Crane Valley Group Campground is located adjacent to Bass Lake and can accommodate up to 7 groups with tents and RVs. The facility is shaded by a dense forest of oak, cedar and pine trees, and although none of the sites offer direct views of the lake, the campground offers convenient access to the many recreational activities and attractions in the area. This group campground has 7 sites that can accommodate between 12 to 30 people each. Each site has grills, fire rings and tables. Portable toilets are provided, but campers must bring drinking water.

Activities on Bass Lake include motorized and non-motorized boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, sailing and water skiing. California Land Management sponsors a variety of interpretive programs throughout the summer at several locations in the Bass Lake area.
