Welcome to Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground. Classic camping and fishing with excellent views of the mountains and lake We have developed tent and campervan sites right on the water. Lies within the Toiyabe National Forest area and near two distinct hot springs. The lake is great for fishing in the spring through fall. In proximity to great river and stream fishing as well. 30 minutes or 31 miles to Tioga pass into Yosemite National Park. Plenty of mountain biking and 4x4 trails access. Bodie Ghost Town is very close as well.
Some things to be aware of are that this is high desert climate, with little to moderate tree coverage. Imagine it is much like Joshua Tree National Park or Alabama Hills camping area. The elevation is 6,400 feet (1,950 meters). There are many harmless flying insects flying around here. They are called Chironomidae, and the fish love to eat them.

My boyfriend and I came for Memorial Day Weekend. Chase was a very helpful host. He would drive around and deliver firewood/ check if you were okay. His dog is an excellent co-host and Extremely friendly.
As for the site itself, we stayed in the tent closest to the water. The site had a parking spot, fire pit, picnic bench and a bottom ledge to set up one's tent. We really enjoyed it and it was a close 30 minutes to Yosemite Park (120 hwy).
There is a mini store for last-minute necessities, there are hot showers (it says you have to pay 2 dollars on signs). The facilities were clean. Boat rentals available. Most importantly very beautiful and safe. there is also a town with a quick 5-minute drive away with restaurants, stores, and friendly people.
OVERALL: Would come back and we 100% recommend!
**There were ant holes in the dirt (bottom ledge) but they didn't bother us.
**The dirt hill to go up and down from the car to tent (extremely small) had a lot of prickly bushes.
So the views from the waterfront sites are awesome. But if there’s other campers there, you’re right on top of each other. You can hear every conversation, laugh, snore, other animal noises you don’t want to hear. It’s definitely not secluded whatsoever, and pretty close to the road so all the trucks going by are pretty loud. Stars were amazing around 2 am. It is close to some really cute little towns (Bridgeport, Bodie, and Lee Vining), an hour from Mammoth Lakes, and 45 min to the Tioga Pass entrance to Yosemite. Mono lake is also very close. The site itself was clean and fairly level, and Chase was pretty laid back. Everything was good except the closeness to other sites.
It was relaxing to camp right by the water with views of the mountains. The stars at night were also very beautiful. It's a well-developed campground and even wifi is available. You'll have fellow camping neighbors either in RVs or tents right next to you. It's not the most private, but a campground with showers and flushable toilets will attract many potential guests. It's not a bad deal at all. I recommend messaging the owner first about site availability. He hooked me up with a really nice, grassy spot for my tent.
Really well kept campsite with great amenities. The campground has everything you need for a great trip. Each campsite is fairly small and all are lined up next to one another (see map on their website) so don’t expect huge amount ya of privacy, but Chase helped us out and helped my friends and I book two sites next to one another so we could all camp together, thanks Chase! Showers ($2 per) are hot and the bathrooms are clean, there is also a great communal sitting/cooking area as well as fire pits in each camp (the fire pits also have grates for cooking).
The store on the campground also sells firewood, @ 5 pieces for $5. The firewood we got was really nice and dry so it burned well. The wind also picked up a little in the evening, although not too bad and it died down again after sunset. There were also a lot of little flying bugs which were a bit annoying, but as they weren’t the biting kind we weren’t too bothered.
Overall, very much recommend this campground if you are after a relaxing time at a spot with all the amenities you need, thanks again Chase!
The scenery was really good but there lot of rodents at our site. You could hear the squeky noises during the night and see the holes they were making while were setting up the camp fire.
Lots of flies/mosquitos around. Not much care has been taken about them.
The restrooms are horribly small. You can only sit in the restrooms, no place to stand atall.
