General Information

Description - Bridgeport State Park's 7,500 feet of fresh water shoreline provide for swimming, boating, fishing and water skiing. The Park offers sightseeing, including a 1/4 mile trail leading to an observation point.

Camping facilities include 10 standard campsites, 20 hookup sites (with one trailer dump), four walk-in standard sites and eight group camps.

Other amenities include picnic sites, play areas, two comfort stations, a boat launch dock and boat docks.

The Lake Woods Golf Club, Inc. operates a golf course, club house and food sales concession within the park.

Recreation - Activities in the park include picnicking, camping, swimming, play area activities, sightseeing, boating, fishing and water skiing.

Climate - Washington's climate varies with each region. The Cascades split the state and alter weather patterns. Bridgeport State Park, located east of the mountains, receives significantly less rainfall than regions west of the mountains with an average annual precipitation of twelve inches.

Average summer temperatures are 94 degrees maximum and 50 degrees minimum. Because central Washington is landlocked and subject to winter winds, winter temperatures are much colder than those in western Washington.

Location - Bridgeport State Park is located three miles northeast of Bridgeport off Highway 17 in Okanogan County.
