Swimming Pool

The Woodcrest Pool is closed for the season, and will reopen Memorial Day Weekend.

2020 Covid Measures

Please read these guidelines carefully to avoid extra trips to Woodcrest when the pool is not open. You can also download complete guidelines and schedules to the right. Snack bar will not be open at this time, but may open up as summer progresses with limited pre-packaged items. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adjust to changing guidelines. We know that this is not the best scenario but our staff and lifeguards are working hard to provide you with a positive and refreshing experience this summer.

Single Use, Drive-in Guests 

Under current guidelines in place for the state of Pennsylvania, we are unable to open our pool at this time for single use, drive-in guests. In order for us to better manage the number of guests in the pool, we need to suspend day use guests. A limited number of seasonal pool passes are available. We apologize for this inconvenience. We hope to resume this service to our community in the future as guidelines are adjusted. Please visit us regularly for updated information.

Seasonal Pool Pass Members  — We are unable to take any more pool passes at this time.

During the week, Pool members can enjoy regular swim time from 3:30-6:30. On weekends swim time will be from 3:30-6:30 as well. Family members of pool pass holders that are not included on the pass can enter upon paying the pool day use fee. At this time, we cannot permit public drive in day users in the pool area. We encourage you to purchase you pool in advance by contacting the office or returning the application that can be downloaded to the right. At this time we have reached our maximum number of passes that we can provide. We encourage you to put your name on our waiting list because as we assess how the new systems works or guidelines are loosened, we will contact families to offer additional passes at a prorated amount.

Campground & Lodging Guests

Our overnight guests can enjoy their swim time on Saturdays from 12:30-3:30 and on Sundays from 1:00 – 3:30. Family members of campground or lodging guests can enter the pool area upon paying the pool day use fee. Additionally, we will offer evening swims to campground guests when the schedule and weather permit. We will post this on the weekend bulletin board and have it posted at the pool.

Pavilion Guests

Swimming in the pool during general swim times will not be permitted at this time. Pavilion guests can rent the pool for a private party at a discounted rate of $225 for two hours or $125 for one hour. Pool gatherings will be limited to 75 people of less at a time. The waterslide will be available for pavilion users during general slide times upon paying the posted fee. Pavilion users can also reserve the waterslide for a private party as well. We hope to resume a more normal schedule as the summer progresses and guidelines change.

Pool Parties

Pool parties are permitted for groups of 75 people or less at the standard rate. We are not able to accommodate larger gatherings at this time.

We will keep this page updated as guidelines change.
