Walker Basin is an isolated unincorporated community and valley in the Southern Sierra Nevada, in Kern County, California.


The valley and community of Walker Basin are located south of Lake Isabella and the Kern River Valley, east of Bakersfield, and north of Tehachapi Pass, near the southern boundary of the Sequoia National Forest

The valley is framed by Breckenridge Mountain at 7,548 feet (2,301 m) on the west side and Piute Mountain on the east. The community of Havilah is to the north up a canyon, and the communities of Fig Orchard and Millersville are to the south over a ridge.


Walker Basin was named for Joseph Reddeford Walker, a pioneer in the area.
