We were on a family camping trip and decided to make a day of Camelbeach. We were camping about 20 minutes away and live about 1 1/2 hour from camelbeach. We had a great time. Very clean. There were plenty of lockers, but we felt safe just leaving our bag(containing only shoes, car keys and towels) on a beach chair. There was plenty for my teens to do(16&14) and enough for our 8 year old also. We saved extra $ by printing our tickets at home. My only complait is that they need more ladies rooms. Every one of the ladies rest rooms in the park had a line. The food was priced fair and was pretty good. We went on a Sunday. It was a little crouded, but we had a good time overall.

Buyer beware, If you like crowds and long wait times then this is the place for you. We are avid snow tubers and have been to many different places in the North East for snow tubing and by far we've enjoyed Camelback the least.

We went to the park on a Wednesday as to try an avoid the weekend crowd, right out of the gate I should have known there was an issue with the place when I had to wait over half an hour to pay to enter. They only had one window open to purchase tickets, and even though there seemed to be staff available they failed to open an additional window despite the ever growing line. It didn't seem like a lot of people as far as tubing parks go but they just took a very long time to process each transaction.

The Camelback website states that they have single tubes, double tubes and family tubes but on this day there was only single and family tubes.

They also claim to have an expanded snow tubing park that features fourteen runs but on this day there was only 3 single runs and 2 family runs, resulting in very long wait times for the family tubes. We waited 30 minutes for the first run down the hill and 45 minutes for the second. Not a lot of fun on a cold day and there was no place to go in and get warm. What they claim is the lodge is nothing more that a shack with a couple of picnic tables and bathrooms that was so crowded that you couldn't even turn around. We had to go to the car and turn on the heat in order to get warm.

This place does not live up to it's advertising, mismanagement, poor facilities, definitely not worth the price.

Camelbeach is a great water park for families - it's clean, there is plenty of personell to manage the park, and there's a wide variety of rides. Get there when it opens, though, as it gets really crowded after noon and it's hard to find chairs. Lots of school groups there during the week, but they all leave around 4 p.m. and the line lengths are dramatically reduced.

On the downside, the park plays really irritating music, and they play it really, really loudly, even in the bathrooms. That got kind of old after 5 or 6 hours. The brochures for the park claim the water is heated and feels great even on a cold day, but on the day we were there, the water was freezing. (Outside temp was in the low 80's and we were still cold after getting out of the pool.) One of the lifeguards told me they don't really heat the water. Interesting...

Anyway, despite a few complaints, my family had a great time at Camelbeach.

When we go on a family vaction we always try to find a waterpark to take the kids to. So, I've been to several of them over the years.

Camelbeach ranks right at the top.

The park is clean and well run. There are plenty of lifeguards. The lifeguards are very alert and take their jobs seriously.

We went on a Saturday in July and the park wasn't overly crowded. This is always a plus.

The food was decent for amusement park food. Prices about what you'd expect for this type of place.

The chlorine in the water was a bit strong and stung my eyes.
But it wasn't that bad, I've been in worse.

Overall we had a nice day and all the kids (ages 6-13) had a great time.

Definately would recommend.
