The resort seems to be a basic fish camp type of resort nothing special. The surrounding lakes on the other hand are beautiful and serene. The hike is very easy and doable despite the elevation which may scare some off, but go for it, really.

The apple pie here is amazing. Best you'll ever eat, however since they make it from scratch there daily, you need to get it early because they sell out. On the flip side, the server, whom I believe is a part owner, is extremely rude. She walked away from us in the middle of taking our order. It is very... More

VLR is located above Bridgeport, CA, at the 9820 foot elevation. The owners, John and Carolyn Webb, provide excellent service! The restaurant has a good selection of traditional resort food. The store portion has just about any fishing tackle you might need. We rented cabin #2 for a week. It was clean and comfortable. Limited electricity is provided by the... More

The scenery was absolutely beautiful, between the lake, trees and stars. The cabins are rustic, if you are looking for fancy this isn't in. Its relaxing. There's a little restaurant with excellent food. The only downfall is you are not allowed to have a camp fire.

Cabins are neglected and could use a good upgrade and cleaning. You never know what to expect from the owners... sometimes nice and very helpfull and the next just plain annoyed and rude. We have been there twice in the last 5 years and will not be going back. We will be trying somewhere else. So sad because the natural... More

We have been coming to VLR for 25 years. We always have a good time here. The host John and Carolyn have always very pleasant to us. We have even played golf with John in Mammoth. I understand there is a lot to maintain with all these cabins, but after 25 yrs in cabin #1 not much has changed except... More

The woman was rude. She acted like she was doing us a favor by allowing us to walk into her store. I don't need that kind of silliness. I won't be back to this place. The cabins are pretty ran down also. They need some attention but I don't see it happening.

By reading all the negative reviews we were pretty much convinced not to stay here. We decided to take a chance and booked one night at VLR. We stayed in cabin 16 and loved it, It was clean and quite. It is rustic if you want wifi and tv this is not the place for you. If you plan on... More
