Gold Country California Visitor Information

Bass Lake

Named by Sunset Magazine as one of “The West’s Best Lakes”, Bass Lake is renowned for excellent fishing. Wakeboarders flock to Bass Lake throughout the spring and summer as do boaters, jetski enthusiasts and more.

Off the water, amazing hiking trails offer beautiful views of Bass Lake and the surrounding Sierra National Forest. For those who prefer to remain closer to civilization, there is shopping at the Pines Village and dining at excellent restaurants throughout. Ducey’s on the Lake, The Forks Resort, Miller’s Landing and Casa Velasco all offer an array of cuisines to satisfy any craving.

Bass Lake is also a popular event center. Numerous events attract people year round. One of the most popular is the annual July 4 fireworks display. Few images can top the scene of brilliant fireworks reflected back in the waters of Bass Lake as thousands of people gather on and off the water for the spectacle. Other popular events include weekly farmer’s markets in the summer, arts and craft fairs throughout the year, the CIE Wakeboarding Competition, the Bass Lake Fishing Derby and many more.

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!


Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
