Marrison Rd is one mile north of Pentwater Business 31 on Pere Marquette Highway (Old US 31). Turn west and proceed less than 1/2 mile to where it dead ends at the lake. There is plenty of room to turn around and park.

Bass Lake Boulevard is north from the north end of Pentwater's Business US 31 on Lakeshore Drive (across from the Wishing Well store) for about 2 miles and take a right on Bass Lake Blvd. Or turn west off Pere Marquette Highway on Lattin Rd for about 1.5 miles, and turn left on Bass Lake Blvd. The access is near the north end of the Blvd.
