Bridgeport Dam is a flood control dam located on Jacobs Creek. The area offers fishing, hunting, and nature study opportunities. The 70 acre lake, a continuation of the wetlands along Brush Run & Jacobs Creek, includes a boat launch. The fishery is managed by the Pennsylvania Fish Commission. Carp, along with small white crappies and black crappies are generally abundant in Bridgeport Dam.

At times of migration, birding enthusiasts can watch for waterfowl, shorebirds, and gulls. The summer breeding season may bring herons, kingfisher, warblers, flycatchers, and more.


No rest room facilities are available.
