Book your stay at the Camelback Lodge and Indoor Waterpark, your family friendly destination all year long. From winter skiing on Camelback Mountain to the water park, ropes course, arcades and mini golf – your adventure awaits at Camelback Resort!

Camelback Resort

Every summer we travel from the east coast to Michigan, and every time the kids and I do not look forward to the 15 hour drive. But this year was different, we decided to stop half way and start our vacation off at the Camelback Lodge and Indoor Waterpark,  located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. While the kids knew that we would be staying at the Camelback Resort, they thought it just an ordinary hotel. Seeing their eyes light up when they spotted  Indoor Waterpark, the video games, and ropes course was priceless. My husband is often left out when it comes to visiting attractions due to his work schedule, so it was great to experience this year-round destination as a family.

The eight-story Camelback Lodge is located at the base of Camelback Mountain and transforms the Camelback Resort, which is widely known for skiing in the winter, into a year-round family friendly destination with the addition of Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark. The Camelback water park is the largest indoor water park in the Northeast with seven pools and 13 waterslides. Families will enjoy soaking up the sun indoors at a comfortable 84-degrees with plenty of water fun for adults, teenagers, as well as toddlers.

Camelback Resort

The theme of the Camelback Resort is based off of the adventures of Kartrite Van Der Berris.

Kartrite Van Der Berris, the legendary explorer, having traveled the world over, came upon Camelback Mountain on one of his frequent expeditions to the PoconoMountains and envisioned a grand lodge at the base of its peak, filled with wondersfrom the corners of the Earth. Here visitors would stay and experience the splendor ofthe mountain year-round in a lodge with a blend of rustic craftsman style andcontemporary finishes, and at its core, an awe-inspiring indoor waterpark namedAquatopia, filled with the relics and treasures from his worldly travels.

Camelback Resort Guest Rooms

Double Queen Suite Features:

  • 2 Queen Beds
  • 1 Queen Sofa Sleeper
  • Snack-size Refrigerator
  • Microwave
  • Iron & Ironing Board
  • In-room Safe

While there are restaurants and snack bars available on site for meals and beverages, all guest rooms include a snack-size refrigerator as well as a microwave that allows families to bring their own meals, as well as reheat previous meals. We used our Camelback Resort Amenity Credit to purchase a pizza, and combined with the coupon for buy 1 pizza, get 1 free, we had leftovers pizza to reheat. We also brought along drinks, as well yogurt and milk for cereal for breakfast and had plenty of room in the fridge to keep them all cold.

While most of our stay out spent in the indoor waterpark area, we did take a break from swimming and water slides to visit Arcadia Adventures where the kids played arcade games and challenged their inner self balancing on beams on the ropes course. The staff was more than accommodating to Jonathan who was scared to cross the ropes course, but with their encouragement and one-on-one assistance, he overcame his fear and then didn’t want to get down.

Although checkout is at 11am, you can continue to use the indoor water park as well as the other amenities for the remainder of the day. There are changing rooms in the indoor water park area, as well as lockers. With the snack bar located right in side the water park area, you can pack up your vehicle and spend the day by the water, or down the street at CamelBeach Mountain Waterpark.

Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark admission is included with your stay at Camelback Lodge & Indoor Waterpark.
