There are several roads that lead into the Lake Isabella recreation area, some are better than others. Campbase traveled to Lake Isabella on Highway 178 from Bakersfield. This is a very difficult, narrow, and winding highway for large RV's. While cars may travel the highway easily, the overhanging rocks and sharp corners are difficult for larger RV's. One of the turns is just 15 MPH. There are approximately 15 miles of winding road. Speeds are low on this stretch of the highway however, pull outs are available. Highway 178 leads right to the lake.
Campbase departed Lake Isabella on Highway 178 going east towards Mojave and Indian Wells. The road is in good shape and average speeds are approximately 55 MPH. There are no rock overhangs and most RV's have no trouble with this section of highway.
The Calente/Bodfish highway runs between Lake Isabella and the small town of Calente near highway 58. Campbase has not traveled on this highway however, it looks to be very winding and not well suited for large RV's.
