Refund policy

2 day camping trip with rafting on Sunday during the weekend of August 19th - 21st on the Lower Kern. No refunds.  I'm working with a group from California and wanted to share the opportunity.










The plan is to drive up Friday and camp, then hike and lounge by the river on Saturday. Afterwards we'll go back to the campsite for the night to relax and share stories about the day and whatever else. The campsite has a wall for climbing if people are interested.  (Note - If you can't go Friday, then you can drive up anytime Saturday) 


Campsite: "If you come to Kernville to just get away from it all, our campground is a great place to relax. With amenities such as sand and grass volleyball, shuffle board, horseshoe pits and convenient river access to fully relax and enjoy. We also encourage you to  join us in helping to preserve the ecology of the Kern River. "


Rafting : We will start rafting on Sunday morning at 8am. "Our Lower Kern, Class IV river trips are nice, long and continuous river trips. Our Lower Kern run is about twelve miles of river with a series of eight Class IV rapids, which will have your adrenaline pumping all day long. We stop for a freshly prepared deli-style lunch and, if time permits, a stop at the "jump rock" where you can plunge into the river from new heights." Rafting will finish up between 3 and 4pm, which gives everyone plenty of time to get home early Sunday night. This is so much more fun then the class III rafting other groups usually do. Class III runs generally involve a lot of paddling and not much whitewater.  


Cost: This is a full day of class IV rafting on the most popular river in SoCal, but we are getting a nice discount. The reason I have scheduled the rafting on a Sunday is to get the price as low as I can and was also able to negotiate a deal for both camping and rafting. The total price is $194.50/person. You'll need to call the company and pay them directly. Just ask for  Mercedes Kennon @[masked] and use reference#[masked] and my name or the group. Your spot is not guaranteed until you have made your payment to the rafting company.
