  1. Debbie Calafato Sanders says:

    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. 🙂

  2. Spring Cove is an awesome campground! We have camped there twice now and really enjoyed both trips. All the sites are walking distance from Rocky Point Cove, which is a day use beach/floating area with picnic tables and plenty of areas to tie up your blow up rafts or floaties. Millers landing is a nearby store, restaurant, ice cream shop and boat rental place.. would definitely recommend rentals through them. You get a discount for camping, which isn’t offered at the other boat rental place across Bass Lake.
    As for the sites, site 45 does not look like the picture on this website. There was a fire a few years back that dramatically changed the landscape of Bass Lake and the trees surrounding Spring Cove were cut down to reduce fire danger. There is little to no shade at site 45.
    46 is an awesome site and the picture doesn’t do justice.. tons of shade and flat land. We had a group that got both 45 and 46 and we only had one neighbor, which was nice.
    The second year we got sites 30 and 32.. great for groups but site 30 is overgrown with vegetation that isn’t maintained by staff. Only about 2 areas for a tent and very small with no shade but worked out for a group setting because we put a table down there for games and things. 32 is a pretty cool site even though it is right next to the road, the table and fire ring are in a good spot and theres a little trail down to the tent areas that lies next to a small creek. Very nice and relaxing.
    BEST SITES FOR GROUPS: 33&34 – all shady with some sun, practically right next to each other and lots of flat tent space.. if you want to add 32 to it and have three sites, it would be awesome because they are close together.
    48 & 47 – 48 is a smaller site but is very shady and would be perfect for the kitchen area. 47 is huge and a good tent site.. less shade.
    BEWARE SMALL SITES – 28, 29 & 31 – all three are practically right on top of each other and very small.. only can fit one large tent or two small ones.
