We just spent five fabulous days at Kemp's Kamp near Keystone and it was one of the best family holidays we have ever been on!
The 2 bedroom cabin was clean, had all the utensils, linens and toiletries we needed and yes the TV is small but really when you're holidaying in the Hills who wants to watch TV? Spencer (the nephew of the owner) was fantastic, friendly, hospitable and always checked to see if we needed extra linens. He offered good information about where to eat and what to do.
Our children (12 and 15) spent at least two hours a day playing in the pool (which Spencer cleaned every morning at 8:30 am). We were told that we could use a campsite if we wanted to grill food or roast marshmallows as there are no grills or fire pits at the cabin (we had checked this out before we came so brought our own portable grill).
This campsite/cabin is located 5 min. away from Keystone and is nestled in a quaint area on Old Hill Road. There was hardly any traffic except for the old train that came by a few times a day, which was a treat as the kids liked to wave to the passengers. We saw dear, wild turkey and squirrels out the front porch.
It was very peaceful the week we chose as most of the US children were back in school (ours weren't back in until after the long weekend). We thought it would get busier Sept. long however it was still not very busy. And the weather was the best we'd had all summer. We got lucky on many fronts.
The price was one of the best in the area for what we needed (2 bedroom cabin - we searched online through at least 10), it was clean, comfortable, air conditioned and had something for all of us. I would totally recommend this location to anyone and this is one of the few places I would say that I would like to go back to (we travel a lot and like to find new things to do, a week wasn't enough time to do it all).
Yes the manager is "moody" (he was never rude, just not very outgoing and friendly), but if you look for the positive and don't take it personally wherever you go it will always be a good time!
