Approaching the GPS point for the Bass River Recreation Area along the south side of the river you will notice a small inland lake that was created from aggregate mining. This is popular place for fisherman and another water feature that is ideal for fishing from a kayak. The Bass River Recreation Area is a 1,665-acre site consisting of open meadows, open brush land, mature hardwoods, small ponds and the 300-acre lake.

It includes approximately three miles of frontage on the Grand River and provides for the activities of boating, hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding (on designated trails) as well as hunting.
