Camelback Resort, a terrific year-round recreational destination with skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing, waterparks, ziplining, and Pennsylvania’s only mountain coaster, has completed its first phase of a comprehensive resort-wide transformation – including a contemporary new look in all guest suites, new resort branding, no contact services and new dining experiences.
The 560-acre resort is located in Tannersville, Pa., in the Pocono Mountains
“Camelback Resort has entered a new era as it continues to attract families, couples and friends to enjoy its fresh air activities in a scenic destination. We are the Tri-State go-to for reconnecting, recharging and exploring,” said Managing Director Shawn Hauver. “Our new look and modern amenities offer appealing rustic ambiance and adventure reflective of the Pocono Mountains.”
Each of the 453 guest suites now have vibrant pops of color – mountain sky-inspired blue – with rustic furnishings, modern fabrics, rich woods and polished marble. Authentic Pocono nature scenes by the region’s top nature and landscape photographers, including Chrissy Donadi, Matt Fischer and Corey Hilz, punctuate each guest room and corridor.
In addition to new food and drink trucks on Camelback Mountain, the resort has remodeled various restaurants with more dining attractions – positioning Camelback as a Pocono Mountain destination for fun eating and drinking experiences.
The resort’s Graffiti Pizza now features custom wall coverings by former NFL running back Baron Batch, an up-and-coming artist. His interactive style, based on street styles of the 70s and 80s, provides a mix of pop art and expressionism to the updated pizzeria.
The new Sugar Shack replaces Sweet Discovery and is in the Lodge on the lower level next to the Arcade.
At Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, the former FlyBoys swim-up bar is renamed Oasis and offers an adult-only retreat with exotic cocktails and premium rums.
Renowned for its excellent ski and snowboard instruction, Camelback Resort introduces a newly, enhanced Camelback Ski & Ride Academy with dedicated locations for each of its four instructional programs (SnowClub Kids, SnowPro Groups, SnowPro Private and Snow Coaching at Coolmoor Run), with online ticket purchasing and rentals to provide an exclusive, safe and crowd-free experience.
The resort’s new Sunbowl quad lift carries singles or groups up to four across the mountain to Camelback Mountain Village to hook up to the base area, easily and safely, right at the Sullivan Lift area. The Sunbowl Trail has been redesigned and widened with upgraded snowmaking systems for excellent ski experiences. The new lift also allows for easy connectivity to the base – great for kids visiting the newly redesigned ski school SnowClub at Adventure Basecamp.
