We stayed 3 nights to see the area & 1 night to wait out a storm in 41' motorhome with a towed vehicle. The park is an easy 8 miles from Interstate 64 (Exit 63) along a good state highway (SR-162). The park has several nice features but they were closed for the season. Some folks received an escort to... More

The Rental RV was overpriced for its amenities and cleanliness. The inside of the entire RV was covered with a layer of dust, including the inside of all cabinets and counters. The floor was filthy, unswept and not mopped. The RV was dated, ratty and falling apart. It was so disgusting that we didn't want to sit inside it all.... More

My sister and I made a last minute stop at the campground for a place to sleep for the night. This was our first time here. We were very impressed with the hospitality and relaxing atmosphere of the campground. We stayed in one of the cottages. It was beautiful and clean, with a nice screened in porch to sit and... More

We love staying at Lake Rudolph! We've stayed in a rental RV, Legendary Cabin and this year a Christmas Cabin. All are great, but the cabin this year was awesome! There's room for a bunch of kids upstairs, a bedroom downstairs, bathroom, kitchen, and living room with a TV. The adjoining deck is huge, which is nice. Renting a golf... More

We had a great weekend! Crowds were low and Holiday World was pretty quiet. Glow Parade was awesome! Meetingup Rudolph wasn't the greatest as he/she just stood there and did NOTHING but all in all was a great weekend with family!

My wife and I book a four day vacation at Rudolph Lake RV campgrounds. It was after Labor Day, the amusement park and water park were closed. Without those two activities open there is nothing to do in Santa Claus, Indiana. There are other things to do in other parts of Indiana but you have to drive at least an... More

This was one of our family's favorite campgrounds on a recent 18 day RV trip from NC to Mount Rushmore. We loved everything about it! The amenities are wonderful, and the bath houses were clean. The tram ride to Holiday World was so convenient, and ran constantly. We would definitely stay here again!

Oh where to start. This is well run establishment. The young folks working here for a summer job are very nice and respectful. Even as the season is winding down, it appears the campground is fully staffed and not lacking anywhere. There's a lot to do with many free activities for the kids. They don't seem to rip you off...

If you look at the website, you will clearly see that this campground has much to offer. We visited for 7 days and stayed in our own RV so I can't speak to the conditions of the rental RV's or cabins.

We stayed in two cabins at lake Rudolph and had a blast. Try to get Christmas cabin and make sure to get golf cart. It was perfect for our trip. A little pricy but when compared to lodging in area and closeness to park a very good deal
