If you know what to expect and have been here before, hit the BOOK IT! button for online reservations of slips. Slip reservations are taken via the web site exclusively.
Otherwise, please read the following:
Boat Slips are a hot commodity in Bass Lake, so reservations are needed. In Season, Slips are $45 per night, often with a 2 or 3 night minimum. Off season, slips are $25 per night with no minimum. Holiday prices may apply around Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day Weekends ($75 per night). 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, 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.
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 processing fees). See their website at www.madera-county.com, or call. Bring your registration and photo ID, credit card or cash and head on in .
Bass Lake Boat Slips and launching
Boat launch (ramp) use at our Marina is $10, 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 and 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 free of charge, so don’t be afraid to ask. Our staff will even jump on your boat and assist in parking, free of charge. See marina for details.
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 non-commercial 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 $1950 to $2250, depending on location. There are many perks for seasonal slip holders, such as free towing, free trailer parking, and discounts on fuel, rentals and supplies.
