In addition to snow tubing, Camelback Resort has undergone significant enhancements for the winter season. These upgrades include the introduction of the new high-speed, six-person enclosed lift dubbed Black Bear 6, and an expanded terrain park. The resort’s improvements also extend to its snowmaking capabilities, ensuring that skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the slopes regardless of natural snowfall.

Camelback Ski & Ride Academy offers top-notch ski and snowboard instruction for all ages and levels, including a full-service adaptive skiing and snowboarding program in partnership with the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports. This ensures that snow sports are accessible to people with disabilities.

For accommodations, Camelback Lodge, the only ski-in/ski-out resort in the Poconos, offers 453 luxury guest suites. The resort also features Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, which was voted the #1 Indoor Waterpark by USA Today readers. Aquatopia recently introduced the Mountain Mayhem immersive slide, adding to its array of water-based activities.

Dining options at Camelback Resort are varied, catering to different tastes and preferences. The 19 options include Big Pocono Family Eatery, Berrelli’s Italian Chophouse, Café & Bar La Colombe, Hemispheres, Trails End Pub & Grille, Graffiti Pizza, and the Sugar Shack.
