Known as Pennsylvania’s premier vacation destination, the Pocono Mountains contain more than 80 percent of all the state’s resorts. With four seasons of outdoor activities, pristine mountain peaks, and exciting city attractions, this fact comes as no surprise. However, how many of these resorts still provide that unforgettable family experience? 

As one of the Poconos’ few remaining classic family resorts, Mountain Springs Lake Resort offers adventures for all ages. This Reeders, Pennsylvania stay features a family-friendly atmosphere in the peaceful wilderness but is also just a short drive from all the area attractions. Come experience outstanding amenities, an abundance of outdoor activities, and in-town excitement for all ages. 

The entertainment begins onsite, where 375 acres of wooded wilderness serve as your Poconos playground. Hike through the forested nature trails, explore the wide open fields, or soak in a wealth of water activities on the 72-acre Mountain Springs Lake. Catch a tan on one of the two beaches, make a splash in one of the two swimming areas, or toss in a line for some fantastic fishing (state fishing licenses are not required). And, since each cottage comes with its own row boat, you can explore the shores on a family boating expedition. 

Continue the family feel in the accommodations, which are primarily two- to three-bedroom cottages designed to fit the entire family. Chat with your loved ones is spacious living rooms, cozy up next to the fireplace, stretch out on the front porch, or prepare a family picnic on the charcoal grill. Challenge your loved ones to a game of table tennis in the ping pong room or step outside for volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, canoeing, and more. This setting is truly optimal for a family getaway. 

“It was a private and very peaceful setting,” satisfied guest Dawn R. said. “The layout was perfect and we were happy to enjoy the gas fireplace on that one chilly night. The walkways were well-manicured, as was the grass in the common areas. The private boat and dock are a lovely addition. The view really speaks for itself.”  

Though you are getting away from it all, that doesn’t mean you can’t be within close proximity to all the area’s attractions. Stuff shopping bags at The Crossings Outlets, get your thrills at amusement parks like Camelbeach Water Park, and tempt your taste buds at an array of restaurants. When the winter wonderland arrives, carve up the slopes at Camelback Ski Resort. You’ll find everything you need for an exceptional vacation here. 

“From the moment we arrived, everything exceeded our expectations,” wedding guest Michelle P. said. “The scenery, the hospitality, the accommodations, and the grounds were above and beyond anything we could have imagined or hoped for. Our cabin was clean and comfortable and outfitted with everything we could have needed or wanted during our stay.” 

Satisfied customers are nothing new at this resort. Family-owned and operated since 1953, Mountain Springs Lake Resort has perfected the craft of classic family fun.
