Sorry, but due to the drought, 2022 Boat Slips are not available at this time. We do not have a wait list. Plan on pulling your boat in and out every evening, or leave it at home and rent a boat. Our ramp is open 9-7 everyday, and is $20 each way ($40 round trip). The dam ramp is open 24 hours, and is $5. WARNING: Any craft left in any slip without permission (5 minutes or 5 hours or 5 days) will be locked up with a $500 per day fine (Cash Only, please take this warning serious). Please do not call regarding a boat slip for this year. Many of our seasonal slip-holders do not have slips as well. We will update the possibility of a slip in late May, 2022.
We are here for you…. with boat slips, launch ramp, boat rentals, restrooms and supplies at our door. With a slip rental we offer dock help parking if you desire. Slip reservations are booked via the web site you are on (exclusively). The office does not handle slip reservations.
If you know what to expect and have been here before, hit the BOOK IT! button for online reservations of slips. NO RENTAL CRAFT BUT OURS ARE ALLOWED. PROOF OF BOAT REGISTRATION IN YOUR NAME IS REQUIRED.
Otherwise, please read the following:
BoatSlips are a hot commodity in Bass Lake, so reservations are needed. Permits are required for boat parking in our Marina, so please check-in before launching. We are the main supply of boat parking for The Pines Resort, Ducey’s, World Mark (The Club at Bass Lake), and most of the rental houses from Century 21, Sierra Vacation Rentals, Bass Lake Realty, VRBO and AirBnB. We are on the North Shore of the lake, where almost all rental houses are located. We are the only full service Marina on Bass Lake, right in the center of town.
You can register and permit your boat here for Madera County Sheriff Department (no need to go to the Sheriff Tower anymore, but permits are required to use Bass Lake for all boats). Current fees for Bass Lake Sheriff Permit are $32 for 50hp and under, $50 for 51-250 hp and all jet ski, and $63 for all boats above 250 hp (plus $3 processing fee). See their website at www.madera-county.com, or call. Bring your registration or a cell phone picture of the CF#’s, photo ID, credit card or cash and head on in .
Bass Lake Boat Slips and launching
Boat launch (ramp) use at our Marina is $20 each use, or there is a free launch ramp at the dam. We allow one boat or personal watercraft per slip, not more than 25’ in length. Registration in your name or proof of insurance are required to park in our Marina (no loaners or other rentals please). We recommend you bumper your boat with a minimum of three bumpers per side and use marine nylon rope to tie your craft. Bass Lake can get rough with other boat wakes, so bring all protective gear or go to Wal-Mart and buy more. We also sell bumpers, rope and buoys should you forget to bring them, or if one was left at your last lake adventure (lol). We will gladly help launch or tie-up free of charge, so don’t be afraid to ask. Our staff will even jump on your boat and assist in parking. While we will do everything possible to protect your boat, know that properly securing your boat, proper insurance, using plenty of buoys, removing valuables, wearing shoes on the dock and informing any and all guests of the risks will minimize damage and/or injury. See marina contract for details upon sign-in.
Slip reservations are taken via our website exclusively. Once you make a slip reservation there are no refunds, so please verify your vacation and boat operation before you book your slip.
We also rent seasonal slips (for personal use only). Our season is usually from April to September, and slips are licensed and placed according to size, seniority and availability. Prices are currently $2495 to $2995, depending on location. There are many perks for seasonal slip holders, such as free towing, discounts on fuel, rentals and supplies. Send an email for requests regarding seasonal slips.
