Family Resort

Hi, We are looking for a family resort for an August stay. We have visited the indoor waterpark resorts (Camelback, Great Wolf, Kalahari) which are fun but more over the top than we want. Too busy and insane. Our main criteria is to have a nice outdoor pool (water slide , bar, or lazy river would be awesome!) . Other nice-to-haves but not necessary are other amenities like kids club, game room, bball courts, and suites (with separate bedroom, living room , and kitchen). We looked for weeks at house rentals and nothing really worked for us so now switching our search to hotels/resorts.

I think the only outdoor water park in the area is Camelback - maybe someone else on TripAdvisor can correct me. You'll probably find some resorts with an outdoor pool in the Poconos, but I wouldn't expect you'll find too many with a slide and/or lazy river.
