ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: My mom and I set off to Camelback Lodge in the Pocono Mountains on Friday morning; our commute wasn’t long, so we got there earlier in the day. Since it was spring break for some New Jersey and New York schools, it was crowded when we arrived, but the check-in process went smoothly. The staff at the hotel was waiting for our arrival, and our room was ready for us as soon as we got there.
GUEST QUARTERS: Camelback Lodge is currently in the process of renovating all its guestrooms, and we were lucky to stay in a newly refurbished room. Our room was a generous size, decorated with vibrant colors and photos by local artists. As we walked into the room, a decent-sized bathroom stood to the right, and to the left was a hanging rack and shelves. The room included two queen beds along with a sofa sitting area and a small dining table. The table was filled with some of our favorite snacks such as popcorn, Doritos, fruits and vegetables and, our personal favorite, a giant soft pretzel.
The lodge offers countless activities and amenities to take advantage of during a stay, no matter the season. Year-round, guests can enjoy Aquatopia, the famous indoor waterpark, where they can spend the day relaxing at a private cabana or splashing in the wave pool and slipping down the slides. In the summer months guests can also head to the outdoor waterpark.
If adventure is more your speed, spend a winter weekend hitting the slopes of Camelback Mountain. Located right behind the resort, the slopes are easy to get to and suitable for different skill levels for skiing and snowboarding. In the fall, spring and summer, adventure seekers should try the multiple zip lines, mountain coaster, ropes course and more. We went during early spring and had the chance to ride the Mountain Coaster, which provided beautiful views of the mountain.
If you are looking for a delicious meal and great atmosphere, head to Berrelli’s Italian Chophouse. Within walking distance of the hotel, the restaurant offers a variety of great dishes; delicious desserts; and an extensive wine, beer and cocktail menu.
- Camelback Lodge is the perfect place for families to let loose and escape their everyday lives.
- All overnight guests have free passes to the waterpark during their stay.
- The Lodge offers plenty of family suites and condos that can accommodate up to 12 guests.
- No matter the season, plenty of activities will keep the kids entertained, from an arcade to two waterparks, ski and snowboard slopes and more.

There’s an aspirational rustic chic/farm-to-table restaurant genre often associated with Northern California’s wine country. When you drive down the main street of Napa, Sonoma or any of the other towns, it appears there are as many of them as there are vineyards. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this genre, as the quality of the food is consistent and ambitious chefs earnestly endeavor to elevate home-style dishes to a higher standard.
