Great family owned and operated park for over 50 years! The owners have done a great job maintaining the park which is not an easy task given it's location and weather conditions most of the year. Our site was clean and raked. All sites have a nice picnic table and fire ring. The sites are among the largest I've ever visited (barring Texas sized sites!) . The staff was incredibly friendly as well. The store is very well stocked! Ice, beer & wine, souvenirs, ice cream, a ton of groceries (even cake mix!). I was kind of shocked to see such a well stocked and run store at 7000' in the middle of nowhere! This is also one of the (if not) quietest most relaxing RV parks I've ever been to. If you want to be loud, obnoxious, and party, this IS NOT the park for you. Matter of fact, please stay at Shaver. The scenery is absolutely amazing and the quiet is a huge part of that, so please, please help to keep this park peaceful. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything the previous reviewer (allens) said, and then more. Super-sized sites, sufficient to accommodate TWO rigs. 30A and WiFi ($) were more than adequate. The campground was meticulously maintained; hosts provided a $3 ice cream social, which was over the top. EVERYONE we met was very friendly.
If you seek off-the-grid and remoteness, this is your campground - about an hour east of Shaver Lake deep within the national forest. We would camp here again. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Really enjoyed this resort. Because of holiday paid $44 for 3 nights and $39 for last night there. The sites had full hookups with 30 amp service, think some do have 50 but since you don't need air conditioner 50 not necessary. Spaces are some of the largest I've seen and very easy to back into. Several people had truck, trailer, car and a boat in the space. It's does take awhile to get to the resort. The distance from Shaver Lake isn't far and the road is good but you still need to go slow so about another 50 minutes from Shaver. WiFi is a pay service with some restrictions, no Netflix or hi data usage sites. If your looking for a very nice relaxing location in mountains I highly recommend this resort. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The closest gas station is in Shaver Lake. Talked to several people there and many brought extra fuel especially if they had boats.

We loved Wishon Village! The owners were fabulous and all of the folks that spend the summer up on the mountain hiding from the heat in the valley were wonderful, too. It's the perfect place to have that true camping experience. Whether tent or RV, each site has plenty of space. Our site was big enough for several RVs and cars/boats. Most sites are 40' wide and 60' deep. Nice fire rings are in each site as well as a picnic table. The camp store is great, well stocked. It's nice to know that I don't have to drive 2 hours into the valley to get something. The activities are fun and family friendly. Everyone is welcome to every activity. The park is kid friendly and pet friendly. They have a really nice dog park and I think they were building a second one this summer. The area is amazing for photography, long quiet rides, and beautiful hikes. I highly recommend this park! We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I loved this park. Large wide spaces and it feels and looks like a park and not a RV park. They are terraced so you have a lot of privacy. All of the sites had been raked and have clean fire pits. It's quite a drive but worth the beauty of the area. Close to two lakes. Courtwright reservoir is about 30 minutes and is breathtaking with granite all around it. No cell phone or cable but you can use a satellite dish in most sites. Great trout fishing in both Wishon and Courtwright. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very interesting drive to reach this campground from the Fresno area because of the elevation (6800') and the serpentine roads on the last 60 miles, but particularly the last 17 miles. Driving slowly and defensively a must but worth the rewards of the area. Hiking, fishing and exploring are readily available. Could be very crowded in the Summer. Sites are generous and gravel covered. A more rustic feel to this campground. No cell or Wi-Fi. Would definitely return. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at. The area is fantastic. Waterfalls all around the lake. Do yourself a favor and rent a boat to drive around the lake. Also check out Courtright Reservoir about 30 minutes up the road. The scenery is incredible. The RV sites are some of the largest we've seen in a campground. Would have given it a 10 if it had cable hookups. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I would have rated this site higher, but for the lack of cable TV hookups. With a toddler, we get used to having cartoons and the local TV reception is almost nil. We aren't full-timers, so satellite is a hassle. Other than that, it is a clean, quite, peaceful park. The store is well-stocked with friendly service. There was a men's retreat happening while we were there, and aside from hearing there sound system during the day, their activities did not get in the way of our enjoyment, which is a tribute to the camp setup and management. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed twice at this location. It has big spaces and is quiet. We got into a problem with a reservation over Memorial Day weekend. We drove within 10 miles of the RV park when we got into snow. I was afraid I would get stuck, so we turned around. We arrived home three hours later and I called and canceled. Since it was a holiday they kept one day fee and $10.00. They allowed us to reschedule the other two days during the week. We accepted and went a few weeks later. The park is clean and the people there were very friendly. We would definitely go back. The elevation is about 6800 feet. A lot of the sites don't have a lot of trees so be sure to have something for extra shade during the summer afternoons. There is no TV hookup or newspapers. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

What a fabulous park. Absolutely beautiful. We camped here the first week of May, and there were only 2 trailers in the park. Still had snow on the ground. Big spaces. Would have given it a 10 if it had cable TV and recycle bins. (I know logistically speaking this may not be possible given the isolated location.)

We stayed in this park every weekend of the summer. We like sites 1-24. Sites 25-97 are a bit more crowded, and the smoke from the night fires tends to linger. I believe sites 38-48 are 50 amp. Some sites have steep approaches and tight corners. The park rents small fishing boats and a couple of pontoon boats. Wishon Reservoir is a 15 mph lake so it is very quiet. The park is at 6700 feet and the night sky is magnificent. There are many hiking trails and 4 WD off road trails to explore. Plan on it taking 30-40 minutes to cover the 15 miles after turning onto McKinley Grove Road. It is a winding mountain road with 20-30 mph curves. We plan for two hours from Fresno by car, and about two and one half hours by RV. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

From check in to check out everyone was very friendly, even the dock man was great with the children and loading the boats. The campground has huge spaces with trees and at least half day shade. We really enjoyed the amount of space each site was given! The roads around the campground were a little narrow, making getting in and out of our spot a little more difficult than normal. The lake is a mile away and has great boat fishing and limited shore fishing. The store was well stocked and reasonably priced. A great place to spend a relaxing week, even with the kids!

We visited this camp ground on a hunting trip, very quit and peaceful. Very few people around during this part of the year. The store had very little to offer also do to the end of the season and getting close to closing for the winter. Mangers where very helpful with any questions. Camp sites are very big and roomy with tables and fire rings. Would add that there is no C-phone service but a pay phone near the office/store, be advise that long distance and collect call charges are outrageously high. $35.00 for a 4 min. call. Would return again. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.
