Staying at the Camelback Mountain Resort is the best way to enjoy the resort and all it has to offer. Camelback Mountain Resort is condo lodging close to the waterpark. The Chateau Resort and Conference Center is the closest resort to both Camelbeach and the slopes. Enjoy the heated pool, sauna, whirlpool and exercise room. Countryside Housekeeping Cottages are two to six bedroom cottages perfect for large groups and still close to the slopes. Fernwood Hotel and Resort has indoor pools, a massage center and horseback riding. You can also enjoy the tube park and tiny tot play area, but you will have to make a short drive to the mountain. Other nearby considerations might be the Great Wolf Lodge, Howard Johnson Hotel, The Inn At Pocono Manor and Mount Airy Casino and Resort.

There are plenty of dining options for you to enjoy while you are not on the slopes skiing. Big Pocono Family Eatery is casual cafeteria style. The Eastside Bistro has burger baskets and made to order salads, and more. The Presto Pizza has pizza, pretzels and breakfast sandwiches. Visit the Thirsty Camel for fun, with a bar and live bands. The Deck BBQ is all about sandwiches and dogs. The Sunbowl Lodge has burgers, pizza and other snacks. Glen Lodge is along the lines of fine dining and the Tubing Park Snack Shack, well, it's a snack shack. The Cameltop Mountain Lodge serves breakfast items, subs and beer.
