    Default Bass Lake questions

    I'm thinking about heading up there with the boat from 7/18 to 7/21. I have never been but I'm going for Dual-sport ride so we thought bring the boat if it's worth it. Ride for 2 days and boat for two days. Wives and kids will boat for 4 days.

    What are the crowds like on the water?

    Are there beaches or areas to beach your boat for day use?

    Suggestions of places to eat/drink, stay and launch at? Condo, hotels ect.

    Places to stay away from? Hear the Pines is not all it's cracked up to be.

    I live in Orange County and will need to get my boat from storage in Needles and then back after the trip. We are talking about 1300 miles of driving/towing. It is worth it?

    Thanks for any info.

    depending on whether you're tenting it, or want full RV hookups or just happy having a camper/rv without hookups depends on where you want to be. My family has been going to Spring Cove campground for over 50 years and we love it because it's a place you can anchor the boat and leave it in the water the whole time and are camping only a few hundred yards away. A great place we always go is by the falls in a cove past the Pine where there are natural waterslides made by the waterfalls. Another good place is past the buoys toward the main dam, off to the left farther back is a nice sandy beach area. If you want to waterski, I suggest getting up and doing it before about 10-11am a all the wakeboarders and traffic shows up then. Depending on the weekend, it can be busy but overall, it's my favorite lake in cali. The pines is touristy and the old bakery doesn't make the great bread it used to. Miller's Landing has good ice cream and just to the north of Spring Cove there is a market with a great little restaurant, (the forks I think). Overall, I highly recommend you hitting bass lake up!

    it may only be like 300 feet...but in 30 years of going, neither mine nor my dad's or any of our family's boats have been tampered with or stolen. for the most part, spring cove is still old school and most people that have been goin to the lake for years stay there.
