YOSEMITE IS OPEN!!!

Fall is in the air and our nights are getting cooler!  We provide Propane Heaters in each of our Tent Cabins, at no additional cost,  to help make your evenings a little more comfortable.

Leave your tent at home and stay in a furnished tent cabin with solar power for lights and charging. Each tent cabin has a queen-size bed, chairs, and some other furnitures for storage. Tents are very close to the water with a nice view of the mountains.

Welcome to Bridgeport Reservoir Marina and Campground. Classic camping and fishing with excellent views of the mountains and lake. 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. Mosquito presence is very minimal. The tent cabins are nearby to other campsites as part of a larger campground. They are within eyesite and earshot so if you are looking for total privacy then this listing may not be for you. Feel free to ask me any questions or concerns. The walk to the bathrooms is about 75 yards.

A message about cancellation policy: It is firm. If you cancel outside of 7 days leading up to your reservation, then full refund is made. Inside of 7 days is extremely difficult to rebook your site to someone else, and therefor no refund will be made. We understand that life happens; sickness, car trouble, life events. But will not refund so close to your reservation date. By making a booking request, we are to understand that you have considered and accepted this policy. Thank you for understanding that although we are here to provide you with something fun that is part of your experience, that this is also a small seasonal business that supports real people.

I stayed in cabin 1 for two nights. The genuine kindness of the staff was apparent and they want to ensure their patrons feel comfortable. The mattress was great and the tent had plenty of space to store all my things. We were supplied a portable heater to keep the room extra cozy at night (temps. dropped into the high 30s) and a bug zapper in the case you may be skittish to small flies and moths. I usually get eaten alive by mosquitoes but did not here! Not a single bite! The stars were so bright and beautiful at night, also the sunsets and the sunrises over the ridges were awesome. Wind did pick up a bit at dusk when I as trying to cook dinner, but it died down once it got dark when I stayed here. I would stay here again and recommend this place.

We had to sleep in our car overnight! The temperature was near freezing. The host ensured us that we would be able to check in with a late arrival, however no one was available to check us in and the campsite was padlocked preventing entry. We called nearly a dozen times. When I asked about refunding the might we had to sleep in the car, I was told to contact Hipcamp.

We ended up having some trouble (hipcamps fault) and our stay was double booked. Our hosts were quick to make our stay EVEN BETTER. They were incredibly kind and hospitable on arrival and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
The town of Bridgeport was a pleasant surprise with shops, market, local rodeo, and incredible views of the Sierras. We drove out to Bodie State Park (you don’t want to miss it) and had a great time exploring the mining ghost town. And had a great chat with locals and Ranger Dustin who shared lots of historical knowledge on the area.
Incredible views of preserved agricultural land and long standing legacy of cattle.
Definitely staying again.

I can not wait to return to this campsite. We found this place by sheer luck. I’ve always wanted to go GLAMPING as my husband calls it and this place lives up to the hype. The bed was so comfortable and staff went over all amenities thoroughly. They’ve thought of everything here. My only complaint is that I didn’t have more time here!!!!

One of the most incredible mountains and lake view right in front of your cabins.
Cabin crews are very friendly and kind.
That was one of my favorite stay.
I would come back soon!

Beautiful scenery, concept and nicely decorated tent bedding and amenities. Bathrooms were small and clean. I know the bugs by lake situation can’t be helped but could def damper your stay. I got a net to wear over my head to sleep in the second night. Because it really can’t be helped they will enter with you it is just nature. Nothing against the host. The canvas, nets and bug zapper on the porch are all designed to help and I respect the attempt. Sunsets were beautiful.

This place was fabulous! I stayed in one of the three “tent cabins,” which are right up on the beach of the reservoir. It’s a small campground overall, so yes you’re not hugely separated from the RVs & tent campers, but there’s a fence and it’s not roudy anyway. I felt like it was my own little world. The tent cabin is cute! Cute decor, smelled lovely inside, chairs on the cabin deck, more chairs facing the beach on the sand, a picnic table. Even if you’re careful you won’t be able to keep 100% of the bugs out, but they provide a bug zapper to use inside or outside! Didn’t get a single bug bite. Mattress was very comfy! The lake and surrounding pasteurs are full of geese, snowy egrets (?), and grazing cattle! Really great sunsets, too. They have running toilets and warm showers. Stations for dishwashing, too. Everything was clean. The staff were all professional, helpful, and friendly. I loved my time here as a base camp for Eastern Sierra adventures. Will be back with my friends!!

Enough space to cook!  Didn’t have to bring chairs or a folding table. 😎Great views from the deck!Front “door” has two layers:  solid and screen.  You can see phone charging station on the left, bug zapper on the right, and electric lantern top center.  I had more than enough light to read on my bed at night.Cute interior!  Lots of natural light.  3 windows that can be unzipped if you need a breeze.  They provide a fitted sheet.  Foam mattress super comfy!
