Backed by the jagged spires of the Sawtooth range, Bridgeport is the center of a summer-to-winter recreational playground. It is popular with fishing, hiking and outdoor enthusiasts as a gateway to High Sierra canyons, peaks, lakes, streams, and hot springs. Bodie State Park is only a short trip south of Bridgeport and makes for a great day trip to explore life as it was in the earlier days.
Bridgeport comes with a complete range of amenities travelers’ desire. For those that prefer a roof over their head, you’ll find cozy cabins, historic bed and breakfast inns as well as resorts and comfortable motels. If camping out under the stars better suits you, a number of campgrounds and RV parks await your arrival. Visit the Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce website for a listing.

Established in 1924, the Bridgeport Reservoir was constructed to aid farmers and ranchers downstream in Nevada. Soon after, it was realized a strong fishery could occur here too. Today, it sustains a large and healthy population of Rainbow, Cutthroat and German Brown trout. A rich eco-system, similar to Crowley Lake, provides an unlimited food supply for the fish to grow and populate. The Reservoir provides anglers of all ages and skill to catch fish, whether one is trolling, still-fishing or fly- fishing.
