We went to Lake Isabella & Kern River over Labor Day weekend. I made reservations for Hungry Gulch Campground, and loved it there. I emailed two other trip advisors based on their helpful reviews to ask what campsite they loved so much.... both wrote back saying Site #30. I agreed, it was the most private! Though, we ended up choosing Site #72 because it had more shade, and huge boulders for our kids to play on. Our fire pit was surrounded by these boulders so it felt very private, too. There was a water spout in our site and the bathroom with shower was very close to Site #72. I never had to wait for a shower, no lines, the camp hosts explained that being in the back it doesn't get as busy as the shower in the front.....and this was a holiday weekend. Showers were $1.25 for 10 minutes or $.50 for just 4 minutes. One surprise was that there was no bear lockers. They don't have a bear problem I understood, but I was expecting to have one to store my food....the squirrel got my hot dog buns within 5 minutes of arriving - haha. Huge compliment to the camp hosts, they were very friendly and helpful with tips or suggestions. Julia and Bob helped to make our trip that much better. FYI: Both French Gulch Marina and North Fork Marina were very close driving distance if you wanted to rent a boat/jet skis. We did - it was so much fun! Great 5 days spent there. Will definitely go back there again!
