LONG winding single lane road to get to park from Caliente. Watch out for other cars around many hairpin turns. There are a few turnouts and enough wide spots to pass. Campground was very nice for the price. Nothing is level, will have to work hard for it. The dirt is very fine and powdery, so plan taking some of it home with you! Great quiet place if you have the time to get to it!!

Breckenridge campground is on the top of Breckenridge mountain which at 6600 feet overlooks Bakersfield and the southern San Joaquin valley, which in the summers is blistering hot. Breckenridge, when we arrived, was 79 beautiful degrees which sure beats the 105 in the valley. The campground is thickly covered with tall pine trees and provides ample shade. Most of the sides are on a hillside overlooking a small meadow.

Our campsite was high on the hill. We almost missed it because t is hidden behind a couple of fallen logs (about 4 feet wide!) There was a nice bench carved out of a log next to a fire pit and a picnic table. Just down the hill was a small pit toilet that didn't smell too bad although there was no toilet paper.

We were the only people in the campground which was nice for a Saturday night. A couple of cars drove through the campground, but did not stay. One car tried to off road up the hill next to the campsite and kicked up a lot of dust into our camp. This is not in an OHV area so we were a tad irritated. Oh, well. It was quiet and we stayed up late watching the stars.

There is a fire lookout about 5 miles from the campground and several hiking trails. I need to go back there just to go hiking. There are no lakes, rivers or even creeks here so hiking is about the only activity (bring a book.)

Getting to this campground is the hard part. It takes driving over an hour on a very steep, narrow and winding road. If you like this type of driving then this trip is for you. the road is paved except for the 1/2 mile into the campground and is not bumpy. There are no services along the way so you need to bring everything with you.

If you like isolated quiet this is the place for you. If you want water, services and activity - go to Lake Isabella.
