When you enter Kidder Township you are entering the front door of the Pocono’s.  The Township covers 70-square miles of beautifully wooded terrain in the northern tip of Carbon County.  It is primarily a heavily wooded area easily accessible. If taking I-476 (formerly called the Northeast Extension of the PA Turnpike) use Exit 95 and if taking Interstate 80, Exit 277 / Lake Harmony or Exit 284 / Blakeslee.  We’re only 20 minutes south of Wilkes-Barre.  The Township encircles Hickory Run State Park and has thousands of acres of Pennsylvania State Game Lands which provide excellent camping, hiking, cross country skiing and hunting.  The many resorts within Kidder Township offer facilities for conventions, ski slopes, golf courses and lakes for boating and fishing so there is something for everyone year round. Kidder Township is a zoned community that consists primarily of vacation and seasonal homes from small rustic A-frames to large glass fronted contemporaries suitable for executive entertaining.  The full time residents are, rightfully so, proud of their Township and strongly support the governing ordinances that provide building codes, anti-littering laws, trespass and abandoned vehicle controls as well as other laws that promote living in a civilized community.

As many have experienced, it is a popular vacation and seasonal home location, governed and patrolled to keep it as peaceful, tranquil and beautiful as it is.  Whatever your reason for being in Kidder Township, we welcome you!

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is going to be doing updates to the Flood Rate Insurance Map and Flood Insurance Study report for our community. In order for them to properly gather the information crews from Fisher Associates will be performing field surveys in and along creeks for this new study. They will make every attempt possible to stay on public land and rights-of-way; however, it may be necessary from time to time for them to enter privately owned property for a short period of time. Should this occur an employee on the project will make every attempt to contact the property owner and seek permission.

This project is to begin December and continue for approximately four months, weather permitting. If you have any questions feel free to contact the Township Office.

Thank you.
