The year after we moved back to CA we took advantage of one of those free weekend, come see and buy things. Took our trailer up to Bass Lake and ended up buying into the campground. NOt a bad deal at the time although they never were able to fulfill everything that we bought into. Plus after 15 years we had a choice of staying as lifetime members or getting our money back. We chose to get our money back. But we still love that area. And we try to go up every year - especially at this time of the year. These days we stay at a lovely place on HIghway 41 just outside of Fish Camp called the Narrow Gauge Inn (www.narrowgaugeinn.com). They have the most beautiful gardens there - and again, wonderful (but expensive) food at their restuarant.
