Kettleman City Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 13 photos

El Camino Viejo Camp was located at the mouth of El Arroyo de las Garzas and this was where Dave Kettleman made this his home in 1860 and started a ranch where he raised cattle and sheep. A land developer A. Manford Brown founded the city 1929, when the post office was established. The branch library was established in 1930. Although the town is still very small, it still thrives with having access to the Interstate 5.

Most would think there is no city here, but there is north of all the fast food establishments. Kettleman City is known for a travelers stop along Interstate 5. There are many places to get gas, food, or to just relax.

    I'm like you and enjoy lunch in a park. That one looks lovely with all those shady trees.

    Another place that is good to know about while traveling in the area. Love all the small, unknown areas that you present so well.

    Dee, Love going to eat at Mike's Roadhouse Cafe. The toy push cars on the walls is something to behold. The chicken fried steak is yummy and the gravy is um, um, good.

    This looks like a nice place to stop for a bite to eat, and enjoy the park. Great idea to have a bit of a picnic. It is much cooler in the shade.
