Upper Kern rafting season extended

Our most popular day trip, the Full Day Upper Kern, is now offered through the end of July, 2017.

The Upper Kern is a free-flowing, unrestricted river, which runs into Isabella Lake. The regulated outflow from our lake is the Lower Kern. Because the Upper Kern is free flowing, it means we typically have an earlier and shorter rafting season compared to the Lower Kern. Due to our outstanding snowpack though, our 2017 Upper Kern season is now open to book all the way through July.
