Lake Bridgeport Fishing Excursion!
Summer Adventures!

 

Summer is finally here and Bridgeport abounds with outdoor recreation opportunities for the family!

 

Stock your coolers and picnic baskets at our new Brookshire’s Grocery Store  for a weekend in Northwest Park @ Endeavor Bridgeport.  Experience 300 acres and 25 miles of off-road, rock-crawling trails through oak thickets, over rocky ridges, and down rugged ravines. The park opens every Saturday and Sunday with overnight camping on the second weekend. Your day isn’t complete without rolling to Rock City Burger Company for an artisan burger with fried pickles or homemade chips.


If you love water recreation, bring your kayaks and paddle under the tree canopy on the West Fork Trinity River. Bridgeport Falls Paddling Trail is an adventure with Mother Nature so bring your camera for great shots of your family and the wildlife!


After your outdoor adventure take a spin through the 50’s at Yesterday’s Texas surrounded by cool memorabilia. Start off with Ba-ba-loo Cheddar Fries then dive into the “Gunsmoke” Ribeye but save room for the famous, skillet-sizzling, Blue Ribbon Apple Pie A la Mode!!


Lodging is available at Bridgeport Suites, Comfort Suites, Greystone Inn or La Quinta Inn & Suites!
