Until recently, Camelback’s food left a lot to be desired, but the 2008-2009 season saw a revamp of their menu offerings. Along with the usual slopeside fare of burgers and pizza, the resort’s delis and grills offer lighter options, such as fresh salads, grilled chicken, yogurt, and fruit. Expect to pay $20+ for a meal and drinks for two adults. If you go off mountain, the nearby Barley Creek Brewery (Sullivan Trail & Camelback Road, Tannersville – you’ll see it on your way up the mountain) is a great place for lunch or dinner.
In addition to skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing, and snowmobiling, the Poconos is renowned for sports such as golf, tennis, hiking, horse riding, and biking, if you’re going in the off season. There is plenty of lodging and rental homes in the area, including ski homes, vacation cabins, and bed and breakfasts. There are prices that correspond to everyone’s budget, whether your tastes run to a cozy lodge with a fireplace or a sleek condo with a hot tub and wet bar.
