Thank you for reviewing your stay! We have been taking measures to work on many of our older Rental RVs and even replaced 20 of them this year. It is in our plans to replace more as we progress. Even with our new ownership we have kept many of the same core full time staff members that have been here...

A large campground with many amenities including a pool and water slide. Rentable golf carts for you to utilize to move around instead of driving or walking the entire campground. Most sites are full hook ups for your pleasure. Shuttle service to the adjacent Holiday World/Splashing Safari amusement park.

We stayed in a holiday cottage - 2 adults and 3 children - the first week of June. The cottage had one bedroom downstairs and a split loft upstairs. We had more than enough room for all of us and we loved the BIG covered deck. The cottage was very clean, updated and had everything we needed. We loved the...

We have stayed in this campground 3 times. First time in a king size rv, second time in a standard Rv, and most recently in our own motorhome. The rentable rv's are pretty basic but are always clean and fully stocked with pretty much everything you will need in the kitchen. The pricing is a bit high but it's worth...

We visited Santa Claus Indiana this December, didn't know what to expect. What we found was a town filled with nice people who love Christmas. Only enough to do here for one day but make sure you visit the lights at the campground and enjoy Rudolph's story.
