The wifi is ok but the choice in television stations that my TV detected in my RV were numerous. Other campers were pleasant and we a wealth of information about local attractions.... More

This campground has two great pools, it's very clean and it's right across the road from Santa's Village. They always make great effort to cater to the children. Our annual trip to Santa's wouldn't be the same without a night at the Lantern.

Camped two nights at Lantern Resort to visit Santa's Village (7/24 & 7/25). This is our third time staying there and it's always a great place to stay. Campsites are immaculate, bathrooms are clean, staff is friendly and there are always activities planned for the kids. The Wi-Fi can be a little spotty, but internet access was just an added...

When we first arrived it was welcoming but could've had the person behind the counter a little more smiley. We had a wonderful site. Very very clean! Bathrooms were always clean and dry. Love the grassy areas in the camp sites. Pools were wonderful, clean, and warm. To be able to listen to music under water was very cool. Hot... More

We visited this campground in July while we went to Santa's Village. We were able to walk from the campground to Santa's Village. (You have to cross the highway which is a little dangerous, but the traffic was not too bad - better sidewalks or a crosswalk would be ideal). The campground was the cleanest campground we have ever visited.... More
