You can appreciate some of the natural and historic points of interest on our 2.8 km trail, which winds its way through a variety of habitats. Along the way uncover the park’s history with the Rowe Homestead, a working farm for more than 100 years, the effects of glaciers from 10,000 years ago and the importance of the next generation of flora and fauna. You will also find that the first half kilometre of trail, which begins at our beach parking lot, has been paved making it accessible for everyon. We have trail guides available at our Park Registration Building.
Shallow, clear water makes Bass Lake perfect for swimming.
Bass Lake Provincial Park offers a small program for outdoor winter enthusiasts. From our fall closing date (fourth Sunday in September) through to our spring operating season in May, visitors can access the park by walking in, using a pay and park coin-only system, to enjoy our 4.0 km network of groomed cross-country ski trails. We also groom a hiking trail for those that prefer to walk or snowshoe instead of ski.
