Kern Plateau Dispersed Camping Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"For many, the open camping experience of the Kern Plateau is tent camping as it should be, especially for hunters, anglers, hikers, 4x4 enthusiasts, and oﬀ-road motorcyclists. Most often referred to as Kennedy Meadows, this unspoiled high-sierra plateau boasts acres of granite outcroppings, tall redwood trees, and pristine green meadows.
Think of it as Yosemite Valley without the excess bureaucracy. It should be noted that there are formal, maintained campgrounds located in the area with facilities—Kennedy Meadows, Troy Meadow, Horse Meadow, and Fish Creek Campgrounds—but that’s not what this is all about. For more information on these campgrounds, visit the U.S. Forest Service website at www.fs.usda.gov/sequoia"
