Holiday Spirit Reigns in Santa Claus, IN

Holiday Spirit Reigns in Santa Claus, IN
The mere thought of visiting a town called Santa Claus is enough to lift anyone's spirits. The prospect is even more inviting when you discover Indiana's best RV resort located near the heart of all the action. When you stay at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort, you'll enjoy the whimsy and warm feeling of the holidays that emanate from this small town all year, while partaking in a camping experience like no other.  

Santa Claus Museum

Joys of Christmases from yesteryear come alive at the Santa Claus Museum & Village. This one-of-a-kind attraction houses photographs and artifacts that chronicle how the little community of Santa Fe, Indiana evolved into the present-day town of Santa Claus. If your children haven't written their letters to Santa yet, they can take a seat at the antique school desk and write out what it is they'd like to receive this year.

Stop by the original Santa Clause Post Office and see where thousands of letters are mailed to Santa each year. During the Christmas season, there is even a special picture postmark that you can get to cancel the postage stamps on your holiday mail, a tradition since 1983, with a new design selected each year from a local high school art student.  

Santa Claus Christmas Store

A trip through the Christmas Store will fill your senses with the magic of the holidays. This charming establishment contains twinkling lights and every imaginable type of ornament, including a selection of customizable options. There is an impressive selection of Christmas villages so you can add to, or start, your collection, plus scrumptious cookies and fudge. Don't forget to fulfill a tradition and meet the friendly Santa who is available for chats and photos.  

Lake Rudolph RV Resort

Experience family-friendly fun at Lake Rudolph, located right next to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari! Our award-winning campground offers exciting on-site amenities such as Santa's SplashDown WaterPark, featuring multiple water slides and the popular Dasher Splasher Splash Pad. At the Blitzen Kitchen, you can order a delicious pizza for dinner with free delivery right to your campsite, plus a selection of snacks and ice cream treats.

Other amenities include a 3,700 square foot family swimming pool, two playgrounds, two basketball courts, two game rooms, miniature golf, gem mining, or volleyball and kayaking near the 7-acre stocked fishing lake.

During the holiday season, the celebration comes to life at Lake Rudolph with special activities and an incredible light show. Plan your trip as a part of Rudolph's Family Christmas package and enjoy the Santa Claus Land of Lights, a 1.2-mile long light show that's one of the largest in the U.S. This unique attraction tells the story of Christmas with bright, twinkling lights and stunning storyboards, plus a family photo with Rudolph to culminate the experience.

Whether you're a Christmas newbie or an experienced veteran, take a weekend, gather the family, and head on down to Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort for memories that will last a lifetime!
