My Woodloch Story
Wondering what makes Woodloch such a special place for so many?
My Woodloch Story is a collection of Instagram pics, Facebook posts, blogs, and videos involving some of our biggest fans. From genuine and funny to heartwarming and life changing, over the past 60 plus years we’ve attracted a loyal fan base, old and new, who have humbled us while strengthening our resolve to do what we do best, bring people together. Check it out!
Traditions help form the foundation of our families. Things like insisting Team Murphy takes this lakeside photo every year on our summer Woodloch trip reminds us that we are part of a history that defines our past, shapes who we are today and who we are likely to become. Traditions matter.
We seriously couldn’t have asked for a better little vacation for our family. Woodloch resort made everything so easy and accommodating from the meals to the activities to the lodging. There was so much fun to be had and we took full advantage.
Never in my life have I ever felt so welcomed and accommodated. You feel like you’re an old friend visiting, it’s really something special. The amount of activities to do is just out of this world, ice skating, go-karts, bumper cars, swimming, splash zone, magic shows, trivia, hiking, snow tubing, & so much more. Every morning at breakfast we were greeted by our server. She had the kids special request of hot cocoa and a mound of whipped cream ready and cooled down. I really recommend them for family-friendly fun and memories or even just couples looking to escape to a special place.
From helping us bake a Woodloch Crumb Cake to debuting her cookbook during Author’s Weekend, Dana has been an incredible Woodloch super fan! Check it out below.
Water slides, peddle boats, go carts, zip lines, pony rides, magic shows, bumper boats, VR & Escape Rooms, archery, and so so so much more…. the activities, property, vibe, views, & hospitality were all SO on point.
A great work ethic could be both good and bad. Grinding can get you to your dreams but it also can burn you out. My generation saw our parents work and take little time for themselves because frankly their were bills to pay and food to put on the table. I’m trying to end that cycle with my children. In the blink of an eye they will be my age and have their own family. I want them to be able to know when their body and mind need breaks and when to take it.

Below are some of our biggest fans and a little bit of what they have to say about Woodloch.
“We could be sad that we’re leaving OR glad that we got 4 days of Woodloch family fun. Life lesson for Team Murphy as we head home from another magical memory maker.”

“Woodloch really is a special place. It’s owned and run by the same family for over 60 years. A family who greets guests at every meal and welcomes them to every activities, who enthusiastically cheers for guests at competitions and invites them to try something new. The grounds are beautiful, the food is homemade and delicious, and there is no way you could run out of things to do. We’re so grateful we had the opportunity to explore Woodloch and we can’t wait to return.”

“The hardest part every time is leaving Woodloch this place just brings out the best in families. From the fun activities, shows and food you couldn’t ask for a better place to spend time with the family. I have been to many resorts and no one has come close to being the kindest and most welcoming staff. Until next time.”

“When we drove up to Woodloch, fall had just begun to touch the Poconos, and the leaves had just started to turn, I was in love instantly.”
“If you have ever watched Dirty Dancing, Woodloch reminds me of the movie. Helpful staff, fun games and activities, and so much more. It would truly be an understatement if I said I can’t wait to go back. I have a feeling that Woodloch will be a family vacation tradition for years to come.”

“What is your biggest challenge when planning a family vacation? For me, it’s making sure all the kids are happy and entertained. When the kids’ ages range from 7 years old to 2 years old, it can be a challenge to please everyone.
That’s why we love to go to Woodloch!”

“We discovered a special place for families, where it feels like you’ve returned to the good ol’ days. If you’ve seen the movie Dirty Dancing, Woodloch feels like the resort from that movie with old-fashioned family values and fun. There are more family-friendly activities than any resort we’ve stayed at that are included with your stay, such as bumper cars, go karts, junior go karts, ice skating, snow tubing, rock climbing, cupcake decorating, archery, an indoor water park, and so much more!”

With two very active kids playing multiple sports each per season and my husband and I both working full time jobs we are constantly on the go and have little time to getaway. When we do get away, Woodloch Resort has become our go-to spot. Destined to always have a good time, my kids beg to get to Woodloch Resort when we are free.
