From this turn, follow signs for 235 South through Laurelton (last chance for food, gas, and ATM).  After navigating the first 90-degree turn, continue straight ahead onto Lincoln Chapel Road instead of making a second 90-degree turn.  At the next stop sign, turn left onto Paddy Mountain Road. 

At the T-intersection, turn right onto Creek Road.  Penns Creek will be on your left.  When you pass a large 3-story stone house with three arches on your right, 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.
