Guests coming from the east or west will probably travel on Route 80 to Route 15 to Route 45 to Route 235.  Guests coming from the north will probably travel on Route 15.

From the West, East and North:  Find your best route to Route I-80.  Take Exit 210 A, Route 15 South, to Lewisburg.  Stay on Route 15 S for about 7 miles; you will come to the intersection of Routes 15 and 45 at a light.  Turn right onto Route 45 West.  Continue at the * below.

From the South:  Find your best route to Route 15 North.  In Lewisburg, you will come to the intersection of Routes 15 and 45 at a light.  Turn left onto Route 45 West.  Continue at the * below.

(*) Proceed west on Route 45 West for about 17 miles, passing through the towns of Mifflinburg and Hartleton (follow speed limits here).  At the intersection of Route 235 South, turn left.

From this turn, follow signs for 235 South for approximately 3 miles through Laurelton (last chance for food, gas, and ATM) and Glen Iron.  The road makes several 90-degree turns; just before the last one, you will pass the West End Fire Company on your left.

Turn right onto Creek Road at the 4-way intersection past this last 90-degree turn.  Penns Creek should be on your left.  Stay on this road for approximately three miles; you will pass a large 3 story stone house with three arches, on your right, at this point you are about one mile from the Camp.

Just before you cross the bridge over Penns Creek, Penns Creek Campground will be on your right.  Cross the bridge and turn right at the sign for Thomas Dam Road/Boy Scout Camp.

Camp Karoondinha is on the left.  From the road, all you'll see is the parking area and the gate.  As you go up the hill, look for the Troll sign.  The Dining Hall is the large stone building with 3 flagpoles in front.  To get to the Edna Sheary Lodge, continue up the hill past the Dining Hall.  Sheary Lodge is located in the wooded area just past the large field on the right.

Parking spaces in front of both buildings will be reserved for those with mobility concerns.

Drivers are asked to use their flashers and to travel at the posted 10 miles per hour.
