First time to the Kern River. Loved it. We were there August 1-6. The River was a little low but it was perfect for us with our 5 year old son. We were able to float down the river in our inner tubes safely. We were told May to June the river is very high in this area. We also fished in the river. Our camp site was great. We stayed in site 81 in our class C RV. Corner site on a creek that ran through the campground. The creek was great to sit in to escape the heat and float down. Lots of kids and dog friendly. The WIFI was good to stream TV and ATT cell service was good too. The sites had power, water and cable TV hook up. There is a dump station in the campground. They clean and rake all camp sites after each use and they enforce the 10:00pm quiet time. It is a short walk/ride to Kern River Brewery. Or it is about a hour drive to Trail of 100 Giants Sequoia Trees. Can’t wait to stay here again.
We stayed here June 2019 and absolutely loved it. We had site 80 which is back up right on the small Creek that runs right thru the middle of the grounds. The kids loved tubing down it all day. In front of us was the river. Gorgeous views. The grounds are very well maintained, they collect trash every morning, there is a small store inside the office in case you forgot anything. The town of Kerrville is a just a couple minutes up the road with little shops and things to do. This campground even offers activities for the whole family, movie night, bingo, even rock painting. This will be our go to campground every year.
In my opinion, they have the best “On the river sites”, and all those sites make a cul de sac down on the river. So if you have a large group you can all take up those spots and pretty much have your own area. If not, you can just reserve and make some great friends. The river is rushing by literally at your back door. There are little house/cabins also. Even if you don’t camp in those sites, the whole campground is very nice and well kept. Some of the pics were taken right at our site.
We love these campground. We go every year during the summer! Nice clean small campground. Book way in advance though. You can get a site right on the river with no sewage hook ups or get all hook ups off the river. You can even rent a cabin. Really close to town. Take a ride down the river in your tube and walk back. So much fun!
Nice campground that is kept up very well. Depending on the level of the river it can be very noisy. Great if you want to be right next to the river.
