This unique mountain resort - conveniently located just 17 miles from the Southern gate of Yosemite National Park and just 56 miles north from Fresno - offers lakefront lodging, dining and special events with spectacular views of Bass Lake and year round recreational activities.
We have long been considered the hidden jewel of the Sierra National Forest. Our guests enjoy a warm, relaxed and memorable experience, great food and personalized service from staff that understands the importance of attention to detail.
The natural beauty of Bass Lake has attracted Hollywood's directors and we were named one of the 10 Great Places to Lodge yourself in a movie by USA Today. If you have seen how John Candy taught his son how (not) to water ski in the Great Outdoors, you have seen Bass Lake! Our beautiful location and unique accommodations makes us well known as Central California’s premier lake front destination resort and was featured on many movies and commercials.
Whether you’re building family memories, looking for a romantic getaway or having a corporate meeting at our Yosemite area resort, The Pines Resort at Bass Lake will provide a magnificent experience. It truly is a place of unique and natural beauty - - No wonder we have been voted one of the top ten best lodges in the United States.
