Forests, mountains, and waterfalls, oh my! At Goldledge Campground, you and your favorite four-legged friend can enjoy these stunning natural features and so much more. The campground itself has all the basic amenities campers need to "ruff" it in the great outdoors.
Don't expect to find any fancy mod-cons at Goldledge; vault toilets and drinking water are the extent of the amenities you'll find here, aside from picnic tables and campfire rings. Some of the sites are hike-in and tent-only, so keep that in mind if you're planning to stay in an RV. The maximum vehicle length is 30 feet, which means this campground isn't suitable for big rigs.
At Goldledge Campground, hikers and anglers are in the pawfect position to trek the trails of the Sequoia National Forest and try their hand at catching dinner in the Kern River. Looking to spend most of your vacation on the water instead of around it? Kern River is a furrific choice for kayakers and rafters, but be warned — these swift rapids aren't for the inexperienced! This is one reason why swimming isn't recommended here.
If you do want to dip your toes (or paws) in the water, there's a swimming beach right on-site where you can chill out and enjoy your riverside getaway. It's unclear whether pets are allowed on the swimming beach, though — best to check with the ranger station that manages the campground.
Speaking of pets, Fido is more than welcome to join you on your camping trip, so long as you keep them on a six-foot leash and never leave them unattended. This is a natural area that's home to potentially dangerous wildlife, which is why it's extra important that you bring waste bags to clean up after your buddy!
Rates to stay at Goldledge Campground start at just $28 per night, but be aware that there's an additional $2 surcharge on holiday weekends.
