Lake Isabella has a good variety of campgrounds, most on the western side of the lake. There are also several fine RV Resorts, especially up the Kern River Canyon around Kernville. Nestled around the Lake are 8 developed campgrounds offering more than 800 family units and 6 group areas. All of the campgrounds have flush toilets, showers, fishing cleaning facilities, and other amenities.
Several campgrounds located in the surrounding Sequoia National Forest are within easy driving distance of Lake Isabella. The campgrounds operate under a concessionaire program with California Land Management. Most of the campsites can be reserved. Reservations can be made for the developed fee campsites by calling National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS) at 877-444-6777 (TDD 877-833-6777), at least 5 days prior to your arrival. A certain percentage of campsites also operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Group sites require reservations through NRRS.
Golden Age and Golden Access Passports are accepted at these U.S. Forest Service campgrounds, and entitle the card holder to a 50% discount on federal use fees. Group areas are excluded from this discount.
