Visit Santa Claus, Indiana…America’s Christmas Hometown

Visit America’s Christmas Hometown
David Lovell

Visit a town in the Midwest unlike any other in North America. Located in an area steeped in history, nostalgia, and two of the world’s most recognizable faces, Santa Claus, Indiana is a must-see vacation destination. Known as “America’s Christmas Hometown,” the town features delightful street names like Tinsel, Snowball, Garland and Reindeer Run. It’s also the second home of the jolly ole elf himself, Santa Claus!

This festive town is the home of the award-winning Holiday World Theme Park & Splashin’ Safari Water Park. Explore rides and entertainment for all ages, as well as some of the world’s top ranked roller coasters and water rides. With a convenient location near I-64 between Evansville, Indiana and Louisville, Kentucky, visitors have the chance to experience all of the other local attractions that make this place so very merry.

Taste buds are tantalized with frozen hot chocolate at Santa’s Candy Castle, the nation’s very first themed attraction. The Candy Castle also features hundreds of flavors of gourmet candy canes, popcorn, and a treasure trove of other sweet confections. Across the street from the castle, learn about the town’s history at the Santa Claus Museum & Village featuring the original 22 foot tall Santa statue erected in 1935. You can also visit the original post office building where nearly 15,000 letters to Santa from all over the world are processed and answered by Santa’s elves every Christmas.

Find that perfect Christmas gift or personalized ornament at the giant Santa Claus Christmas Store.  Santa Claus himself can be found in this magical outlet, where children of all ages can give him Christmas wish lists and receive a great keepsake photo. Over 2,800 different unique toys can be found at Santa’s Toys, horseback riding is featured at Santa’s Stables, and a great round of golf awaits those who want to play at the Christmas Lake Golf Course.

Just five miles down the road from Santa Claus is the boyhood home of another world-famous face, Abraham Lincoln. From age 7 to 21, Lincoln lived and learned, eventually growing up to be one of our most beloved presidents. Experience life the way young Abraham did at the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Living Historical Farm. Across the street, take in beautiful trees, trails, historical sites and recreation opportunities at Lincoln State Park. Enjoy plays and concerts at Lincoln Amphitheatre, one of the largest roofed amphitheatres in the nation, located right inside Lincoln State Park.

Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort

Recently named one of the 11 most family-friendly campgrounds in America by U.S. News & World Report, Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort is the perfect place to stay while visiting Santa Claus. Located next door to Holiday World, Lake Rudolph offers great amenities and plenty of ways to stay.

There are also two playgrounds, two basketball courts, and two game rooms, so fun is never more than a few steps away. Play a round of free miniature golf, find precious rocks and fossils at the gem mining sluice, or head down to the beach for volleyball and paddle boating.

Design our Halloween Shirt!

Congratulations to Lauren C. from West Virginia! Lauren had our favorite idea of Rudolph being a fire fighter this Halloween!


Do you have an idea for our Halloween T-Shirt? We want to hear it! Maybe you have a great idea of what character Rudolph should be for Halloween … or maybe you think he should dress up and portray an occupation. We’ll reward you if we think it’s a great idea!

Post your Halloween Weekends shirt idea as a comment on this blog post no later than 11:59 pm CT next Friday, July 21. If we choose your idea we’ll give you a $100 Lake Rudolph gift card to use on camping reservations, at the Camp Store, and Blitzen Kitchen!

Ready to submit your idea? Great! How do you enter? Rules are below:

  1. The winner will receive a $100 Lake Rudolph gift card. Use it to reserve your site or vacation rental, in the Camp Store, or at Blitzen Kitchen. If you win, of course you’ll need Halloween shirts to show all your friends!
  2. All entries must be posted as a “comment” on this RedNosed blog post no later than 11:59 pm CT on Friday, July 21, 2017. You do not need to include your address or phone number, as we will notify the winner by email. And don’t worry … your email will not be published with your comment.
  3. All blog comments are moderated (Rudolph is watching remember?) so as long as they are not spam or naughty in any way, we’ll approve and post them. Please keep in mind that your comment may not show up immediately.
  4. You don’t have to actually design a shirt, simply let us know what you think Rudolph should be for Halloween this year! Example: Rudolph should be a bat.
  5. More than one entry per person is allowed, but each entry must be posted as a separate comment to be considered an official entry. Please post each entry one at a time and not in a list form.
  6. To enter, you must be 21 years old or older.
  7. We reserve the right to not use any of the submitted T-shirt design ideas. But in the instance that happens we’ll still choose the winner that submitted our favorite.
  8. Employees of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, Sun Communities, and their immediate family members are not eligible to win.
  9. If we receive multiple entries of the same t-shirt idea (and decide to choose that design), the entry received first (time-stamped on the pre-moderated posts) will win.

If you are not able to access the comments section of this blog post, you may also email your idea to info@lakerudolph.com.

Glamour Camping!

We’re probably in your own backyard!

Recently we were included in a ‘Glamour Camping’ article. Here’s the run-down …

Glamour Camping—Your best vacation may be in your own back yard

Privately owned campground resorts — all accessible within a two- or three-hour drive from Indianapolis — are also upping their antes to compete with larger camping destinations and theme parks in southern states much further away.bunk-beds-in-super-king-size-rental-rv

“With parents and their kids leading such busy lives, we offer the chance to spend quality family time with each other in a fun, safe outdoor atmosphere,” said Dave Lovell, Resort Marketing Manager at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind. Lake Rudolph is one of the top ten best campgrounds for families in the United States according to TravelChannel.com, named a Top Destination RV Park by Good Sam, and a two-time National RV Park of the Year; and is the closest lodging and camping to Holiday World Theme Park & Splashin’ Safari Water Park. Open May through October, Halloween is one of their busiest times and lasts for seven weeks beginning mid-September.

But the fun doesn’t end there; you can stay in one of their Christmas Cabins the first three weekends of December while visiting the town of Santa Claus and the famous Santa Claus Christmas Store located at 33 N. Kringle Place. You will love the smell of gingerbread and freshly baked goods the minute you walk through the door. Santa Claus, Indiana is proud to be one of only two towns in the world with that name and is known as “America’s Christmas Hometown.” Santa’s Elves, a group located there, has been responding to children’s letters from around the world since 1914. In the last three years, Lake Rudolph resort invested several million dollars into the property, adding a water park, spray grounds and a new miniature golf course; upgrading Wifi capabilities; adding dozens more cabins and cottages: and improving roads, buildings and playgrounds. Lake Rudolph’s family fun amenities include Santa’s SplashDown WaterPark, the giant Blitzen Bay swimming pool, Dasher Splasher splash pad, playgrounds, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, fishing, paddleboats, kayaks, gem mining, mini golf, game rooms, camp store, Blitzen Kitchen Ice Cream & Pizza, and much more. Visitors can rent golf carts to cruise around the grounds, or hop on a shuttle bus for a ride to Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari right next door.

Don’t have an RV? No problem, of the 516 sites available, 284 are equipped with an RV, cabin or cottage available to rent and ready to go. “Lake Rudolph continues to add luxury vacation rentals,” Lovell said. “We’ve completed a new section featuring 14 brand-new Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins available for the 2017 season, and we’re also adding 25 more Holiday Cottages.” Bring your own RV or tent, Lake Rudolph also offers several options including full-hook up sites with concrete pads.”
