This RV campground is uniquely tied into the adjacent to Holiday World and Splashing Safari. We have been here 4 times over the last 5 years. In fact, we rented one of their stationary RV's which lead to us choosing to purchase our own 32' RV Trailer.... and we have never looked back. The staff are predominantly local youth from...

We absolutely love Lake Rudolph!! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because some of the older rentals have bedding that is hard as a rock and the rates are getting too expensive. The park overall is beautiful and there is tons to do!!

This is our families favorite place to camp! There is something for the entire family to enjoy whether it's soaking up the sun by the pool, playing miniature golf with the family, joining in on the golf cart parade or trick or treating during the Halloween weekends. The facilities are always clean and the food at Blitzen kitchen is delicious....

We always rent a cabin during the Christmas season. They are roomy and comfortable. I enjoy having the kitchen and grill to prepare our food in, as dining options in Santa Claus are somewhat limited. The employees are always super accommodating and really nice. We have been renting from Lake Rudolph for many years. My only concern is that while...

We definitely go back to this campsite. We rented the RV and tent site. There are so many things you can do at the campsite. I recommend to just go outside to buy stuff (there is a family dollar outside almost in front of the gate on the right side) instead of buying from the store inside the camp. Overall...

This was our first visit and it went about as expected. Nice activities from hayrides to outdoor movies to a DJ and on. Very crowded and campsites are very close to each other with little privacy. This is a very large campground and offer many golf carts to rent. My issue here was the rules state you must be 16...

We have stayed here several times throughout the last 8 years and this was our 1st Halloween Weekend. Had a lot of fun on Saturday night. There was a lot of participation from the campers and the kids had a great time. After Saturday the place was deserted. We stayed Sunday and Monday night and had the place virtually to...

Lake Rudolph offers camping weekends 7 weekends prior to Halloween. They accommodate tent campers, RVs and offer Rv, cabin, and large cabin rentals. Better book a year in advance as this is a big event in southern Indiana. The entire campground shuts down access for two hours on the Saturday evening so all can trick or treat. It's a great...

We stayed in a tent and our site on Holly was lovely. It was away from all of the traffic and other campers. We had lots of room to ourselves and we were backed up to the woods. Everyone around was very helpful and friendly. Someone even gave us free tickets to Holiday World! It was a very pleasant camping...
