camping in the area
About that...there are campgrounds on the western shore of Bass Lake. There is a nice quiet campground on a little creek up in the mountains east of Bass Lake off Central Camp road called Gaggs Campground. Gaggs has spots and tables but not sure about water or bathrooms. Miami trails area has spots and dirtroad access to Yosemite. Whiskey Creek. Shaver. Huntington. I think there are still cabins for rent at Jones Store...maybe. Mammoth Pools. Now I am just rambling....tons of places...spectacular places.
Hope this helps...Matt
