Overview

Lupine Campground is located next to Bass Lake. Cedar Bluff Campground is adjacent to Lupine.

Lupine is quieter and set further back from the lake than Cedar Bluff, and each site offers more privacy.

Natural Features:

Huge Ponderosa pines create a majestic setting for this camp, which is situated within the Sierra National Forest on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada. The forest is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources.

The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.

Lupine Campground is located in the Bass Lake Ranger District at an elevation of 3,400 feet. Bass Lake is a very popular area known for its variety of fish, as well as the bald and golden eagles that make their home here.

Recreation:

Bass Lake offers a beach and boat ramp. Popular activities include swimming, motorized boating, canoeing, kayaking, water skiing, sailing and fishing for bass, trout, bluegill and catfish.

Nearby hiking trails include Willow Creek, Goat Mountain, Spring Cove and Way-of-the-Mono Interpretive Trail. A variety of educational programs are offered on weekends during the summer.

Facilities:

Each campsite has a picnic table, grill, campfire ring and paved parking spur. Lupine Campground provides accessible flush toilets and drinking water. Most parking spurs are large enough to accommodate boat trailers.

Nearby Attractions:

Lupine is located 24 miles from the entrance of Yosemite National Park's South Entrance.
