Stayed here for a week through RCI. The townhomes are split into two areas: one area surrounds the check-in office and pool area and the other is in a private residence area. We stayed in the latter. Both areas have trail access to the lake but the lake's water levels were very low, especially where these townhomes are located. Staff... More

We stayed at the WorldMark facility having exchanged through RCI. The RCI condos are a good distance from the office. The lake was very low when we visited. Distance to Yosemite is within reason. About 30 minutes to entrance to the park. Unit was very comfortable.

Nice medium size town nearby with everything you could want and only 45 miles to the CENTER of Yosemite National Park, which is huge and beautiful. There is also an old-fashioned train ride available before the park entrance about 26 miles away. Units are spacious with all big rooms and a full kitchen. Two pools and hot tubs plus tennis...

My husband and I stayed here recently on a trip we took to Yosemite. The place is located about 30 minutes away from Yosemite. We stayed in a two bedroom unit. It seems like this might have been an apartment complex that was converted into a resort. Overall a nice place to stay but it could use some updating, especially... More

We chose this resort because it was within striking distance to Yosemite Park, only 12 miles to the entrance. It is very quiet and peaceful and so relaxing. Bass Lake is only a short distance, with Oakhurst only a couple of miles down the road for shopping etc. The units are clean and comfortable which we were happy about. The... More

I exchanged into WorldMark Bass Lake due to it's proximity to Yosemite. I have been told that it is the closest timeshare to Yosemite. The timeshare was one of the "older" RCI exchange units.
