The Pocono Visitors Center holds a wealth of information for any activity or adventure you and your family could want while visiting the Pocono region.
Big Pocono State Park
Big Pocono State Park is not to be missed when visiting The Village in the spring, summer or fall ( it's closed in the winter). Just up the road from The Village, Big Pocono has 1.4 miles of paved road for walking, running, biking or driving that encircles the top of Camelback Mountain where visitors can enjoy terrific scenic views of eastern Pennsylvania and portions of NJ and NY at 2,100 feet above sea level. There are three picnic areas with picnic tables and charcoal grills, four parking lots (parking lot 2 has a restroom and some picnic tables nearby and parking lot 4 is designated for people with disabilities) and 8.5 miles of hiking trails (marked). When visiting the Park look for the Park brochure at Parking lot 2 which includes a map and more information on the Park's trails, wildlife and history. We also have copies of the maps in the lobby area of our sports complex.
The park is open sunrise to sunset.
State Game Lands # 38
Is a great place to explore nature, with it's many hiking and biking trails some winding through the old railroad beds.
Parking lot # 38 is on your way to Big Pocono Park just past The Village on the right side of the road. Here you will find Wolf Swamp and Deep Lake. The access to the railroad beds is at the back of parking lot # 6 which is used by Camelback Mountain Resort for over flow parking.
Please be aware these are rugged hiking trails and since they are State Game Lands they are used by hunters. It is best to look up the hunting seasons before proceeding on the trails. I have provided the link below.
Camelbeach is one of the premier water parks in northeastern Pennsylvania with a wave pool, lazy river, tube rides, and 30 water slides that are sure to provide a fun filled day. For the land lovers, CBK Mountain Adventures, the alter ego of Camelbeach, offers Canopy Tours through the treetops with zip lines down Camelback Mountain, rock climbing, a Eurobungi and lots more.GOLFING
There are over 25 challenging 18 hole Public golf courses in the Poconos with stunning mountain views. Most courses are within a 30-45 minute drive from The Village at Camelback. You will rarely have difficulty getting the tee time you want unless there happens to be a tournament.SKIING, SNOWBOARDING
Camelback Ski area offers downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, lessons, night skiing and more. It has over 40 trails that will offer the novice skier plenty of practice slopes, but will challenge the intermediate and expert skiers beyond expectations. The lifts are speedy and efficient and snow making capabilities are the best the Poconos have to offer. Ski season starts usually in mid December and this year (2011) ski season ended in mid March.RAFTING, CANOEING, KAYAKING
Float, paddle, dare rapids, or lounge on the river's edge. The Delaware River offers a unique day to be spent on the water.
