Buena Vista Campground
Buena Vista Campground is in Kern County's popular Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Area, 25 miles southwest of Bakersfield and only a couple of miles off Interstate 5. The park's main attractions are 86-acre Lake Evans and 998-acre Lake Webb. Lake Evans is designated for sailing, fishing, and a maximum of 5-MPH boating. Lake Webb is a favorite for boating, jet skiing, waterskiing, and fishing. Swimming is allowed in posted swim lagoons.
Buena Vista Campground features 112 campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents on a peninsula near the Lake Webb marina. A number of the sites are lake-front. All the campsites are pull-though with space for up to 2 recreational vehicles per site. Only one vehicle, however, may be connected to the electrical hook-ups at any one time. Multiple tents may be erected as long as they are within the campsite boundaries.
Overflow camping for one motor vehicle is available when needed in specified areas for $6 per night. Group campsite reservations can be made in the off-peak season only (October 16 - March 14) and when reserving 10 or more campsites at one time. Fees for groups are $8 per site.
