We never stayed at this campground,
preferring Trona Pinnacles or Breckenridge
Campground, but Walker Pass Campground
is nice. There are some great views and
interesting history with some hidden secrets...

How do they get water to the hydrants in
Walker Pass Campground? It's not easy.
A large generator must be hauled from
Bakersfield to power a pump that supplies
a water storage tank. The pump must operate
for three hours to fill 850 gallons. That amount
usually lasts only about 2 weeks. Please use only
what you need.

If campground is dry, water located 1.8 miles west
Hwy.178 at Cane Brake Creek. Filter is needed.

Drinking water at Paradise Cove Campground.
Hwy 178, about 4 miles east of Lake Isabella
Showers $.50 / 4 minutes
Paradise Cove is a city person's campground.
It's nice... and there are some good photos.

Walker Pass elevation is 5245'
