I meant to post this last summer when we did the two day Lower Kern rafting trip with KRO, but it slipped my mind…then I received their newsletter and was like “oh yeah, I need to give them a shout out on TA!” So here I am. Anyway, the trip was ABSOLUTELY. PHENOMENAL.
Our guide Kristin was amazing. Knowledge, funny, and a real pro. We felt safe the whole time. The river was exciting. There are so many class fours and threes you are always wondering what’s around the bend.
The food….was to die for. The lunches, dinner, real dutch oven cooking!
The camping, if you could call it that, was first class. The extra thick camp pads (I think that’s what they’re called) were very comfortable. The stars were spectacular. Coming from LA, I never get to see the stars that often, and oh my gosh, they blew me away. Not only that, but in terms of location, Kern River Outfitters has the best campsite because it is situated exactly halfway into the trip. Compare this to the other guys who are further upstream, giving their two day trips a short first day and a loooonnnngggg second day. (Yikes for lower water years.)
I highly recommend this outfit. They have it all together. The staff, their rafting headquarters, their camp, the food, it blew me away with the amount of organization that they have perfected. Looking forward to next summer! Bring on the rapids!
