Little has changed since we have been here about 4 years ago except the camping fee has increased significantly and the attitude of the fairgrounds employees has gone down. The web site stated the daily rate is $30 but the actual cost is $35. The fairground employee stated that the $30 was the 2016 price. Hmm, it's been almost 10 months and they still did not get around to modifying their website. This campground is basically a flat graveled lot with FHU. There is a bathroom with showers and WiFi but that's it. Checking around other campgrounds within Bishop I noticed that the fairgrounds rate was at the town's upper limit. Minimum amount of maintenance was done to the bathrooms while we were here. The floor was swept and the garbage was removed. Even less was done to the shower room. Pieces of soap and a discarded shampoo bottle have not been removed in 4 days. The concrete pad leading to the bathrooms still had leaves and dirt after the wind storm 3 days ago. The fairground employees did not bother notifying the campers that there would be a scheduled electrical outage at night. I mentioned this to the employee and basically she could not care. I also mentioned that the interior lights in the campground were not working. Her answer was that they don't keep them on at night. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here during the Mule Days in Bishop.

Grassy sites, pretty level, water and 30 amp electric, with no sewer, rigs need to be self contained .

Pump truck is available for a fee. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

Least expensive full hookup park in town. Convenient to town, quiet at night, good Verizon signal. But I would not stay here again, it is nothing but a dirt parking lot. Despite the park being almost empty, two nights in a row the staff put new arrivals right next to us. It seems like it would be a common courtesy to leave space between RV's when a park has dozens of empty spaces. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

The fairground is in walking distance of Bishop. The entire campground is on packed gravel and all sites are straight back-ins. The utilities are in the outer middle side of the sites. There is enough width within each of the sites to park your RV and vehicle. There is FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service at each site and the voltage was good. There is also plenty of room to back in the rig. The bathroom/shower building is brand new and very clean. There is a separate room within the bathroom for 3 shower stalls. Unfortunately you can not lock the shower room. The campground does not have WiFi but our Verizon air card and cell phone worked will here. There was some noise from US-395 during the morning “rush hour” but it was not bad. The price reflects a weekly rate. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

Level, back in sites. Gravel, no grass and no shade. No reservations: 1st come, 1st served. No WiFi or cable TV. But for $25 you can't have everything. However, if you are looking for a no frills, clean park this is a great spot. Spacious clean bathrooms and showers. Two blocks off of 395 so it is very quiet especially for sleeping. Five minute walk through fairgrounds and you are on main street. Not sure if people don't know about this park. There were only two others there and one pulled out late evening. We had park to ourselves. Starbucks is two blocks away. Would stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one night going and one night returning from a vacation trip. The office closes at 4:00 PM and accepts only cash. Nice place to stay while visiting Bishop. Sites are level but are tight for big rigs to maneuver around and get parked in. The sites with hookups are all dirt. We have four slides and had no problem with having enough room and clearance. The restrooms and showers are being finished so were not available while we were there. This is bare bones camping for amenities. There is no dedicated pet area and please clean up after your pet. We parked and then used the tow vehicle to shop, sight see, and eat dinner out. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was a pleasant discovery for us. There is not much to choose from in Bishop during the winter but we found 42 brand new full hook-up sites, all with 50 amp service and very reasonably priced at the Tri-County Fairgrounds. There is no current advertising for this park but I recommend it highly over the other parks in this town. Best of all it's quiet here, far different from the other places that are all located right on busy Highway 395. Soon to be opening will be some incredibly nice, brand new restroom and shower facilities along with a 2700 sq ft meeting room and kitchen facility that will be perfect for groups, RV clubs or family reunions. The fair manager and his staff are very accommodating and working very hard to establish this facility as a 'first choice' for RV'ers. If you don't require a swimming pool or other fancy amenities, this place offers great value. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Fifth Wheel.
