Fairview campground is 13 miles north of Kernville and has 48 campsites for tents, trailers and RVs along the Upper Kern River. The campground has drinking water and vault toilets. Each campsite has a paved parking spur, table, fire ring and grate. There’s also a restaurant next to the campground if you want to skip out on camp food one night.

Our favorite Fairview campsites are 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18.

The town of Kernville has many shops, restaurants, bars, a grocery store, gas stations and a nice park along the banks of the Kern River. The campground is also about 40 miles south of a large stand of giant Sequoia Trees (“The Trail of the Giants”) – definitely worth a drive up to see.

Besides rafting and kayaking, other outdoor recreation in the area includes fishing, swimming, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. Fishing is extremely popular and the golden trout is highly sought after for catch and release fishing by fly fishermen.  Lake Isabella is just 5 miles away and offers a variety of water sports including water-skiing, sail-boarding, fishing, swimming and other activities.
The other 5 Upper Kern River campgrounds are: Headquarters, Limestone, Goldledge, Hospital Flat and Camp Three.
