Please note; YMCA Camp Kern is not a traditional 'camp ground' and can not typically accommodate RV's or tent camping and we usually do not rent out individual cabins, as they are being used by our groups or campers. Please contact our Group Rentals Department for our rental options.

If you are looking for a more traditional campground, we recommend Morgan's Campground, located just 5 minutes from YMCA Camp Kern.
