Huntington Lake Overnight Camp

Overnight Pack Ride

What better way to explore the wilderness that surrounds Kennolyn? We have contracted with D and F Packstation at Huntington Lake who have been leading horseback riding trips for many years. They know the trails, have the horses, mules, tents, cooking gear and send two experienced wranglers to lead our group. We will also send one of our counselors along with a group of up to 9 campers. This trip is not for the beginner rider. It is a 24 hour trip where we head out mid-morning, climb up to the high mountain meadows and lakes, spend the night, and then return the following day in time for lunch.

This 8.5 mile trail climbs almost 2000 feet from Huntington Lake to Nellie Lake. 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 this crystal clear lake, 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 good that makes this a truly classic experience.

Trips are scheduled after the first four days of each session. We provide needed equipment but campers are welcome to bring their own boots and helmet if they prefer. The Pack Trip is an additional $375 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.
