Kernville is an ideal place for fun and safe Kern River Rafting in California. This natural waterway runs right through the middle of this quaint western town and is one of the most easily accessible waterways in the world.

Fed by Mt. Whitney’s snow melt, the water then passes through the scenic Sequoia National Forest.  Here meanders the only major waterway in the Sierra Nevada mountains that flows from North to South. It drains out just northeast of Bakersfield.
