Bass Lake is one of my very favorite places to camp - specifically at Spring Cove campground. The lake is fairly shallow so it heats up to a very refreshing and comfortable 85 degrees during the summer. And it is one of the few lakes in California that you're still allowed to swim in. The water is clean and very inviting. The campsites at Spring Cove are very well-kept, as are the bathrooms, but there are no showers. I bring my own, or you can use the showers at the two Marinas just north and south of the campground... both are within a few miles. There are many places to hike in the area, and I have found some great swimming holes created by snow run-off as it carves into the huge boulders on the side of the mountains. The 55 degree water on some of these hiking trails can be very attractive in the hot summer weather :) Here's a link to a couple of my favorite hiking spots: http://www.waterfallswest.com/ca-devils-slide-falls.html Yosemite is only 20 miles north of Bass Lake, so many of my camping visitors do make it a day-trip when camping with me, but I've done the Yosemite thing and hiking thing many times on my travels up there, so MY favorite thing to do is spend all day floating on the lake, swimming, and reading. At the far north end, where the snow run-off feeds the lake, there is a large boulder you can climb up and slide down. The water is cold there, but it is a fun natural water slide and definitely worth a try or two :) I'm not sure why, but this lake is never over crowded. You can rent all types of boats - motorized or not - at one of the two marinas, and waterskiers and jetskiers have a great time on the underpopulated water. Campers are kind and outgoing people, and I've built some great and lasting friendships with those I've met at Bass Lake. :)
