Paradise Shores Camp

46 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents2 acres · Bridgeport, Mono
We're a family owned RV Park & Campground located on the shores of Bridgeport Reservoir. Together with our crew, we're excited to welcome you into our newly adopted home. 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. It’s important to us that our guests don’t feel they are renting a tent/RV site or a camper as much as they’re immersing themselves into the outdoor experience. You may just want to sit outside and read for days, enjoy campfires and eat s'mores. For more adventurous, there's a full slate of self-guided recreational activities, such as hiking, kayaking, fishing, ATVing, rock climbing, biking, natural water slides, stand up paddle boards, bird watching, available in the area. We do have modern conveniences such as wifi internet; however, we encourage our guests to “unplug” and immerse in the slow paced life instead. At Paradise Shores, we believe in protecting people, animals and the planet. We make sure that the majority of products we use at our camp is recycled, composted, or re-used. We prefer to use products that are produced in a sustainable way and avoid those that aren't. We are continuously reducing the amount of waste we generate and actively promote recycling of aluminum, plastic, glass, and cardboard. We pack our own recycling and haul it to the nearest recycling facility which is an hour away. We co-opt the drive with other activities to reduce waste. We don’t use individually packaged toiletries or one-use products. We use plant and planet friendly detergent. We're based in a desert. We share our precious water with the entire planet. With only 326 million cubic miles of water on the earth, the decreasing amounts of access to quality fresh water is alarming to us. We monitor how we use water in our day-to-day activities and are constantly working on ways to reduce our consumption of fresh water resources. We hope you can help us maintain this greener camping! We hope Paradise Shores Camp 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, and Twin Lakes, as well as the historic gold-mining town of Bodie, CA are all within a short drive from our place. We're proud to know this area intimately and are excited to share the secret spots with you. The excellent hiking/running trails including the Pacific Crest Trail, thousands of miles of ATV, dirt bike and mountain bike trails are accessible right from our camp or within a short drive from here. The surrounding terrain offers endless activities and unbelievable scenery in remote wilderness settings.

Bridgeport Reservoir is a lake at the lower end of Bridgeport Valley in Mono County, California. Its earth-filled dam was constructed in 1923 by the Walker River Irrigation District, along the East Walker River. The campground and marina was built I-don't-know-how-long ago, but it sure is nice!

Within the Toiyabe National Forest, Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground is conveniently located near two distinct hot spring areas. A true angler's paradise, the Reservoir has excellent trout fishing from spring through fall and is close by to multiple rivers for incredible fly fishing. A short 30-minute drive to Tioga pass will bring you straight into the heart of Yosemite National Park. Off-road enthusiasts will have a heyday will the plethora of 4x4 trails in the area as well as the famous trail that brings you right to the Bodie Ghost Town. Climate & Ecosystem: At 6,400 feet (1,950 meters), this high desert climate has little to moderate tree coverage and gets hot during the days and cool at night. The conditions are much like Joshua Tree National Park or Alabama Hills camping area. During your visit, you will notice many flying insects that resemble mosquitos. These Chironomidae are harmless and do not bite. On the contrary, the mosquito presence is very minimal. Lake Levels: Due to this devastating drought across California and the Western United States, reservoir levels are low. As of August 1st, 2022, Bridgeport Reservoir is approximately 25 feet below normal. Swimming is not advisable at this time, but fishing and boating activities are still up and running.

Camping in Mono Lake with wifi provided guide

Nestled in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, Mono Lake is one of California's most unique treasures. The shallow lake covers 70 square miles and is among the oldest on the continent. As you gawk at the eerie limestone formations rising from the still waters, you just might feel like you're on another planet.

Camping near Mono Lake puts endless wilderness adventure at your fingertips. Hiking trails meander through the lakeshore and surrounding forests. Plus, the east entrance to Yosemite National Park is just a short drive away.

The lake itself lies just outside of Lee Vining—a great place to stock up on supplies. You can also swing by the visitor center for maps and regional info.

A few top activities in the Mono Basin National Forest include hiking through volcanic landscapes and fishing trout streams. To see the lake's famous tufa towers, head to the South Tufa Area. Itching to get on the water? kayaking and SUP boarding are a few ways to explore the motorboat-free lake. Just don't bust out your pole and tackle box here—there's not a single fish in Mono Lake.

Driving south on highway 395, you find even more outdoor adventure throughout Inyo National Forest. Drive the scenic June Lake Loop, or enjoy boating and downhill skiing at the Mammoth Lakes.

Out of respect for Mono Lake's fragile landscape, there's no camping on the lake itself. Mono Basin National Forest allows free backcountry camping, but you do need a fire permit. You can also choose from an array of RV parks and private campgrounds. Many are located in the surrounding mountains and Lee Vining Creek Canyon.

The Mono Lake area is known for its high winds, so be sure to bring some good stakes if you're planning on tent camping. This California destination welcomes visitors year-round, but if you want to beat the crowds, consider a winter retreat. Cool weather and solitude are the perfect backdrops to your Sierra Nevada adventure.
