Adventure Abounds For All Ages At Skytop

Craving a family vacation filled with adventure and excitement? Here at Skytop Lodge, we believe that the family that adventures together makes lifelong memories together. We pride ourselves on offering a range of onsite activities to challenge and inspire even our youngest guests. Here are three of our favorite family adventures to try on your next Skytop family getaway.

Rock Climbing

Our 33-foot high climbing wall offers challenges for climbers of all experience and skill levels. The climbing wall looks and feels like real rock and features six different sides, all with distinct challenges. With no minimum age requirement, our rock wall at Skytop Lodge is a great way to introduce even very young children to the thrill of rock climbing. Each climber receives individual instruction and is belayed by one of our trained Adventure Center staff members. Closed toe shoes and reservations are required to climb, so you’ll want to plan accordingly.

Treetop Adventure Course

Fly through the trees on 16 different zip lines on our Treetop Adventure Course. In between zip lines you’ll be scaling ladders, crossing suspended logs, and even climbing a cargo net throughout our 3,000-foot course. Due to the nature of some of the challenges, participants must be at least 10 years old with an adult or 16 years old unaccompanied. Additionally, all participants must meet height and waist requirements to ensure safety.


Take your best shot on our Skytop Outfitters Shooting Range, open year-round. With a 12-station sporting clays course and 5-stand wobble trap, the Skytop Range offers fun shooting experience for novices and skilled shooters alike. All participants must be at least 12 years old.

So, why take just a family vacation when you can embark on a family adventure at Skytop Lodge? Located on our stunning 5,500-acre estate, Skytop has been the premier family resort in the Poconos since 1928. For more information or to make a reservation, contact us today.
