“Had a great time!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Who needs Santa,s Village when you have The Lantern Resort Motel and Camp
ground.I have to say after a 4 hour drive with 3 grandchildren and my mother and my daughter
and my older Granddaughter in an other car we arrived at noon on Monday.We got to check in early, everyone was very helpful when checking in.It rained the days we were there
but it did not stop the motel from keeping everyone happy from the 2 great pools,playground
petting the goats,the hay ride and the bed time story teller that came to are room to read the children.
P.S Santa,s Village was great too!

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago during the Luau weekend. Our daughter had a blast in her hula skirt learning how to hula and dancing. We stayed near the upper pool with the underwater music and it was a lot of fun swimming. We found the bathroom and showers to be very clean and everyone was very nice and acommodating. We liked that it was really close to Santa's Village. We would definatley recommend this campground and would stay here again if we were in the area.

Thank you so much for your comments. Luau Weekend has to be one of my favorites from the grass skirts to the DJ on Sunday night. My family has done alot of camping and we know that clean bathrooms are a must. They are checked and cleaned at least 3 times daily. I will pass the good words on to my staff. Hope to see you again.

this property is so well maintained, extreamly clean and the family and staff that run it are VERY pleasant. we have stayed there 4 times, and will continue to stay there for years to come.they have 2 pools,so it is never crowded at the pool.we have tented and have stayed in the motel also. the sites are wonderful and the room are immaculate.plenty of activities for the kids and the community fire pit with smores every night is always fun! Santas village is close enough to walk to and you can purchase your ticket right at"The Lantern" , which makes it ultra convienient. I cant imagine anyone not enjoying their vacation here!! thanks for another fun filled family trip!

This campground became our family's annual tradition. We've returned here four years and already have our 2014 reservations. It offers clean facilities, two pools (plus a kitty pool), two hot tubs, playground, animal petting area, and lots of fun activities. There is always something for children to do. This year we camped during the Luau and had a great time dancing. No other campground in the area can compare to this one. It is the cleanest one I've ever stayed at.

Going to Santa's Village?... then stay at The Lantern. Kitty-Corner across the street from Santa's Village.

I grew up camping and this is the cleanest campground I've ever seen. With 2 pools and a great playground for the kids. Our family of 4 did the trailer rental with all kitchen and camping supplies provided. Just bring your food & clothes. Camping at its easiest.

Our 5 year old cried when we left. We hope to return next year.

So glad you enjoyed one of our camper rentals. It truly is a great way to spend some time together with the family. You have your own space along with all the amenties. If you are looking to reserve a rental unit for next year do not wait too long as they are very popular.

We camped at The Lantern last year, and because we had such a positive experience we returned this year. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the grounds are beautiful, but most important my kids love the pools and the playground (especially the rotating swing - they call it the "pizza swing"). We tent camped again this year, but after a few days of sweltering heat, I stopped by the office and sheepishly asked if there were any motel rooms available. The staff gladly changed our reservation to a motel room (oh, and mind you this was at 8PM). The rooms were clean and comfy. Good coffee and helpful lady at the little store onsite, kids liked the hayrides and evening activities. We'll be back again next year!
