What to Bring on a Rafting Trip

People joining us on our overnight Lower Kern rafting trips often ask us what they should bring with them.  We recommend:

- a sleeping bag or bedding 
- small flashlight
- swimsuit or shorts
- sunscreen and lip protection
- sneakers or river sandals with secure straps to wear in the boat
- dry sneakers for camp
- sunglasses with a strap
- jacket or sweatshirt
- water bottle
- towel
- hat or visor 
Optional items would include:
- guitar or other musical instruments
- games
- fishing rod and license. 
The Kern River Valley is hot and dry in the summer months. A light change of clothes and a sweatshirt are usually sufficient for camp. Tents are normally not necessary for comfortable sleeping but you are welcome to bring one.
We expect to have a great 2009 Lower Kern season, with trips beginning in late May and extending into the middle of August.  
We look forward to seeing you on the river.
