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!
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.

I rent out my WorldMark timeshare -- 120+ resort locations all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and England.
My specialty is last-minute short-stay accommodations, but please be smart about your expectations: if it's less than a month before any kind of holiday, concert, or event, it's likely already booked up. Accommodations in Indio and Palms Springs sell out within an HOUR of Coachella tickets going on sale* but it's the same two weekends every year, so be smart about it. Holidays and summer weekends also book up far in advance.
You can book as far as 13 months out.
*If you book more than 10 months out, there is a 7-night minimum.
If you want to book a Friday or a Saturday, there is a three-night minimum -- unless you are booking within 48 hours of check-in (4pm)
I have units that can accommodate as many as eight people. Have more than eight? You can rent more that one unit! The Maximum Occupancy listed on the listing is as true as gravity and cannot be altered with because the Fire Marshal said so. Respect the Fire Marshal's wisdom.
Almost all units have a complete kitchen. In addition to full-size appliances, you'll find plates, glasses, silverware, and other kitchen items. All linens, including towels, are included. You have access to all resort amenities -- that means the pool, the hot tub, the gym, free parking, etc.
Sadly, the resorts do not allow pets.
Wifi is $4.95/day or $15.95/stay. This is 100% a resort fee that I have 0% control over.
This is a timeshare. Someone at the resort might (but probably won't) try to talk you into buying a timeshare. They'll even give you a present if you say yes! Saying yes means dealing with them for the next two hours, and that's *not* why you went on vacation. BE SMART - SAY NO - GO ENJOY YOUR VACATION! :)
We've had too many bad experiences with guests from Orange County, California. If you are a current or former resident of Orange County and would like to rent from us, kindly be kind in your messages; we'll get the hint that you're a decent person and will welcome you with open arms.
