Bass Lake - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Community / Resort Pool
Lakeside at Bass Lake is a private gated community offering luxury properties with picturesque views over Lake Davenport - which covers an area of over 300 acres.
Community facilities available include two pools (one which is heated), a hot-tub and clubhouse with a gymnasium. To pass the time in a more relaxed setting, there are a number of picnic benches with barbecues alongside the lake. For the keen fishermen, the lake is stocked and can be fished with a local license.
Situated centrally between a number of supermarkets there should never be a problem picking up those everyday essentials. The local Publix supermarkets is around 1.5 miles east on highway US192, with another around 2 miles south on US27. Both offer a selection of other adjoining shops and eateries, including: Applebees, Quiznos, an Indian take-away, Dominos pizzeria and a wine & bistro parlour. For the nearest Walmart Supercenter, this on US27, just north of the junction with US192.
If you head south on US27 towards Interstate 4 and there is the Posner Park shopping centre offering major stores including JC Penney, Target, Ross, Dress for Less and many more. Again, there is a further selection of restaurants available.

When quoting distances to Walt Disney World Resort, these are not taken to the 'gates', but are representative of the actual distance to the specific attraction. Driving distances are not biased to any villa community.
Old Lake Davenport
Old Lake Davenport - Local Map and Villa Communities
This is the stretch of highway US27 which borders Old Lake Davenport and encompasses a number of rental communities near to the intersection with US192. Improvements to the roads and increase in visitors to this area have meant an increase in the supermarkets, shops and restaurants in this area. When heading to the parks US192 is the best route and for the Gulf coast, head south for Interstate 4.
Staying in this area means a car is essential when visiting the theme parks, area attractions and the local shops.
