Staff is outstanding. Place is very clean and well maintained. Visit there every year and always impressed. Plenty to do for the kids and adults. Wagon rides and game night. Kids love it. Walking distance to Santa's Village.

We come here with our 4 boys every year for our visit to Santa's Village!!! We love it. We have so much fun at the playground, pool, and petting zoo! The staff is so nice, this place is very clean. We have never stayed in the motel so I can't review that. We also use the tent camping sites. I...

I went with my husband and 1 year old to visit santas village. It's a 2 second walk to the park, clean room and nice grounds. Has a pool, kiddie pool and jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was a little cold but everything else was a good temperature. It also has a nice playground area for the kids. They also have a...

Camped two nights at Lantern Resort to visit Santa's Village (7/24 & 7/25). This is our third time staying there and it's always a great place to stay. Campsites are immaculate, bathrooms are clean, staff is friendly and there are always activities planned for the kids. The Wi-Fi can be a little spotty, but internet access was just an added...

When we first arrived it was welcoming but could've had the person behind the counter a little more smiley. We had a wonderful site. Very very clean! Bathrooms were always clean and dry. Love the grassy areas in the camp sites. Pools were wonderful, clean, and warm. To be able to listen to music under water was very cool. Hot...

We visited this campground in July while we went to Santa's Village. We were able to walk from the campground to Santa's Village. (You have to cross the highway which is a little dangerous, but the traffic was not too bad - better sidewalks or a crosswalk would be ideal). The campground was the cleanest campground we have ever visited....

My 2 daughters and husband stayed here after a day at Santas Village. I wished we lived closer because I would definitely come back again to camp this year if we did. We stayed in one of the rooms. It was clean, beds were good, and the property was immaculate as well with plenty to keep the kids busy. On...

Great rooms. The views are absolutely gorgeous and it is very close to Santa's Village. My little cousins (and me, admittedly) loved the fact that there were goats on the property! Seeing as it's in the mountains, the air is clear and it does get a little chilly and misty in the mornings but it's worth it! The pool is...

We stayed in the motel and had a great time. The rooms are definitely outdated and could use a make-over, but in all honesty we didn't spend much time in the room. The pools are amazing, and one even has underwater music! The campground is absolutely beautiful, and you can tell they spend a lot of time maintaining the flowers...
