It goes without saying, Santa Claus, IN knows how to celebrate Christmas! Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort is home to one of the largest holiday light shows in North America.

Santa Claus Land of Lights will open for it's 11th season on Thursday, November 28, 2019 (Thanksgiving). What could be better than driving through 1.1 miles of amazing Christmas lights, in the town named after Mr. Claus...? How about a free picture with 'The most famous reindeer of all', Rudolph!

The light show actually shows the Shining Story of Rudolph with thousands of bright, energy-efficient LEDs and dozens of storyboards. Discount coupons ($4 off per vehicle) are offered at 40 McDonald’s locations in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. See all of the locations HERE.
The Santa Claus Land of Lights is open from 5:00pm – 9:00pm CST on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays Thanksgiving through December 8, and opens nightly December 13 through December 29.  The show is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
A portion of light show proceeds benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley. Over the past 10 years, nearly $50,000 in proceeds has helped sponsor families at the Ronald McDonald House in Evansville, Indiana.

Families are also invited to stay in a Christmas cabin at Lake Rudolph during the first three weekends of December. Information about Rudolph’s Family Christmas Packages can be found at
