  • Wow, what an amazing place to just go and unwind. My son and I just came back from two amazing day's there. This is not your typical "camp ground" . The owners and more importantly staff take a lot of pride in keeping the properly top notch. The moment for me was when I observed EVERY morning employee cleaning the shower and toilet stalls. All but one were under 18 years of age. In a day of entitled youth, this was great to see. The staff was engaging and eager to help. With this kind of customer service Bass River Resort will be around for another 50 years!
  • Just got back yesterday from camping and floating there the camping lots we're more than enough room depending on how many people u brought with u didn't have any problems with staff buses do pick you up from the camp site I guess depends on what float u r on because no bus came and got our group and the only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because I think there should be be some sort of check of the river because it was extremely low in some spots this was my first time going floating so I guess I didn't know what to expect I didn't mind walking sometime 's but walking most of the river takes a toll on a bigger guy like myself but other then that I wouldn't mind coming back had a great still
  • An awesome place to camp and enjoy the outdoors with canoeing, horse back riding etc. I didn't want to leave it was so fun and the hospitality was excellent.
  • Typically I do not write reviews. But, after reading some of the bad reviews, I would like to point out some things for those who would like to have a good time. 1. This is a business, they are there to make money, while accomodating your camping and floating needs. Hot water costs money, so $.50 for a five minute hot shower isn't bad, when you need one. Floating costs approx $31 per person during the week, and $35 on the weekends. If you get a 4 man raft and only 2 people are using it, you will still be charged at the 3 person rate ( 1 less than the raft holds, for all raft sizes). This is standard across most service type industries. If you book a hotel room at $100/night based on double occupancy ($50/person) and only 1 person shows up, it STILL costs $100. 2. Cell reception is almost non-existant, but isn't that why we go? To get away from it all...... If you need to contact friends/family, use email. You can go to the outpost and connect to their wi-fi. 3. Holiday weekends are prime time (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day). If you are not looking to party it up, avoid these weekends. Floating between Memorial Day and Labor Day, with good weather, is still busy. If you are looking to relax and not be on a crowded float, do what we do..... Show up Saturday and party if you like, float Sunday, and leave Monday or Tuesday. If you are not the partying type, show up Sunday, float Monday and leave Tuesday. Sunday, the campground is pretty empty. We love it. 4. YES!!! There are cops (tree police) on these waterways during the prime season (weekends especially). They are out there looking for under age drinking, drugs, indecent exposure, etc..... so if you are planning on doing something illegal, be warned. 5. If you reserve a site in the LOUD area, you have to stop at the outpost and "check out" to receive you refund. Read the rules!!!!! 6. You are floating on a river, this is mother nature dependant. If there is a dry summer..... Low Water. Wet Summer, lots of water. The owners/staff have no control over it. 7. All prices for ALL camp sites and float trips are located on thier web site. Along with their cancelation policy, added fees, rules, etc.... READ them!!!! I have had nothing but great experiences at Bass, been going there (and other campgrounds in the area) for over 10 years now. Looking forward to my next trip there...
  • We come here every year to go floating with our friend and my parents friends. We love it here and it is very kid friendly.
