Troop 358 from San Marino California, can't say enough good words about the Camping Grounds or the Mountain Biking or Whitewater River Rafting experience we had. The guides on the MB and WRR are fantastic. Gave excellent directions to our Scouts on what they needed to know and what not to do (not that they all listen!), for them not to get any injuries and how to stay in the Boats, but also made it so that our experience was FANTASTIC. The Camp Grounds, ARE THE BEST. Robin who takes care of the grounds, goes above and beyond to make sure each site is taken care of and watches over everyone. She helps you in letting you know where to go get supplies you may have forgotten, she advises on things in the area and the bathrooms are ALWAYS clean, stocked and taken care of. You always have HOT water for cleaning dishes and showers. Robin is the BEST, all of our Scouts just love her and so do the Adults.. We have been coming back to MRA for years now and will continue to.

Our MRA vacation was outstanding!! We camped all four nights in their super well kept campground, which is located right on the Kern River, no traffic sounds, only the sounds of rushing water. The camp hostess (Robin) is super friendly and helpful - firewood and ice are available onsite too. Making all of our reservations and coordinating our trip was a super easy working with Mallory. Our river guide, Scott, was extremely knowledgeable about the river and entertaining too. There's no better way to see the Kern River than on a kayak or raft. We used the kayak as a warm-up to the raft. We can't wait to go back! Next time we want to try Class V rapids with their overnnight stays. They offer so many other activities too (Stand Up Paddling, Mountain Biking, Hiking). I know I'll be recommending Mountain & River Adventures to my family and friends!

Likes: Office staff (Mallory) & rafting guides (particularly Brian - 6 man rafts A.M. & Logan, kayaks P.M.) were great. Attentive, friendly, professional, determined to show us a good time. Dislikes were not things anyone could have helped. This year the Sierra snow pack is minimal, the Kern is running low and river conditions are not optimal. Also one of the MRA transport buses broke down and created a delay & scramble after lunch for the remaining vehicles. No one's fault. But both our kids said they had a much better time rafting the South Fork of the American River a few years back, especially because there was a much longer run before having to haul out, drive back upriver and put in again. The advantange of Kernville lies in its close proximity to our home (3 hour drive as opposed to 6.) Overall, worth doing but wait for a year with better river conditions.

My experience was not that good because the instructor (Jeniffer) given to us was not trained enough. She was not aware of the route to follow and was not able to guide us properly on how to navigate. Seems like it was her first day like us. At last we ended up navigating her to the final spot. We could see other instructor doing really well with their teams. So just make sure you get a trained instructor specially if it is your first rafting experience. Otherwise it is fun!

When looking for a location to do some teambuilding, I stumbled across Mountain River Adventures and I'm glad I did. From the first phone call to the execution of our activities, the staff worked hard to make sure we had a great experience. They listened to what we were looking to accomplish, provided suggestions and even partnered with other businesses in the area to help us put a complete package together. What a great team and a great experience!

We had a wonderful time. It was so much fun! This was our first time rafting and kayaking. Our guides were great as well. It was a little scary getting used to steering, all the rocks and all the water but we got used to it by the end of the first run. We went twice down the river. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a real adventure.

My family had a vacation during the last weekend of June 2012 at Kern river area. We wanted rafting but we got there late so rode kayak instead. The guides' instruction was clear and easy to understand. It was really fun. My life jacket had some smell of mold or sweat . I brought my own water shoes which helped me a lot when I pushed the kayak in the water. I recommend everyone to bring their own water shoes because the river bottom is full of pebbles. You can rent the water shoes from the store as well. I'll go there again next season.

I can not say enough about this place while I'm at work. I rent cars, and when ever I hear about a family going camping, I bring up my trip to Kern River and my rafting trip with Mountain River Adventures. My first encounter with the ladies at the counter made me feel so welcomed and ready to raft, that I signed my family right up. When we got there, the wait was not that long and they coached you on the way up. This trip was AMAZING!!! The guide Austin was friendly and fun, the drops were heart stoppoing. This is diffenitly a great place to go. For a first time family, we can't wait to go back and do it again. This place will always be a family trip once a year, if not more!!

Wow! I can't say enough great things about MRA. We camped the first night in their campground that is located right on the Kern River. You can fall asleep under the stars to the sounds of rushing water. Sure beats the sounds of traffic! The staff was extremely welcoming and helped us with all our needs. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean and they have someone on site to help you. Such a relief if you need something, like firewood, ice, etc. The next day we woke up made food and headed into town to meet up with our river guide. Jim was extremely knowledgeable about the river and rafting in general. Some people in my group were a little weary about rafting the day before, but after meeting Jim and the MRA crew all those worries went out the door. Kernville has some of the best scenery California has to offer and what better way to see it than on a raft going down the river. When the trip had finished they set us up with hi rez pics so we could share our adventure with our friends and family. I can't wait to go back! Next time I want to try Class V rapids. They offer so many other activities to do (Stand Up Paddling, Mountain Biking, Hiking) that I know I will be coming back to Mountain River Adventures over and over again.

I have brought several scout troops to Mountain River Adventures. The 1/2 day white water rafting is fun for kids and adults. We've also done the 1/2 day downhill moutain biking. The guides from Mountain River Adventures are great. They've given us some great memories.
