As with all of the Great Wolf Lodges, the Pocono Mountains resort features a woodlands theme and a log-cabin facade.
To get more information about the Pennsylvania water park resort, including location details, how to make reservations, and dining options, check out my overview.
Check Out the Check-In
The huge lobby features high ceilings, an enormous fireplace (which serves as the meeting place for nightly storytelling), and a Northwoods theme.
Look Ma, No Hands!
The water slides in the four-story Bear Track Landing indoor water park start up around the building's rafters. With the exception of the park's water coaster, none of the attractions are particularly aggressive, and most visitors should be able to tolerate the thrills. (Despite its name, the water coaster isn't really an extreme ride either.)
The Fort Mackenzie treehouse and water play structure is the centerpiece of the 78,000-square-foot indoor water park. It includes all kinds of interactive sprayers and other gizmos to get yourself and those around you soaked.
Don't Cry Over Spilled Water
Every few minutes, a ringing bell signals that the tipping bucket atop Fort Mackenzie's treehouse is about to dump its load of water.
Look Ma, STILL No Hands
Guests laze along the water park's lazy river. Other attractions include a water coaster ride, a wave pool, tube slides, body slides, kiddie slides, an activity pool, and whirlpool spas.
Among the more whimsical hotel room choices at the Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains is the KidCabin Suite. It includes a day bed and a set of bunk beds tucked into a "cabin" alcove within the room.
Hungry as a...
The Great Wolf Lodge includes a number of onsite dining choices, including the Camp Critter Bar & Grille, a family restaurant (like there'd be any other kind here) with a casual menu. There is also a restaurant that features a buffet.
In Her Element
Who says the resort is all about kids? To help get the wrinkles out of waterlogged guests, the Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains includes Elements, an Aveda Concept Spa.
