Things to do

Lake Ariel—go wild for the wildlife

Kids will love the lions and tigers at the Claws ’N’ Paws Wild Animal Park or the water slides and go-karts at the Costa’s Family Fun Park. But there’s plenty of real wildlife to be seen in the outdoors, too, from turtles and raccoons, to bears and deer. In the winter, skiers flock to Camelback Mountain and Ski Big Bear, while in the summer, the many watersports centers are great places to learn to waterski or kayak. Whatever the season, auto-racing fans can pick up the pace at the speedy Pocono Raceway, and if all this sounds too busy, you can sit back and take in the scenery aboard one of the Stourbridge Line Train Excursions.


Watersports and hiking in Lake Ariel

Lake Ariel is a watersports haven; with everything from sailing and kayaking to wake boarding and waterskiing. Or why not slow the pace and cast a line or two? Bass and perch are a popular catch here, but Lake Ariel isn’t just about the water. Head to the surrounding woodland for some amazing hikes and bike rides—you might even spot a deer or raccoon. With many ski resorts nearby, skiing is a popular winter pastime. And after an active day in the outdoors, you’ll have the warmth of a fire and a comfortable place to kick back in one of the many Lake Ariel vacation rentals.

Lake Ariel has a cool climate, with the spring and summer months heating up to the high 60s, and winters being cold enough for snow and winter sports.
