Welcome to Kern River
Visitor Information Center!
|This site was created
to provide tourist incentives to visit and enjoy the beautiful Kern River
Valley. The area is popular for it's numerous outdoor and recreational
activities, but it's historic and scenic treasures, quaint village antique and
craft shops, and diverse winter playgrounds are one of Southern California's
best kept secrets.
Many of those that visit us on a regular basis during
the peak summer season are not even aware of the numerous major films and
movies that have been created in various locations throughout the valley; the
many gold mines and lumber camps scattered in the surrounding Sierra Mountains;
the colorful history of Whiskey Flat (Kernville) and it's pioneer
families; the strong local indian heritage and ceremonial sites; or the vast
bio-regions and wildlife that flourish along our wild and scenic Kern River and
the shores of Lake Isabella.
It is our mission to encourage you and your
family to visit us and tour these wonderfully historic and exciting locations
during the off-season and less hectic peaceful weekdays. To accomplish this, we
offer a specialty package containing maps, guides, travel information, tour
suggestions, and a wide array of lodging, dining, recreational and adventure
discount coupons. The value of included maps and guides alone are much more
than the token cost of the package.
We hope you will take advantage of
this exciting getaway offer and contact us if you have any questions whatsoever
regarding our area.
