Remember to bring the bathing suit to Bass Lake at Yosemite. A short drive to these magnificent falls.
It’s rarely too hot or too cold here, the fishing is great, golfing is just around the corner, and Yosemite National Park is at your doorstep. That’s what you can expect when you set your sights on Bass Lake at Yosemite, an RV Resort, in the foothills of the western slope of California’s High Sierra.
During spring, summer, and fall, Bass Lake at Yosemite attracts water sports enthusiasts. Anglers and water skiers can bring their own boats or rent one at the nearby marina to explore the lake, which stretches more than 6 miles into the valley behind the dam. If you’re after a fish dinner, you might cast your line for the bass that gave the lake its name ( a fourteen pound lunker was caught here), or catfish, crappie, rainbow trout or kokanee salmon. If you prefer simply to enjoy the scenery, rent a party barge.
At 3,500 feet, Bass Lake at Yosemite is above the heat of California’s Central Valley and low enough to enjoy four seasons without the heavy snowfall found in the higher mountains. In spring the oak trees come alive with green leaves that turn to crimson and gold as autumn approaches.
