    Used to have good luck shoveling into a Bazooka Box in the Kern River across from Hart Park in Bakersfield. Approached from Round Mountain Road side of river. Between river bank and island. Other guys had good luck from the Hart Park side.Click image for larger version.

    There are several easy to access places near the mouth and right into the canyon a little ways up. A day use area and campground. There are claims though.

    More access when you get up by Isabella up by the hot springs. Look out for claims there as well.

    On the Kern River there are only two "public" mining areas, Hart Park outside of Bakersfield, the Keysville Public Mining area up off 155 NW of the town of Lake Isabella.

    The river is running real high right now so finding spots to put a sluice in are going to be tough to find. One of the easier areas to explore right now would be Hogeye Gulch in Keysville, though the parts north/west of Keysville Rd are claimed up, the area south and east of the road is in the public mining area.

    The Kern County Prospectors Club has a claim on the Kern, which is open to their members. They charge $35/yr for membership.

    Just as FYI, a lot of this side has been fenced off now to vehicle traffic, though you are still able to enter on foot, you have to park back by the pavement.
