About the Kern River Valley
The Kern River Valley is located in the Southern Sierra Mountains, meeting at the North and South Forks of the Wild and Scenic Kern River. Five of the six major bioregions in the State of California merge here in the Kern River Valley, making our area one of nature's most diverse habitats. The combination of unusual landscapes, pristine wilderness areas, diverse animal & bird population, plus the friendliness of the locals; make this Valley a must-see destination for all!
Weather: we are located in high desert country. Even though we are in the mountains, the Kern River Valley is usually warmer than you expect (except during winter months).
