To Our Valued Customers & Campers,

Kern County Parks and Recreation will be making some construction improvements to Buena Vista Campground beginning October 30, 2017 through mid-January 2018.  The improvements will include a basketball court near the Tot Lot bordering campsites 99-106, and installation of soccer goals at the field near the main launch ramp. 

As a result, there will be some construction noise, and we ask for your kind cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. There will be no construction done on weekends and holidays.
