Camp hosts were knowledgeable and helpful. Vault toilets were spotless and cleaned multiple times a day. Electricity is advertised as 15 amp but the two sites (22 and 18) we stayed in had 30 amp service. Water available from spigots. NO ATT cell service. We had to drive 5+ miles back towards Colo City to get service. Great views of the lake. The hosts said bears were in the area but we never saw signs of them. Lake is stocked twice a year and the locals turn out on the weekend to fish. Lots of picnic spots in the park and a lovely small stream that feeds the lake is a short walk from the campground. Bishop’s Castle (google it) is a few miles down the road and is free to visit. This is a high elevation park so drink plenty of water and give your body time to acclimate.

Half Price with the America the Beautiful Senior pass, Had 30amp service at the site and a water faucet nearby. The closest dump was at a KOA camp site about 16 miles away in Colorado City. No showers at La Vista but they did have vault toilets. Campsites were close together. It seems a popular spot for all of the locals to camp due to the fishing. Everybody was very friendly however. Me and another person shared the same camp site so, splitting the cost, I was only paying $7 per night.
