    Kern River County Park, located near Bakersfield, CA, is a fantastic spot for camping with a mix of amenities and natural beauty. This place is perfect for those who enjoy a bit of comfort while still being close to nature. The campground offers a variety of accommodations, including tent sites, RV spots, cabins, and even glamping options.

    One of the standout features here is the proximity to the Kern River. Many campsites are right along the river's edge, providing stunning views and a peaceful atmosphere. Visitors have noted the abundance of wildlife, including geese, grebes, egrets, and even the occasional bald eagle. It's a birdwatcher's paradise.

    The campground is well-maintained, with clean restrooms and showers, though some facilities are currently being upgraded. For now, there are porta potties available, which are kept in good condition. The sites are spacious and shaded by trees, making it a comfortable spot even during the hotter months.

    If you're into fishing or just enjoy being by the water, you'll appreciate the easy access to the river. However, be cautious as the river can be fast-moving, especially during winter runoff. For those who prefer to stay dry, there are plenty of picnic tables and fire rings for a cozy campfire evening.

    The park is also conveniently close to Lake Ming and the Kern River Golf Course, offering additional activities just a short walk away. Whether you're passing through on your way to Death Valley or planning a longer stay, Kern River County Park is a great choice for a relaxing and enjoyable camping experience.

    Buena Vista is a man-made site located approximately 25 miles southwest of Bakersfield. When the site was completed in April 1973, it took 43 days to fill both Lake Evans and the much larger Lake Webb with over 2,300,000,000 gallons (or 6,800 acre feet) of water.

    Lake Webb is an elongated shape of 873 acres available for boating, jet‐skiing and fishing, as well as an additional 125 acres for jet‐skiing (maximum speed 45 mph). Projecting midway into the lake, a horseshoe‐shaped spit of land contains 112 campsites in a double row. To maintain the landscaping through the dry season, a sprinkler system operates, requiring campers to place their things in designated spots.

    Lake Evans, at 86 acres, is the place for the more serene pursuits of sailing, fishing, and boating at no more than 5 mph.

    Tehachapi Mountain Park, near Tehachapi, CA, is a fantastic spot for those who love a mix of nature and convenience. This place is open all year and offers a variety of camping experiences, from tent sites to RV spots and even some glamping options. The park sits at a high altitude, around 6,000 feet, and is surrounded by tall evergreens and oaks, giving it that classic mountainside camping vibe.

    One of the standout features here is the availability of a 10x10 person cabin and a mess hall facility that you can rent out. It's perfect if you're planning a group trip or just want a bit more comfort. The campground also has showers and toilets, which is always a plus when you're out in the wild.

    Visitors have mentioned the beautiful scenery and the peaceful atmosphere, especially during the weekdays. The temperatures can be quite pleasant, too—while it might be scorching hot down in Mojave, it's a cool 70 degrees up in the park. There's also a nature trail nearby, which is great for a quick hike.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just be aware that the road leading to the campground is narrow and twisty, so it's not the best place for large RVs or trailers. But if you're in a smaller rig or just car camping, you'll be fine.

    Overall, Tehachapi Mountain Park offers a great mix of natural beauty and practical amenities, making it a solid choice for a camping trip.
