Petite Retreats at Bay Landing Campground Bridgeport, TX

Whether you want to camp in a cabin, RV, a Petite Retreat, or a tent, Bay Landing on Lake Bridgeport has it all. We chose to camp in one of the Petite Retreats at Bay Landing Campground Bridgeport, TX. I was given a weekend rental in exchange for writing about our fun experience. All opinions are all mine.

Our weekend was filled with outdoor activities at Bay Landing on Bridgeport Lake in Texas. Bay Landing happens to be about 45 minutes west of where we live. A perfect spot for our kids to have fun away from home. When I got the word that I could choose a Petite Retreat anywhere they had one available, I decided on Bay Landing simply because it was the best choice for a weekend getaway close to home. I invite Chastity and her son, Carson, to come along.

Brody and I arrived right at 4 pm on Friday and set up our area. I stocked the frig with food, got the dogs settled in, figured out where everyone was going to sleep, and Brody – well, look at the below photo. Between two trees is his place for the weekend!

Chili Cook-off at Bay Landing Campground

Before we left, I researched Bay Landing and found out they were having a chili cook-off while we were going to be there. I’d never entered one before and decided to give it a shot. Though I didn’t win, as you can see from the empty pot below, my chili was well-liked. It was fun and exciting, watching everyone vote on their favorites.

Outdoor Activities at Bay Landing Campgrounds

In the back of our Petite Retreat is the playground. Just far enough to watch the kids from the back deck and not too close for some relaxation. Chastity couldn’t resist playing with the boys on the merry-go-round. Close by to the right is an 18-hole mini-golf course in which we played more than once.

Brody and Carson will tell you that fishing for crawfish or crawdads is much more fun than actually fishing for fish. They had such a great time playing in the lake that we let them do it both days.

What in the world is better than watching your kids play outdoors and having fun – NOTHING. It’s magical.

Deer watching at Bay Landing Campgrounds

We were out taking a short hike at dusk when we heard a lady hollering out into the woods. She told us if we were quiet enough, deer would come out and graze and not leave if they saw us. Do you think the boys were quiet? That’s a big NO. But Chastity captured this first set of deer before the boys yelled with excitement and scared them back into the woods.

While there were plenty of activities to do and events going on, we brought along the boys’ archery equipment to practice hitting the target. Archery is a great sport, and the boys want to be big archery shooters. We set up the target not too far from the Petite Retreat cabin, as you can see. Chastity was brave for sure, taking this photo!
