This is our second year staying at Camp James (KRS). It is a small campground right on the river. Some sites have full hookups and the most beautiful sites do not have an on site dump. (There is one on the property.) We loved sitting at the river edge watching the rushing water go by. It's walking distance to the...

We have camped many times in Camp James but this time we decided to rent a cabin as kids coming for weekend. The cabins are awesome, so beautiful on inside and views outside are amazing. Cabins are nicely appointed and so comfy. King size bedroom was so comfortable with own flatscreen which hubby appreciated. The cabin was spotless and kitchen...

This was our first time at this RV park. We have traveled all over the US, but have never been treated so badly. Beautiful grounds, but very rude staff. We certainly know camp rules, especially quiet after 10 pm. We will not be back any time soon. The owners need a bit more knowledge of customer service.

This was my first time to the Kern River and Camp James. I can't wait to go back. This is probably the BEST well kept and maintained campground I have ever been to. We stayed in the up sites with full hookups so we were away from the water, but we could see and hear it. I would say the...

This is a great campground. The place is spotless, and the staff worked hard the whole time we were there to get everything ready for the big weekend coming up. Friendly folks and a location that can't be beat. However, the price you have to pay for all this is out of my league. I have camped all over the...

Very disappointed in the treatment we witnessed towards our friends from what we believed was staff; "disappointed" is an understatement when we were informed "staff" was the owner himself. We camped with a group of 6 families for the thanksgiving holiday. 10:00 curfew STRICTLY enforced. Shortly after 10:00 there were 6-8 of us around the campfire, no music. Host/owner approached,...

We had a beautiful RV site on the Kern River with cool evening breezes. Bathroom facilities had clean showers (coin operated) and electrical outlet for hairdryer. Mix of families and adult campers. Campers were quiet after "lights out" time. Reasonable pricing. Market and gas stations close by.

We were one of five trailers. This is an annual family event but the first time for my husband and I to attend. We actually rented one of their trailers 29' and it was plenty of room for the two of us. It would hold a family of four comfortably. It was a beautiful weekend. We were just a few...

Stayed for two nights with RV in August with 3 kids. Must say owners do a great job keeping the sites clean. Our site had double booking when we arrived but lady at reception looked for a place closer to the river. Overall very pleasant experience in Kernville, would recommend.

What a great campground right on the Kern River! The campground has RV sites with full hookups to tent only sites - there aren't any full hookup sites right next to the river though. We were in site 62 (electric, water, and cable) - while it was not right on the river it had a small stream running right behind...

“Sites on the water are fabulous, but if you don't like the sound of rushing water, take a site on a stream or back in the full hookup area.”
