Enjoy camping?  What’s your camping style?  Each year, we take a family, camping trip complete with tent, fire wood, iron skillet – and then not much else other than food. We love it and consider it as close to ‘roughing it’ as one can get. (Well, maybe.) It hadn’t crossed our minds to camp in any other way – until we recently stayed at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort. We really enjoy camping in a tent, and preparing our meals over a campfire but this time we tried camping cabin-style. And we’re hooked.

Lake Rudolph Campground offered several different types of cabins. So it was a tough choice deciding which cabin we wanted. We eventually decided on Rudolph’s Christmas Cabin.  We enjoyed it so much!  It was the perfect size cabin for our trip, party, and plans.

Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins feature a master bedroom with a King bed, large loft with a queen mattress and 4 twin-size mattresses, 3 flat screen TVs, electric fireplace, gas grill, fire ring, and a very large covered deck. These cabins sleep up to 8 people.

Though I’m not sure that there’s anything quite like the smell of bacon sizzling over a campfire – it was really nice getting to enjoy the outdoor and camping scene while still having the use of full-size kitchen appliances. And a coffee maker. Because, coffee. Sipping on my cuppa-joe in the morning while sitting on the extra large (and I mean extra large!) deck was incredibly relaxing.

Types of Cabins at Lake Rudolph: Legendary Cabins, Family Cabins, Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins, Handicap Accessible Rudolph’s Christmas Cabin

The kids decided that the Christmas Cabin was the ultimate place to stay. They were so thrilled with the loft and that they were able to make their own personal space during our visit.  They would have enjoyed staying at any of the options available – but they LOVED the loft.

If you enjoy roughing-it during your camping adventure – you can do that too! Lake Rudolph offers several cabin types, RV rentals, RV sites, and traditional tent sites.  In fact, Lake Rudolph offers so much – that it’s more than a campground – it’s an attraction in and of itself.  When we arrived, we were surprised to see the sheer size, accommodation options and entertainment choices.

If you’re visiting during the warmer months, enjoy Blitzen Bay Pool and Baby Blitzen Pool once you’re settle into your site.  Or spend some time at Santa’s SplashDown WaterPark.  Note that Blitzen Bay and Baby Blitzen Pool is free to Lake Rudolph campers, Santa’s SplashDown current rates can be found here.

We’re looking forward to taking another trip and spending several days checking out everything that Lake Rudolph offers, and then hopping over to Holiday World for a day of rides!  We’re even considering making it an extended family vacation and renting several cabins.  Can you imagine all the fun – cousins swimming, mining, fishing, riding. It’d be a trip to remember!

They offer a lot of recreational options:   two playgrounds, two basketball courts, horseshoe pits, fishing lake, gem mining, beach volleyball, golf cart rentals, golf equipment rentals, miniature golf (free!), paddleboat, kayak and rowboat rentals, and two game rooms.  With all of that, there’s no way that anyone in the family will be bored.

Prior to your visit, you’ll want to check out their activities calendar.  There’s so much going on throughout the year that you’ll want to see and plan your trip around!  At some point, we’d love to make it back for the decorating contest during Halloween!  We hear that resort guest go all out to decorate their camp site and make it a fun time for everyone.

They offer a number of activities for kids.  A few of the free activities include: Bubbles with Rudolph-Visit and blow bubbles with Rudy, Wood Crafting, Family Movie Night, or Story Time with Santa.
