1 Park near Santa Claus, Indiana
Oct 2015 - $34.00
This park has everything a family could want, from a water park, pool, miniature golf, playground, paddle boats, etc. The setting is serene with lots of shade and lots of room to walk. That being said, the management should be ashamed at the amount of litter all over the park. It detracts from the potential beauty of the place. We were given one of the poorest sites in the place, right near the activity center. I went to ask for another, and was given my choice of many empty sites. We chose a more private one that was very difficult to back into, but once in and level, was a nice site with no neighbors. They rent golf carts, which are a real nuisance especially on the weekends, with many kids driving them. If you go weekends in the fall, be prepared for Halloween mania. I'm told they are full much of the summer, and if all the golf carts are rented, it must be wild. Once the weekend crowd left, things were very pleasant so we opted to stay for another day. We would come back but only during the week in the off season. - padre

We stayed 3 nights to see the area & 1 night to wait out a storm.
The park is an easy 8 miles from Interstate 64 (Exit 63) along a good state highway (SR-162).
The park has several nice features but they were closed for the season. Some folks received an escort to their site. We did not.
The interior roads are paved. Some of them were narrow with tight turns & steep grades. The site parking pads were concrete, paved, or gravel. This is another park that doesn't understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad! There are a limited number of sites that appeared level. Those with a pitch had a single or double pitch. There is not much privacy between the sites as the sites are close to each other. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 amp), and sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. There was an outside table and fire pit.
There is an extensive tree canopy which almost restricts satellite reception. Fortunately, we asked for an received a site with satellite access. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The provided WiFi was adequate. Our NET10 phone reception was acceptable.
No designated fenced pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads as long as you don't mind walking up steep hills. There were bag dispensers and cans to collect waste.
For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. No structure was identified as a severe weather shelter.
Would not want to be here when the park is full. Probably would not stay here again if we returned to visit the area attractions. - bsb814

Stayed here in our 33' trailer, and overall the stay was very pleasant. The primary purpose was to use this while we went to Holiday World. Check-in was easy. The staff very friendly. The park outlay was very nice with well paved roads. Many "permanent" rental sites but those sites were well maintained. Backing into our site was easy with no issues. The site itself was so so. Being very close to one of the camp stores ensured we had a steady stream of traffic to include the rentable golf carts from from the campground, which we did get. But I have to say between this stay and our last stay at a TT in TN I am beginning to have a disdain for golf carts. The ones here even though electric, they provide charging stations, had this annoying beeeeeeeeppppp when placed into reverse. You heard this sound throughout the night even after quiet hours. Very distracting. The camp store was very well maintained but for the one item we did need, paper plates, they were out and not expected to get any for a day or two. The big draw is its proximity to Holiday World Amusement Park and the free shuttle which takes you right to the front of the park. The campground has a nice water park but it costs extra, I believe. I am torn between recommending this park for anything more than a place to stay for Holiday World. I do not think it offers much more than that. But we were satisfied and would stay here again for the same reason. - Jim in WA
