Bass Rock is a small barren rock between Plum Island Sound and Ipswich Bay, in Ipswich, Massachusetts, USA. The rock is just south of Sandy Point and Sand Point State Reserve on Plum Island and northeast of Little Neck (neighborhood) on Great Neck.

The rock is named for the Striped Bass that frequent the local area from May to October.
