Last summer, I took a little trip up California's Owens Valley.
Along the way, I stopped at the infamous Manzanar Relocation Camp. For the first night's stay, I stayed at Brown's Town Campground in Bishop. I did not make any camping reservations as I decided to just "wing it".
I stopped at a coffee shop for a snack. While there, I checked Google for a campground in the Bishop area. I saw several listed.
I looked one over and the people there didn't look too friendly and the campground was rather primitive. So I pressed on.

I went to the next campground, which was Brown's Town Campground. It looked like a nice place. It was shady and situated next to a golf course. I walked into the office and found that they had vacancies and the price was reasonable ($30/night).

The access road was nice and wide and the campsite I was assigned was level, so I didn't have to use the leveling blocks. It had full hook-ups, a table and fire ring.
The campground has a nicely-stocked store. Their prices were reasonable when I made a few purchases.

Unfortunately, since Bishop gets quite hot during the summer months, the campground does not have a swimming pool to cool off in.
At RV Park Reviews, I gave Brown's Town Campground four out of five stars. I would stay there again should I visit the Owens Valley on another trip.
My grade: A- (had there been a pool, it would have been an A).
