On a hill overlooking the Kern River Valley and Lake Isabella. The town of Lake Isabella is only 5 minutes drive away. The lower kern and the lake are about 10 minutes. Off the main road 6/10ths of a mile, but 1/2 is a rough dirt road. The driveway is paved but steep. There is parking in "the back 40" for up to 2 RV's 35'. This is a dog property with no fencing. All pets welcome. There are kennels if needed. Behind the property is the Piute mountains. The kern valley offers hiking, white water rafting, antiquing, fishing, hunting, boating and much more.
House rules? Dogs rule! Don't mind the coyote, they're fun to chase.
Rim Road is partially paved for 3/10ths of a mile. The next 3/10ths is dirt pothole filled and sometimes better than others. Just go slow. The driveway is cement. If you back up the driveway you will drive forward to the "back 40". If you turn to drive up the driveway forward you will need to back straight and flat to the "back 40". You cannot turn an RV around once you start up the driveway. If you pass the driveway to the next curve you can turn around as the road splits there.
There are a few options.

We arrived a day later than expected but were warmly welcomed by the friendliest of dogs followed by their just as friendly owners. No sooner had we exited our vehicle and a cold beer was placed in our hands (it's was a hot day), and great evening on the deck overlooking that magnificent vista followed. Thank you & best wishes in your upcoming move.
Glen and Carrie are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed good conversation with them and they were respectful of our privacy. Highly recommended!
We arrived after a long day of driving but were greated warmly and had great conversations with Glen and Kerry. They opened up there homes to us and made us feel like family. Wish we could stay longer!
What a great stay. As othets have said driveway is steep but take your time it's worth the view of the lake.thete are Golden Retrievers on property and they are all sweet and well behaved. My propne stove was having problems and our hosts were so helpful and allowed me to use their RV stove. They also let us use their fire pit and even gave us firewood. Our hosts took the time for great conversation but were also respectful of our privacy. I highly recommend this hiden gem and will be coming back.
We stayed with Kerry for what was planned to be one night and was extended to three nights at the end of November 2017. We were passing between Sequoia National Park and Death Valley, this location was a perfect mid point. We figured we would stay one night and keep going, but we loved exploring the area and we had a great time chatting with Kerry and Glen, and meeting their awesome dogs. We were invited in to do laundry, have showers and catch some NFL on tv. We made great friends with our hosts!
Our dogs had a wonderful time there too, and they miss the ginger retriever, KC, the most because he was the same colour as them and made wonderful furrrrrrriends.
The driveway is STEEP but it is easy to navigate, take Kerry's advice, walk it first, determine your approach and then go for it.
We would stay again should we roll that way in the future!

We stayed three nights at this boondocker location. Friendly, helpful, welcoming, and offered laundry. We only plugged to watch a movie but did fill our water tank before leaving. We got to be good friends with the dogs and had fresh eggs for breakfast. Shared pizza and wine one night as well. Would highly recommend this host!
We're on the road full time and Shefferk made us feel right at home allowing us a hot shower and a couple loads of laundry. The hospitality didn't stop there. We shared some drinks and had a great time getting to know them. Hope to see these guys again when they make it to Florida!! And all the dogs better come too!! ;)
Stayed recently with Shefferk for our very first Boondockers Welcome experience.
Couldn't have gone better. She is a lovely person who went out of her way to make us welcome, the spot to park our rig was great, even ran a power cord out for us so we could hook up. Highly recommended.
thank you very much for your warm welcome
we were very happy and lucky to spend a night near your nice home
