Kern River Camping: Just a few hours from Los Angeles.

Kern River Camping

Kern River Camping is a great way to spend the weekend. Just hours from the Los Angeles basin, the Kern River allows you to escape and spend a few days away from it all.

Camping alongside the Kern is beautiful, affordable and extremely fun for your whole group. With the countless outside activities and a fun, small town, camping along the Kern River is a great way to get away during the summer. Kern River campgrounds listed are both private and public.

The Kern River Valley provides ample outdoor activities. This includes world class whitewater river rafting, excellent fishing, fantastic single track mountain biking and lake recreation.

Camping on both Lake Isabella and on the Upper Kern provide close and easy access to the historic town of Kernville, CA.

There is camping on the Upper Kern, near Kernville and around Lake Isabella.
