There are so many things to do on the Kern River. Camping in one of the private campgrounds with full hookups, the Forest Service improved campgrounds and dry camping along the river.
Fishing, Hiking, Rafting, Stand Up Paddle Boards, Rock Climbing, Boating and Jet Skis on Lake Isabella and so much more. Great Food and drinks in Kernville. Great place for a family Vacation !

Big Water run---Class 4, 9 river miles--was a great time. Also, were able to swim some rapids. Great food. Guides were friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Jumped off a 20 foot cliff with my two teenage sons. Great time.

The fishing is just fine! The water is fast moving in places and COLD. But the time to be there is Sunday afternoon through Friday morning. Otherwise it is crazy with people.
You can camp at a park or on the side of the road. But PLEASE take your garbage out with you - it is just nasty how some people leave their [--] (literally!) behind.

Have seen better rivers in my life but the 14 mile drive to Kern is extraordinary and if you get a chance to spend a night in the area our host galaxy, the milky way will mesmerize you.
