North Fork Kern River Road

The North Fork Kern River between Kernville
and Johnsondale offers many camping opportunities
and scenic views. The road follows along the banks
of the North Fork Kern River for about 18 miles.
This is some harsh country side and the weather
can be extreme...

There are some established campgrounds that charge
a fee. There are also many areas along the river you
can camp free. No camping or campfires within 25'
of the river. There are too many cops in this area...
don't try anything.

Portable toilets and garbage dumpsters.
Kind of barren on a hot day.
