Visiting Santa Cruz

When you visit Kennolyn Camps in the Santa Cruz Mountains, you can plan to spend the day, or even the weekend, in beautiful Santa Cruz. The area offers spectacular beaches, mountains, boating, hiking, camping, sports and recreation, winery tours and a myriad of family-friendly adventures, including viewing elephant seals at Ano Nuevo State, and visiting the Boardwalk. 45 minutes south you can explore the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and tour Carmel’s scenic 17 Mile Drive.

Visit for links to lodging, dining, and events all over Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay area.

Visiting Huntington Lake

Our camp at Huntington Lake is only open seasonally. Do not attempt to drive there without contacting us first. We may not be there AND during Winter, the road may be impassable. When you do visit Kennolyn Camps on Huntington Lake, you can take some time to access the wide variety of adventures available in the Sierra National Forest. Our camp is situated in the town of Lakeshore with excellent camping options, some vacation rentals, and a couple of lakeside resorts. More lodging options are available in nearby Shaver Lake.
