Last minute availability at our Full Hookup RV sites (please see full availability at "Mountain Views RV Camping" - same sites) with mountain and/or lake views for up to 24ft RVs/20ft trailers or car/van camping; not suitable for tents. Mellow community vibes, kayaks, stargazing, outdoor kitchen, Saturday bonfire nights, and more for wilderness and bug-loving adventure seekers keen to discover the Eastern Sierra. 

"Site 2/3" - camper van/teardrop trailer/motorhome up to 20ft please

"Site 1" - camper vans/trailer or motorhome up to 24ft

I M P O R T A N T : Please let us know the TYPE & LENGTH of your RV/trailer/van when requesting the booking (your request will be declined without that info). Our Mountain Views RV Camping sites have full hookups as well as free WIFI, and can accommodate camper vans, Class C or B motorhomes, Cruise America RVs up to 24 feet or travel trailers up to 20 feet. 

This year, due to Covid-19, guests traveling in RVs/trailers are expected to use their own bathrooms, while of course having access to the full hookups: 30amp electric, water & septic - at their site. The use of our communal restrooms is limited to the tent campers and guests in small vans/teardrop trailers without a bathroom. Please see detailed info below and let us know if you'll need a bathroom access prior to requesting the booking. Thank you for your understanding! 

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 welcome to car camp. If you hope to tent camp with us, please check out and request one of our tent sites.

Our camp is OPEN with limitations. Please read below Covid-19 info and the entire listing description before requesting the booking. Stay safe and we can't wait to see you all soon! 

***COVID-19 INFO***

Warm greetings to you from our piece of paradise! 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:

  • Our 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/rented RVs or our rental campers. Our public restrooms are only available to guests staying at tent sites, in vans/small teardrop trailers without a bathroom, and in the Sierra Stream rental camper. 
  • 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. 
  • 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 and we are ready to share campfires, starry nights, and our serene area with you. 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 are gravel spots with 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, and your site number will of course differ from the default Sites #1-#3, that refer to the number of spots we list. 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.

Please note that the reservoir is lower this summer (water level changes based on the winter snowpack) and swimming isn't currently available. We recommend the nearby Twin Lakes just off Bridgeport if you would like to go for a swim. We still get awesome sunsets and sunrises over the Sawtooth Ridge though!

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!) There's no fire pit option at RV sites but you're welcome to use a communal fire ring or bring your portable fire pit to enjoy a fire directly at your site any day. 

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.

I love Paradise Shores!!! The perfect homebase from which to explore the Eastern Sierra, you're only 40min from Tuolomne Meadows area and even closer to Mono Lake. I wish I could have stayed longer. Veronika and Dale are incredible hosts who know all the best local spots in the Eastern Sierra (be sure to ask about the waterslides and hot springs!). The camp is great—you wake up right on the lakefront with the great communal kitchen and hot showers. I didn't want to leave. The nearby town of Bridgeport is great for antique jewelry especially Navajo silver.
