Lake Bridgeport

Beautiful Lake Bridgeport’s unique shoreline and beautiful blue water makes it a perfect place to spend the day on the water. The 11,954-acre lake is located in Wise and Jack counties. Its rock bottom creates crystal blue water and is a great destination for boating and fishing. The shoreline is heavily wooded and mostly untouched by development.

TRWD owns and operates a free boat ramp located near the dam. Other privately owned marinas, docks and ramps allow public access to the lake as well.
