Suspicious activity has been reported on the east side of the lake. A snowmobiler came from the lake onto the property and was caught looking into a building. Be aware! (2/28)
On January 23rd, the Crow Wing County Board passed the 2018 AIS Prevention Plan leaving Bass Lake with zero level 1 inspection hours. One of the alternatives is to have volunteer inspectors at the access as we did in the past. Training is provided by the DNR and more information will be coming.
Ice on November 9th
