Fantastic local attraction, the bridge itself is neat to see (beautiful in the winter as well) and drive across, but there is also a small picnic area and access to the river. Fun place to hang out and swim on a hot day!
It's 5 minutes off At 27 in New Portland. Follow the signs, turn right and park in the abandoned field. There's a treeline and a sand/rock beach with an awesome view of the bridge. Going at sunset is highly recommended as is bug spray because there is a lot. There is one picnic table, but I think it's a carry in/carry out park. Further upriver are some good climbing rocks that go into river.
