Just four-months-old the Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, in Tannersville, Pa., has earned the title of Best Indoor Water Park in the country from USA Today and 10Best—a site that provides info on travel content for top destinations across the global.

Twenty water parks fell on the list nominated from among hundreds in the U.S.—and readers selected Camelback as No. 1.

 “The USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” award is a huge honor because it is a direct result of our guests’ experiences,” says Jeff Lococo, general manager and executive vice president, Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark.

Spanning 125,000 square feet, Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is the biggest indoor water park in the U.S., and boasts seven pools and 13 water slides.

“While we just opened the doors to Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark this past spring, our team is inspired to see that their hard work and dedication to deliver a fun, safe and quality guest experience has already made such a positive impression,” says Lococo. “There are hundreds of indoor water parks in the U.S. and to be recognized as the best indoor waterpark by families from coast to coast is truly rewarding.” 

It’s not that common for a destination marketing organization to oversee several of the largest meeting and event venues in community. Visit Reno Tahoe is the exception and recently announced it has officially taken over the management of Reno-Sparks Convention CenterReno Events CenterNational Bowlin
