Bass Lake is a family tradition. My family started going to Bass Lake with Boy Scout Troop 457 out of
South Gate, California in the 60's. My dad was the troop leader, my two older brothers Paul and Alan
and I were all in the Boy Scouts. My mom, little sister Karen and younger brother Mark also went along.
This was their yearly vacation. I'm sure it was more of a working vacation for my mom. We camped there
every summer for years. I remember watching the planes take off and land at the Wishon Airport that was
at the end of the lake where we camped. "Don't ever go over there," we were told over and over.
Yeah right, you might as well have given us a ride over there, we were always over there! That old airstrip
is now long gone. As we got older and were out of scouting, my younger brother Mark was now fulfilling
his scouting duties and our dad was still troop leader. Paul, Alan and I were still going along and bringing
our girlfriends with us. The girls would room together in one tent, the boys in another.
Well, we are still going. These same girls are now our wives.
Sue and I have been bringing our boys, Jeff and Josh since they were babies. We have only missed a couple
of years since we started going. We no longer camp, we prefer to rent one of the beautiful homes along the
lake. We rent party boats, jet skis and ski boats from Bass Lake Water Sports and Marina, special thanks
to Tom for a spectacular view from his dock every morning as my brothers and I enjoy the sun coming up with
our morning coffee. Tom always takes time out from his busy morning to visit and bring us up to speed on
current events at the lake.
Well, there you have it, 40 years of Bass Lake tradition.
We wouldn't have it any other way.
