2021 Kern River Camping: What’s open and closed right now
Sequoia National Forest has issued a number of different Kern river camping closures due to COVID (public safety) and seasonal availability. This list will be updated as Kern River campgrounds come back online or as new closures go into effect. Keep in mind, that many, if not all, privately-owned campgrounds remain open and those are listed here.

THIS PAGE WAS LAST UPDATED ON 2/2/2021 and now that CA has eased restrictions won’t be updated as frequently.
Email received from the USFS on 1/26: “In light of California ending the Regional Stay at Home Order, the Forest Service Regional Office lifted their campground closure Order. The Sequoia NF will be revoking the camping and day use restrictions tomorrow, and we will be opening up the campgrounds and removing signs in the coming days.”
