Welcome to Bridgeport California
A Great Place to Live and a Fantastic Vacation Destination
| Once known
as "Big Meadows" for its fertile and open grazing land, Bridgeport
California today is the hub of a year round vacation paradise. It's historical,
recreational, beautiful and affordable. Enjoy a great meal at the fine
community restaurants. The local merchants provide a wide variety of services
and really appreciate your patronage. Wi-Fi is available from the Mono County Library and many merchants offering lodging or dining.
Surrounded by vast National Forest lands, this section of Mono County
is an unspoiled recreational playground with pristine lakes, rivers, streams
and hot springs. Naturally, there's great fishing, hunting, hiking, cross
country skiing, snowmobile trails and horseback adventures.
Perhaps, best of all, this natural playground 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.
The Bridgeport Trout Tournament on June 21 is a family focused event that includes a
goody bag, event merchandise,
quality trophies, prizes and an indoor awards ceremony that
includes a real dinner with all the trimmings. The Kid’s
division is always our main focus and we bring each and
every child to the stage, present them with a trophy or
certificate and submit a group photo to statewide
If you have the opportunity to visit during July, join the community and it's many annual visitors for the Old Fashioned Fourth of July activities. Enjoy the "All American Small Town Experience". It's for kids of all ages! Bring your camera.
