“Great location, tight for large rv, overpriced for boondock.”

Reviewed Apr 29, 2019

Overall Rating

Overnighted. Clean well maintained. Curved pull throughs that are tight. Because of a huge shrub on the passenger side I had to unhitch my toad to be able to position myself so I could put out my rear slide and open my front door. Congenial, attentive camp host offered help registering at vending machine.

Dec. 3, 2018 It was after dark when we arrived, quiet night. We woke up to a green lush park like setting, no doubt the fall colors are gorgeous in here if you time it just right. Every site was paved, flat and pull thru. Only half of the sites were available, others were blocked off...not sure why. Great walking path over to lake ming... more

“Great spot by the River ”

We drove past the first sign that said “full” and into the campground where we self registered at the touch screen. $12 per night but $8 registration fee, so heads up. I selected a spot by the river and it was beautiful, quiet, and we could hear the river as we fell asleep. Paved roads to the campsites. The bathrooms weren’... more

“Nice place”

Reviewed Apr 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We were here on one of the last days of the winter rates. This is a self register campground, at least when we were there, and is one of the most unique systems we've seen. The friendly camp host directed us to a little green building that had a touch screen display that we used to register and pay (credit card only) for our site. Kind... more

Very nice setting. We camped mid week and there was only 5 other campers. Apparently this place gets packed on weekends and the summer. Bathroom was dirty and run down.

Looking for a half way point from San Francisco to Joshua we came across Kern River Campground. Close to the highway and Bakersfield. I had called in advance and told the woman on the phone that I was traveling with my husband and 1 dog, she confirmed the $12 off season rate (in- season is $24/night). I told her we were not sure of ... more

“Don't count on your GPS getting you here”

Reviewed Nov 22, 2014

Overall Rating

This was an overnight stop for one night so we didn't want to spend a lot of money and didn't need hookups. Our problem started when Google Maps put us on the north side of the Kern River and had us entering the Park from Round Mountain Road. There is NOT an entrance here. You can see the park but you are on the wrong side of the ri... more

Weird sign in process at a machine that didn’t even give us a receipt to show we had paid. Noisy and overpriced for no hook ups. Toilets were disgusting
