Kropf Fills Big Order for Hoosier Campground
Kropf Industries Inc., Goshen, Ind., built and has delivered 25 recreational park trailers for Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind. The resort calls them “Christmas Cabins” and will open them for rental starting June 15, according to a news release. These 25 new cabins feature a large loft, king bedroom, upscale appliances, a covered deck and Christmas décor. The decks include furniture and a built-in gas grill. The interiors feature an electric fireplace and three flat screen TVs with cable or satellite. Curt Yoder, vice president and co-owner of Kropf, valued the order at more than $800,000. Kropf, a third generation family business started in 1946, has been building park models for many years. Yoder called the Lake Rudolph order the company’s largest single campground order since the late 1990s. “Lake Rudolph has a large rental fleet. Up to now they’ve been all 8-1/2 wides. They opened up a section for 12-wides. We hope it grows into more business down the road,” he said. The company sells park models throughout the U.S. and Canada. Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort will open for its 53rd season on Friday (April 1). The closest lodging to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, Lake Rudolph features 218 family lodging options, including rental RVs and cabins. The campground also offers 200 full-hookup RV sites, including 100 sites with concrete pads and 40 tent sites with water and electric. The campground opens daily on April 29.
