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. Mosquito activity is minimal. Currently the drought has the water level low.

The location is beautiful, right on the reservoir, gorgeous snow capped mountains in the distance. Bathrooms/showers were clean. The WiFi did not work, the only downside.
What a lovely, hidden gem of a spot! Our camping site was right on the water with stunning views of the Sierras. The hosts and fellow campers were very friendly. In the morning, we made a quick trip to nearby Travertine Hot Springs, which shouldn't be missed. Hoping to return soon.
Loved this site! The owners are so nice and helpful and the site is stunning with Mountain View’s over the lake! We woke up at 530 am and the full moon was still out over the mountains. Best way to wake up ever! Wish I could have stayed longer. It’s also super close to a lot of really fun things to see and do.
Beautiful view right on the water with amazing views of the mountains and comfortable campsites. Staff was very friendly, helpful, & hospitable. Close proximity to town, and Buckeye and Travertine Hot Springs. Good camp amenities onsite such as bathrooms, fire wood, and more.
This was an awesome campsite! We got lucky and had the reservoir pretty much to ourselves. The views were gorgeous, the land was well kept, and the bathrooms were clean. They even had heating and warm water in them, very bougée. Kirk was the host while we were there and he was great. He was respectful and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The location was also great; close to shops, hot springs, the twin lakes, and beautiful trails. I would definitely stay here again!
Nice view, good location
Very helpful host. The reservoir at a low level makes for a nice view: a huge plain with the sunrise coloring the Sierra Nevada pink. Good place to stay when road tripping the US-395
Really nice stay
The location of the campsite was beautiful and the staff was so friendly. The bathrooms were impeccable would recommend to anybody looking for a nice site near Yosemite.
