7 night stay in mid-June 2018. Reasonably priced RV park with nice landscaping. The sites are clean and well maintained. Most of the sites are a hard-packed sand/dirt; there are a couple that are all concrete and a couple that are covered with artificial turf. There is a small bark park that is also covered in artificial turf. Community fire pit and several community tables and BBQs. The bathrooms/showers were clean, showers were hot. Showers are not coin operated. There is a small store with a few items you might need and a few that you might just want (like ice cream). Sites are full hookup, with a hedge between the neighboring sites and a picnic table. There are 4 sites that are nose in and do not have a hedge; this is nice if you are traveling with another RV and at least one is a motorhome. The motorhome can nose in, the other can back in. That way the entry doors face each other and there is a little courtyard between the RVs. These sites do not have a hedge. The sites are not especially large, but are definitely adequate. Folks with slides on both sides of their RV will find that the passenger side slides take up a fair amount of the free space at the site. You are allowed the RV and two additional vehicles at the site as long as the additional vehicles can completely fit on the site. Easy walk to downtown LB (WTC, Federal Building, etc.) Easy walk to several restaurants, Catalina Express and the aquarium. There is a bike/walk path along one side of the park (lagoon side). One of our camp chairs was stolen from our site that bordered the bike path; I suspect that somebody on the path climbed over the fence and took it. I witnessed the on-site staff go out of their way to assist a traveling couple from another country that ended up at the park late at night, after hours. The park was full but they found room for them to park for the night. It would have been easy for the staff to just say they were full and turn them away. Kudos! We camped at Golden Shore RV Resort in a Motorhome.
Sites are $60 weekday / $69 Fri/Sat, with a discount for a full week. Based on the location, the condition of the park, the condition of the site, the size of the site, the overall cleanliness of the park and the kindness of the staff, and the value, I give them 9 stars.

This review covers the Meadows camping area of Millerton Lake SRA. The Meadows area has the RV/hook up sites. Full hook ups, W/P/S are in the RV Loop, sites 120-144; sites 117, 118 and 119 have W&P, no sewer, but there is a dump station that you pass on the road to Meadows. The RV sites are arranged in a loop.
Sites 120-144 are basically just large asphalt spaces. Plenty of room for an RV and a large vehicle or two small vehicles parked either in front of the RV or along side if you don't want to put out the awning.
Behind the RV site, off asphalt is a picnic table and fire ring. Sites 132, 133, 120 and 144 are ADA sites. There is quite a bit of extra room at these sites, and the picnic areas also have a wood canopy over the picnic area.
Sites 117-119 do not as much asphalt as the other RV sites and also have the picnic canopy. These sites will still accommodate a large RV. Sites 117-119 more closely resemble a campsite than the other asphalt full hookup sites.
The camp host is at the entrance of the RV loop.
There are bathrooms/coin operated showers at each end of the RV loop. I didn't use the showers, but I noted that they were clean and attended to. All bathrooms and showers are individual rooms.
The non-RV sites all have water (spring loaded spigot, no threads) and are ample and all seem to have canopies. If you don't absolutely have to have power and sewer and can get buy with water in our tank, these sites are actually very nice, some overlooking the lake.
As of 4/3/2016 the lake is nearly full again with the water level just shy of the spillway. When the snow cap melts later in the Spring the lake will probably release water.
The comfort station at the entrance to the loop has a water machine similar to what you see in front of supermarkets, .50 cents a gallon. The machine also sells ice, 8 lbs for $5.
The roads to the campground are in good shape.
No WiFi, but cell service (Verizon) had a strong signal. We camped at Millerton Lake State Recreaton Area in a Motorhome.
NOTE: No firewood for sale in the park, BYOFW.

Stayed here over New Years weekend 2016. The campground is a converted mobile home park. There are still mobile home residents that live across a small bridge in a area of the park separate from the campground; however the bathroom and shower house is in this section of the park.
The park has a mix of electric/water and electric/water/sewer sites. Most of the sites are pretty close. There is a small tent area.
You pay a premium for the sites along the river, but they are worth it. We camped at Sequoia RV Ranch in a Motorhome.
This campground is located a few miles outside Three Rivers, Calif. The campground has no supplies available, so if you don't have a car you must bring everything you need with you.

Stayed at the Pinnacles Campground over Presidents Day weekend 2016. The campground was full. All the RV sites are in Loop "D" which is close to the entrance. The RV sites have power (110 plugs, 30A and 50A all in the box). There are non-hose threaded drinking water spigots throughout the loop that can be used to fill containers and one hose threaded spigot near the loop entrance that can be used to fill a water tank. A dump station (free) is available.
The sites are ample, we didn't feel crowded at all. Some sites have more shade than others. The sites on the outside of the loop that run along CSR 25 seem to have more shade and the most room. We have a 31" motor home. Our site could have easily handled a much larger MH.
The park is clean and mostly well maintained. The picnic table at our site could use a little TLC. All the sites have a large metal fire ring with a BBQ grate.
The park is operated by a concessionaire, not the National Parks Service, but is patrolled by NPS Rangers and campground staff.
The bathroom/shower is a short walk from Loop D. Two showers. Water pressure was good and the water was plenty warm. There is a sandy gravely area in front of bathrooms which tracks into the bathroom. The floor is dirty immediately after being cleaned .. which seems to occur on a regular basis. There are no hooks or shelves to hang/place toiletries.
The office/store/visitor center is at the entrance. They were well stocked with most everything you might need. There is also a pool which opens sometime around April.
Everybody from the NPS staff, the rangers and the campground staff was friendly and helpful.
Something to consider, if you can do without the electrical, a lot of the tent sites are beautiful, secluded and very shady.
In addition to the camp site fee you must pay a National Parks entrance fee, it was $15 per vehicle per week during our stay.
Campfires may or may not be permitted depending on the fire danger. If campfires are allowed, bring your own wood!!! Firewood is $11 for a small bundle if purchased at the camp store.
NPS runs a shuttle to the trailheads.
We were very happy with our stay and intend to return. We camped at Pinnacles Campground in a Motorhome.
