My husband's family brought us here for a few days so we could go to Holiday World. Even though it rained half the time we were there, it was so nice. We had a cabin in the back of the park. The covered deck and grill were great. We spent most of our time on the deck. The shower was... More

Normally we go on Father's Day Weekend but changed it up this year. 8 of us (My wife, 4 and 6 yr old daughter, my mom, my in-laws, my brother-in-law, & myself) rented a Christmas Cabin. It was worth the money! We have stay twice in a rental rv, and once we brought my parents' camper. Everytime my expectations were... More

Stayed 2 nights in a family cabin with 2 adults and 2 children (4 and 10.) The cabin was small, the loft was tiny and hot so the kids slept on the pull out couch. The AC unit worked and the cabin stayed mostly cool, but the unit ran 24\7 when set on 70. The cabin would not be suitable... More

We rented a King RV for 2 families that consisted of 4 adults and 3 small children (all under 7) and the size was perfect for us. If you have that many people and older children it would be pretty cramped. The campground was definitely busy and there are a ton of golf carts as people mentioned but they really... More

Have visited this campground about 4 times in the past 5 years. Most recently stayed in a super rv, but previously have tried the smaller ones as well as a cabin. We always travel with friends here and end up renting multiple Rv's for our group. Unfortunately the RV's are aging. They are "surface clean", but pretty grimy overall. The... More

We decided to visit HolidayWorld with our family and a close friends family for 3 days and planned to stay at the campground in a "Deluxe Camper" that looked great on the website, but was the exact opposite in person. The camper was so cramped we could not be in it all at the same time, the furnishings were less... More

We took our own RV. Downside: Our spot was difficult to get into. Not much room. It rained one night and we were in a mud pit. The park was noisy until around 11pm. There was a strong sewage smell in the area where people with their personal RVS stayed at times. The pool was overcrowded. Would be nice if... More

I read all the reviews for this campground before booking. My biggest concern was the length of time required to check-in. This turned out to be a none issue, as we were greeted and checked in within seven minutes. I did call before arrival, however, to inquire about renting a golf cart and was on hold for 25 minutes.

This is the nicest campground I've ever seen. The shuttle to Holiday World runs every 20 minutes. They sell discounted tickets. The staff is helpful and friendly. The sites are wooded and spacious. The general store is huge and clean. I strongly recommend this campground.
