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 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 1/21/2021. No changes have been issued or reported since then, however, always check with the campground to confirm.
Please note that two Sequoia National Forest campgrounds are available to book online, however, I spoke with the Forest Service and they told me they are calling and cancelling people and are unable to update recreation.gov to reflect the closures. These two campsites are French Gulch and Camp Nine.
