we've stayed at lake Rudolph twice, one in a cabin, the other in a rental RV. Both experiences were excellent. The camp ground is huge, but well organized, has beautiful tree covered private sites, tons of things for kids to do, sparkling pools, a well stocked, reasonably prices company store, reasonable rates and within seconds of Holiday World. The cabin... More

We visited Santa Claus Indiana this December, didn't know what to expect. What we found was a town filled with nice people who love Christmas. Only enough to do here for one day but make sure you visit the lights at the campground and enjoy Rudolph's story.

We stayed in one of the cabins. It was nice and clean. We stayed for three nights. There was so much to do. Holiday World was right next door and the camp had a shuttle that took us right to the gate. We rented a golf cart,which I totally recommend. If you get a cart,be sure to bring stuff to... More

Our family traveled to Santa Claus to visit Holiday World, and stayed at Camp Rudolph. What a great place! Clean, spacious and fun! When we return next summer, we will not need to go to Holiday World, there is more than enough to keep the kids (3 and 8) busy. Pools, water slides and activities galore. Kids loved the golf...

But know what you're getting into! My family and I stayed over one of the Halloween weekends. Yes, it was packed. Yes there were a lot of golf carts. Yes it was not traditional camping. But we didn't come for that. We came because it is a destination camp near another destination: holiday world! If you don't like crowds, you're... More

We came here on 4th of July weekend and had a blast. We loved the spacious king sized camper with plenty of room for 5 people. It was very well kept and clean! We also rented a six-seater golf cart which we decorated for the parade and had a blast! Just remember, Red Robin....YUM!(They say this when you pass a... More

I would love to review this campground, but unfortunately, I am sitting in a long line at the entrance to the campground that is not moving.

We stay in the RV's because the Cabins are priced to high for us. We love all the decorations. Wish there was a discount for coming on Thursday might help long line Friday. Our kids love the weekends.

We stayed for a few days and had a great time. The CG is very large so golf cart is recommended or bike. While the weather did not cooperate, we still have a great time at the amusement park and nice short lines. The laundry and pool were good. The only thing they need to improve is leveling out some...

Stayed here (was actually last year) for a few days with my sons while visiting the nearby Holiday World amusement park and had a great time. The RV's weren't all new mind you (we rented one of their on-site RV's), but ours definitely did the trick. Tons of different activities and amenities; on-site pool / waterslide complex (although we didn't... More
