Lodge Updates at Pocono Mountains

Lodge Refurbishment

We are nearing the completion of a multi-million-dollar renovation project at our lodge in the Pocono Mountains that will bring a variety of exciting new experiences and amenities to visitors of our resort. From a 40,000 square-foot water park expansion with seven new slides, to the addition of 30 new three-bedroom villas to the recent grand opening of our first full-service restaurant, Fireside, we’re giving families more ways than ever to strengthen their pack.

Construction is progressing nicely, and we’re excited to announce the indoor water park expansion is scheduled to conclude in time for the 4th of July weekend!

Finishing touches to our new outdoor pool – and some other resort amenities including our ropes course – are anticipated to be completed in mid-July.

Some visible construction will continue to take place at the resort through some of the summer, but a majority of the resort amenities are open and available to our guests.

Loose Moose

Our buffet-style dining concept is undergoing renovations to provide a more modern aesthetic while also creating more seating options for families during busier dining periods. When the restaurant reopens, it will feature similar beloved family favorites for breakfast and dinner under a new name – Timbers Tables.

To accommodate guests during the closure, a special Slides & Scrambles breakfast package will be served inside the waterpark daily from 9am-10am, and limited dinner buffet service will be available from 5pm – 9pm daily in Northwest Territory, a conference room located on the lower level down the hallway from the water park entrance.

While the Loose Moose is anticipated to be closed through most of July, plenty of other dining options at the resort remain open including:

  • Fireside –open daily from 7:30am – 11pm
  • Dunkin – open daily from 6:30am -  9pm
  • Freshwoods – open daily from 8am – 11pm
  • Hungry as a Wolf – open daily from 10:30am – 11pm
  • Buckets – open daily from 11am – 8pm

Expanded Water Park

We’re expanding the water-filled fun with a massive, 40,000 square foot expansion to our water park – bringing a total of 118,000 square feet of indoor pools, slides and water play areas. This new, expanded section of our water park will provide guests of all ages with several new slides to experience, including the Slidewinder slide, a new two-person tube slide making its Great Wolf Lodge debut at the Pocono Mountains.
