Plan Your Trip Today

Summer goes by fast, why wait?

Plan your trip to Santa Claus, Indiana, and sites throughout Lincoln’s Indiana Boyhood Home. Not sure where to start? We can help.

Explore holiday world and splashin safari

Whether you’re looking for coasters, nostalgia, or outdoor recreation, you’ll find it here. The town of Santa Claus is home to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari and so much more. From shopping at the Santa Claus Christmas Store, sipping frozen hot chocolate at Santa’s Candy Castle, or posing next to several larger-than-life Santa statues, this spot is full of family fun.

Did you know Abraham Lincoln grew up just five minutes from what is now Santa Claus, Indiana? Yep, explore Lincoln State Park and Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial – both dedicated to Abraham Lincoln – just a few miles from town. Or, drive 25 minutes south and find Lincoln Pioneer Village & Museum with a museum and 13 Lincoln-era cabins.

Check out these ideas and more by browsing through our list of Things To Do.

Taste Frozen Hot Chocolate

Craving pizza? Swing by Frosty’s Fun Center, Brick Oven Pizza, or order delivery to your cabin inside Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort.

Looking for something local? Try The Chateau, a local favorite just 10 minutes from Santa Claus. Or, sit outside looking over the lake at The Rustic in Rockport.

We love our sweet treats around here. From frozen hot chocolate, a variety of ice cream, and delectable fudge, we fully support having dessert first.

Relax Lincoln Pines Lakefront Resort

No need to get it all in during just one day. Take advantage of ample spots to rest your head during your trip.

Santa’s Lakeside Cottages and Lincoln Pines Lakefront Resorts provide one- or two-bedroom cabins with room for the entire family to relax. Or select from a variety of lodging options at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort… rent an RV or stay in a cottage.

Looking for a home away from home? We have that. Find vacation rentals like The Holiday House, Blackhawk Creek, and Holiday Guest House Suite in or near the town of Santa Claus. Or cozy up in a room at the Corner House B&B outside of Rockport.

Check out all the options including locations and amenities here.
