Very pretty little park located way at the end of the town, follow the signs, Nice gentleman who is the host did not bother us and was helpful with the payment box. Quiet at night, local families in the park using play equipment and BBQ during daylight hours and a few boaters on the river. There are few stores in town so recommend to plan ahead for groceries. Wish they had WiFi of course but good place for an overnight stop. We camped at City of Bridgeport - Marina Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground was very nice and clean, but the hosts were TERRIBLE! We felt like we were being watched all the time. The park had only 6 campers out of 20 spaces and while we were there, just about everyone got yelled at for something insignificant. We left early and won't be back! The woman host, walked her dog several times per day and made sure everyone was abiding by the rules (which she has made up and not posted). We camped at City of Bridgeport - Marina Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is hidden gem: at 25 bucks a night it's a steal. The roads and sites are paved, If you are in a large RV ask for sites G, H, or I. They are all paved, back in sites but much wider than most. The older section is very nice but built for smaller campers w/o slides, so they can be tight. Most sites will get satellite TV but not all of them. All sites are paved and the lawns are very well kept. It's right on the river and a very short drive to Chief Joseph Dam and only 38 miles to the Coolie Dam. This place is also a fisherman's paradise. It's part of a municipal park but closed to the public at night time. It's quiet and the hosts are very nice. I would suggest calling for reservations to be sure they have room. We camped at City of Bridgeport - Marina Park in a Motorhome.

Nineteen bucks (as of this writing) and I get full hookups (w/e/s) and free cable? SWEET! Even better, this park will honor the Federal Golden Age Pass if you have one of those (you will only pay $15). Cash or check only. You fill out a slip and pay at a pay station. This is a beautiful park facing the Columbia River. You have to drive through a bit of a "so so" area, but when you get here, the park is beautiful! I came here on a Thursday, and there were only four spots open, one on the river, and three on the upper deck. I grabbed the river spot. The camp host said I was lucky, normally you pretty much need a reservation to get into this park. The RV spots are all pull through. There are three back in spots that right now have water only. The camp host said that the power and water haven't been installed in those spots yet. Those three spots, when they are completed, will be very wide to allow for slideouts, but all three will be on the pavement next to each other. The current existing spots are somewhat close together (but not bad, ok for slideouts) with a small bit of well maintained grass between each. The spots close to the river have a steep slope to them. I have hydraulic leveling jacks, and I don't think I got quite level from front to back. But for NINETEEN bucks, I'm not complaining. The cable isn't the greatest, the channels are all pretty snowy. But for NINETEEN bucks, you just shouldn't complain about the cable. Might have better luck with the antenna unless you have satellite. There is a small restroom with a fish cleaning station. There are also larger restrooms with showers, and those were very clean! There is a kids play area. There is also very nice "swimming hole" and it's definitely a swimming hole. Looks like an "inlet" was dug on purpose to allow water from the Columbia River to create the "swimming hole." Looks decent enough to swim in. One of the best features is the beautiful outdoor covered kitchen, which is available for rent. Lastly, there is a very nice boat ramp (no charge as of this writing). Park is nice and quiet. I told the camp host that I had come to this park because of the one previous review (on this website). I suspect the camp host preferred that this park be a secret gem. Well, now the whole world knows! The camp host said the park is open April through November. Oh, did I remember to say the price was NINETEEN dollars?

This is a delightful RV park located on the bank of the Columbia River just below the Chief Joseph Dam. Hard surfaced pull through with grass on both sides of the 35'wide spaces. 8 spaces are 55' and 12 spaces are 45'. Seniors with Golden Age Pass will pay $15 per night. Each space has a metal table and grill. There is even a small inlet cove from the Columbia River to swim if desired. We camped at City of Bridgeport - Marina Park in a Travel Trailer.
