From waterfalls to ski resorts on mountaintops, Pocono Lake is a breathtaking location to indulge in the perfect family vacation, snow or shine.
Top things to do in the winter include snowtubing down one of 42 lightning fast lanes at Camelback Mountain, skiing and snowboardingn at a ski resort like Shawnee Mountain, gambling at the Mohegan Sun Pocono casino, snowmobiling at Hickory Run State Park, ice skating at Promised Land State Park, and snowshoeing at The French Manor. Top things to do in the summer include making a splash at an indoor waterpark resort like Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, ziplining at Camelback Mountain Adventures, and golfing at Buckhill Falls.
For skiing and other winter activities, the best time to visit is December through January because of the heavy snowfall, which is twice what the average US city gets in a year. For summer activities, the best time to visit is June through August, when rain is sporadic, which helps cool down the temperature.
