Huntington Lake Overnight Camp
Horseback Overnight Pack Trip
What better way to explore the wilderness that surrounds Kennolyn than on an horseback overnight pack trip? We have contracted with D and F Packstation who have been leading pack trips for generations in the Huntington Lake area. Two of their wranglers lead our group of 9 campers and one counselor on horseback followed by a string of mules with all the gear. This 24 hour trip climbs up to the high mountain meadows and lakes and returns the following day in time for lunch.
Campers enjoy the unforgettable views on a peak halfway between Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks where you really feel like you are on top of the world. Once at one of the crystal clear lakes, campers can fish, take a swim, explore, or just hang out amongst the lovely trees, streams, meadows and wildflowers, birds and butterflies. Our guides pull mules with tents, cooking gear, and all the yummy food that makes this a truly classic experience.
Trips are scheduled after the first four days of each session to make sure campers won’t miss out on any of the major activities. We provide needed equipment but campers are welcome to bring their own boots and helmet if they prefer. The Pack Trip is an additional $385 and space is limited. For those that are not sure if they want to do the trip, families can “pre-approve” the fee and if a space is available and the camper is willing, we will take them along. The Pack Trip fee would be collected then after the trip. Sign-ups are through the registration process or just by contacting camp.
