A family campground, Kamp Kennerdell has 43 campsites available. Four of them are ‘primitive’ for tents only, and do not have electric. The campground is divided into three areas, Cliffside, Pine Hill Run, and the Twin Chimney area. Campsites are private, rustic, and are not close to each other like in most other campgrounds. On our property, you will find recreational trails for ATV riding, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking. Beautiful Pine Hill Run flows through the campground and the Allegheny River is nearby for swimming, fishing, and canoeing. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a leash.
“It’s like having your own piece of the forest”, year round camper Lisa explained. Regulars Tim and Ashley, from the Pittsburgh area, have moss covered rocks at their campsite. They like to relax and hang out in their hammocks and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
Campground Managers Jim and Tammy Watson are pleased with the improvements they’ve been able to accomplish since they came on two years ago. Jim reports, “We’ve built a bridge, upgraded our roads and trails, and added a play area for the children.” Says Tammy, “In 2014, we kicked off a Social Media Campaign with the help of Holly Gibbons, so now you can visit us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for postings about what we will be offering in the upcoming season.”
The Watsons have ambitious plans for the future as they begin their third season at Kamp Kennerdell, “We want to add more primitive sites, more road improvements, a second play area for children and even build a pavilion.” Tammy is also planning to offer a few more activities and workshops throughout the season.
Kamp Kennerdell is open year round. You’ll find rate information, photos and directions to find them on our website at www.kampkennerdell.com. Jim and Tammy agree, “We are looking into better signage for the camp, including into all our Phases. We’re excited about continuing fun community activities and making new friends along the way. Most of our campers are out-of-towners who just come to get away from the ‘city life. They love the rustic campground and all that nature has to offer.”
