There is nothing like booking a trip to paradise, but you might be surprised to find your oasis right here in New Jersey, at Crystal Springs Resort. Our two beautiful hotels are perfect for families this summer, and once you book your getaway, then the packing begins and finding what to bring with can often become a hassle. We’re here to help ensure that you’ve got exactly what you need for your day spent under the lush greenery and stunning mountain views. Learn more about what to bring, what to leave at home, and all the fantastic family fun in the water you’ll have at our fabulous local attractions, right on site at the Grand Cascades Lodge.

What to Bring

When packing for your Crystal Springs vacation, you’re going to want to ensure you have as many clothing options for your stay but you won’t want to leave your swimsuit at home! We suggest you bring a few swimsuits along for your trip as there are plenty of fantastic water activities that the entire family will enjoy. It’s also a good idea to think about beachwear or some sort of cover-up while moving to and from your room, to the pool. Comfy sandals or flip flops will help protect your feet as well, and if you’re outside, don’t forget sunscreen! Finally, you’ll want to bring a plastic bag or sealable bag with you to put any wet swimwear or dirty items while traveling home.

Clothing Items:
Beachwear/Swimsuit cover-up
Comfortable shoes for the pool areas

Sun hat/Hat
Sunscreen/Aloe Vera
Smaller flotation devices: armbands, life jackets

What to Leave at Home

When planning your getaway to New Jersey, our beautiful resort is full of fantastic local attractions, but there are a couple of things you’ll want to keep at home! We know that large, colorful floatation devices are a favorite, especially when you’re having a blast, making a splash in the pool! Keep these larger devices at home, but feel free to bring smaller ones like life jackets and inflatable armbands

No need to worry about finding any tropical fish in our waters so ditch the snorkel, but if you’re inclined to see the coolest fish in the sea, head to our poolside aquarium! Finally, if you’re hungry, there is no need to bring in outside food, head right to our Biosphere Café and we’ll get you fueled up on sandwiches, salads, gelato, and more!

Leave at Home:
Large Flotation devices
Outside food/drinks

Family Fun in the Water

There are lots of ways to have fun with your family and experience our local attractions that Crystal Springs Resort has to offer guests. When planning your vacation with us, remember to have the right items with you to maximize your experience in New Jersey! You’ll feel right at home with our lovely Biosphere of fun this summer season and beyond!
