A few weeks ago I took my wife Leslie and dog Zeus camping in Kern Valley, L05. We took the Cessna 207 from Aces High Aviation which made the trip into a 1.2 hour scenic tour, versus the 3:30 it would take in a car.  There is a camp ground directly on site and we were able to camp about 30′ from the plane.  The Kern River is about a three minute walk from the campground and the lake another ten  minutes.  80′s vintage tuna boat rental cars are available from the new airport manager Rick.

There is a cafe on field that serves enormous hamburgers among other things.  The campground has fire pits, grills and a sun heated shower.  There is also a ton of fallen cottonwood trees nearby for firewood as well as some cut logs stacked to the north of the campsite for fires.
