Camelback Mountain Waterpark & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark—Tannersville, Pa

You can play in the water inside or outside at this massive waterpark. Aquatopia is a mere 125,000 square feet. It’s multi-level, with seven pools and 13 slides and always 84 degrees. There’s a wavepool and the Storm Chaser: the longest indoor watercoaster in the U.S. For fun in the sun, you can spend hours upon hours at the Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark—the biggest outdoor waterpark in the Poconos, with 37 rides, slides and attractions. Pack your sunscreen! Access to both parks is included when you stay at the Camelback Resort Lodge.
