Located on a hillside overlooking Bass Lake, Forks Campground has huge Ponderosa Pines that create a majestic setting for a fantastic camping experience. The camp lies at an elevation of 3,400 feet and offers a few sites with limited lake views, while others are adjacent to the creek. 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.
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 lake is within walking distance where you can enjoy the beach, fishing, water sking and swimming. The Forks is located 24 miles from the entrance of Yosemite and in the Sierra National Forest.
