Description

Looking for a little R and R with your pals? On the banks of the fast-moving Kerns River, Chico Flat Campground is located on the tree-lined shores in an otherwise dry and dusty landscape. The river will keep you chill and the fabulously primitive campground will keep you wild. Free dispersed camping is allowed here for up to 14 days. Be prepared to filter your own water and pack out your trash.
