Split Rock Resort, a Year-Round Family Resort

Where can you find a surplus of family-friendly activities while on vacation?  Split Rock is a year round family resort located on more than 1,200 acres of forest and mountains in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  When I announced to my family my focus for summer 2016 is family-friendly vacations, the reaction was pure excitement. My sons pre-selected their activities prior to our arrival at Split Rock and were raring to begin our adventure the moment we checked in at the resort.

One of the most prominent views from the Appalachian Trail is the cascading Kittatinny Ridge that dramatically cuts in and overhangs the Delaware River, right in the Poconos’ very own Delaware Water Gap.  The gap itself spans nearly a mile thanks to the winding river that cuts through the mountains separating the New Jersey and Pennsylvania border.  The river actually contributes to the continual peak growth of the ridge, which is constantly shifting.

Big Pocono State Park
One of the best kept secrets amongst Pocono locals sits on the mountaintop surrounding Camelback ski resort.  The 1,306 acres of steep terrain overlooks the Mountain’s chairlifts and provides a 365-degree view of three states spanning Monroe and Jackson counties.  The park is uniquely positioned to see the famous Delaware Water Gap’s prominent silhouette.
