4th of July Fireworks canceled for 2020, weโ€™ll be back better than ever in 2021! ๐Ÿ’ฅ

It's with a lot of sadness that we're announcing that this year's 4th of July Fireworks are cancelled. But you can bet that the fireworks show will be back for 2021, bigger and better than ever!

This was a tough decision, one that took a lot of investigation and discussion, both internally and with the many regional partners we call upon annually to play key roles in making the event a success.

Opening Friday, May 8th! Takeout and Curbside only from 11am-7:30pm daily.

Call us at 559-642-3737 to place your orders!

Just so you donโ€™t get your hopes up, we are serving a somewhat limited menu. At this point, we are not doing Chicken Fried Steaks or Ice Cream Pies (yet), along with a few other things, but we have the essentials!

Store open 9am-7:30pm. Fully stocked and ready for the season!

Not doing cabins or boat rentals yet, likely not until the Shelter in Place orders are lifted for California

It took some time, but we wanted to make sure we could open safely before we chose to do so. The health and safety of our people and our customers is, and remains, our main priority. We have always taken extreme pride in our high standards for our business, especially when it comes to safety and cleanliness. As we face this new challenge, we are reinforcing training with our employees around the next level initiatives needed to maintain a healthy environment.

These include:
Personal cleanliness precautions; not coming to work sick, proper hand washing
Wearing masks and gloves (as appropriate)
Plexiglass barriers at store checkout and takeout counter
Curbside touchless pickup
Disinfecting frequently touched surfaces
Hand sanitizer at the front door
Enforcing social distancing including limiting the number people in the building if necessary

Thank you for your patience and continued support as we work through this. We are all in this journey together and our sincere hope is that you are managing through these difficult times. We look forward to seeing our local community members very soon and welcoming all of you back to Bass Lake and our beautiful resort this summer when we are able!

Thank you Susi for modeling our new cheeseburger masks!

Oh no! It seems our April 10th opening date was ambitious. With the new Madera County and Federal Government restrictions we wonโ€™t be able to open until at least May 1st. We will continue to keep you updated as we navigate all of this uncertainty.

Looking forward to when we can sit on the patio together enjoying a Forks Burger and looking out over our beautiful Bass Lake!

Bass Lake Fishing Derby 2020 Update

In the best interest of our community and all participants, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Bass Lake Fishing Derby. This was a very difficult decision to make and several factors were considered including 'stay at home orders,' closures of all Bass Lake campgrounds, cabins rentals being canceled and of course the risk of spreading this dangerous virus.
We feel strongly that this is the best decision under the current circumstances.

The Bass Lake Fishing Derby is a long-running tradition at the Lake and we are already planning for 2021!
We will have the 8 additional $500 prize fish and also plan to add trophy trout as well - just to sweeten the pot.

So mark your calendars for May 1st & 2nd 2021!

If you have already registered for the Derby we will gladly issue a refund or carry your registration over to 2021.

For more information please email: [email protected]

Thank you for your continued support of this great event!

The health and safety of our employees, guests, and all The Forks Family is our first and most important priority. With that in mind, we have decided to postpone our opening for the 2020 season. We did not make this decision lightly and hope to bring Forks Burgers and JOY to you all very soon.

Tentative new opening date is April 10, 2020 but we will continue to monitor developments as they come. Letโ€™s all do our part to slow the spread of this virus. Until then, take this time to spend quality time with family and stay safe out there!

Did you know that Sierra Recreation hosts a variety of Interpretive Programs here at the lake, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the summer? Programs and hikes are free and take place at the Lakeside Amphitheater (hikes depart from the Way of the Mono Trailhead).

โ€œLight Up the Sky 4th of July Fireworks Showโ€

One of the oldest traditions at Bass Lake is the Fourth of July fireworks display. The first fireworks display was staged from the dock of the Falls Resort by Fred Homan 82 years ago, back in 1937! We are so excited the lake is full and the fireworks show will โ€œLight Up the Skyโ€ on Thursday, July 4th at approximately 9:00 pm following the Boat Parade.

You may, or may not, know that the fireworks are supported entirely by donations from community businesses, homeowners and visitors. Want to help? No amount is too small and every little bit will ensure the continuation of this tradition that brings smiles and cheers from young and old alike. You can make a donation online via the Chamber website http://bit.ly/BLChamberDonation.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Just had my FIRST for the season Forks' Bacon Cheeseburger dry, with SWEET raw onions, grilled onions on grilled sourdough bread. WONDERFUL! Because of Covid19, they weren't able to open in March/April like usual so it was a REAL TREAT! Didn't have my chocolately chocolate, malty malt, though.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฐ
Got this T Shirt for my grandson last summer.
Has to be dry, cheese, bacon with grilled AND raw onions!
Dear Forks, I just had a daydream about your The Meal. But alas, I am nearly 1,700 miles away.
When do you close for the winter?
We recently had the most amazing stay at The Forks Resort. We will be coming here again and again.
We stayed over the 4th of July in a cabin at The Forks. It was very comfortable and we really enjoyed being able to sit outside on the deck. Just being at the lake and in the forest felt very relaxing. We will stay again sometime.
Enjoying our last Forks burger of the season!
Last chance for your Forks' burger this week.. closing for the season on October 7th.
We found (2) stray dogs in the cedar bluff / lupine campground. They have no tags. The dogs are healthy and we left food for them. Golden retriever, and smaller dog maybe a cocker spaniel.
Amazingly Awesome!!
