    Overview

    Overview

    Forks campground is located on a hillside overlooking Bass Lake. The camp is forested with cedar, ponderosa pine and oak trees and offers a few sites with limited lake views, while others are adjacent to the creek.

    Natural Features:

    Forks Campground is located in the Bass Lake Ranger District at an elevation of 3,400 feet. Bass Lake is a very popular area known for its variety of fish, as well as the bald and golden eagles that make their home here.

    The Sierra National Forest, located on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada, is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources. The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.

    Recreation:

    Bass Lake offers a beach and boat ramp. Popular activities include swimming, motorized boating, non-motorized boating, water skiing, sailing and fishing for bass, trout, bluegill and catfish.

    Goat Mountain Trail (2.6 miles) can be accessed directly from this camp. Other foot trails in the area include Willow Creek (2.7 miles), Spring Cove (2.6 miles) and Way-of-the-Mono Interpretive Trail (1 mile).

    A variety of educational programs are offered on weekends during the summer.

    Facilities:

    Each unit has a picnic table, pedestal grill, stone fire ring and paved parking spur. Forks Campground provides flush toilets (including ones that meet accessibility standards) and drinking water.

    The parking spurs here are not large enough to fit boat trailers.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Forks Campground is located approximately 24 miles from the entrance of Yosemite National Park.
