You’ll never run out of things to do

Come experience one of the most stunning parts of California, the High Sierra. Outdoorsy Yosemite sits in the scenic western foothills

Boating, paddling, etc.

Bring your own boat, kayak, or paddle board, or rent one. Go fishing for dinner. Or, jump in for a swim — the water warms up nicely in the summer, unlike other mountain lakes.


The fish are biting. Cast your line for the bass that gave the lake its name. Or, hook a catfish, rainbow trout, or kokanee salmon. You can get a fishing license at the local grocery store.


The Bass Lake area is a hiker’s paradise. Most trails are dog-friendly, and many have waterfalls and scenic views of the lake. Read about a few of the closest hiking trails.

Yosemite National Park

Bass Lake is just 18 miles away from the park’s south entrance. There you’ll find a giant sequoia grove, a history center, horseback riding tours, and much more.


Don’t forget to pack your clubs. Two 9-hole golf courses, River Creek and Yosemite Lakes Park, are a short drive away from the campground.

Mountain biking

From easy to extremely difficult, the nearby mountain biking trails will keep you on the move. If e-bikes are your thing, there are trails for that, too.

Walk to the lake

We’re about a 10-minute walk to the eastern shores of Bass Lake.

A lake is born

Bass Lake fills what was once known as Crane Valley, a meadow that stretched between the surrounding hills and peaks. A dam first constructed in 1901 created the lake, built to provide hydroelectric power for the region. Which it still does today.

Yosemite, our famous neighbor

Designated in 1890, Yosemite became the third National Park in the United States. It covers nearly 748,000 acres. Hikers, rock climbers, waterfall admirers, photographers, and millions of others visit every year.
