Bridgeport California in Mono County in the High Sierras

Located in California’s Eastern Sierra, historic Bridgeport Valley has changed little since cattlemen and miners discovered its grassy pastures in the 1850’s. Surrounded by vast National Forest lands, the Bridgeport region is an unspoiled recreational playground with pristine lakes, rivers, streams and hot springs.

Some say that area which now constitutes Mono County, California, was, prior to the coming of the white man, a spiritually sacred place to the Paiute Indians. "Mono" in Paiute means "beautiful", which aptly describes this highly scenic area. Its topography is generally rugged, particularly along its northern sector where some of the Sierra Nevada peaks reach to over 12,000 feet. Precipitous canyons, crags, perennial snowflakes, and hot springs are interspersed with a myriad of clear mountain streams and lakes. Wide valleys support intensive ranching, as well as providing a pastoral foreground to the rugged and scenic Sierra.

The main attraction of the Bridgeport area is the western flavor. Local architecture bears the signature of the pioneers who settled here over a hundred years ago. The vast rangelands allow one to get into wide open spaces, just as in the "old days." Events such as the Bridgeport Rodeos allow one to experience life in the old west. Recreation in the area includes fishing for huge Trout, hiking to pristine high alpine settings, biking, climbing and back country skiing.
