Bass-Lake is a small community (census-designated place) located in Starke County, northwest Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,249. The town was named after the nearby lake which was populated with a large number of black bass. There are three campgrounds around Bass Lake (the lake) - Bass Lake Beach and Campground on the east side of the lake, Bielava Resort and Camp on the north side and Hickory Hills Campground on the south end. The lake also has some shallow areas used for swimming, water volleyball and other various water activities. Sailing, water skiing and knee boarding are also common. Bass Lake is naturally spring-fed and is about 30 feet deep at its' deepest part. Bass Lake Golf Course was established in 1927 and the Indiana National Golf Club at Swan Lake Resort is also nearby.
