full access to all the RV amenities which came in handy. There isn't much in the way of shade, so if it's expected to be hot out, I would recommend bringing a pop-up shelter.

The view was just amazing and the chill spot is worth it! Ask the staff to find the hot springs just nearby ;)

Paradise Shores RV park was an all-around great place to stay! We decided to take the scenic route through Yosemite which added an hour or two to the drive as opposed to taking the HWY 108, but it was well worth it.

At the RV Park, the owners were very down-to-earth and friendly. They essentially let us pick our camp site and then gave us a quick overview of the property, along with some insight about the must-do's in Bridgeport. After settling in, we decided to check out the amazing Travertine Hot Springs which are located a short 3 miles away from the park. This was by far the highlight of the trip! Later in the evening we particularly enjoyed sitting around the communal camp fire listening live music while getting to know some of the other campers. Although we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the free paddle boards and kayaks, it turned out to be a short and memorable stay. The following day we explored Twin Lakes (15 minutes away), and then made our way to Yosemite for a day-hike. We highly recommend staying at Paradise Shores RV Park when you're in the are!

I enjoyed our one night here! The bathrooms and showers are clean and way above public campgrounds. The little hotel like amenities are nice too. We didn't get to use the firepit because I was wiped from our drive. There are three tent sites very close to each other and two that have more privacy. One is out on a jetty. Ask to get that one. Great place to stay to explore Bridgeport, Bodie and Travertine Hot Springs.

It was extremely windy here the one night we stayed, so we opted not to pitch our tent out on the jetty. The view is great and I must echo what others have said about the bathrooms. They're very clean and I particularly liked the little homey, personal touches. Though we weren't there on a night that the fires got lit, there was still the opportunity to lounge in the hammocks and enjoy the night sky.

Lakeshore Tent Camping was such a great experience! Their hosts are so kind, and make sure that you're having fun during your stay. There is lots to do around if you like the outdoors, and was definitely worth visiting!

We had a wonderful time here! Lots to do in the area. Every morning my kids woke up and took the two kayaks (provided for free for campers' use) out on the lake. We met a wonderful couple who took them out on their boat fishing for the first time. After using the fish cleaning station, we had fresh rainbow trout that night! There is not much shade, so bring a pop-up shade tent. The communal kitchen is shaded and I did a lot of cooking on the gas stove there. The women's bathroom was clean and well stocked, but my husband said the men's bathroom smelled strongly of urine. Don't miss Bodie State Park if you like well-well-presevered ghost towns. Numerous hot springs are nearby as well as beautiful lakes. Nearby Bridgeport has whatever you need, but don't try to run in and by half-n-half at 7 am Sunday morning! We hope to return next year!
