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.


Launch a canoe or kayak onto Bass Lake from several places along the shore or from an available dock. Canoe, kayak, and stand-up paddle board rentals are available at the park store.

Discovery Program

Join Discovery staff at an Exploration Station during the months of July and August. Bring along your Discovery Activity Book (or pick one up at the Exploration Station), 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! 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. Enjoy our 4 km ungroomed trail network which, along with all Park roads, are available in winter for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hiking or (on-leash) dog walking.
