Relax in our beautiful bluff over the lake back-in spots for any sized motorhome, RV, travel trailer, or tent! Carefree camping meets Eastern Sierra mountain views in these lovely back-in sites. Complete with a water spigot, an outdoor picnic table, and (if in an RV) access to our easy pull-up dump station.

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 10 feet below normal. Swimming is not advisable at this time, but fishing and boating activities are still up and running. 

Are you visiting Yosemite National Park? Please see these highlights from the Yosemite NP Website:

  • Reservations will once again be required to enter Yosemite National Park from May 20th to September 30th, 2022 during the hours of 6am to 4pm. Visitors entering the park outside of those peak hours are not required to have a reservation. (Park entry fees still apply). 
  • All YARTS bus riders have the park entry fee included in their fare so a reservation is not required. The YARTS bus leaves from Mammoth Lakes, June Lake, and Lee Vining daily from June 15th to October 15th, 2022,  (pending Tioga Pass opening).  YARTS tickets can be purchased same-day with the bus driver or reserved in advance at the YARTS website.
  • Through traffic (east-west travelers who are not stopping or visiting the park but simply driving over Tioga Pass to another destination) will also need a reservation if entering during peak hour times. (Park entry fees still apply).

We loved our stay! The site was super clean and super organized. The views were gorgeous. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. The area is quiet despite being next to a highway. We were allowed to check-in late and complete our paperwork in the morning. The camp host provided us with so much information on things to do in the area. We also appreciated that the camp host put on a mask when we arrived in the office wearing masks.
