We’ll just say this. The best swimming hole ever, just steps from your campsite. Fishing, kayaking, and big shady trees that sway gently in the summer breeze. Walk-in tent sites that offer lots of privacy. Wanna be awesome? After you set up for the weekend, treat your friends to a rafting trip down the Kern. End the day grillin’ and chillin’ as the sun goes down. You won’t forget it.

Hobo Campground is currently closed to overnight camping as many of the sites are under water. Gate is locked and no host. Looks like its been closed for a long time. The day use area is open.
