“Windy with great water views”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2019

Overall Rating

The wind was whipping every day but one during our eleven days at Stine Cove Recreation Area. It was so windy, that our portable solar panels which we keep weighted down with steel bars and rocks flipped over and shattered. The location is beautiful and we were able to camp very close to the edge of the lake. The terrain is rocky so... more

“Peaceful”

Reviewed Nov 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Lake Issabella is a great spot with a lot to do in the area. Kernville which is a five minute drive from stone cove, is a nice small town with the Kernville river as the main attraction with rafting and fishing and such. As far as the camping spot it was a bit rocky and bumpy on the way in, as we scraped our jack and hitch pretty good... more

“Windy & Quiet”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2018

Overall Rating

One night stay in a class A 34ft, easy access from main road. Gravel/dirt road leading to campsite. All open area close to the lake, you pick where you want to camp. There were high winds on this day/night, only one other camper and the place was quite as a mouse. No running water or electric, only outhouse. If you want a fire you ... more

“Windy spot right on Lake Isabella”

Reviewed Jan 30, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a quiet, clean cove and you can park right on the waters edge. Access can be a bit rocky and sandy, but easy enough to get in. There is a vault toilet here that closes in the off season, otherwise there are no amenities. There is a 14 day stay limit here and they do keep track. If you need to dump or get fresh water Camp 9 is 2... more

“Windy but worth it!”

Reviewed Oct 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Stine Cove Recreation Area is a free campsite in front of Lake Isabella. It's a few miles from the tiny town of Kernville. We stayed at Stine Cove for two weeks and enjoyed the lakefront views and easy access to Kern River, Trail of 100 Giants, and Kern River Brewing Co. Stine Cove can easily accommodate a large rig. We have a 36f... more
