Sandy Flat Campground
Sandy Flat Campground sits along the Kern River in the Sequoia National Forest. The campground is 6½ miles downstream from the Lake Isabella dam. Visitors to the campground enjoy wading (when water levels are safe), fishing, and whitewater rafting in the Kern River. Nearby Lake Isabella has boating, waterskiing, windsurfing, and fishing. The Kern River canyon can be quite hot in the summer.
Sandy Flat Campground has 35 campsites. Among them are 6 walk-in, tent sites. The rest can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Campsites are arranged in a single loop in mainly open sites. Those by the river appear to be the nicest. Some boulders are scattered throughout the campground. River access is best from the day use area.
