“Awesome campground!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012 via mobile

This Campground was wonderful. So clean! The shuttle was great and drops you right at the main gate of Holiday World. My family did the paddle boats and loved them. I woul highly recommend this campground. Stop at the Candy castle while you are in town....it's awesome too!

Stayed May 2012, travelled with family

We stayed for three nights and loved the campground. Clean bathroom facilities, a large camp store, and very friendly workers willing to answer any questions. The shuttle to and from Holiday World ran efficiently and we never waited more than a few minutes. Will be back!

We stayed at the Christmas cabin last year for 4 days and 3 nights and have already booked our trip for this year. We had stayed at Lake Rudolph before but this time they out did themselves these cabins are awesome. We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers, a baby, and a toddler and everyone was happy. Plenty of room, very nice and comfortable, the TVs are a great addition especially for the little ones to keep them occupied. The kitchen is small but still very workable with full size applicances, the bathroom is spacious other than a small shower but hey it got the job done. I think these cabins actually had more storage than out house! Love it had a great time would recommend to anyone who ask

We chose Lake Rudolph because of the location next to Holiday World and we didn't want to stay in a boring hotel room. I rented a king size RV here with my husband, 2 kids (5 & 10), sister, nephew, and father. We thought the RV was clean, well equiped with everything we needed, and large enough to accomidate the 7 of us. There was a king bed in one bedroom, a queen bed and 4 bunks in the other. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. There was also 1 1/2 bathrooms.
We also rented a golf car. The kids loved it! If at any time they were bored we would jump on and go for a ride. It was also very convienent whenever we needed to get around this large campground. It was great seeing all of the decorated golf cars during the parade!
There were many fun activites for the kids to do for a small fee. They enjoyed gem minning, sand art, and ceramics. They also have a gameroom and we played a free game of mini golf. We also liked the pool and Blitzen's Kitchen had great pizza and ice cream of every flavor you could imagine!
Overall, it was great time with our family and the kids are still talking about it. "When can we go back, Mom?"

If you are looking for a clean and fun campsite, look no further! Located right outside the front gate of Holiday World, this campsite is the better alternative to traveling to stay in a hotel. It is as clean and well run as Holiday World (as Pat say's "it's as clean as a whistle!"). We stayed here and rented an RV the first weekend in October. I don't know of many campsites that have RV's for rent. The RV was very clean!! If you love Halloween festivities then this is definitely the place to stay. People decorate their campsites, children can trick or treat around the campsite, and there are many other activities to enjoy!!!!
