Camping Tip: Travel Coffee Bags

Travel coffee bags … because I can’t leave my Starbucks behind when camping.

Coffee-on-the-Go

All you need are coffee filters, coffee grounds, and dental floss. I only used the red because it was festive … and festive works since we’re in Santa Claus, Indiana. :p







What to Know About the Santa Claus Land of Lights

Haven’t experienced the Santa Claus Land of Lights at Lake Rudolph? Come visit us this year! Here are a few fun facts and what you should expect …

  1. Kiddos love the light show. Especially those learning to read. The storyboards are huge and they have a blast reading them out loud. Oh, and kids at heart have fun too!
  2. The light show tells the story of Rudolph and how he was born here in Santa Claus, Indiana. Rudolph dreams of one day leading Santa’s sleigh. As you follow along, Rudolph will train and work hard with a special elf named Artie.
    Can you guess what happens next? 🙂
  3. There are over 300 light display pieces throughout the light show! All the lights are LED, super colorful, and very bright.
  4. Tune into 93.1 on your radio to listen to Radio Rudolph. We’ll be playing all of your Christmas favorites!
  5. There are three different tunnels in the light show and they signify changes in time and scenery. Like when Rudolph leaves Santa Claus, Indiana, for the North Pole.
  6. The Santa Claus Land of Lights is the only light show in North America to tell a story in lights and storyboards! At 1.2 miles long it is also the largest holiday light show in a campground.
  7. Each admission receives a voucher for a free photo with Rudolph at the Santa Claus Christmas Store!
  8. $4 discount coupons may be picked up at at participating McDonald’s in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. Click here for the list of locations.
  9. You can purchase pre-paid light show passes online … and still use a coupon code if you have one. Purchase pre-paid passes at this link.
  10. A portion of proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley.

A picture is worth a thousand words. But we’d really rather you come see it in person!

Now … what are you waiting for?

The show is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday through December 14. Open nightly December 17 through New Year’s Eve. 5 – 9pm CT. Closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.







7 Reasons to Camp During Fall

Our top reasons that you should be camping during the fall season. Seven of them because that’s my lucky number. 🙂

Fall-at-Lake-Rudolph

  1. Weather. Um, hello? Cooler weather! I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather camp when it’s cool and I can enjoy sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows, and not be sweltering hot!
  2. Better Rates. Many campgrounds and RV resorts drop their rates during the fall and offer discounts. We have a Fall Season Rate.
  3. Scenery. Beautiful orange, red, and yellow leaves. Love those colors and that slight crisp in the air!
  4. Halloween Activities. Lots of campground and resorts offer fun, Halloween-themed activities. In our case, seven weekends of Halloween activities!
  5. Fewer Crowds. Less people are camping during the fall seasons so you’ll encounter fewer crowds. Unless of course you visit us when our Halloween Weekends are in full swing. 🙂 If you’d like to visit during a more quiet time, we suggest coming during the week … Sundays through Wednesdays.
  6. Fewer Bugs. Normally there are less pesky bugs during the fall camping season.
  7. Fall Food. Wonderful fall comfort food. Think warm Apple Crisp, Candied Apples, and One Skillet Chili.
