Kernville is an ideal place for fun and safe Kern River Tubing in Southern California. The Kern River runs right through the middle of this quaint western town and is one of the most easily accessible rivers in the world.

The Kern River is fed by Mt. Whitney’s snow melt.  The water then passes through the scenic Sequoia National Forest. This is the only major river in the Sierra Nevada mountains that flows from North to South. It drains out just northeast of Bakersfield.

SoCal’s Kern River Tubing and rafting trips take place just north of historic Kernville, Ca.  There are  many different sections of the river available for recreation.  Kern River is Southern California’s ideal place for fun in the water.  Activities include whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, camping and fishing.  When it comes to Kern River tube rentals and guided tours, SoCal is a pioneer in innovative river activities!
