“Great access to river”

Overall Rating

This is a lovely campground with great access to the Kern River. We only had to walk about 500 feet and then we could enjoy tubing and relaxing by the river. The campground has some extra convenience fees that added up to an additional $20 and they charged us the price of a half of a full day because we arrived two hours early, so all in all an extra $60 which seems excessive to me. The restrooms are small, but clean with very low water pressure in the showers. The campground is centrally located so that you can walk to the few restaurants that are open. You can also walk and enjoy a beautiful park. We stayed in spot 94 right next to the office and bathrooms. Space was long and had quite a bit of shade, which was very helpful. Sites have fire pits, picnic tables and ours had an extra prep table next to the picnic table.

“Pleasant, Off Season”

Overall Rating

Because we were at Camp Kernville off season (early January) there were very few other campers here. It was quiet! Our dogs were welcome. We found a nearby area where the dogs could run free for great exercise. One had to be careful to honor the “No Trespassing” signs. The river was lovely and much appreciated! The hiking trails were a drive away although a print out described how to reach them. If you have kids or love them all, you can likely enjoy it here during the high season but beware....some sites are close together and the water attraction and noise associated with the beach activities will definitely play a part. I was surprised that my sewer hose did not fit into the sewer receptacle. We taped our sewer hose on so are getting by. There is a dump site here. We appreciated the good fire pit. Wood can be purchased for $7.50 per bundle. I’ll visit here again during off season. Verizon is working well at site 58.
