Follow Waterview Trail and learn how Bass Lake park, a farm for more than 100 years, was transformed to a recreational area. Just west of Orillia - close to historic Huronia - it is a popular spot for swimming, hiking, fishing and boating. Its fields and trails are good for skiing and snowshoeing in winter.

  • Older provincial park. Not wide roads for motor homes to navigate. Great for smaller trailers. Lake is spring fed and shallow. Great beach for kids. 
  • great place to camp very clean & quiet have gone there for 3 years know never disappointed campsites are a good size and kept clean most have some or good shade and washrooms are clean 
  • My husband and I chose to go to this park on Ontario Parks free day use day. We've been to quite a few Provincial Parks in our area and decided to travel a little farther north. This is a great park f...  more »
  • I love this park. We camp here every year for a week. Lots of walking trails. Try not to get a site too close to the road or you hear alot of traffic. The beach is really nice and there is lots of room. Orillia is very close so there's lots to see.
  • Small lake, weekend seems busy but eveyone left by Sunday afternoon. The lake is clean, small beach. There is one comfort station for the whole park but the lines for the showers were short, even though the park was busy. The hike back to the camp sites is steep! Only complaint was that the swimming area was too small, other parks had much deeper areas for swimmers with the risk of boats around.
  • Nice small provincial park (less than 200 campsites, beautiful sand beach which is groomed daily, shallow water with sand bottom, quite lake, lots of shade near the water.
  • Water was nice and clean. Drinking water readily available. Lots of trees. Can be crowded. Comfort stations were clean.
  • While this Lake is quite lovely, renters beware of the private cottage rentals in the area. Always use the registered third party agencies that guarantee your payment process and refunds. We were scammed more than once in this area. Renters Beware!
