  1. Jennifer Baker says:

    Campsite 024 says it’s campsite 023 – so does that mean that image 025 is campsite 024? I sure hope so!

    • Hi Jennifer,
      Good catch! Looks like the numbering sequence is off on campsite photos 22-29. We will get it corrected so that all Forks Bass Lake campsite photos are correct.

  2. Recently announced that they’ve skimmed down the forest and cut down many trees at the campground, little to no shade potentially. Headed there this weekend, hoping site 12 still has some shade!

    • Christine says:

      Did you end up having shade? Would love to hear which campsites might still have shade after all the trees were removed. thanks!!

      • Hi Christine,
        We don’t have an update on the trees/shade situation at Forks Campground at Bass Lake. You may try calling their information phone #:559 642-3212
