If you are driving through the area, and would like to see an excellent view of the surrounding area. It is worth the trip up to Big Pocono State Park. It is on the top of Big Pocono Mt. From the top you can drive around a loop and see the Appalachian Ridge cut by the amazing Delaware Water Gap. However, the encroachment of housing developments,...more

A large, long, red barn, with over a hundred different sellers. So many stalls, your eyes go dizzy after a while. Not a whole lot of furniture here.Open:Thursday through Monday 10-5 We found the prices here to be much higher than what we pay down our way in Mullica Hill, NJ, or Salem, NJ. There were only a few sellers' prices in keeping with what...more

We invested in a couple of $12 ski locks. Lots of people lock up their equipment along the deck of the lodge.
If you don't have a lock, start saving your quarters--you can lock up your gear at Camelbacks ski/board racks.
Bring even more quarters if you want to rent a locker for your street shoes/clothes, etc. Bear in mind that everytime you open your locker, you have to repay!
Luggage and bags:
The temperature in the area changes greatly from the morning to night. Being there in April, it was warm enough in the day to go out without a jacket. However, by dinner a winter coat was needed.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For some unknown reason, whenever we go to PA it always rains. So for my family we always bring the raincoats and umbrellas.
Photo Equipment: There are great scenic spots along the highways to take nature picutes. So bring the camera along.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are a few ski slops in the area for winter fun. In the summer, Camel Back ski slope becomes Camel Beach, a water park. So depending on the time of year, pack accordingly.
It's not well marked, but there is an inside locker room. With all the lockers available outside, it took us a few trips to actually find this large, spread your gear out all over the place, place! I think they like to keep it quiet...
The lockers do a pretty fine job of ripping you off; it got us, and then all the others around us, so I know we weren't just being dunces! What happens: you put in your 3 quarters, shut the door, turn the key, but it won't come out, so you let it return to the upward position, and sha-zam, you lost your money. When you turn the key, you really have to struggle to pull it out! If you give up, flooop, it returns up, and you lose! Careful!
Bear in mind you have to go down a few flights of stairs, so much fun in ski boots!
The lodge sits at the bottom of all the slopes. The food here is like all the ski resorts in the Poconos--expensive! But there are lots of food areas, so the lines don't go on forever.Plenty of parking. If you arrive after the front lots are full, a shuttle runs around to pick you up and deliver you right at the ticketing area. Oh, yeah, speaking...more
We get our best skiing in when we arrive early. Camelback opens at 8 am. If you can be on the slopes by nine, you almost have the place to yourself. (Which you can hardly believe when you see how full the parking lot is!)By ten, you see the crowd building. We eat lunch at 11 am, so that when everyone else is lunching noon-1ish, we are back out.By...more
