Sunset Magazine has referred to the Bass Lake as one of “The West’s Best Lakes.”
Bass Lake was founded in 1895 as Bass Lake Village. The village developed near the Bass Lake Reservoir that provided hydroelectricity in Central California. Today, the community is mainly used for tourism purposes.
The site is famous for:
- Hiking trails
- Warm waters
- Water sports
Bass Lake’s healthy population of largemouth bass and crappie, among others, makes it popular with anglers. During spring and summer, the site is attractive to boaters, water skiers, and wave runner enthusiasts. These activities have made the location a popular destination for tourists.
Bass Lake is located in Madera County in California. It is located inside the Sierra National Forest, 4.5 miles southeast of Yosemite Forks, about 12 miles from the southern entryway of Yosemite National Park.
