My 2 children (ages 7 and 3), my husband and I spent three days at Santa's village last August. We had a fantastic time. We stayed across the road at the whispering pines campground. I had requested that we be close to the washroom as we had little one in the process of potty training. Our campsite was quite a... More

This place is awesome. Why didn't we go there before? Kids loved taking pictures with Santa in his cabin. Mrs. Clause was really nice. After lots of pictures with Santa and after we fed the lamas and goats, we went tree trekking. Oh what fun that was. Kids and some adult kids had a blast. We warmed up by the... More

Visited with 67 year old dad and three year old son. Enjoyed our visit and almost every staff member was friendly. Enjoyed the activities such as gingerbread man decorating and had a great Visit with Santa. We were disappointed there were no reindeer but not a deal breaker. Will return for a summer visit.

My family and I stayed at Whispering Pines across the street in a pop-tent trailer. It was an amazing experience. My, at the time, 2 (literally almost 3) year old had the time of her life; and even got to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. Her favorite ride was not a ride at all, it was slides. She really love... More

I have been coming to the park since 1961 and have seen it grow and evolve over the last six decades. My daughter even worked as an elf and was on the youth Board of Directors. Her role was to 'test' out new rides to see if they were great fun for kids and to give feedback on the operation... More

The park is very dated and very expensive. There are not too many rides, but it is fun for ages 5 and under.

Had a great visit to Santa's Village. We were 4 adults, one in her 90's. Had our picture taken with Santa. Rode the little train, went for a ride in Santa's summer sleigh, fed the reindeer, said a prayer in the chapel, had ice cream cones, played mini golf. Had a great day. Highly recommend.
