The SpaceWe're a husband & wife team and this is our adopted home - a small RV Park Resort/Marina/Campground located directly on the shores of Bridgeport Reservoir.
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.
When you arrive we won’t hand you a list of rules but we may ask you to join us for a campfire, remind you to conserve water, and to separate your trash so we can recycle it. Regarding your pets, we love all dogs, some dogs we love more then others. We love dogs and your dog will be part of our family and they must conduct themselves accordingly. That’s about it, oh yeah relax, it’s your vacation.
It’s important to us that our guests don’t feel they are renting a rental trailer as much as they’re immersing themselves into the outdoor experience. You may just want to lay in one of our hammocks and read for three days. For the more adventurous we offer 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, campfires & s'mores. We do have modern conveniences such as wifi internet; however, we encourage our guest to “unplug” and immerse in the slow pace life instead.
We hope Paradise Shores Camp becomes your home as it did 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 Paradise Shores.
We proudly know this area intimately and willingly share the secret spots with you. The excellent hiking/running trails including the Pacific Crest Trail, the thousands of miles of ATV, dirtbike and mountain bike trails are accessible right from our park or within a short drive from Paradise Shores. The surrounding terrain offers endless activities and unbelievable scenery in remote wilderness settings.
While spending couple months in Baja during the winter of 2013, we felt in love with the Mexican culture, art, and hospitality. We wanted to share the experience with our guests at Paradise Shores. So, we transformed the former Cascade trailer into Baja trailer. Make sure to bring some tequila to truly soak in the atmosphere!
Our Baja themed camper is comfortable, fun, and offers great views of the lake and the mountains. Even though this trailer doesn't have any slide outs, the Baja is still plenty spacious. It is ideal for a couple, but can sleep 3 adults. The sleeping options consist of queen size bedroom and a pull out couch located in the living room/kitchen. Free WiFi internet, TV with a DVD player, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster are all provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, cookware, glasses, cups, plates, paper towels, soap, and all the typical kitchenware. You’ll also find there a breakfast selection, including coffee, creamers, oatmeal, yogurt, and a variety of breakfast bars. Sheets, towels, and dish towels are ready for you. So, all you really need to bring is some clothing and food. Pretty much everything else is covered. And if there is anything else that you need, we have a store on promises that carries most convenience items.
The trailer also has a cooling system, and an outside area with outdoor furniture and an awning, as well as the fireplace and barbecue for you to use. We also provide one day’s supply of firewood, kindling and charcoal briquettes.
Our rates are all inclusive (space rent, propane, wifi, etc. are all included).

Interaction with GuestsWe’re very knowledgeable about this area, and we enjoy sharing this beautiful place with our guests. The NeighborhoodOur park is located 2 miles from the historic town of Bridgeport. Bridgeport is an old mining town a cute little town with couple restaurants, sporting store, gift shops, bakery etc. Getting AroundYou will need a car to get around this area. Other Things to NoteTaxes, like death, are unavoidable. Our prices INCLUDE 12% Transit Occupancy Tax (TOT) which is one of the only ways the local county gets any income. It goes to good use like schools, roads and such. This tax is mandatory by the county for everyone staying for less then 30 days. You can find more info here… (URL HIDDEN) If you're staying in Mono County, you will have to pay this tax. Unless your AirBnB host does not collect or pay TOT, which is illegal.
Please keep in mind that some of the mountain passes - Tioga Road (main road to Yosemite – HWY 120), Sonora Pass (HWY 108), and Monitor Pass (HWY 89) don’t open until late April/May sometimes even June depending on snow year. Plan accordingly. Also, some of these mountain passes that take you to our park can be closed during stormy weather. This is especially true in the spring and fall.
In regards to the pets, please respect our trailers. We don’t charge a pet fee, so no animals on the furniture. Let us know about your dog prior to booking.
