Bridgeport Reservoir is a lake at the lower end of Bridgeport Valley in Mono County, California. Its earth-filled dam was constructed in 1923 by the Walker River Irrigation District, along the East Walker River. The campground and marina was built I-don't-know-how-long ago, but it sure is nice!
About Us: Welcome to Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground. Join us for the classic camping and fishing experience with unique views of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Within the Toiyabe National Forest, Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground is conveniently located near two distinct hot spring areas. A true angler's paradise, the Reservoir has excellent trout fishing from spring through fall and is close by to multiple rivers for incredible fly fishing. A short 30-minute drive to Tioga pass will bring you straight into the heart of Yosemite National Park. Off-road enthusiasts will have a heyday will the plethora of 4x4 trails in the area as well as the famous trail that brings you right to the Bodie Ghost Town.
Climate & Ecosystem: At 6,400 feet (1,950 meters), this high desert climate has little to moderate tree coverage and gets hot during the days and cool at night. The conditions are much like Joshua Tree National Park or Alabama Hills camping area. During your visit, you will notice many flying insects that resemble mosquitos. These Chironomidae are harmless and do not bite. On the contrary, the mosquito presence is very minimal.
Lake Levels: Due to this devastating drought across California and the Western United States, reservoir levels are low. As of August 1st, 2022, Bridgeport Reservoir is approximately 25 feet below normal. Swimming is not advisable at this time, but fishing and boating activities are still up and running.

#6: Pull-Through, Full Hookups
It was nice having full hookups. The park was relatively quiet and Everyone we talked to was friendly. They have a store there that was convenient as well. The only issues were that there were so many bees and the water was so low you couldn’t go down to it. Neither of these could be helped.

Stylish Sanctuary Tent Cabin
Although the lake was a little low, the tent was very comfortable. Feels more like a small cabin than a tent. We enjoyed this place very much, great views and great service. We would definitely recommend.

Great location - there is so much to do in the area. I did think the campsites were more private but they are pretty close to each other. But the location is beautiful.

Waking up to the morning sun as it reveals the mountains and reservoir is a great way to start a day. The showers were refreshing and the city of Bridgeport is welcoming enough to provide the daily needs of the stay. I'd recommend this to anyone as there's ease of access to Mono Lake and Bodie State Park, while other worthwhile hikes are sure to be had. Pet's were allowed and our dog took in the migrating birds. Not literally.
