Bass Lake

Bass Lake Provincial Park


Part of our hiking trail is paved and bicycle friendly. Visitors are also welcome to bike on park roads.


The park has a boat launch that can accommodate a boat up to 20 feet. There are also docks for temporary docking.


Canoe rentals are available at the park store.

Discovery Program

Join park staff for a Discovery Drop-in during the months of July & August. Bring along your Discovery Activity Book (or pick one up at the Drop-in), and use the equipment and materials provided to explore the park, observe plants and animals, and discover the wonders of nature. Be sure to share your observations with park staff, take the Discovery Ranger Pledge and receive your very own Discover Ranger Button! For more information keep an eye out for weekly calendar of events posted throughout the park.


Sportfishing for bass is good and the season starts on the last Saturday of June each year.


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 everyone.


Shallow, clear water makes Bass Lake perfect for swimming.

Winter Activities

Bass Lake Provincial Park offers a small program for outdoor winter enthusiasts. From our fall closing date (Tuesday after Thanksgiving) through to our spring operating season in May, visitors can access the park by walking in, using a pay and park coin-only system. Enjoy our 4 km trail network which, along with all Park roads, are available in winter for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hiking or (on-leash) dog walking.
