Description: To access KR3, take Sierra Way about a mile north from Kernville. Veer left onto an access road as you pass Camp Owens, following it for about half a mile. The pull out is the large dirt lot marked by cottonwoods with portable bathrooms on the northern end of the lot.
As a Take Out: There is an option for people to take out at an access point that is much closer to the powerhouse than the put-in location. This is a small eddy about 120 yards downstream from the actual powerhouse and makes for an easier carry. If this is missed or can’t be found, it is a short float to the main site.
As a Put-In: This site is very popular on the weekends as it provides direct access to the Lickity Split run into town. The short carry to the water makes this put-in quick and easy. Be ready to run as soon as your boats hit the water otherwise you might find yourself swarmed by a couple of rafting companies at once.
