One of the best campgrounds I have stayed at. Ball fields, tennis and basketball courts. The restrooms that are kept in very clean condition. Swimming and boating right there on the Columbia River. Walmart up on top of the hill 6 miles in Chelan. They have a dump station here also. Great Place for family and kids…
I am surprised to find how often we camp in the snowy winter months, empty campgrounds are a plus this time of year! Come summer you won't be able to get a reservation in this park, but in January it was wide open! We have stayed here for many years to enjoy the Chelan WinterFest Festival in January. The park is within walking distance of town and is perfect for the festival weekend. You may notice the pictures are of different trucks and campers as we have visited this park throughout the years! We have only stayed in this park once in the summer months, and that was for a skydiving visit. Good basic RV park style camping.
We arrived here on a Sunday night in May and the place was empty…… only one other camper and it was really far away. It is very remote, no services around and a little odd to get to, in that you have to wind past a lakeside"resort" with a little store and campsites that didn't look really very nice, yet there were people everywhere, it looked totally booked. Then you cross over the line into the campground where a$30 annual pass is required, yet the per night cost is$0 as of 2017, and there was nobody around! The campground is like a big open parking area with a boat launch and toilets and then there is also a little more dispersed sites where random fire pits have been built. We had our choice of sites so we picked one that sat away from others and was right above the water making the launch of the kayaks pretty easy.
Great day park, not so great for camping. We stayed in spot 5 in loop 1, or the woods campground. There was a capped pipe that appeared to be waste water dump but was not. When we asked the park attendants why it wasn’t labeled or locked they had no answers. We ended up with an ant infestation in our camper and we camp very clean. It’s very barren and hot. The good was the camp was quiet and the sandy swim beach was nice, but only during the week. It was packed on the weekend.
I have stayed at both. Both are excellent! The resort is clean, comfortable, shaded green grass, and the mechanical hook ups for RV’s are in good working order. Plenty of amenities to make your extended stay enjoyable.
The state park pads are decent. Fire ring and picnic table are provided at no extra cost. Most of the pads are very level. Grass is green, bathrooms clean, and the kids run wild. Close enough to the water to have easy access. There are RV spots in the back that are new. I haven’t stayed there yet, but I’ve driven through. It’s far enough from the main campground to be a lot more relaxed, and more suited for people that do not enjoy the kids running rampant.
Two things that neither place have any control over: wind and mosquitoes. The wind will blow hard at night. It doesn’t matter if it was dead calm when you went to sleep at 2am. Pick up and secure anything that will blow away or be damaged by high wind.
When check out time comes around, the day use area has lots of parking to finish the day in the water.
The park is nice, but really showing its age. The grass is dead, the playground leaves something to be desired from my kids, but it was clean and cheap. The 30 amp plug I plugged into was kind of sketchy. The terminals were melted pretty bad. I wish I had taken the time to hook up the water filter.
Bridgeport State Park is on the upper reaches of the Columbia River across from the town of Bridgeport. In the summer, it can be hot, and crowded with campers enjoying the river: boating, fishing, swimming, and just relaxing. It's great in the off season; in fact, March 28 there were only two other units in the campground!
Nice clean well maintained park with lots of access to the water. Kinda pricey for full hookup. We booked late in the year so we had to move twice within a 5 day stay. An issue came up that was a real bummer… we needed to move into a site that had a rental trailer on it, and it took a long time for that to get picked up. If you manage to get a site with beach access, do imagine it will be yours. We had a couple of great beach access sites, but both times, younger campers pretty much took over the beach making it uncomfortable to even use.
Well besides the fact that the camping is literally site on top of site. Unless you like camping looking down on your neighbors camp an arms reach away. ( insert eye roll ) and the one guy ranger who “didn’t have time to talk to us” simply about switching sites because we booked online. And was sandwiched in between two large family sites. Anyways we ended up being helped by a nice lady ranger who made time and even checked on us later to see if we were all good. After changing sites. The campground was pretty empty btw and wasn’t a big deal to switch. Spending the day on this lake was Amazing!!! Warm water they had paddle boards and kayaks to rent by phone so that was a plus. So three stars for the lake. Two for the nice ranger and one for camp site layout. Flushing toilets and pay showers available but Should be expected for $40 a night.
Great campground with easy access to the woods and a beautiful lake with views and fishing. Paved road, clean drinking water, vaulted toilets, locking dumpsters for trash, no motorized boats allowed. Great for families that enjoy camping, great lake for fishing and kayaking, great spot for birding. There are pull through spots for trailers in the upper part of the campground and back in spots with lake views and access. Walk in and group sites are much more private.
