There are some truly infallible signs of spring, you might say some for winter this year as well: wildflowers blooming, the return of some migratory birds (if they ever left), and The Forks Resort and Miller’s Landing opening for the season on Bass Lake. The Forks Resort will open their doors on Friday, March 28, 2014; Miller’s Landing is right behind, on Friday, April 4, 2014.
Located about 20 minutes from the southern gate to Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake is a popular destination for visitors looking for a great escape to the lake, as well as guests heading to the park.
Both The Forks Resort, located along the lake’s western shore, and Miller’s Landing, located at the southern end of the lake, offer a wide arrange of amenities for guests. Spacious cabins make them perfect spots for families looking to spend some quality time together on vacation, restaurants serving delicious meals, and they both have marinas with a diverse selection of watercraft to rent.
“Competition for the best hamburger in the mountains is fast approaching,” said Judi Hussain with the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau.
“Bass Lake has everything someone needs for their trip at the water’s edge. Lodging, dining, shopping and more are all right there, so you never have to interrupt your vacation to go get supplies. You’re always at the lake, surrounded by some truly beautiful scenery.”
Lodging options at Bass Lake run the entire gamut, with camping, the cabins at The Forks and Miller’s Landing, numerous vacation rental homes and The Pines Resort, a full service property. Dining options are also versatile, with family friendly dining, a bar and grill and fine dining.
