Bass Lake is situated in the Sierra National Forest approximately 14 miles from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park, in California. Bass Lake is about to burst with activity March 29th as two popular local lakeside businesses, The Forks Resort open for their 72nd season and Miller’s Landing Resort open for their 38th season on Friday March 29th.

The Forks Resort and Miller’s Landing Resort are both long-time favorites on the lake where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner inside or outside on the patio enjoying the spectacular views of Bass Lake. Dogs are welcome.

“I am very excited The Forks Resort and Miller’s Landing Resort will open for the season. You’ll find friendly people and great food.  With their opening, the smell of spring and the anticipation of summer fun are here,” said Therese Williams, Public Relations Director of Visit Yosemite |Madera County.

Both offer cabins perfect for families or groups looking to stay together, a very well stocked general store to buy groceries and other supplies on site as well as boat rentals and more.

In addition to Miller’s Landing Resort and The Forks Resort, Bass Lake offers another full service resort open all year, namely The Pines Resort, complete with onsite dining at Ducey’s On the Lake, Ducey’s Bar and Grill, plus The Pines Market and Deli and The Pines Bar.

Only steps away from The Pines Resort are Bass Lake Boat Rentals and Marina Burger, both open year round.

If camping under the stars and with the trees is your style, there are plenty of camping options around the lake.  Of course, camping is not for everyone, Bass Lake offers numerous rental homes and cabins, some right on the lake front with docks.  Fall in love with Bass Lake and you may consider browsing in the window at Bass Lake’s Century 21 Ditton Realty or Bass Lake Realty. The Pines Village is where you can shop and if you are hungry, you can find a variety of restaurants.

Bass Lake has been home to two pairs of Bald Eagles for several years. One nest can be found across the Lake from the Pines Resort. The other is easily found on the North Shore across from Millers Landing.
