Kern River and the town of Kernville have a touch of Spring in the air with sunny days and crisp, clear nights, which means that wildflower season, whitewater rafting, Spring Break and the annual Lake Isabella fishing derby are all just around the corner! Make plans to get outside.
Need to build in time to slow down, relax, explore and spend time with loved ones? We can help. Time for a Kern River camp out!
Get outside with a Spring camping trip
Planning a Spring Break camping trip with your family? You already know that giving your kiddos time for unstructured play is a true gift. Encouraging them to be active is easy at Kern River's Edge Campground. Kids can easily access our Connect 4, corn hole, shuffle ball, frisbee golf and volleyball equipment and games. Kids absolutely love the freedom of riding their bikes around camp! Pack your fishing poles and hiking boots because you can fish right from the shoreline of camp and test your lungs hiking "On the Edge Trail" right across from camp.
Depending on Kern River flows, inner tubing can be a super fun activity right from our shoreline, but only during low river flows. We are stocking up on inner tubes for our Camp Store and will be stocked up and ready for you after Kern River flows have peaked, typically around June.
Use the Book Now button on our website to reserve your power & water RV site or tent campsite. RV sites include power and water hook-ups for one RV, so get your site picked out very soon!

Campers Who Care
Recreating responsibly includes packing trash bags to leave our wild spaces cleaner than you found them. There is a glass ban in the Sequoia National Forest, so remember to use plastic storage containers, ziploc bags, or metal containers for camping gear and kitchen supplies instead of glass. Always practice Leave No Trace (en Español) principles and pack out what you pack in. See more Kern River camping etiquette tips.
