Tulare County Profile

 
About this area:
Tulare County is located in the San Joaquin Valley, near the geographic center of California. Fresno borders to the north, Inyo to the east, Kern to the south, and Kings borders to the west. Although primarily an agricultural county, almost half of Tulare's area is devoted to national parks and forests, including the popular Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, and Inyo and Sequoia National Forests. These natural resources, among others, provide year-round recreational opportunities.
