Welcome to Bridgeport, Washington--
The Gateway to the mighty Columbia River system. In the earlier days the town was known as Westfield. In 1889 Mr. J. Covert and a group of investors purchased the entire township and renamed it for their hometown of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Due to the river rapids, river steamers could go no further. Because of this Bridgeport was the staging area for supplies. Now a quiet community of 2250, Bridgeport is still a great place to raise a family. There are 51 miles of fishing and hunting upstream from the dam and 30 miles downstream to Wells Dam. There is more park square footage per resident than any city in Washington State.
Come experience the peaceful majesty of the Columbia River as it flows past massive basalt formations. The hillsides, covered with a blend of sagebrush, evergreens, orchards and wheat fields form a kaleidoscopic backdrop.
A variety of campgrounds, boat launches, a nine-hole golf course and many other amenities are here to serve your needs.
Please use the links to explore the opportunities awaiting you. Experience the stunning vistas, crystal blue waters and 4 distinct seasons much like the fur traders enjoyed who founded the Hudson Bay Company in 1811(later known as Ft. Okanogan) at the confluence of the Columbia and Okanogan rivers. A museum now sits high above the original site and contains a wealth of artifacts reflecting this important phase of area history.
