Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: An unlikely pair, Bryan grew up in Marion Center, Pennsylvania where he was raised on the family farm, tending to fields, and hunting and fishing when he got the chance; Jennifer grew up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, and when she came to Indiana County, PA to attend IUP, she fell in love with the outdoors and never left the area. Bryan's family has a camp on Wolf Lick, and since he was a child, Bryan grew up fishing the streams in Elk Country, and hunting bear and whitetail deer in the abundant State Game and Forest Lands. Needless to say, Bryan's roots as an outdoorsman run deep, and still today, he is an avid fisherman, hunter, and trapper. Almost a decade ago, Jennifer was introduced to Elk Country by Bryan's dad, Ed, and the two have put on countless miles photographing elk and sightseeing. Despite growing up in the city, Jennifer developed a deep love for the outdoors, she is an avid trail runner and hiker, and also likes to hunt and fish.
Why the Owner Chose Driftwood, PA, USA:
With many fond childhood memories of Elk Country and his family's camp on Wolf Lick Run, Bryan bought the piece of land that Camp Can't Keep Up now sits on around 2005, built by hand with the help of friends and family, Camp Can’t Keep Up has sat alongside the banks of Hicks Run since its completion in 2008. Bryan cultivated many fond memories with his family, but especially his two children at this cabin over the years, fishing for trout, hunting whitetail deer in the state game lands, elk shed (antler) hunting, biking, cooking over an open fire, and just enjoying the beauty of nature in the Pennsylvania Wilds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Camp Can't Keep up sits alone on a generous 1.5 acre lot, that is backed by Hicks Run. a well-stocked trout stream. Situated a mile off of the main highway, Hicks Run Road is perfect for running and biking, with very little traffic. The cabin has beautiful mountain views and the porch swings are perfect for drinking your morning coffee and listening to the creek. Kids of all ages love the swings and rope swings! The outdoor cooking area is large enough to accommodate the entire family!
