If you look closely at the picture of Big Bass Lake, you can see the fence surrounding the tennis courts in the distance. The athletic field also ran parallel to the lake. Now that the camp has been sold and almost completely renovated, one of the lone remaining features of the former camp are the tennis and basketball courts. No doubt they are used as a form of country club atmosphere for the new complex.
I’m sure the former campers appreciated the tennis and basketball courts and I’d daresay that the latter was the more popular of the two given the fact that an inner city YMCA sent campers to this Michigan facility. Yet of all activities I’m sure the Big Bass Lake waterfront took first prize.
Campers and counselors feel free to comment about your tennis and basketball courts.
