TANNERSVILLE, Penn. (September 18, 2020) – Autumn is an amazingly vibrant time to visit Camelback Resort and the Pocono Mountains – easy driving distance from New York City and Philadelphia – nestled against Big Pocono State Park. The breathtaking fall foliage on its own is trip worthy. But there is so much more, including scenic hikes, picnicking, outdoor adventures, including the Haunted Monster Coaster and Lights Out Zip Line challenge to be thrilled and chilled by at night. Aquatopia, USA Today’s #1 indoor waterpark with its exciting waterslides and surfing is always included in stays at the resort. New this season, Camelback Campfires delight guests with a sensational s’mores experience at a private firepit, and the Trails End Pub & Grille Bonfires are a do-not-miss fall nighttime party. Camelback’s Zip, Zoom, Splash Package offers accommodations and some of the resort’s favorite activities at a special price. Before or after outdoor adventures, guestrooms are comfortable to easily “work from home” or be a part of virtual learning sessions.

Camelback Campfires and S’mores Kits

Offered nightly, seatings available between 5 to 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 to 8 p.m.

A brand new fall treat just introduced to the resort are Camelback Campfires at Trail’s End Pub & Grille. Guests can enjoy their own private firepit, relax on Adirondack chairs and take in the majestic mountain views while roasting yummy s’mores, having a quick bite to eat and sipping seasonal cocktails, craft brews and/or local cider. It is a special fall memory for couples, for friends, for the family.

Price starts at $100 to reserve a private campfire pit for two.

Bonfire Experiences at Trail’s End Pub & Grille

Every Thursday and Saturday through October from 8 p.m. to midnight.

These weekly bonfires are full of fall-tastic fun including live music, special cocktails, cornhole, ladderball and other entertaining camaraderie activities. S’mores kits are available.

Haunted Monster Coaster and Lights Out Zip Line

Beginning Friday, September 25; every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through October 31

Camelback Mountain’s one-of-a-kind Halloween Monster Mountain experience is a thrilling and frightful destination for family fun. It all happens on a unique mountain coaster that zooms down Camelback Mountain with terrifying creatures, roaming beasts and forest ghouls along the way. The Lights Out Zip Line races through the night sky on the 1,000-foot Double Barrel Zip Line over the shadowy abyss below. An eerie light brings the dark forest to life as riders plunge into darkness and speed to the haunted pathway at the trail’s end.

Pricing: Monster Coaster is $22 and Lights Out Zip Line is $18.

Fall Foliage Picnics

Guests at Camelback are invited to pick up a hardy picnic from its World Bazaar gourmet market and take a hike to Big Poconos State Park. Their picnic basket will include delicious cheese and charcuterie, local honey and jam, rustic crackers and a bottle of wine – complete with a trail map.
