We definitely go back to this campsite. We rented the RV and tent site. There are so many things you can do at the campsite. I recommend to just go outside to buy stuff (there is a family dollar outside almost in front of the gate on the right side) instead of buying from the store inside the camp. Overall...

This was our first visit and it went about as expected. Nice activities from hayrides to outdoor movies to a DJ and on. Very crowded and campsites are very close to each other with little privacy. This is a very large campground and offer many golf carts to rent. My issue here was the rules state you must be 16...

There was a lot of participation from the campers and the kids had a great time. After Saturday the place was deserted. We stayed Sunday and Monday night and had the place virtually to...

Lake Rudolph offers camping weekends 7 weekends prior to Halloween. They accommodate tent campers, RVs and offer Rv, cabin, and large cabin rentals. Better book a year in advance as this is a big event in southern Indiana. The entire campground shuts down access for two hours on the Saturday evening so all can trick or treat. It's a great...

We stayed in a tent and our site on Holly was lovely. It was away from all of the traffic and other campers. We had lots of room to ourselves and we were backed up to the woods. Everyone around was very helpful and friendly. Someone even gave us free tickets to Holiday World! It was a very pleasant camping...

Drive from Ontario, Canada to take our family to Holiday world. This campground was huge. Though we didn't want to, we ended up renting a golf cart to get around. Very friendly staff, clean washrooms and lots to do for the kids. Mini putt was free too!! The golf cart parade was fun as well.

Lake side camping, has its privileges but also responsibilities. Have stayed here before. Honestly, not even for Holiday World next door. Our site had fire ring and picnic table. There was a concrete pad. On other stays we had a very level pad, required minimal set up. Our pad this time had a slope, toward the lake. Wheel chocks should...

Spend $2000 a year here and getting tired of having to book a year in advance to get a golf cart when they have 50 sitting in the garage when we arrive. Place is too large to enjoy it without one.
