Bridgeport State Park is a public recreation area located two miles east of Bridgeport, Washington, on the north shore of Rufus Woods Lake, the Columbia River reservoir created by the Chief Joseph Dam.[2] The state park was built through a partnership between Washington State Parks and the Army Corps of Engineers after completion of the dam in 1955.[3] The park's 25-year lease was renewed in 1990 and again in 2015.[4] The 622-acre (252 ha) park includes 7,500 feet (2,300 m) of shoreline, camping areas, four miles (6.4 km) of hiking trails, and facilities for boating, fishing, swimming, and golf.[5]
