Looking for a secluded wilderness environment on the banks of a renown, breathtaking wild trout ‘river’? Would all of the comforts of home enhance your enjoyment and complete your escape? You have found it!
Located in a remote area of Bald Eagle State Forest in Central PA is … Kaarondinhah’s Camp Guttalata.
“Kaarondinhah” (ka ron’ den hah‘) was the Lenni Lenape name for “shining waters”, refering to a special stretch of water on Penn’s Creek on which Camp Guttalata is located.
“Guttalata”, commonly called The Green Drake, is one of the largest species of the mayfly genus Ephemera, for which Penn’s Creek is WORLD FAMOUS. This mayfly hatch on Penn’s is renown not only because of the large size of this mayfly, but also due to the overwhelming numbers of this particular species that hatch over a short window of time as well as it’s representative nature of mayfly appearances. This hatch will bring the largest trout in the stream to the surface to take advantage of this abundant food source.
Nestled deep in Bald Eagle State Forest, along the wooded banks of this hallowed and still revered water, Camp Guttalata is the perfect location for a variety of outdoor pleasures.
This web site is filled with information about the multitude of activities that can be enjoyed when you step outside of this comfortable, secluded ”home-away-from- home”. If you have any questions about Camp Guttalata please look through the site or contact us.
