LOWER KERN DETAILS

The Lower Kern is the section of white water below Lakes Isabella. The flow is dependent on water released from Lake Isabella Dam, and is the most consistent flow of water all season long!

 

We have several exciting trips on the Lower Kern including 1/2 day, full-day, and overnight rafting options.

 

On the 2-day all-inclusive rafting trip, you get to camp right on the river and eat like a king where your guide becomes the chef!
