The Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind., is a popular destination for families throughout the Midwest, hosting about 3,000 people per day. Its many recreational amenities include the Santa’s Splash Down waterpark, Blitzen Bay pool, paddle boats and kayaks, fishing, mini golf and more.The resort’s 53 Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins are another family favorite, which guests have noted have “clean, huge decks.” Although Lake Rudolph’s southern Indiana location doesn’t get the North Pole’s snow or ice, when the time came to choose decking materials, the resort owners knew the region’s high humidity and termites, along with heavy use would take a toll on traditional wood decking.
“After reviewing several options, we chose MoistureShield composite decking because of its appearance and long-term durability,” says Wayne Utley, general manager of Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort. “We love the look of the composite decking; it is very attractive and easily maintained. Plus, our guests really like its smoothness, appearance and no splinters.”
In addition to use on the Rudolph’s Christmas Cabin decks, the splinter-free and slip-resistant MoistureShield composite decking is a key feature in the resort’s Santa’s Splash Down waterpark complex, where the product’s ability to resist moisture and decay, despite repeated splashing, is crucial.
When the Lake Rudolph Campground and RV Resort was making its decking list and checking it twice, it also recognized that MoistureShield products are an environmentally conscious choice. The products are made with 95 percent recycled content, including recycled plastic grocery bags and packaging films, and do not require painting, staining or sealing.
MoistureShield decking and railing is available in eight rich colors, including three streaked boards with the appeal of exotic tropical hardwoods. Realistic embossed grain patterns emulate the beauty of classic wood. Additionally, deck boards are available with side grooves to accommodate hidden fastening systems for a smooth surface finish.
