Bass Lake is a great place to spend time in. There is a marina there where you could rent a pontoon boat for a couple of hours and go out on the lake. I would suggest a meal at Ducey's on the Lake, at the Pines Resort. A nice lakeview restaurant with good food. They also have a casual venue there with really good sandwiches and salads.

There are a couple of nice gifts shops and an antique store, Bullwinkle's that are fun to browse through. These are located in the Pines Village. If you need supplies to pick up for Yosemite, there is also a nice grocery store. Enjoy! :)

You're welcome, another thing you may enjoyed is the Bass Lake Queen boat ride which is a scenic ride that goes around the lake there. Have fun! :)

It leaves from the dock in the back of Ducey's on the Lake at the Pines Resort. They do an hour daily tour in the summer, you may want to call to see when they open. Have fun! :)
