Hi all Sherry and I are in and staying in campsite 426 for (drumroll) two weeks from the 14th to the 28th. We have not seen many of you for a long time and very much looking forward to the trip.

Robert and Sherry

The reservation office is open at 9 a.m. I'm gonna be all over this like a dirty shirt!
Any specific sites I should shoot for?

Sounds like the river sites (424-440) are full. There will be a few Airstreams over there, and SOB's that book a year out also.

There are a lot of really nice spots. There's "Airstream Row" (441-455) which is all pull throughs. Beaver Pond Creek runs right down the middle of the park and those spots are all nice. Off the creek, 418-423 are really good.

Last year, a bunch of us got stuck at the furthest row in the park, on the main dirt & dusty road by the front gate, but we had a good time. Here's a map and a spot we had on the creek (58 or 59, can't remember) in February during Whisky Flat Days.

Yeah! We've got trailers at 59 and 60, so let's finish filling up the creek!! Then we can all take photo contest winning pictures :-)

Peter, after looking at the map closer, I'm now pretty sure that photo above is actually space 46. BUT those spaces all down the creek are great. 48 & 50 are next to the road, but 51-60, and 113 are maybe the best on the creek and should be a little bigger spaces than 41-48, which you can see are very nice.

Wow, those beavers were hard at work! Is that a recent picture? What site in that in again?
We're really looking forward to the rally! Is anyone else signed up? Last time I checked, we have 3 Airstreams on the creek!

Gee I wonder how that creek got it's name?

She's very active but only in spots that are far away from the RV sites. This park is huge, and very spread out, with the Kern River bordering one side, and smaller creeks that run through out. We've never seen her, just the evidence.
