Camp Run – Lower Kern

On a fill in basis we offer Camp Run trips on the Lower Kern. These often join a two-day trip in progress. Our camp run is a terrific one-day trip for those seeking an exciting day of whitewater, but reasonable enough for those with less experience. The trip begins in the rugged Kern landscape, beautiful granite rocks, pictographs, and ends with exhilarating, fun whitewater right above our camp.

Starts at: $160 / person
Meet time: 9:30 AM
Return time: Between 3 PM and 5 PM
