The Manteca Bass Pro Shop's interior is a tribute to the Yosemite and Sequoia area with a 65-foot replica of the world's largest tree, The General Sherman; murals depicting waterfalls, forests, and lakes; giant outdoor-themed chandeliers crafted by Bass Pro Shops' own artisans; and native wildlife displays.

Special displays in the store include a pictorial and memorial tribute to John Muir and the 26th United States President, Theodore Roosevelt. An avid outdoorsman, President Roosevelt promoted the conservation movement and efficient use and maintenance of our natural resources. Muir, an early advocate of conservation, was instrumental in saving the Yosemite Valley, the Sequoia National Park and various other wilderness areas.
