A Little Time and a Keyboard: Lake Rudolph rustic family escape {with a little luxury}

Lake Rudolph rustic family escape {with a little luxury}

Saturday, June 29, 2013

To kick off the summer season, we spent a weekend at the Lake Rudolph Campground and RV Park in Santa Claus, Indiana. When we first arrived, we were escorted through the picturesque woods to our adorable Christmas cabin. We spent two nights at Lake Rudolph and went home quite at peace and relaxed.

My daughter literally shrieked with joy as we opened the door to our cabin. I have to say, after looking into the cabin, I squealed with joy, albeit silently, as well. The Christmas cabins contain an amazing number of amenities. Nice sitting room, beds for 8, sink, oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator, large deck, gas grill, charcoal grill--check, check, check.......Just amazing!

The grounds of the campground are equally impressive. The lake is beautiful. One of the roller coasters from Holiday World actually zooms right over a section of the lake. So much fun! You can rent paddle boats for the lake or even do some fishing.

For more fun, the campground has a pool, playgrounds, a game room and more. They are even in the process of adding a mini-waterpark with slides. (The waterpark will have a small fee.) We enjoyed playing a round of mini-golf just a stone's throw from the lake. Tip: The mini-golf is free with your stay. You can pick up clubs and golf balls at the Camp Store.

During the summer season, the Campground is abuzz with fun camp activities. Whiffle ball, coloring a t-shirt, Bingo, mine for gems and more. While some events do have a charge, there are many free ones available. I sure everyone in your group will find something fun to do!

The amenities at Lake Rudolph abound. Whether you pitch a tent, stay in an RV or a cabin, you will enjoy Lake Rudolph. The rustic atmosphere is captivating and will help you escape your daily grind. Each morning, we were greeted by blue jays. Such a beautiful sight! We took a nice long walk around the grounds and just enjoyed being at peace. Plus, we were close to all of the attractions in Santa Claus. You really can relax when you do not have to travel far to see the sights!
Some tips: You will need to bring your blankets and towels. However, fitted sheets, dish soap and a sponge are supplied. Prepare to grill! How can you resist making smores? If you forget something, most likely the Camp Store will have what you need. Also, if you visit Lake Rudolph around Halloween, you will be greeted by spooky cabins and RVs during the campgrounds Halloween decorating contest.

I visited Lake Rudolph while trekarooing for Trekaroo. For more on my visit, read my Trekaroo review.
