Comments from past users:

  • “Kemp is a treasure. For our group of DNR managers, it was a great place to mostly disconnect from the daily grind and have a productive meeting on larger policy issues that require collaboration, and to build team cohesion. The classroom, kitchen and lodge facilities were in great condition and the variety of sleeping accommodations offered a good choice for everyone. Very happy with our visit — thank you to the staff of Kemp.: – G.W., 2023
