Cowboy Luau in the Poconos | Where to Stay and What to Do While You’re Here  

Feb 21, 2023

The Pocono Mountains are known for their breathtaking natural beauty, outdoor recreation and charming small towns. But if you’re looking to add a little western flair to your next getaway, check out the Cowboy Luau in the Poconos.

This exciting event combines the spirit of the Wild West with the tropical vibe of a Hawaiian luau, creating a unique and unforgettable experience. We’ll take a look at the best place to stay and things to do while you’re here, so you can make the most of your cowboy-luau adventure.

What’s the Cowboy Luau Poconos Experience?

If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend this country music festival, we encourage you to do so. There’s much to do during the event and each year has its own exciting twist.

Though the 2023 lineup has not been announced just yet, take a look at what the previous year’s event has had to offer.

Some of the best music out there in the country world was taking place here. People go to listen to great music from names like Brett Young, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker and Warren Zeiders. The lineup typically includes numerous additional performers. It will be fun to see who attends this year.

If you need more encouragement to visit, you can plan to have some fun at the country music festival. There’s often line dancing taking place. You could also spend some time winning a prize at the cornhole tournament. Some people love the hula dancing lessons that they offer.

The key is to get out there and have some fun during this two-day event. It’s in the beautiful Poconos Park, so you know it is going to be an exceptionally beautiful experience, too.

Stay with Us at Skytop Lodge

When you come to the Cowboy Luau, you’ll want more to do and see. Spend the entire weekend with us at Skytop Lodge and we’ll fill your day with fun things to explore. Take a look at some of the incredible experiences we offer right here onsite.

Choose the type of lodging that works for you

From our stunning hotel rooms to quiet cabins, you can choose the type of lodging that fits your specific needs. We offer a range of styles and options to accommodate you and the rest of your family. You just have to pick one of them to book. We do encourage you to book your stay early to ensure you do not miss out on this opportunity.

Treetop Adventure Course

One of the best ways to see the Poconos and all of its beauty is up in the trees themselves. That’s something you can do in our Treetop Adventure Course. Choose the full or half course to test your skills, balancing along beams and climbing to new heights. It is one of the most thrilling adventures you can have in the Poconos.


Do some fishing while you are with us in the Poconos. Often, after two long days at the country music festival, it can be nice to take a break and enjoy something calm and soothing. We highly recommend fishing here. You can do some fly fishing as a guest of the resort. Our Trout Stream is a great place to learn a few things about fishing, too.


The surrounding property is incredibly beautiful, with a wide range of animal habitats and towering trees to explore. If you haven’t hiked at Skytop, you are missing out. Our guests are able to explore over 175 species of birds as they navigate this beautiful park-like setting. Check out the otters, too.

It’s important to note that hiking on Skytop property is only available to those staying with us, so the trails are less crowded than others in the region.

Swim Indoors

Skytop Lodge offers a large indoor swimming pool designed to make your experience the best it can be. It is a modern, beautiful pool with a sundeck for you to relax on. You can also bring the kids with you for the kiddie pool or make this an adult-only experience by sharing one of the hot tubs available. We highly recommend a swim first thing in the morning before you head out to the concert (or to unwind with us afterward.)


Sure, you came to party with the best of them at the country music festival, but enjoying a few rounds of golf is an excellent way to spend the next day. Skytop Lodge has an award-winning golf course to offer, with 6,656 yards of fun to be had. Whether you are a casual player or a pro, you’ll appreciate the well-maintained golf course in the backyard. It’s a mountain-style track, which provides some stunning rolling hills and wide fairways. Book a tee time at Skytop Lodge a few weeks ahead of your stay.

Archery Lessons

Have you always wanted to spend some time learning archery? While you’re visiting us this week, take some archery lessons from a pro. These are about an hour long, and you can bring up to six people with you. You’ll learn about archery and get to practice on the full course. It’s an intense and fun experience that you can carry back with you home. Many of our guests fall in love with this sport.

Dine in Style

Skytop Lodge has a number of fantastic dining experiences for you to enjoy while you’re visiting. Each one offers some fabulous food and ambiance. Windsor is the perfect location for breakfast or dinner when you want traditional, high-quality meals. We encourage you to check out Lakeview for the fantastic lake views but also the contemporary Italian cuisine served here.

After a long night at the concert, you’ll appreciate Corner Roast for some locally roasted, fresh coffee. You can also check out the Library Lounge for a cocktail or a glass of wine. You may also love The Taproom, which offers a bistro-style experience with fantastic food.

Weekly Activities

Skytop Lodge works to make the entire experience of visiting us enjoyable and different each time. That’s why we also offer a list of Weekly Events that we encourage you to check out before you arrive. This is an excellent way to find out what’s really happening around the Lodge and to find activities perfect for you. You could do some relaxing or spend some time on an adventure. Check out our Weekly Schedule to see what you can expect.
