My wife and I made an early morning stop for breakfast at the Forks prior to leaving on a multi-day backpacking adventure in Yosemite National Park. We got there just after they opened and enjoyed the quiet, rather rustic ambiance as we looked out the large windows overlooking Bass Lake. It was a great scene. We both ordered The Chicken... More

Great homestyle cooking. If you like chicken fried steak this is the place. The plates aren't big enough to hold the steak. Absolutely great!

We stayed here for the Yosemite half marathon. It was very convenient for the race because the finish line is about a mile away. The one bedroom cabin#3 is very clean and pretty much has everything we needed including kitchen items. Staff is nice and friendly. Too bad we didn't have enough time to enjoy the lake. But we will... More

We frequent this place often mainly because there aren't many places to eat at in Bass Lake. The burgers are good, but the meat on the burgers are very skinny. I think it would be better if they were just a tad bigger. I'm sure they do that to keep the cost down. Also the salad are swimming in water... More

My husband and I camp at Bass Lake every year and eating at The Forks is one of the things I always look forward to. Great food, fun atmosphere. Beautiful lake views and outdoor patio dining. Friendly people. You kind of forget you are in California!

Despite the very crowded Bass Lake area this restaurant was able to seat us and deliver our meal in 15 minutes. It was very good food and fresh, you can sit at an old fashioned counter and watch them cook .

Had a lovely time at Forks Resort. Beautiful setting. We stayed in one of the lodges by the lake. Unfortunately the first night we were in a lodge close to a road and the restaurant and the noise of the road all night and the deliveries early morning meant that we did not sleep very well. However the staff were... More

We stayed at the Worldmark Wyndham resort and Forks was very near by. We stopped for dinner - good place to eat if you want onion rings and burgers. Very casual.

Have stayed several times at the Forks and have not been disappointed ever. The staff is great, accommodating and friendly. Have stayed in various cabins and they are clean and well maintained. Have never left for home without having one of the famous Fork burgers....delicious!
