An Amazing 34 Years on the Kern
Thank you for your Support!
After 34 wonderful years of offering whitewater rafting and adventure tours to fun, adventurous guests like you, we are excited to announce that Mountain & River Adventures is flowing into a campground and venue business only. We will miss seeing all your smiling, excited faces as you return from a great adventure on the water or the mountain. We will miss all those fantastic tales from your first paddling tour on the Kern or riding an epic trail with us! Please allow us to introduce our buyer, Sierra South Mountain Sports. Known locally as Sierra South, this outfitter is locally owned, and family operated, much like Mountain & River Adventures and they started their operation on the Kern a couple of years before we did. Sierra South is located at 11300 Kernville Rd, Kernville, CA 93238, an easy two miles south of our Campground! Our company website and social media names will be changing soon, we will keep you posted. We would love to stay in touch! What does this mean for you? If you were our Rafting guest, you will now be calling Sierra South, Kern River Outfitters or Whitewater Voyages to book your whitewater fun. If you are not sure which outfitter would work best for your group, just reply to this email and we can make a recommendation for you. It’s going to be a quick whitewater rafting season, so make plans now! We would love to see you too, so please consider camping with us and paddling with one of our outfitter friends! Come unplug, relax and camp along the Kern river’s edge, which will be our new company name, River’s Edge Campground Retreat. If you were a Mountain Bike guest on one of our mtb shuttles you have a couple of options. Work out a “self-shuttle” to ride Cannell Trail at the end of May-June. Or wait until Fall when our friends over at Sierra South will be starting up their new mtb shuttle service. Many of you already know how easy it is to ride back to our campground, after a grueling ride on the epic Cannell Trail, to relax, tell stories and do some fishing at the river’s edge. If you are our Camping guest, nothing is changing,
you can continue to count on visiting our beautiful, private park along the edge of the Kern River. Our camp sites are spacious, our restrooms are sparkling clean, and with everyone working collectively, we get to see hundreds of camping guests each week who are inspired to use Leave No Trace principles as we all relax, unplug and enjoy the Kern together. Looking for an outdoor venue for a special birthday, family reunion, gathering or celebration? Our Grove and Pavilion are perfect outdoor venues for your next outdoor gathering! If your children attended one of our summer Kids Adventure camps, we encourage you to let our buyer Sierra South know that you are excited for your kids to get to participate in active, unplugged, wholesome, outdoor learning adventures. They are considering holding outdoor summer camps, if not this year, then next year. Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to helping you relax, unplug and rejuvenate at the Kern River’s Edge. If you have a great adventure memory to share with us, we would love to hear about the first time you paddled the Kern, or bombed JO or Cannell Trail. Let us hear from you! We would also like to take a moment to say “thank you” to each of our wonderful guides and crew here at MRA. Over the years we’ve gotten to know so many fun, inspiring adventurers and we just appreciate the care, encouragement, swimmer adventures, and swimmer stories of paddling guests being plucked out of the majestic Kern River. We thank our crew, and we thank you, our loyal customers, for a great run of 34 years on the Kern. Come unplug, relax, and camp along the Kern river’s edge, at River’s Edge Campground Retreat. Join us! Thank you, John, Rhonda & Sebastian Stallone
