Kern River

Kern River

A beautiful outdoors playground just a few hours drive from Orange County! Kern River is an amazing place for whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, camping, and more! At about 3.5 hours from Orange County, it's perfect for a weekend away from the city. There are several campsites located primarily along Upper Kern River and some motels in the town of Kernville. Whitewater rafting is highly recommended and there are several outfitters that will take you through the rapids no matter what your skill level. Peak white water rafting is spring/early summer but varies depending on snow pack each year.

Here are a few great local businesses to support while there, more will be added soon!
