Quiet and lovely

We stayed here just for a night on our way to Death Valley. It’s super convenient from Bakersfield and nice and quiet, by the Kern River. Clean and calm with some nice sites by the river. All have picnic tables and fire rings. The host was so lovely and let us stay for free in a site that had…

Huge campsites

50 huge campsites with lots of trees for shade. Many river side sites. No hook ups, but there is a dump station and several water spigots. Been coming here for years. Only a few miles to town. A short walk to lake Ming and Kern River golf course

Great Stopping Place!

We have used this campground a couple of times to get out of LA at night and have an early start the next morning. I typically avoid campgrounds with valt toilets- but they have always been clean and we never stay more than a quick over night.

  • Gorgeous view of the mountains!

Great place for the night

Took a chance and found a spot last minute, right on the water. It was on gravel without shade but it didn't really matter because we were just crashing for the night. Beautiful, warm summer night, very friendly staff. People do like their jet skis there so if that bothers you then maybe find…

Tranquil and relaxing

Tucked in the mountains, you feel very peaceful. Nights were beautiful with all the stars lighting the sky. The caretaker was nice to show us a gopher snake too.

Very clean. Great one night stop over before heading to Las Vegas. Trains are very near so there is that noise

Tight space and dump use only for guests

We pulled in here to see if we could use the dump and fill our water tank. The park is set up in a u-shape. The road coming in is tight but doable, but once you turn the corner to head out we almost got stuck and had to back our way out!  The turn is so tight, we had to move some decorative rocks…

Good single night stop

Stayed here a single night on my way through the Bakersfield area. This RV park has everything you’re going to need and nothing more. An overwhelming majority of the spaces are for monthly residents, and you can tell most of the campers there are seasoned veterans. Right now the office is closed, I…

Nice Getaway location close to Pyramid Lake reservoir

Campground has three separate site loops with about 90 Dry Camp camp locations. Water spigots are available in some areas, but not for permanent hookup. I was here in November and it was pretty empty except for the weekend. Some people changed their minds about camping as often in California, there…

Stopped for one night. Just off “the 5 “ about 60 miles north of LA. Campground has large, private sites and I guess there’s a big lake nearby, but I arrived late and left early. Would loved to have explored but was on a march
