Kennedy Meadows is a great getaway. My family has been coming here to camp, fish, fellowship, and hike for most of my life and I now bring my children and grandchildren here as well. The campgrounds are clean and spacious with easy access to the river. The scenery is breathtaking. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly. I highly recommend Kennedy Meadows to anyone who wants to get away and enjoy the beauty this area has to offer.
