Lots of folks assume we own Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort.

We don't.

But we're kin.

Will's younger brother Philip owns and operates Lake Rudolph, which just won a big award.

The National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds name Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort the 2008/09 "National RV Park of the Year."

RV Park of the Year

There's Philip in the middle, holding the award. That's Dave (marketing guy) on the left and Wayne (GM guy) on the right. They're flanked by the association president and chair.

This is also the 50th anniversary of the campground. Philip and Will's dad, Bill, got it all started half a century ago.

Here's a trip down memory lane, starting with a shot no doubt taken from Santa's sleigh:

See Santa waving hello (or good-bye) by the sign?

I love this guy … who parked right next to the "no parking" sign.

    We would like to rent 2 campers for a Halloweekend, but need
    a map of the campground, as we want to stay in one by the
    gazebo with a view of the lake. Not sure which section it is in
    to make our reservations. Thanks!

    Camping at the campground next door is a great way to get closer to nature. Many families take long weekends to camp, so finding a campground that’s next door is often beneficial for them. Many of the campgrounds are within walking distance of a lake or other body of water and this makes it easy for family and friends to just pull up camp and enjoy the summer.
