Forks Campground is on the west shore of Bass Lake in the Sierra National Forest. Four-mile-long Bass Lake is a popular mountain recreation destination, offering fishing, boating, waterskiing, and hiking. Visitors to Forks Campground have limited views of the lake but can easily walk to its shore and beach for swimming and relaxing in the mountain air.
Forks Campground has 27 campsites in a towering pine forest. Recent bark beetle infestations have killed some of the trees. Dead trees around the campground were removed in the spring 2016.
Three sites in Forks Campground are designated for tents-only; the rest can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. A 2-night minimum stay is required on weekends and 3 nights on holiday weekends.
