KRS Camp James
It’s time to plan the vacation of the summer. The Kern River Valley offers a plethora of activities year-round. During the spring and first weeks of summer, the river is up and adrenaline junkies are wanted. Rafting features level 4’s and 5’s with several local rafting companies to choose from, it’s time to get on the water. Wait a few more weeks and the river is perfect for tubing and swimming. Rafting, not your thing? Well, the Valley also features hundreds of hiking and biking trails, and for those bird lovers out there, the Valley is home to one of the last surviving Riparian Rain Forests in California, home to thousands of migratory birds. And of course, fish are stocked regularly which means more catching and less napping. Check out these and all the other amazing activities the valley has to offer.
