Lake Naomi in the Media
(Published 5-30-2007) Saturday, May 26, 2007 is the day Lake Naomi Club cut the ribbon and welcomed members to their brand new 48,000 square foot Community Center. This amazing $8.5 million facility will meet the needs of Lake Naomi-Timber Trails Club Members far into the future.

That's what boosters are calling Lake Naomi in the Poconos, a development that's part of a push in the area to attract a new generation of vacationers who grew up with campy ads for the late, lamented and heart-shape-tub-equipped resort Mount Airy Lodge, which closed its doors in 2001 after 50 years of enticing New Yorkers with its treacly jingles.

(Published 10-4-1999, Pocono Record) For those who look at the current landscape and see a growing number of fast-food restaurants, department stores, tacky strip malls and ugly billboards, and then wonder what the heck happened here, take a ride along Route 940. Up in Tobyhanna Township, just to the right of the traffic light in Pocono Pines, you'll find what can only be described as a land planner's dream, a Never-Never Land that leaves one thinking "this is how the Poconos oughtt be."
