Nightly Entertainment

At Papoose Pond we take entertainment very seriously. We make every effort to provide first class entertainers and quality nightly entertainment each night during our peak season which runs June 23 through August 24, 2024. We also offer some entertainment on Memorial and Labor Day Weekends, Weekends in June, and our Halloween Weekends.

When scheduling conflicts arise, (very seldom) it may be necessary to substitute entertainment. Some entertainment is on different nights throughout the summer based on availability of the entertainers. Check out CampersApp to find out what’s happening while you’re here.
