Glamour Camping!

We’re probably in your own backyard!

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, 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.”
