We were provided with meals, accommodations, and activities at the Woodloch Resort in Lackawaxen Township, Pennsylvania to aid us in creating family travel stories to help you plan your family vacation to the Woodloch Pines at Woodloch Resort, a family-friendly Poconos area resort. This feature will focus on all the things to do at Woodloch Resort.
Can we talk about all the things to do at Woodloch Resort?
I mean, there are so many things to do at Woodloch Resort. When I say you will not get bored at Woodloch, I am serious. Woodloch Resort offers a plethora of indoor activities and outdoor activities for families. There are Woodloch activities for every age group and every interest. And even though our visit, was between the fall and winter season this Poconos resort for families offered plenty of things to do. What I loved most about these activities is that most of them are included as part of the all-inclusive experience at Woodloch Resort. Even better, the Woodloch Resort activities are scheduled around mealtimes. You never have to feel like you have to choose one over the other or that you’ll be late for an activity because of a meal or the other way around. Activities start after mealtimes have finished and end before the next mealtime. When you’re ready to learn about the lodging options at Woodloch Resort, visit our Woodloch Pines at Woodloch Resort in the Poconos story.

Outdoor Things to Do at Woodloch Resort
These are some of the Woodloch Resort outdoor activities that were available during our stay at the Woodloch Pines. During the on-season there are even more activities offered, but as you can see from below even staying between seasons we found plenty of things to do at Woodloch Resort.
- Shuffleboard, Bocce, & Tennis Courts – We had never played Shuffleboard before but on a walk, with my 9 year old, he wanted to give it a try.
- Outdoor playgrounds – We found at least two playgrounds at Woodloch Resort. The first was located right in front of the Springbrook building. Another playground was located near the beach. You can find pictures from both in this Facebook album.
- Lake Mini Golf – On the beach side, behind the Woodloch Pines building, is a mini-golf course. Everything was there that was needed for a round of golf. While my 10 year old played on the playground, and I chatted with my teenager, my husband and tween enjoyed a round of golf.
- It was too cold for us to enjoy the beach, but from the beach area, Woodloch offers paddle boats, row boats, and boat tours.
Across the road, but still accessible with a short walk or a complimentary shuttle ride, are more Woodloch Resort outdoor activities.
- Rock Climbing – For guests from 75 pounds to 230 pounds they can harness up and climb the climbing walls. My teenager, who is afraid of heights, pushed himself and made it to the top.
- Viper & Junior Go-Carts – This was my boys’ favorite Woodloch Resort activity. My 10 year old offered his review of the go-cart. “You get to drive your own go-cart! You can double team which means drive with a partner. Your kid could get ready to drive in no time.” I’m not so sure about that, but I will say even with this being one of the most popular things to do at Woodloch, we waited almost no time between turns. The staff person was great rotating between the Junior Go-Carts for shorter drivers and Viper Go-Carts for teenagers and adults. During our stay, both styles of go-carts alternated using the track. There was a second larger track nearby. I imagine during the peak season one track is for Junior Go-Carts and the larger one is for Viper Go-Carts.
- Archery – Not too far from the Woodloch Go-Carts is the Woodloch Archery Range. Guests 10 and older can shoot at an archery range with a bullseye and assorted animal figurines.
- Ring toss – Throughout the Woodloch Resort you’ll notice vertical wooden beams with a hook attached. On another horizontal beam will be a string with a ring. It’s an old-fashioned ring toss. We dare you not to get addicted trying to toss the ring to land just right on the hook.

Woodloch Activities inside the Woodloch Pines Springbrook building
Inside the Woodloch Pines Springbrook building where we stayed we found a few more indoor activities.

Woodloch also has these indoor activities available for an additional fee. I’m pretty sure my teen and tween will want to do these on our next visit.
