Lower Kern River Map
near Bakersfield, Ca.
This portion of the Kern River extends from the Lower Richbar picnic area to Hart Park. Although the Kern River is considered to be a navigable waterway, only a small portion can be safely used by rafters. This 20-mile stretch of the Kern offers a wide variety of fishing from nighttime catfishing to topwater smallmouth action. Lake Ming and Hart Park are just a few miles from Bakersfield along this lower portion and offer some fine picnicking, swimming, boating, and camping.
