PA Vacation Help Please

Postby Slack Tide » Wed May 28, 2014 6:15 pm

Hi all,
I have had great trips from the forum's advise for vacations in CT, RI, ME and NY.....
My family (2 year old, 4 year old and wife) and I are looking to come to the great Keystone state this summer from Long Island. Woodloch Resort was recommended but CRAZY money....($2800 for 3 days to give you a reference of what I mean by crazy)
I need a nice resort on a lake with great amenities, food, pools etc...and what I really would like is a place where I really don't have to get in the truck everyday to find something to do, eat, etc.
Keep in mind, I do NOT want a water park atmosphere.....the high-lite of the last trip for the boys was the ice machine in the hotel...
Quiet, good food, nice grounds to walk around....maybe some music etc...
What would you advise in your state?
Thanks,
Slack

A friend of mine has a timeshare up in the poconos. The resort is called Split Rock. His family seems to always have fun. I'm sure you could find more about it by searching Google. Best of luck.

Raystown Resort at Raystown Lake. Sounds like exactly what you are looking for.

Been here a few times when i was a kid and always had a good time. Nothing near the size of a 6 flags but plenty big enough to keep the amily entertained for the whole day. Usually isnt too crowded either.
