Bass Lake Provincial Park has a boat launch that is available for use from the second Friday in May through to the third Sunday in September. The cost of using the boat launch is included in the campsite fee and seasonal permit fee. If you are not camping in the park, you must purchase a Daily Vehicle Permit to access the boat launch.
All of Bass Lake’s campgrounds, with the exception of Cedar Campground offer fully serviced comfort stations with showers and flush toilets.
During the summer months, our day-use area is available upon purchase of a valid day-use permit, summer pass, annual pass or if you have a valid camping permit. During the winter months, access to the park is available by walk-in only using a pay and park, coin only system. No alcohol is permitted in our day-use area. If you are bringing pets, they must be leashed at all times, including during our off-season and they are not permitted on the beach.
Flush toilets are located in the comfort stations found in Lakeview, Eastside and Hilltop Campgrounds. Smaller washrooms are located throughout the park.
The park has a small store that is open from the last weekend in June until Labour Day. It features items such as ice cream, chips, candy, beverages, and Ontario Parks Merchandise.
Bass Lake has three picnic shelters available for reservation from the Friday of the Victoria Day weekend until Labour Day. After Labour Day the picnic shelters are available on a first-come first-served basis only. We have one large picnic shelter that will accommodate up to 100 people and two smaller shelters that will accommodate up to 45 people each. Each shelter comes with the use of a charcoal barbeque and has enough picnic tables to accommodate maximum capacity. Alcohol is not permitted in our day-use area and this includes our picnic shelters. Parking is available within close proximity to each shelter and there are washrooms and drinking water taps nearby.
Reservations can be made online or by phone, or by calling the park directly at (705) 326-7054.
