Upper Kern River rafting season extended – again

The Upper Kern is experiencing it’s longest season in decades – make sure you get to experience it!


We did it again – extended our Upper Kern season. In a normal operating year, the Upper Kern completes its course by mid to late June. With ‘Big Water 2017’ though, we’re eyeing mid-August before we switch our entire focus onto our Lower Kern section of the river.

The Upper Kern offers our most popular day trip, the Full Day Upper Kern. Our afternoon Half Day is also a great fit for those getting into town late and want to sneak in a few laps before enjoying the rest of Kernville.
