Some residents on the north side of Big Bass Lake really don’t need the public landing anymore as they have a road that leads right beside the lake for easy access to deposit their boats on the lake. Most of the lake has hillsides that make that ability quite difficult without massive landscaping to correct that problem.

Given the two options, I would rather have a grassy tree lined hillside leading down to my pier as our property was much like that on the southwest corner of the lake. Our cottage was situated on top of the hill overlooking the lake for a great vista of the lake. Five large windows were set in our dining area so that we could look upon Big Bass Lake while eating. Our hillside trees largely concealed the house from the lake.

However, for some, they don’t have to wait in line to get their boats into the lake when they have a lakeside road. Which do you prefer?
