“Convenience and value!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

This place was very convenient and I highly recomend it if you have a large family and a camper!! I figured out that it was cheaper to camp and get the discounted tickets than just getting the tickets @ the regular price. Also used the "early entry" option (of course we ended up waiting in line the entire time, but that's ok). The nice thing about camping, is you can bring your own food, and just step out of the park to eat.

We stayed in the original circle at an electric only site, and it is definately easy walking distance to the park. The camping supply store was convenient and very well stocked, considering its small size. The site was clean and yes, it was small, but I was there for the park anyway. Didn't try any of the pools, but they looked nice.

My only complaints were that the showers were kind of nasty, and the beach rules were pretty stupid. HIRE MORE LIFEGUARDS!! seriously. The beach is breautiful, but the rules are dumb.

Stayed in one of the cottages and it had a great deck with view of the lake. I would say get in line about 30-40 minutes before the park opens for resort guests as i was surprised at the long line for just house guests to get in. Well worth it to stay there to get that extra hour on the big rides before the public gets in, a real value! Also nice that they have a shuttle system since it is a bit of a walk to get into the park from the cottages, but i can be a bit of wait to be picked up so plan ahead. Also the sofa in the living area needed the mattress to be replaced as you fell in the middle of the thing but the rest of the bedding was pretty good.

The electric site campground is $60 a night. You would expect it to at least be clean. The bathrooms are very dirty - thick mold on the shower tiles, filthy floors, dust and dirt everywhere. The campground is set up so that you either have to walk through other campsites to get to the bathroom, or walk all the way around the entire campground to get to the restrooms. Campsites are crowded - they shove you in like sardines. Little to no grassy areas.
The ONLY reason to stay there is to be near the amusement park. They know people are willing to stay for the park, so they're quite happy to take your money and provide nothing in return.

We've stayed in the full-hookup sites at Camper Village multiple times. You can see my review at: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g50940-d254370-r71009698-Camper_Village_at_Cedar_Point-Sandusky_Ohio.html.

However, we went over the weekend of July 22-24 and the fulls were all booked, so we decided it wasn't a big deal and went ahead and booked an electric-only site. Wow, what a difference a few hundred feet makes!

The electric-only loop is literally three loops that span outwards with the restroom in the middle. There's no sidewalks, so if you're in an outer loop, you either have a long walk to get to the bathhouse or you have to cut thru someone's camp (which is never a cool thing to do).

Once at the bathhouse, there's no A/C (which there is at the one by the full hookups) and the bathhouse was dirty the entire time we were there. I mentioned this to the campground manager and she explained that there's only guys assigned to that area of the campground, so if there's any women in the bathhouse, they can't clean it. Yuck.

The full hookup sites are all entirely paved, whereas the electric-only were gravel. And, not enough gravel at that. We were tracking mud into our camper constantly. But it could've been so much worse.....(read on, it gets worse :o)

It stormed constantly when we were there. We were at site #151 on the outer loop. Thank goodness were were at that site location, because if we were anywhere between probably #135 and #147, we would have been waterlogged. There was a terrible amount of standing water. Literally, you had to coast thru it when you drove otherwise you'd cause a wake zone. There's probably nothing that Camper Village can do about this flood zone, but they really should just not offer the sites on weekends when it's going to rain. However, since they were likely sold out, not sure what they would've done to re-accomodate those campers. But management needs to put some thought behind that issue.

Regardless, our new rule is full hookup site or no Cedar Point!

We stayed at the campground for 3 nights. We stayed in the older circle, in an electric only site. The sites in that area are pretty close together, but suited our needs just fine. The bathrooms were pretty clean during our visit, although they could use a few more showers as they were VERY busy from 7-9 each morning. We used the pool one afternoon, it was very clean and had nice kids play area. They also provide towels which was a nice perk.

The only downside I can point out is during our stay we had a few good storms and after each rain our site would be completely flooded. We were lucky that the water would drain after an hour or so, but a few sites across the street from us stayed water covered for at least a day, I guess this is why they don't allow tent camping.

Overall we had a great stay. The site was an easy walk to the park, we had no need to use the shuttle. We will stay here again when we come back to the park!

sites are a little cramped and the bathrooms kinda dirty, but a small sacrifice to be next to the amusement park.

Room Tip: Try to get a site thats not next to the water park, it's very loud and if it's windy you get...

We stayed in the older part of Camper Village in a pop up in July 2011. We did love the location to the park. You could easily walk within 5 min and Soak City is right around the corner. Next time we will stay in the full hook up area as they have better bathrooms with a/c. It was over 100 a few days and it was wonderful to use these bathrooms. The bathrooms in the older part have no a/c, get messy, are out of paper towel and soap daily. Some of the sites back up to the roller coasters so you may want to ask the people at the front desk if there are other spots open to move to. Also, the storms off Lake Erie can be windy so tie down your awnings before you go to the park for the day.
