For Kiddos

There are many activities for all ages when you stay at Skytop Lodge, like conquering the TreeTop Adventure Course. When you’re high up in the trees, you can see the Poconos from a bird’s eye view as you fly between trees and walk over bridges. Kids can also go on the hunt for owls and frogs with a nature trail hike on Pine Trail. Also during the month of October go into our Pavilion for some fall games and conquer our Hay Maze/CornBox.  

For Solo Travelers  

The Poconos Mountains is the ideal spot for solo travelers. About a 45-minute drive from Skytop Lodge is the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Become one with nature on one of the many hiking trails for all levels. Bushkill Falls is a nearby favorite. There are many waterfalls and fishing areas where you can enjoy the serenity of your surroundings.

When you stay at Skytop Lodge you can come back to a cozy room with amazing amenities. Book a spa day and treat yourself to stimulating, healing and innovative spa services that detoxify, rejuvenate and relax.
