Out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Kernville, our campground is located just 2.5 miles north of Kernville. This area is also our check-in center for Class IV-V river trips on the Forks, Upper and Lower Kern. Man folks enjoy that they can drive to one location in Kernville, set up camp, and then walk over to check-in for one of our exciting Kern River rafting trips.
If you come to Kernville to just get away from it all, our campground is a great place to relax. With amenities* such as volleyball, shuffle board, horseshoe pits and convenient river access we can help you fully relax and enjoy. We also encourage you to join us in helping to preserve the ecology of the Kern River.
