Things to do at Bass Lake: Bass Lake presents opportunities for peace and serenity complete with beautiful views, rolling waves, colorful sunrises, and captivating sunsets to recreational choices of all kinds. Activities you can enjoy on our 1400 acre all sports lake include swimming and boating, water skiing and wake boarding, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing. Bicycle 8.1 miles around the lake. Or bring your golf cart! Our lake's annual showcase event is the Bass Lake Festival, which is held each year during the last weekend in July (27th-29th).
This property in on TRUE lake frontage. There is no road to cross with your kids, coolers and boating supplies. More than 1/2 of the lake properties on Bass Lake are not true frontage properties - they have easement access across either County Road 210 or State Road 10. (You should ask owners of other listings if it is not evident in their photos.)
Bass Lake is an all-sports lake, no motor size restriction for your ski or wake boat, pontoon, jet skis or other power toys. No clockwise traffic pattern restriction. This is a sandy bottom lake. The shoreline is a safe, shallow depth for kids to play or to stay cool in your lounge chair, but depth at pier dock is excellent for watercraft; it's hard to find best of both on most lakes! You should also ask this question to the owners on other lakes you are considering.
The property is only 1/4 mile from Bass Lake Marina boat launch (hoist), MiniMart gas and convenience store, Fingerhut Bakery and DD’s bait and tackle shop. FREE public launch 1/2 mile away. Just 10 minutes from 18 holes at Chesapeake Run (North Judson) or Mystic Hills (Culver) public courses, and a half hour for 36 at Swan Lake (Plymouth). Just 1 mile from Melody Drive In Theater (which also hosts drive in a Christian service Sundays at 8am!). Dine or get a giant ice cream cone on the lake at Sportyz Pub, karaoke on Saturday night at Bass Lake Pub and Ristorante or get delivery of authentic Chicago style pizza from Gina Maries!
