Did you know that campers come to Kernville just to camp on the Kern River? They love it here for lots of reasons, and here’s why you should plan to camp on the Kern River with MRA!
Close to Adventure
Located two miles north of Kernville, on the Kern River, our campground is on the same property as our whitewater rafting check-in center, making your adventure getaway super easy to plan your whitewater + camping fun! We are an hour from the scenic Trail of 100 Giants, Dome Rock and the Needles, plus some really cool natural rock water slides. MRA offers world-class white water rafting tours plus lots of other outdoor adventures, just steps away from our family-focused campground, a mecca of amenities unto itself! Our camp amenities include…
Site Size Options — Standard, Double or Group
MRA offers many options with our spacious, well groomed, tent camping sites, steps away from the Kern River. Our Standard Sites hold up to six campers including children. Each site contains a picnic table and fire ring with cooking grate. If you are a BBQ aficionado, you may want to bring along your favorite tools for this gig! All the neighbors will want to eat at your picnic table.
Our Double Sites hold up to twelve campers with all the same amenities listed above, just more room for all the cousins or friends-of-friends!
Groups come here to reconnect with family and friends for reunions, birthday parties and more. Our Group Sites accommodate up to 12, 24 or 36 campers making it easy to plan your summer gathering on the Kern! Choose from group sites like Boulder Beach, which camps 24; Sandy Beach, Scrub Jay Beach or Cottonwood Beach which individually hold 12 campers, or together accommodate up to 36 campers.
Ladies LOVE our camp restrooms because we keep them sparkling clean, and you don’t really have to ‘rough it’ while you are here. Our camp restroom boasts flushing toilets, warm showers, and is well located within our campground layout.
NEW for 2019, Coin Operated Showers
Although California is now officially out of a drought, our business philosophy is always to focus on conservation. We believe that if each of us conserves a little, our efforts will benefit everyone! To conserve water, we have installed coin-operated showers in our campground showers. Only four quarters gets you a blissful four minutes of luxury in our camp shower! A quarter machine is located right outside the restrooms. And, in case you forgot it, we offer biodegradable shower suds, toothbrush & paste kits in our retail shop.
