Bass Lake Campsite

Overview

There are many campsites on the Munising and Rapid River/Manistique Ranger Districts of the Hiawatha National Forest. Many are located on inland lakes and are in a rustic forest environment with few to no amenities. The rustic environment offers a wonderfully serene and peaceful setting for your next camping experience. All of these sites are nestled in hardwood trees and pines. All of them are on small inland lakes, which offer a wide variety of fishing opportunities.

Recreation

Visitors will be able to enjoy swimming, berry picking, and fishing at these dispersed campsites. Licenses are required for fishing in Michigan waters.

Swimming is considered poor at the Bass Lake campsite. 

However, Bass Lake hosts a great fishery of northern pike, largemouth and smallmouth bass and bluegills. There is a developed boat launch located on the eastern shore of Bass Lake, approximately four miles away from the campsite. There is no back-in boat access at the campsite.
