Next to holiday world. Clean and full of things to do. Very family friendly. Rent a golf cart and travel this property for beautiful sights and lots of visiting with other campers. Great pool to swim in and lake to fish in. Playgrounds everywhere. Camp store where you can get whatever you need. Shuttle to the amusement park. Can't ask... More

This campground is not for families looking to "get back to nature" or enjoy a serene "wilderness" experience. Our family of four (plus dog) booked a tent site over the busy Labor Day weekend, when campers were crammed cheek to jowl into one extremely dense population. Our immediate neighbors actually drove their golf cart right through our site to charge... More

This is a very large, family oriented campground. There are also many rental units and rental cabins. The draw here is Holiday World which is right next door. We stayed here for 5 nights, traveling from Ohio with our 30 foot travel trailer. We stayed in the lake side area. I would say this area of the campground is where... More

Notice that this campground is a family RV and campground resort so you will see other vacationing families and there will be kids playing. We have been coming here for several years and have found that the staff are great and the campground is clean, including the shower houses! It is awesome that it is right next to Holiday World...

I am not a camper and was a little leary about our impending stay at Lake Rudolph. I did a ton of research and decided that while a little pricey the best option would be to stay in a Christmas Cabin. Wow, was I surprised! The cabin was incredible. Full kitchen, nice bathroom, plenty of beds for my family of... More

First and foremost, if you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the RV/Campground you want. This is a family RV and campground resort and there will be kids. It's also across Holiday World which attracts lots of families. Curfew is at 11:00 p.m. but we didn't seem to hear a lot of the kids outside once we... More

We go to Holiday World every year, but this year we were only staying for one day and didn't want to drive home after a day at the park. We rented a cabin from Lake Rudolph. The campground is nice but a little cramped. They offer lots of things for campers to do while there, including golf carts. While this... More

Hello - Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. Our campground is a large campground and is a family atmosphere. It is quite busy during June, July and August as those are busiest times. With this in mind, it is not a quiet "state park" atmosphere. We do offer golf carts to traverse the campground as it's fairly large.... More

Our family took our vacation at Lake Rudolph in first full week of August. Check in was fine. They had someone take us to our site since this was the first time we had been there. When they were showing us to the site, the employee was hard to follow they drove carts way to fast.When we set up our... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Lake Rudolph. I apologize that you did not enjoy your stay. It sounds as if your site was not cleaned prior to your arrival. That's unacceptable and I understand why you were frustrated. I do have a few additional questions if you do not mind to respond to them via email at laura@lakerudolph.com.... More

Spent the weekend with the family in a Christmas Cabin and had a blast. This place is pretty rowdy, so if you are looking for peace & quiet don't go on the weekend. The only complaint I have is much like other reviews - the campground itself is spacious, but the rental lots are right on top of each other.... More
