One of the most popular recreational lakes in the Sierra Nevada, mainly due to it's proximity to Yosemite National Park. Bass Lake is a great alternative to camping inside Yosemite Valley. Lotsa boating, fishing, skiing & numerous campgrounds around this lake. For more seclusion try camping in hidden redwood grove away from the lake, but still close by. Long ago Bass Lake was formerly known as Crane Valley Reservoir.
