Santa's Village In Muskoka: Perfect Vacation For Families (And A Giveaway For You!)

Update: Congratulations to Kathryn on winning! Enjoy!

Have you ever heard of Santa's Village? If you have children, it's one of the best parts about vacationing to Muskoka. In Muskoka's Enchanted Forest, halfway between the North Pole and the equator on the 45th parallel, is... Santa's summer home! Yes, it's pretty awesome that Santa lives in Muskoka during the summer months, isn't it?

Kids will love it because it has two theme parks, a day camp, animals, and a family campground, where children of all ages can visit Santa, enjoy rides, and take part in many of the fun, family-friendly activities. And of course, children can chat with Santa! Why wait until December when they can see the jolly old man in July?

Santa's Village has been around for over 58 years, and it's truly a magical place to visit. In 2010, Santa's Whispering Pines Campground was modernized and upgraded and now includes 11 new cabins, 2 yurts, and 50 new campsites. It's actually been voted Best Campground in Muskoka for the past two years!



New this year: the Village's Spray 'n' Play Beach and Splash Pad is even larger than before and there's even a brand-new Bungee Trampoline in Sportsland. Sportsland also has go-karts, mini-golf, laser tag, and more, so older kids can have as much fun as the little ones.

The attractions are awesome and include a roller coaster safe for the entire family, a riverboat and train rides, a merry-go-round, a petting farm, a great splash pad, the beach, playgrounds, and more. There are even organized daily kids craft activities, and family programs to keep everyone busy, like fishing, supper with Santa, hiking, scavenger hunts, and bonfires—the perfect summer evening tradition!



Santa's Village is one of Muskoka's most famous and popular family-fun destinations, and receives over 100,000 visitors a year!

Thanks to Santa's Village, I'm excited to be giving away a family pass to Santa's Village that's valid this season. This includes four passes.

Our family loves Santa's Village. We would be looking forward to the roller coaster - I'm hoping this year my 5 yr old will be brave enough to give it a go!
