Bass' has a little bit of everything and lives up to it's name as a "resort." Rafts, canoes, fully-furnished cabins (with satellite TV!), campgrounds, horses, a mess hall, a general goods store, and probably more that I didn't even see. Bass' certainly caters to your preference of camping and floating. When (not if) I go back to Steelville, I'll probably... More

We have a huge group that floats 2-3 times a year. The 3rd trip to this outfitter was THE LAST STRAW. Checkin people were nice. The after the float buffet is horrible, cold overcooked gross! The staff act as if they would rather fall over dead than assist you with anything and God forbid there is any type of emergency.... More

When I was younger we did the canoe and camping here, and the Bass boys were always nice and accommodating, now that I ma older, the last five or six times I have stayed with the OTA, doing trail building. Now the Bass Boys are men, and their staff is still nice and accommodating. I love that they let us... More

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend with our 2 kids. The resort was very clean and the staff was very friendly and efficient. The resort is huge-horses, floating, cabins, tent/rv sites, pool, and play ground. There was decent access to the river with rock bars. Good for smaller kids as it wasn't too deep. We floated on Saturday, so... More

I have never wrote a review before, and I feel that people should really know what they are getting before they go and especially if you have never been here before like us. First they miss led us when I made reservations, they told us if was $11.65 a night for a tent camp site, when we got there is... More

We have stayed ad Bass River Resort and everything about this resort is done right. They have perfected the entire floating experience of all the resorts in the area.

Cabin - We rented Hickory Hollow Cabin with two other families (a total of 13 people) and it was perfect! Beautiful and open with 4 bedrooms with doors, an open loft with two beds and a basement with three fold out beds. Like others have said, nothing is provided, you have to bring everything with you. Extremely clean and good... More

I stayed here through a full very hot weekend. My group loves to "rough it" and tent camp. It was so hot and our water/electric hookup tent site didn't have a single bit of shade. We figured, oh well, we can just hang out in the pool and relax. Nope! The pool is only for renters of condos and cabins.... More

Bass has some of the best floating in the Steelville area. We rented a canoe on July 4th and floated from the resort to the Onondaga Cave access for a quieter stretch. The beginning of the Courtois River was curvy and a bit challenging to maneuver through, but it straightened out after awhile. We eventually met up with a bunch... More

We stayed at the Bass River Resort on the 8th, 9th & 10th of July 2014 in Cozy Cabins 5 & 5A. Leaving on the 11th. The campground is very well maintained, the staff was very friendly and courteous. We rented tubes for 7 of us to float the Courtois River on July 9 at a price of over $150... More
