If you enjoy camping in the Kern River Valley, there's a new way you can camp.

Four western style covered wagons are coming to the Frandy Park Campground in the Kern River Valley.

These wagons are handmade in Utah and will be headed to the campground before Whiskey Flats Day, officials said Friday.

Two of the handmade wagons will be featured in the Whiskey Flats Day Parade, which is President's Day weekend.

The wagons can sleep up to six people and come with a king size bed, and two double bunk beds.

An even better bonus with these wagons, they come with a heating and air conditioning unit.

Eventually the Frandy Park Campground wants to get at least 20 more wagons if visitors enjoy them.

As of right now, owners of the campground are not sure of how much they will charge for visitors to rent them.

If people would like to rent one of the wagons, call 760-376-6483.
