What are others saying?

     ​Love this place.  Clean and well run.  Great for families.   I do not like to camp and even I can't wait  for the next trip.  The river is great,               grocery and restaurants very close.  Well run, located, and maintained.

     ​Talk about 5 star camping. Wifi, water/cable/elect hook-ups and best of all CLEAN restrooms & showers.  ​Just returned from a 2 week          stay.  Spacious full hook-up site, nicely landscaped.  Grounds crew working hard every day.  Pride of ownership shows.  Office sold ice,            ice cream bars, water shoes, water tubes and some fishing gear/bait.  I especially loved the fish cleaning station; big sink with a garbage disposal!  Quiet before 10 p.m.  No nonsense tolerated at this park.  We will definitely come back.

​    We have never camped on the Kern River before but when I found Camp James online I could not wait to go. We just got back from our           camping trip at Camp James and the great reviews on this place could not be more right. The staff is so friendly, the nice lady at check in even offered us another campsite that was so beautiful. The bathrooms are clean, the sites were spotless, and it is so quiet and peaceful.   We are already planning our next trip. If you want a quiet, family, or couple get away Camp James is the perfect place. If you are looking more for a large group or party site this probably wouldn't be what you are looking for.

​      Love, love, love this place. First time there. Donna was a gem!   Thank you Donna :) the grounds are beautiful, clean, and many sites                            right on the water.  We appreciated the fact that after 10pm is quiet time.  We are already planning on return trip.                                                                        Thank you for such a wonderful stay.
