Bass Pro Shops / Cabela’s Santa’s Wonderland is a fabulous in-store extravaganza of activities for kids (and adults). Best part, it’s all FREE!  (Well, of course you’ll pick up SOME gifts while you’re there.)

A visit to the Bass Pro Shop Santa is a must-do for my kids!

The festivities kick off Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021 and goes through December 24, 2021 with lots of games and activities, crafts, and free photos with Santa.



Bass Pro Shops / Cabela’s is continuing the beloved tradition of visiting Santa Claus in-person this holiday season!

Families who visit Santa receive a free 4×6 studio-quality photo, as well as a free customized digital video that can be shared on social media. Additional photo packages are also available for purchase and print instantly in the store.  In addition, families can mail their letter to Santa, and bring home free holiday craft activity kits.

Just like last year, free advance digital reservations are required again this year instead of the Bass Pass they offered in previous years.  Spots are limited to allow appropriate physical distancing.

Online reservations opened on Monday, November 1 at and


In addition to free photos with Santa, there are free activities for the kids too. Here’s a quick rundown.

Santa Party.  The magic begins with Santa’s arrival on November 7, 2021. Families are invited to tailgate at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s for a festive parade to kick off the Christmas season, featuring Santa as he returns to open Santa’s Wonderland!

Free Crafts. Each week there is a different craft that your child can take home and make!

Write a Letter to Santa. Write your letter to Santa and receive an email back!

Craft and Activity Table. While the parents shop, let the kids make something to take home.

Note: No word yet on if the following activities will be available in 2021.  They were canceled in 2020 due to COVID.

Gaming Station. Try out the latest games at the Gaming Station.

Lincoln Logs Building Area. Before there were LEGOS, there were Lincoln Logs. Build your own rustic outpost.

Play in the Dirt. Who could resist, no outdoor gear needed.

Laser Arcade. I couldn’t get my boys (or my husband) out of here. Love the laser arcade.

Foam Shooting Gallery. If there is a line at the laser arcade, head to the foam toy arcade shooting gallery. So much fun.

Remote Control Truck Driving. This is a great way to test out the latest remote control cars.

Tip: I didn’t realize Bass Pro Shops was open ON Thanksgiving; could be a fun, inexpensive “get the kids out of the house with those cousins that are way too rowdy” idea.
