Kernville Travel Guide

The mountain town of Kernville in the southern Sierra Nevada sits upstream of Lake Isabella. There is an interesting history to Kernville, the town used to be located where the Lake currently is, but the government relocated it when they built the dam. History was not lost, as current downtown Kernville retained historic buildings and still has a distinct Old West/Gold Rush vibe along with incredible natural scenery and outdoor activities available.

Things to Do in Kernville

Kernville is a top destination for outdoor thrill seekers with river rapids perfect for white water rafting. There are rapids here for all levels along the stretch of Upper Kern river, running through town.Kayaking tours and lessons are also popular and Stand Up Paddle Boards available for cruising the calmer waters of the lake. Fishing is also available here with fly fishing being most popular, although reel fishing for rainbow trout is also available in the gentler part of the river near town.

Follow the Trail of 100 Giants (300 plus acres of giant redwood sequoia forest) some are nearly 2,000 years old. The trail is wonderful for hikes and wandering among these majestic beauties.

Relive yesteryear and visit the Silver City Ghost Town in Bodfish where you can tour old saloons, jail cells and ruined structures said to be visited by ghosts. Kernville's legacy as a gold mining town still attracts tourists and you can visit the mining district of nearby Keyesville and try your hand at panning for gold. lver City Ghost Town in Bodfish, which has been featured on these shows, is a sight to see.

Best Time to Visit Kernville

Summer is busy here due to the popularity of water sports but nature and mountain lovers will appreciate the area off season too. Every February, the Whiskey Flat Days festival takes place, an annual 4 day event bringing Wild West history back to the present with re-enactments and 19th century encampment (frog jumping contest anyone?!) In September the town celebrates the Kern River Rock N Blues Festival, so music lovers may prefer this time of year.
