Inyokern Reviews

Inyokern is a very nice town which is spread out wide in the desert of the High Desert in California. It has an awesome store and gas station and also now a burger joint that seems to be doing well. I think it would be nice to have a park located near the burger joint or across from it, so that visitors and town people may enjoy lunch and relaxation outside. It should also have a pet area so that travelers can take their pets out of vehicles and feel comfortable taking a break from their travel. It would be nice to get the word out if this happened and it would more than likely be quite popular being out in the middle of the desert in the middle of many traveling families.

Inyokern is a very small town. It would be helpful if it had its own super market and possibly a fast food place. The elementary and preschool here are great.
