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.” 

The Events Industry Council’s Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program, established in 1985, is recognized around the world as a badge of excellence in the events industry. JodieAnn Cady, an independent event project manager based in Mason, is among the professionals in the inaugural class of CMP Fellows, a program launched last year.

 

Located in Onekama and built in 1900 as the summer residence of lumber baron and Manistee Mayor Charles Canfield, Canfield House was purchased, completely renovated, and reopened as a year-round bed-and-breakfast in 2021. Featuring 200 feet of Portage Lake frontage, the property now offers a lakeside fire ring and new dock for kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. The six-room house can be rented for small retreats and groups up to 125 accommodated for meetings and receptions.
