Interesting highlights: Bass Lake

Bass Lake is one of the most popular Lakes in central California. The lake was created back in 1899. It was enlarged 6 years later, and work on the present dam began in 1909. At 3500 feet in the southern Sierra Nevada mountains, the 4 mile long lake is on the North fork of Willow Creek which is a tributary of the San Joaquin River. Its' waters turn powerful electricity producing turbine engines for Pacific Gas & Electric, (PG&E) the worlds' largest non-government utility. Because of its' altitude, its not unusual for the Bass Lake area to have snow on the ground for several weeks during the winter.
