Camp Three Campground is on the banks of the Upper Kern River about a mile north of Kernville. The campground has 52 sites for tents, trailers and RVs (up to 30 feet). Several campsites are along the river and many have shade from a variety of trees including Oak, Cottonwood and Juniper. Each campsite has a paved parking spur, table, fire ring and grate. Camp Three campground has drinking water and vault toilets.

Our favorite Camp Three campsites are 25, 34, 37, 41, 43 and 45.

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 45 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, Fairview, Goldledge and Hospital Flat.
