We spent four days camping at Lake Isabella, which is just east of Bakersfield. We went with the Buchers, the Olsons, and friends of the Buchers from Boy Scouts. We came with high hopes of fishing action, but the lake didn’t yield much. Probably some bad after-effects from a big fire earlier in the year. We did have lots of fun swimming and kayaking in the lake, and cooking marshmallows around the campfire.
High winds and lots of flies make this camping site one to avoid in the future.
