A great place to stay. Basically a dirt parking lot and pretty dusty, but it's the desert! There were several sites large enough for our 38' motorhome; we were one of the largest in the campground. Strong 50 amp service, water & sewer. Excellent bathrooms and showers; very clean and roomy. The only downside was that there was absolutely no provision to hang anything up, unless you used the handicapped shower.
If you enjoy walking at all you can walk to any number of restaurants and retail stores, typically 3-4 blocks away including Von's (Safeway) grocery and K-Mart. Other campers here were very friendly and it was busy with a couple of 'groups' when we stayed. Office people charming & helpful.
We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Bishop is a good place to stay when visiting area attractions. We loved Convict Lake, the Ancient Bristlecone Pines. Those and many other attractions less than hour away. Yosemite (and Mono Lake) maybe 1.5 hours. Very convenient!

This is a decent stop over for a short period. This is the actual RV park at the fairgrounds, NOT where they park RV's for the annual Mule Day celebration. It is a line of FHU sites at the county fairgrounds. Surface is gravel and level. Utilities easily accessible and worked fine. Sites are wide enough to park a vehicle next to your rig if you squeeze a little, but there's no problem parking in front of your rig either. All sites are back ins. The bathhouse is exceptional. Large, bright, modern, and scrupulously clean. The shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The wi-fi was a bit spotty, but worked surprisingly well most of the time. Strong Verizon signal. $30 per night seems a bit high for what you get, but this IS California after all! Bishop is a large enough town to have all the necessary services. There are stores and restaurants within about a 10-15 minute walk. There seem to be a lot of long-term residents and even though this is not high season, there were only about 7 sites available when we arrived. It wouldn't be a bad idea to check availability ahead of time, especially if there is an event going on or during the busy season, and/or have an alternative in mind. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Truck Camper.

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.

This park is a hidden jewel for the Bishop area. it is located at the Tri-county fairground. All spaces are back in, so when pulling a toad you will need to unhook prior to pulling into the parking area itself. There is plenty of room to maneuver, hook and unhook. Basically it is a parking lot with full service hookups on a dirt and gravel area. There are lawns in the fairground and that is accessible to the RV park. Few trees to block satellite receivers. Restrooms and showers are new and spotless. Easy walking distance to stores, restaurants and Shutz Bakery. At $25 a night it is a great deal for the traveler or the person who is staying a few days in the area. Not fancy, but plenty or room to maneuver your rig, and the park is very clean. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

I reviewed this CG in Nov 2013 and gave it a 9. This time it's an 8 because we're here for Mule Days, a week long town event that attracts upwards of 30,000 attendees, many in RVs. We're in a dry camp area and it's quite pleasant but, and this is a big but, there are only two shower facilities. Of course, we can shower in our rig but that quickly depletes our 35 gal fresh water and fills the holding tanks. To have the "honey wagon" service our rig costs $55 ($20 fresh water, $35 to empty tanks.) Next time, we'll know to reserve a FHU site. To be fair, we should have asked about the water/sewer situation when we made our reservations. The $16 rate is a weekly rate of $115 divided by 7. Big plus for Bishop residents, they're very friendly and welcoming of tourists. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stop for a few days. It isn't fancy but the location is great for walking to anywhere in town. Restroom and shower facilities are new and clean. Office staff is very sweet and welcoming. It was quiet at night and early mornings. We would stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Travel Trailer.

How you like this one is going to depend on what you're after. No WiFi. No cable TV. We couldn't get over-the-air TV either, but very few obstacles for satellite. It's far more dirt than gravel, but this appropriate for the Eastern Sierra. (After visiting almost 40 RV parks in the last year, this is the first where we used one of those big patio rugs to minimize the dirt we tracked in!). The RV park part of the fairgrounds was hard for us to find. (Off of 395, entrance to the RV park is off of Sierra.) Plenty of sites are available that would handle even the largest rigs. Hook-ups are where they should be for motorhomes. The park has what we look. It was, with one exception, very quiet. It is level and satellite TV friendly. All for a great price. A word of caution however. The community appears to make, appropriately, good use of the fairgrounds. While we were there, a group rented one of the halls and played very loud music from 7:30pm until midnight. Also, two different high school groups were using the area, including the back of the campground, to work on homecoming floats. The kids were all very well behaved though. We will definitely stay here again. It is a very central location for exploring from Mammoth to Lone Pine, but we will check the fairgrounds' calendar of events first. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

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.

We only found this RV park because of this review site. The facilities are fairly new and they aren't advertising yet. The bathroom building with large social room is nearly completed. This is on the edge of the fairgrounds, and sites are quite close together, but all we needed was a safe and quiet place to park. There are no tables or other amenities. Close to town (and Starbucks with free Wi-fi) is within 2 blocks. Great place to call home while exploring the endless opportunities in the area. Office staff is very friendly. Pay by cash or check. Call the office first for availability. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

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.
