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.

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.
