      The crew of CFI could answer this question as they often do Nudes in the News, and Clothesfree TV video editions from that location.

      I might be partially correct in saying that nudity in isolated State of California areas falls under the (1977) Cahill Policy generally honored by law enforcement and rangers.

      This link has many references to States and Federal policy on nudity in areas such as you mention.

      Link to legal posts on nudity on State and Federal lands posted in the Forums

      Partial quote by "Sanslines" posted this in the above links:

      California State Law may allow nudism but does nothing to protect nudists from local and county ordinances against nudism. There are no legally established nude beaches in California where a person can go and be nude and be specifically protected from local law enforcement or local ordinances against nudism. Until certain areas including beaches are designated by the state as official nude beaches, sign posted as such to warn non nudists, and operated openly as a nude beach, a wide variety of harrasment can take place.

      Other partial quotes from the same links:

      The law and public-land nudism in California
      Federal law
      There is no federal law against nudity. Nude beaches, such as Baker Beach in San Francisco, operate within federal park lands in California. However, under a provision called concurrent jurisdiction, federal park rangers may enforce state and local laws, or invite local authorities to do so.

      State law
      A 1972 California Supreme Court decision In re Smith held that simple beach nudity (absent sexual or shock motives) does not constitute the crime of indecent exposure.

      The California State Park system is a special case. Simple nudity is illegal in state parks except in areas designated for the purpose. Although the state has declined to officially designate any nude beaches, traditional use has un-officially designated them, according to the Cahill policy.

      It is widely believed that health laws require shoes in a restaurant or food store. However, such laws apply only to the food-handling staff. There is no California state health law requiring customers or patrons to wear anything at all. Dress codes are at the discretion of private business management. See letter from California Department of Health Services.

      Finally, California Penal Code section 647(a) states:

      647. Every person who commits any of the following acts is guilty of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor:
      (a) Who solicits anyone to engage in or who engages in lewd or dissolute conduct in any public place or in any place open to the public or exposed to public view.
      However, it would be quite a stretch to apply this law against nudists, since simple nudity is not a lewd act.
      Local law
      Various counties and municipalities may enact their own dress codes, and many have.

        Bass Lake is a fairly large lake that has a lot of 'hidden' spots. I'm not sure where they film their episodes, but obviously they are in some of those hidden spots. It is a very nice area to visit especially in the spring and fall time. Being up in mountains nearby, it gets very cold and snowy during the winter.

          There are really few secluded spots on the lake itself. The shots on the lake of waterskiers and jetskiers are in areas quite visable from the shore as well.

          Most of the Nudes in the News coverage is filmed on Willow Creek at the "Falls" area which is not directly on the lake.

          On sunny days, the falls area is nice year around. (Very cold water however!)
