I M P O R T A N T : Please let us know the TYPE & LENGTH of your RV when requesting this site or share the link to the rental site listing if you're not sure. Since it's gravel, we DON'T allow pitching tents on the RV sites (plus it's simply not comfortable for tent camping) but you're more than welcome to car camp. If you hope to tent camp with us, please check out and request one of our tent sites.

Our camp opens to van/RV camping starting this Friday, May 29th! Please read below Covid-19 info for details. Stay safe and we can't wait to see you all soon! 

***COVID-19 INFO***

Warm greetings to you from our piece of paradise! Spring is here, flowers are out, birds are chirping and we have been working hard to ensure our camp is ready for the 2020 season. This is a new reality we are all getting used to, please be kind and mindful while at the camp and adventuring in the area, respecting other’s space and maintaining the safe six-foot distance. We are unsure what official COVID-19 guidelines may be at the time of your visit but we will just mirror them. Things have, and still may change daily. Please be flexible, we truly appreciate your patience and understanding. 

We understand the concerns around the virus and would like to share with you the steps we are taking to ensure a safe, relaxing environment for all our guests and staff:

  • All restrooms are cleaned several times a day and all surfaces are disinfected. Please note, to ensure that social distancing guidelines are followed, our restrooms are closed to guests staying in their own RVs or our rental campers. Our public restrooms are only available to guests staying at tent sites, in vans/small trailers without a bathroom, and in the Sierra Stream rental trailer. 
  • Hand soaps, sanitizers, and disinfectants are available in all common areas for regular use.
  • The use of some of our amenities (such as laundry) will be limited or not available. 
  • Some normally provided items that cannot be wiped down (such as aluminium foil) will be removed. 
  • Our office has been temporarily relocated outside.
  • No need to check-in in person. Your welcome information, any latest updates, and check-in details will be emailed to you about a week prior to the arrival.
  • As per May 1st order, the use of facial coverings while in public in Mono County and interacting with people outside of your household is required, in effect through the end of the COVID-19 pandemic emergency declaration. Please come prepared. We will ask you to wear masks/face coverings when walking around the camp but not when at your site.
  • Consider getting all your supplies before coming to our community.

Now more than ever it is important to spend time connecting in the great outdoors. We look forward to reopening soon, and we’ll be ready to share campfires, starry nights, and our serene area with you when we do. The mountains are a place to get back to basics, a place to explore, to breathe. It is a place where social distancing happens naturally. This is a great opportunity to be together in Nature and not to be isolated in our homes. Together (from a safe distance) we will remain healthy, positive, and strong!

Please read through the entire listing to find out more about these sites and our camp. We can't wait to hear from you and to be part of your adventures in the Sierra! :-)

Our Mountain Views RV Camping sites have full hookups (30 amp electricity, septic, water) and free WIFI and can accommodate camper vans, Class C or B motorhomes, Cruise America and similar Rentals up to 24 feet or travel trailers up to 20 feet. These gravel spots have mountain and/or lake views, some are more exposed, some offer shade. PLEASE NOTE, the location marked on the map is approximate and they may be anywhere within the camp. We'll always make sure that the site is a great fit for your van/RV!  

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.

It’s important to us that our guests don’t feel they are renting an RV 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 (we can accommodate up to two dogs at each site). With dog wash and off leash dog beach, your adventure pup will be a happy camper here! Please note that the dog beach can be quite limited when the water level in the reservoir is high. On the upside, the lake looks absolutely gorgeous then!

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.

Please note, we ask for 3 nights minimum stay over the Memorial & Labor Day weekends and 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend (we won't have arrivals or departures on July 3rd & 4th). 

We relax the minimum at short notice, please ask.

Please email us (with your RV details and preferred dates) if you're interested in a weekly or longer stay with us - we offer weekly discounts at the RV sites.

Beautiful location on the other side of Yosemite National Park - quiet and relaxed. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. There was quite a cold breeze coming off the lake and mountains when we were there but it didn't spoil our stay at all. Was so peaceful waking up surrounded by mountains in the morning. Would definitely stay again. Plenty to do in the local area when we got there too! Thanks guys!

Mountain Views RV Camping was everything we were hoping for. Beautiful setting on the lakeshore, wonderful hosts and great amenities. We were close to Yosemite and numerous other activities. As long as you bring adequate supplies, you'll be set. There is a community campfire, so if you prefer your own, you do need to bring a fire ring. But it was nice to talk to the other travelers while we were there. And the view of the night sky was unlike any I've ever seen. Highly recommend!

We had a fabulous time camping at Paradise Shores. The hosts and the owners were extremely friendly, and very helpful at all times. They helped us plan local day trips based on our family needs. All of their suggestions were great...from visiting Bodie to hiking at Virginia Lakes...and doing water sports at June Lake. The campsite itself is well maintained and overall very clean. There are about 20 sites that can be booked and there is a handful of remodeled trailers that are offered to rent. There is a common area where campers can cook or have a joint camp fire. On top of that on Saturday nights Veronika and the team offer free smores at the camp fire for all families. The campsite has a very nice vibe to it. All campers were very friendly, sociable - and very respectful to their neighbors. We did not meet anyone who was playing loud music or was up till midnight partying...Overall it was a great family campground with fabulous owners, staff and fellow campers. We are already planning to come back next year!

I’m already missing Paradise Shores. Our experience was beyond amazing. This will be the only place we stay at when we visit Yosemite. Veronika and her staff was beyond polite and amazing. Kelly, was quite possibly the sweetest person we’ve ever met. Made us feel right at home. The only complain I have is that Paradise Shores is far away from our home. We wish it was closer, we would definitely be going more often, lol. The accommodations where beyond what we had hoped for. We are all still elated from our trip and hope to stay here again soon. It was just what I needed after spending 7 months overseas. Thank you Veronika and your staff for an amazing stay.

Very respectfully
Ozzy

This was our favorite campsite by far as we traveled across the USA!! Veronika and her fellow hosts were awesome!! They always wanted to be helpful with whatever was the need. The campground is not only clean and well kept but cute!! Every little detail was thought about and decorated or provided.
I would strongly recommend the cutest little campground west of the Mississippi!

We arrived fairly late (9:00 pm), and was still greeted by Alen. He was a very gracious host and have us info on how to best explore Yosemite the next day. I would definitely recommend approaching Yosemite from the east. Tioga pass and the road to the valley floor (highway 120) were completely spectacular. It takes about 2 1/2 hours but is worth it.

Alen and the family have a very welcoming and comfortable environment that they have created for their guests. Thank you.

The owners made us feel very welcome. There is a relaxed atmosphere at the campground, with campfires in the evenings. The view over the lake and the mountains in the background is magnificent. A perfect base to go and explore the area, because there is a lott to see and do.

The campers and RVs are amazing but I really think the tent sites are where it's at. You're right next to the lake, and have the water and mountains right outside your tent or camper. Best spot in the house!

Awesome communal campfire pit for meeting other campers and SMORESNearby hot springs 🍵. Make sure to leave it BETTER than you found it, there's always random trash near the hot spring that can be carried out. Thx. 🍑Hiking around nearby Travertine.
