It's a winter sports extravaganza at this state park: downhill skiing on 47 slopes, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, snowshoeing and ice skating. Après-ski, parents can relax in the spa or one of the lounges while the kids hit the game rooms. In summer, come here to hike, bike and golf.

A high-ceiling lobby with grand views and a huge fireplace sets the mood for big adventures at the resort's renovated lodge, which is quite posh for state-run park lodging. Rooms (from $109) maintain the living-large vibe and come with a fridge and microwave. Suites start at $128 per night. The resort fee for overnight guests of the lodge is $9 per day. It also has 34 campsites ($32 per night) with access to resort amenities.
