  Read what owners are saying

*Please Note: The Bass Lake resort is currently undergoing exterior renovations, which are scheduled to be finished by the end of October 2013. During this time, owners and guests may experience noise and possibly paint odors, that will stem from construction activity taking place during the day.

Resort Overview

It has inspired the words of John Muir and the photographs of Ansel Adams. And soon, you’ll be gushing about Yosemite National Park, as well. With a visit to your resort at Bass Lake, you’ll be in position to explore this incredible bounty on a daily basis.

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Bass Lake has been called "pretty as a postcard" by the Los Angeles Times and is the closest recreational lake to the park. This means hiking Yosemite by day—where you’ll find hidden waterfalls, mind-boggling cliffs of granite and giant Sequoias—and relaxing lakeside by night.

There’s plenty to do at the lake itself—water ski, hike, fish, ride horseback, and more. Make sure you book extra time—you don’t want to miss out!

Helpful Hints
  • When planning to travel to Bass Lake during the summer months using the 13 months booking window is highly recommended as these months do fill quickly.
  • Plan a visit during April – June to make sure you can view the beautiful waterfalls at Yosemite National Park.
  • If you plan on visiting Bass Lake during the winter months please be advised that snow chains may be required to access the resort or other local attractions.
