The First Cookout of the Season

First and foremost, Memorial Day is the perfect excuse to get outside and grill burgers, hot dogs, barbecue chicken, and corn on the cob. Our first cookout of the season always lands on this popular holiday weekend, much to the excitement of our guests. The smell of the grills blankets our property, alluring hundreds of kids and adults. Typical grill fare is paired with fresh watermelon, baked beans, potato chips, corn on the cob, and dessert.

Lake Teedyuskung Excitement

The temperature typically sits in the ideal low-70s, while the sun is almost always shining here in Hawley, PA. Late May ushers hundreds of children and adults alike into Lake Teedyuskung. Woodloch is one of the only Pocono Mountains resorts to have exclusive access to a large secluded lake. Guests are free to use our complimentary rowboats, kayaks, SUPs, and sailboats all weekend long. The calming, deep blue water is home to a thriving turtle population; many guests also spot bald eagles, blue herons, and Canadian geese. The surrounding forest is home to beautiful white-tailed deer, cute porcupines, shy black bears, and adorable foxes. If you’re interested in water-skiing or a scenic boat tour, meet at the Teahouse Dock in the early afternoon.
