Camping Sites on the Kern River

Kern River Camping at MRA Campground

MRA’s Kern River campground is a fully equipped campground with 34 camp sites (see map below), deluxe bathrooms, hot showers, drinking water, picnic tables, fire pits, and group gathering area. Located along the banks of the Kern River, enjoy immediate river access for fishing, horseshoe pits and hammocks to relax in after a great day of adventure. Call us today at (800) 861-6553 to reserve your camp site!

Out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Kernville, our campground is located just 2.5 miles north of Kernville. This area is also our check-in center for Class IV-V river trips on the Forks, Upper and Lower Kern. Many folks enjoy that they can drive to one location in Kernville, set up camp, and then walk over to check-in for one of our exciting Kern River rafting trips.

If you come to Kernville to just get away from it all, our campground is a great place to relax. With amenities* such as volleyball, shuffle board, horseshoe pits and convenient river access we can help you fully relax and enjoy. We also encourage you to join us in helping to preserve the ecology of the Kern River.

Reserve one site for your family and friends, or all 34 sites for your group, just ask us. Our camp sites book up quick, so reserve early. Summer months such as July-August can be very warm in Kernville. We recommend that you bring along an Easy-Up shade canopy to provide extra shade while camping. Firewood and ice are available for purchase right on-site. Since we do not have hook-ups, self-contained RVs are a must.

Adventure, relax and enjoy with MRA!

Up to six persons per site (including children).
