"Stunning Mountain Lake"

Nestled in the midst of the Sierra National Forest, with lofty mountains and majestic pine trees forming a stunning background, Bass Lake is a popular tourist destination throughout the year. Just a few miles away from the gateway of the Yosemite National Park, it is also a census-designated place. It is said that when the Mono Indians came to inhabit this area, it was a lovely meadow with a creek flowing through it. The lake was formed after a dam was built on the creek for electricity. Known as Crane Valley Reservoir, it lost all its fish when a lumber company polluted the lake. It was restored and filled with bass, hence its present name. Today, it has a rich population of bluegill, bass, carp, rainbow trout, crappie, Kokanee salmon and catfish. This gorgeous reservoir with its warm turquoise waters and many marinas, offers several recreational opportunities. From fishing to swimming, boating to hiking, picnicking, wakeboarding, water skiing, water scooting and camping, there is plenty to do on its shores. Its north shore features three resorts, private cabins and vacation rentals. Don't miss this spot if you are looking for a memorable, mountain lake experience.
