About: Bridgeport State Park is a 748-acre camping park with 7,500 feet of freshwater shoreline on Rufus Woods Lake. Set directly behind Chief Joseph Dam, this lake is actually a segment of the Columbia River.
The park provides 18 acres of lawn and some shade in the midst of a desert terrain. “Haystacks,” unusual volcanic formations resembling their name, are the park’s most striking feature.
Located behind Chief Joseph Dam, Bridgeport State Park provides lake, lawn and shade in the midst of a desert terrain. “Haystacks,” unusual large volcanic formations, are the park’s most unique feature. Interpretative programs are offered seasonally on many topics.
The park provides 14 tent spaces, 20 utility spaces, one dump station, two restrooms (both ADA) and two showers. Maximum site length is 45 feet (may have limited availability). Since the park is heavily used, mid-week is the recommended time to locate a vacant campsite.
The campground is situated on a lawn with many shade trees. Most facilities are modern. All campsites are first-come, first-served.
