16 acres of woods right along the bend of the Allegheny River at Kennerdell, PA are yours to enjoy! We have the best of both worlds- a secluded spot for campfires, hammocks, and hiking, or head down to the river to hang out by the water or kayak! Walk across the bridge to check out great trails in Clear Creek State Forest or drive a few miles Emlenton, Foxburg or Franklin for breweries, wineries, and bike trails. Our favorites: Emlenton- 12 miles: Emlenton Brewhaus, Blue Collar Tavern, Little IT Deli, Allegheny River Bike Trail access Foxburg-16 miles: Foxburg Pizza, Foxburg Wine Cellars, Allegheny Grille, Allegheny River Bike Trail access Franklin- 19 miles: Trails to Ales Brewery,Vino and Vibes, Allegheny River Bike Trail access Pick up the Allegheny River Bike Trail at the end of South Tunnel Rd, about 2 miles down from our location. Sites down at the river are on the flood plain. Setups here are not permanent due to uncertain river heights. Forest sites are uphill. River is accessible with a half mile walk/drive down our drive or via hill stairs. Cell phone service is weak to nonexistent in much of the property, so be prepared to go offline and relax!

Beautiful camp site!
Mike and Kara (and Piper🐶) were amazing hosts! They made sure we had everything we needed, provided a walkie talkie incase we had to get ahold of them, left a s’mores kit for us and brought hot coffee in the morning. The property is gorgeous and the perfect place to disconnect! Highly recommend booking this campsite and we will be return visitors for certain!

Better than we even hoped!
This was a great first experience with hipcamp. Mike and Kara were great to work with with. They were super communicative and flexible. The site exceeded expectations! They have a beautiful spot by the river with solar powered lights and it’s all easily accessible. We took our 8 month old with us for his first camping trip. It was a big hit with the little guy!

Beautiful rustic river location!
Our experience was great. Kara and Mike were very helpful and communicated well. We decided to set up camp on the pebble beach on the banks of the Allegheny River (we had inflatable pads and sleeping bags). The site offered unparalleled views of nature and we saw many birds and other river wildlife. One evening after we made our campfire, we watched the moon rise over the hills. And nothing like early morning coffee while watching the mist on the river. The water was shallow enough to wade into, fish and swim. Optional kayak rental was very nice to have. And so was the complimentary firewood! The site we chose is being improved and it is a bit of a hike to the campsite, including stairs. We did bring our own water and chairs in addition to car camping equipment. The site had solar lights available as well as power to charge phones, which was a nice surprise. We hiked across the bridge through town and up to Dennison Point as our only outing. Wish we had another day to explore the neighboring towns. For reference, we are a family of four with two boys (13 and 10). In summary, if you have a sense of adventure, and are looking for a wonderful rustic location in nature, this site is for you. We look forward to coming back.
