We thought we'd try this for the experience. We'll not do it again. We booked a king-size RV. It was dirty, worn down, and probably never nice to begin with. I'm guessing they bought new the cheapest trailer they could get. Low-end cabinets, linoleum, and appliances. The curtains were stained. (Not a small spot. I'm talking about a stain that... More

The campground is very crowded for a Monday/Tuesday. I feel bad for those in tents sweating it out at 86 degrees at night. The RV camper is adequate and affordable for a family of 4. Very clean and well taken care of campers. The Wifi is still not a solid investment and it frequently boots you off the network. Of... More

Have taken family to Holiday World many times, and have stayed in the campground a few times. The cabins are the best choices unless you bring your own camper/tent. Tuesday nights are very special with the decorated golf carts in their Tuesday Night parade. Yelling "MARCO" to receive a "POLO" response is very normal while at the campground. Not sure... More

This year was our first in one of Lake Rudolph's rental RV's after many seasons at a campsite. And I have to say, WOW, the older units are run down! I find it hard to believe people still pay well over $100 a night to rent these things, but they are a deal compared to the new cabins. For our... More

This was our third year at Lake Rudolph. We rented a standard RV each time. Each year the RV we were assigned was dirtier and more run down than the year before. This year our RV had ants everywhere. There were old coffee grinds left in the coffee maker and some unidentified food remained caked on the bottom of the... More

We rented one of the King size RV's at Lake Rudolph. They have had some wear, but mostly were in good working order. They weren't the cleanest place I've ever stayed, but as an experience for the kids, it met the needs. We took advantage of the kitchen by making our own breakfasts in the RV, and everything worked.
