I’m the map, I’m the map!

Maps are important. Columbus had maps when he sailed to the new world. I’m sure Lewis and Clark had maps. Dora the Explorer is the map.

If you are making plans to visit us this summer, or if you’ve already made your reservations, check out the map below to determine where your site is. Or where you want your site to be! 🙂

You know what they say … location, location, location.

While I was out in the campground last week I noticed what a great view we have of the Wildebeest construction at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. After all, we are right next door.

Wildebeest, the world’s longest water coaster, is one-third of a mile long and it will thrill riders for two-and-a-half splashing minutes of hills, drops, twists and turns. Umm … and did I mention a four-story drop at a 45-degree angle?!

The location of this speedy rascal is across the way in our upper Dasher section. Here’s the view from across the fence … complete with lots of trees!

Holiday World opens weekends on May 1. Splashin’ Safari, and Wildebeest, open  May 14. Click here for the 2010 operating schedule. And don’t forget … we sell discount tickets in our camp store!

Ode to Camping

I came across these fun camping quotes and thought I’d share.

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.  When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong. ~ George Carlin.

Camping: nature’s way of promoting the motel industry. ~ Dave Barry.

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another.  It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness. ~ Henry David Thoreau.

It always rains on tents.  Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent. ~ Dave Barry.

But hey … there’s a silver lining to the rain. Because we offer rental RV’s. How cool is that?

Transformers …

Many of you know that we had an unfortunate office fire at the end of 2008. For now we’re located in a temporary trailer right behind where the old office building was located.

Construction on the new office is underway … it has been rainy and snowy so I feel for the guys. We’re scheduled to be in the new office by the end of summer this year.

When I saw the crane looking piece of machinery roll in I knew that I had to take photos. It looks like a machine straight outta Transformers. Photos below …

Hash It Out

Hashtags that is. Lake Rudolph is now using the #LR hashtag on Twitter.

If you aren’t familiar with hashtags, the easiest way to explain is that anyone who uses those particular characters, #LR for example, will have all their tweets congregated on one page together. It is a great way for all tweeps to post about the same subject together … and it is easily searchable. Or that’s how I’m explaining it.

So Lake Rudolph tweeps … when you’re talking about your summer stay or HalloWeekends make sure you tag the tweet with the #LR hashtag.
