Our group of family and friends (7 total) stayed in one of the Holiday Cottages. We really enjoyed the campground. The pool is big, clean and fun! The water slides on site looked like a lot of fun but we didn't do them this trip. The golf carts are tons of fun and a must if you are going. Our...

Our family planned a Christmas in July summer trip to Lake Rudolph and Holiday World in Santa Claus, IN. We stayed at Lake Rudolph in an RV. Overall, the campground was fine for our 3 night stay, but I have noted a few points below: THE GOOD: 1) Easy check in and inexpensive golf cart rentals ($40 daily) 2)Free regular...

Rented one of their RVs for a family vacation to Holiday World. Check-in was fast and easy. The first golfcart we got wouldn't make it up the hill to our RV. The second golfcart was able to make it, but was extremely slow, as we were commonly passed by other 6 passenger carts loaded down with people and gear. The...

We rented the accessible Holiday Cottage because our daughter uses a chair and renting a cabin was our only option. There was 4 of us total. The cabin was very easy to get into with a concrete parking pad and new deck with ramp. The screen door to the covered porch stuck and was a slightly difficult to open but...

Loved it. Easy access, friendly staff. Easy check-in. We even had an escort. A kind old gentleman who guided us directly to our site and even helped me back our 30 foot travel trailer into our camping spot. It would have been difficult otherwise. It had a very beautiful layout and it was pretty. We loved the golf cart parade....

I would have given more stars but also thought about giving less. We rented a Christmas Cabin for two nights which is $270+tax a night in season. We were so excited to stay because we have stayed during the Halloween weekends in a RV. So when I pay that amount I expect the cabin to be clean. It was far...

Our 2nd Annual trip with family and friends to Lake Rudolph. We rented a Super King RV that they have on site and it was very nice. It is a little pricey to rent their cabins and RV's as opposed to bringing your own, but fun was had by all and it was worth the extra especially when the storms...

We come here every year. We love the convenience of the campground to the park. The shuttle service is great, can be tough at peak times to get a seat but depending on the driver they can usually pack them in like sardines. They have a pool but not too clean but it is the only pool for the entire...

We rented a regular RV for a trip to Holiday World. We took 2 of our granddaughters and met our daughter and her 2 girls. We both rented a regular RV.
