Great hosts, great location!
Bill and Robin are fantastic hosts. Very friendly and accommodating; let me play music a bit loud during the day and quietly at night. The location itself is very very beautiful... I would call it high desert peace. Great place to star gaze and explore the Kern river valley.
Beautiful views and comfortable
The campsite was great and the juniper is great shade in the latter part of the day! The site is just big enough for two tents and the fire pit was great for cooking! Also who can forget about belle the pup coming by each morning to say hi! The amenities (shower & toilet) were great! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Comfortable, relaxing, fun
The three of us had a great time at this quiet and perfectly-size campsite! The compostable toilet and sun shower were our favorite parts-- they were close to the campsite and easy to use! Also, not a far drive to the Kern River, which was a major plus for us! Would recommend bringing some kind of pop-up shade with stakes, as it is pretty sunny and can get breezy.
This hidden gem was the perfect spot for our family! We loved camping under the stars and the beautiful Juniper tree. The amenities (out-house, tiki shower, etc) were very helpful. We would definitely recommend this attention to detail and secluded campsite. Thank you Bill and Robin for your hospitality.
We had an amazing time here and were in great hands. While out on the trails a wind storm took our tent for a ride down the hill and they reduced it for us and set it back up! So amazing! We paid for the garden tour and were invited to harvest some to take home with us! We had everything we could ever need. The road to the site was well marked and maintained. The site itself is laid out in a thoughtful way. The cold showers that were definitely needed were a god send...the shower and toilet were very clean. The juniper tree was really cool and other than that tree it’s just open sky- which made for incredible stargazing. Bill and Robyn were so nice and I would definitely love to come back here to camp and share this place with someone special. This place is like a little oasis/slice of heaven.
This is a wonderful property. We got a flat tire and got our truck stuck, and the hosts came to our rescue. They helped pull our vehicle to a flat spot, then brought some equipment to make our tire change far more simple. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness. The campsite itself is beautiful and well maintained. It has a restroom, fire pit, and shower/hose area that took care of all our needs. We loved the site’s proximity to Lake Isabella and hope to stay here again in the future!
Excellent place to camp in the Kern River valley! Had an outdoor shower and beautiful outhouse next to campsite along with shade provided by juniper tree for tent. Amazing fire grid to build a fire with chairs included. Bill met me upon arrival and was most welcoming. I’d definitely recommend this place
