5 Best Water Activities at Our Family Resort

Sunny, mid-60s spring days here in Hawley, PA, have us dreaming about the upcoming summertime lake season. Not only does our top-ranked family resort rest on the tranquil shores of pristine Lake Teedyuskung, but we provide families with seemingly endless, complimentary, homegrown water activities. Whether you’re hoping to soak up the glorious, midsummer, Pennsylvania sunshine in a sizable rowboat, one of our outdoor pools, or with a serene half-day fishing trip, your family is in for the time of their lives this summer here at Woodloch, America’s best family resort!

Pool Games

Yes, Lake Teedyuskung provides our guests with 79 acres of sapphire blue freshwater, but there’s no denying the appeal of our homegrown, family-friendly pool games. Our staff is continually enhancing and improving these pool games in an effort to keep them fresh for returning visitors. These six water-based relay events promote teamwork, determination, and good, old-fashioned fun as your entire family battles for top prizes.

Row Boating

There are nearly a dozen ways to explore Lake Teedyuskung, including swimming, paddleboarding, and kayaking, but we often recommend row boating for families with small children. Throw on your lifejackets, hop aboard a sturdy rowboat, and paddle along the most beautiful stretches of Lake Teedyuskung. You likely won’t find another family resort in the Pocono Mountains that has exclusive access to a 79-acre lake.

family resortWater Skiing

Whether you’re a self-proclaimed water skiing master or an eager beginner, you’ll have no problem standing and conquering Lake Teedyuskung’s thrilling waves. You won’t find another all-inclusive family resort within 100 miles that provides complimentary fundamental water skiing lessons. If your kids can stand up during the entirety of the three-mile lap, they’ll receive a Woodloch Waterski Club Card to take home and show their friends.

Bumper Boats

One of our most popular summertime water activities here at our world-class family resort is Bumper Boats. These boats seat up to three young children, and they’re equipped with “hydro cannons” which squirt water at your opponents. Almost all ages — adults included — can crash, squirt, and shriek until the final whistle.


Spring-fed Lake Teedyuskung is home to eight fish species, including largemouth bass, walleye, pike, and catfish. Whether you’re hoping to just throw a line into the lake from the lengthy dock or venture to a nearby river, you’ll always be minutes away from a relaxing Pocono Mountains fishing expedition when you stay at our award-winning family resort.

The Ultimate Family Resort

A couple of months ago, we compiled eight reasons why Woodloch Resort is the best family resort in North America. Exclusive access to Lake Teedyuskung was high on that list. Not only are we a short yet scenic drive for 8.6 million New York City residents, but our family resort provides free nightly live entertainment, inclusive meal plans, and over 30 homegrown on-site activities.
