    Overview

    Overview

    Wishon Campground is located across the street from Bass Lake. The camp is shady, due to dense stands of manzanita, oak, cedar and pine, and thick undergrowth provides ample privacy. Some sites at Wishon offer lake views.

    Natural Features:

    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.

    Wishon 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.

    Recreation:

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

    Nearby hiking trails include Willow Creek (2.7 miles), Goat Mountain (2.6 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 campsite has a picnic table, stone fire pit and a pedestal grill. Drinking water and flush toilets are provided. Parking spurs are dirt but may be bumpy and difficult to access because of the interior roads.

    Services are available at the adjacent Miller's Landing Resort, including a general store, pay showers, laundry facilities and a restaurant.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Wishon Campground is located approximately 24 miles from Yosemite National Park's South Entrance.
