Upper Kern

With big waves and dramatic drops, the Upper Kern River, just outside the historic town of Kernville, is the ultimate one-day river trip in California. We offer four different trips ranging in length and rapid rating. Our most popular trip (which accounts for 90% of our Upper Kern reservations) is our Full Day. Rates are per person, and do not include 6% Government and Service Fee.
