Many of the local ski resorts have converted to year round vacation destinations offering fun in all seasons.  One of our Pocono favorites is Camelback Resort in Tannersville, PA.

Camelback features skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing, mountain adventures in winter along with the wet and wonderful fun of its grand indoor waterpark, Aquatopia, and its thrilling outdoor summertime waterpark, Camelbeach.  Camelback gives you abundant reasons to visit all year round for a day trip or extended vacations.

The recently opened Camelback Resort has suites that are spacious and comfortable with modern, attractive furnishings. There are 453 units with 16 individual layouts.  Many of the rooms feature fireplaces, balconies and kitchen areas so guests can completely relax after a busy day.

Overnight guests of the resort have unlimited access to Aquatopia, the 125,000 square foot multi-level waterpark that is meticulously maintained. It includes waterslides like the "Storm Chaser," children's play areas, the "Ka-na-gawa Wave Pool," the "Mystic SpringsSpa Lagoon," "The Lost River" and poolside amenities to enjoy like spacious lounge areas. You don't have to be a swimmer to have fun at Aquatopia. Just being in the surroundings is delightful.

We like that the Camelback Resort experience works for all ages. Adults are pampered at "Serenity Spa" and children are indulged at the "Oasis Kid's Spa." Kids and kids-at-heart also will enjoy engaging in the vast variety of games at "Arcadia Mega Arcade," playing laser tag in "Lazer Runner" or doing a round of "Meh-Tah's" indoor mini-golf.

The Resort has dining options that include a variety of restaurants and snack bars, with menus to suit all budgets, tastes and styles.

You can visit the restaurants even if you aren’t an overnight guest. The choices include Trails End, the rustic, casual bistro-style restaurant offering everything from burgers to complete entrees; Neptunes overlooks Aquatopia and serves salads, fresh sushi and small plates; Hemispheres presents tempting buffet breakfasts and dinners; the World Bazaar Coffee Shop has baked items, treats, healthy snacks and specially blended coffee drinks.

Whether you are on a day-trip or a stay-trip, outdoor adventures abound with zip lining and the ever-popular "Mountain Coaster," which gives a thrilling ride down the slope for one or two riders.  Outdoor enthusiasts can also engage in the Treetops Adventure Course, Mountain Segway Tours and the Summit Bicycle tours.

Camelback Resort and its amenities make it a gem of a getaway. Gather your group and plan a trip. It is an ideal location for corporate meetings and team building as well as events like family reunions and birthday celebrations.
