Poconos Events

The Pocono Mountains, commonly referred to as the Poconos, is located in northeastern Pennsylvania. This geographically expansive area hosts four major ski resorts, including Alpine Mountain Ski & Ride Center, Blue Mountain, Camelback Mountain Resort and Jack Frost Big Boulder.

With Pocono meaning the “stream between two mountains,” it’s no wonder the area is home to a variety of whitewater rafting opportunities: from the Delaware River to Lehigh River Gorge State Park, a myriad of guided tours are available. Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark, Pennsylvania’s biggest outdoor waterpark, is located at the base of Camelback Mountain and offers 37 rides, slides and attractions. Other summer activities include horseback riding, hunting, golfing, fishing and skydiving.
