A Great Rafting Vacation is More Affordable and Closer Than You Think

Skyrocketing fuel and lodging costs have all but eliminated expensive vacation plans that require travel and overnight stays for many people. Kern River Outfitters offers unique and affordable vacation opportunities for people looking to spend quality time with their friends and families this summer.

For those living in Southern California, whitewater rafting on the Kern River is a brilliant get away that makes sense from an aesthetic and a financial perspective. The Kern River is a veritable whitewater playground and is only a three hour drive from the Los Angeles basin. It is the furthest south of any Sierra Nevada river and offers Southern California residents world class whitewater practically in their own back yard.

Kern River Outfitters’ most popular rafting trip, a two day Lower Kern run, offers twenty miles of fabulous whitewater and a private camp loaded with luxuries including redwood decks, thick sleeping pads, and gourmet meals.

Keith Stephens, general manager of Kern River Outfitters mentions, “Folks looking to take families or groups of friends on a summer vacation just can’t beat the Lower Kern. For one price, guests can take advantage of two days of great whitewater, four wonderful meals, and an overnight stay in one of the most beautiful settings in California. The savings in travel and lodging costs alone make this an attractive vacation opportunity. When you add in your personal guide, gear, great food, and private riverside campsite, this overnight trip on the Lower is an irresistible vacation alternative to expensive summer outings.” He adds, “Our office staff takes the trouble out of planning and can help provide all kinds of options for those looking to combine their rafting trip with other activities including hiking, fishing, lake sports, mounting biking and even golf right here in the Kern Valley.”

They specialize in running all sections of the Kern River including the Upper, Lower, and Forks of the Kern. They offer trips from a two hour Class II and III run to three day Class V runs.
