Camp Kernville is the perfect place for the RVer, camper or vacationer!

Camp Kernville has an easy, efficient reservation system and the location is perfect! You can walk to town or the rodeo grounds easily. The fellow campers were friendly and the river and countryside were beautiful. The town is super quaint. We already made our reservations for next year!
This was our first time camping in Kernville and along the Kern River. There was total of six people, two cars, and we shared one site. We had two kids and four adults. Kernville is one really walks around during the day because of the heat. If you like water activities, go to the river! My husband and I enjoyed it so much we are going back in August for our anniversary.
Great place for entire family. Professional staff, kind, polite, clean and well maintained campground. Had a blast here and good location. Within walking distance to restaurants, shops, stores, sports bars. Nest to river. Highly recommend this campground and can;'t wait to enjoy it again.
What a great spot to camp, swim, trailer rentals, storage... They have the cleanest restrooms of any campground and the best beach/swim area on the river. The staff treats you like family and we've camped here dozens of times and will continue to. It's super convenient if you like to stroll to town or the park.
Loved this place. Full hookups, only campground with its own beach, right on the river, close enough that we walked to the bars at night. Staff was extremely friend(ly). Would highly recommend and definitely will be staying here again.
We've been coming to Camp Kernville for 6 years and it is hands down one of our favorite places on earth! The sites are shady and spacious, the beach is incredible, and the location can't be beat! You can hike up river and float back to camp or even a little further past. You can walk right into town and grab ice cream or a meal (we always eat breakfast at the Cracked Egg). Or you can just hang out on the beach and in the water, watching all the rafters and kayakers go by! the staff is really fantastic (they were so friendly and helpful). We are already booked for next year and can't wait to come back!
