What about Boulder Creek RV Resort? I know it's about 1.5 hours to Bishop and to Bristlecone, but it appears to be pretty nice.

Is it close enough to explore Bishop, Owens River, Bristlecone, etc?

Boulder Creek is fine -- but it is a longer "commute" to Bristlecone from Lone Pine than from Bishop. Boulder Creek is just about exactly an hour from Bishop.

As you pass through the little towns along 395, watch out for the speed limits -- in some places as low as 25.

But the good news is that the slower speeds will give you more time to look at the view -- this was taken in the Bishop Creek area, about ten miles from Bishop:

Here's a wild idea -- Keough Hot Springs. It's just south of Bishop. We stayed there in early 2020, just before Covid. They have a great pool and a hot spring. Not sure if they have full hookups or just water and electric (no sewer). I think they have a dump station.

Keough is quiet and well located. The pool facilities are kind of funky, in a good way -- sort of 1920-era buildings.

I would love to try out more primitive settings/campgrounds, however, my holding tanks are 30/30/30 and with 4 people....

That's why we need full hook ups, especially electricity in summer, when ambient temps can be over 100F
