With the stunning giants of Sequoia National Forest within easy reach, Bakersfield is a great jumping-off point for tent and cabin camping. Look out over California's central San Joaquin Valley from campgrounds in the Los Padres National Forest and the San Emigdio Mountains. At Songdog campsites, drive right up by car or motorcycle for tent camping, or enjoy glamping in a round tent with spectacular views. Ranch camping at My Town Ranch lets you hook up your RV, then enjoy campfires, BBQ and even a saloon on the premises. Bring your large group to watch the sun set into the ocean from a mountaintop stone lodge, while you enjoy cooking outdoors, or book cozy cabins at the forest's edge that let you get away from it all. Camping near Bakersfield in the Sierra Mountains centers around Sequoia National Forest, where you can marvel at the world's oldest trees and giant Sequoias, with redwood branches reaching for the skies. Camp in a lookout tower overlooking the Kern River, and then go wild with river rafting fun. Climbing the Breckenridge Mountain lets you explore the beauty of the wilderness, or bring your horses to Evans Park Campground to seek out new adventures.

Tipi Village
Beloved Jeep and our Tipi for the night. No water on the grounds so we brought our own. I bench set up outside we made a little hand washing station at.
Tipi at midnight, lit by lanterns. We could pull my Jeep right up next to it.
Nearby hidden cliff where mineral springs come out of. Plan is to build a stair way down to tubs.
Inside the Tipi; two beds and a tea pot! Lanterns were ready for us, but with poor battery life, so glad we brought our own. A sea shell for smudging, and some extra TP(though covered in dust).
