We stayed here on a Thursday and left on Sunday. It did seem a bit pricey for a cabin but we decided to give it a try as it was right next to Holiday World.

The Good... golf carts, golf cart parade, free mini golf, pool, water slides ($5 but I really think they should have been free), staff was very friendly, a bunch of activities for the kids to do through the day, kitchen had good size fridge, range, microwave, etc.

The bad.... our cabin’s screened in porch was super dirty and had broken glass on it, there wasn’t enough hot water for more than one shower, our light bulbs kept going off and on, cabin slept at least 6 but there was only one towel bar (I mean come on, toss a few hooks up so towels can dry) have to bring own top sheets and towels, beds weren’t comfortable, WiFi was terrible as it having ATT in the area.

Overall we had a good time and didn’t spend that much time in our cottage. We had an issue with the golf cart plug and they came right out to fix it. It was hard to get anyone to answer the phone Sunday morning and we had questions about checkout. We could not find info on our paperwork though it turns out you just put your keys in a drop box. That would have been good to know as first time guests.

Our son had a blast and cried when we left. It is a good spot for a family trip.

We were very excited to visit. Check in was super easy and we found our spot with no problems following the map. The activities and things for our 6 year old to do were great. We all really enjoyed the putt putt golf. Prices for everything was very reasonable. The golf carts get a little crazy but renting one is a must. We know now that the next time we will be decorating the cart and joining in the parade. The free shuttle to Holiday World was great. We had a great time and are looking forward to returning.

We stayed in a Cottage, and we loved it! Very very clean, great amount of space and all the ameneties we could ask for (but for an oven mitt... no oven mitts?). We enjoyed the fire, rented a golf cart (you have to rent a golf cart, its so fun to drive around and see the super decorated golf carts!) and had a ball.

We didn't use the shuttle to HOliday World for the mornings because the shuttle gets there only minutes before rope drop. The crowd starts lining up at the front gate of the amusement park one hour before opening, so its better to drive yourself, take advantage of the free parking and get there before the crowds. We did go back for a lunch break, and used the shuttle for the afternoons. It was great and frequent. We parked the golf cart by the shuttle stops. Going home at night we missed all of the traffic in the parking lot, which was really fun.

Really fun, wholesome vibe at this campground. I would totally return!

Room Tip: Ask for a cottage near to the shuttle stop

I had high hopes for Lake Rudolph based on positive feedback from friends. Campsite: I reserved a deluxe campsite for our travel trailer thinking it would have plenty of room for our 29 foot TT and still be room enough for the 4 of us. We were assigned campsite 1D. Originally, where the fire ring was placed was less than 3 feet from the slideout of the camper at 3D. Where we had to park our truck to be out of the way of traffic, was backed in to side of camper and the bumper was almost touching awning supports. We moved the fire ring to other side of our camper, which worked but not convenient. In my opinion , campsite 1D and 3D should have been 1 campsite. Looking around other sites looked larger - I think we just got a bad site.
Golf Carts: the resort is huge so I get reserving a golf cart to get to the many amenities the park offers. The glow in dark golf cart parade is fun and people go all out with decorations. But the constant circling of carts for almost 2 hours after the parade, was a little excessive, almost saw a couple crashes. Wish there more limitations on driving carts.
Traffic: Campsite 1D was on the corner of a main road, the traffic of vehicles and carts was insane. Way less than half of the vehicles actually followed the 12 mph, not sure how the park can enforce this, people just need to use common sense in a campground. Considering there are kids all over the place!! My kids love to ride bikes in campgrounds and at 10 and 12 - even they felt unsafe riding due to the speed and amount of traffic passing our site. We did visit a Saturday-Sunday in August so I get that it is busy season, but it was insane.
Holiday World Shuttle: Super convenient and perk. Due to this I will give the resort another shot and hope we get a better campsite and try to visit during the week
Our main goal was holiday world, so we didn't take advantage of the many amenities offered. The pool looked nice but was so crowded we didn't swim. The putt putt and lake activities also looked fun but we ran out of time to enjoy.

Reserved a Family Cabin for a one night stay. Two families total 8 people. Cabin was just roomy enough for all of us but if we had stayed longer we would have needed two cabins.

Driving in- pull up to the check in station and were greeted and given our key, a map and directions. Friendly staff but probably could have explained the directions more thoroughly as we got turned around. The street signs are small and it’s easy to go right past your road.

We eventually got to our cabin and was surprised to see the campfire ring in the front. Definitely would have enjoyed it more in the back by the woods. Main reason is that it’s five feet from the road which had nonstop traffic until late at night. Mostly golf carts with teenagers driving as fast as they could. It really took away from the experience. Plus the grill is in the back so we couldn’t all be together. Not a huge deal but it would make more sense to put the campfire in back.

The cabin itself was fine, nothing really special just what you’d expect. It was clean enough. The loft is tight and was very hot during the day. We had brought a fan with us so we placed it in front of an AC vent and aimed it towards the loft. By the time we were ready to sleep it was very comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen are under the loft which makes the ceiling very low. Anyone over 6’ will notice!

We mainly stayed here due to the close proximity to Holiday World as this was the main reason for our stay, so we did not use the pool or waterslides at the campground. We did go to the activity center and played a couple of video games and air hockey. We could see the mini golf course there near the lake but didn’t play. We were a little disappointed with the lake, it’s more of a glorified pond. Really small and the dock and paddle boats looked very outdated. Hard to believe they charge extra to use them!

Overall our stay was fine for one night. We all agreed that once was enough.
