“Cedar Point Camper Village -- an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We booked our full-site (electric, water, sewer) site 3 months before our June 18-22nd trip. Everything was done online and check-in was simple and we immediately had our tickets and fast passes for 3 days. We had spot #253, which was in a cul-de-sac right behind the Mean Streak roller coaster. A word to the wise, when you pre book, try to get a spot that won't have a ride running in your "back yard" till 10 pm each night. However, we just shrugged it off and had a few drinks with the rest of the campers. They really take care of the place...each morning someone was sleeping our area and even cleaned out the charcoal grills from the night before. There is a nearby pool (like 100 yards max) with a hot tub (actually more like a warm tub) but no one was using it and it was staffed with lifeguards. Even after soak city closed and the park...the kids still had a place to swim...pretty much to ourselves. Staying anywhere at the park gets you in 1 hr. earlier than the rest of the park. (and yes, all the folks from the campers, cottages, and hotel breakers DO create a line at 8:45 am) However, you can get in right away and be on a few rides (not all rides open at 9 am, but enough to get your fill). Anyhow, strongly recommend FAST PASS. With 4 people, we hit 42 rides in 3 days (all the coasters...more than I can count..even in the front row). We even had time for soak city and night activities. Enter through the soak city or marina entrance at 9 am. The FAST PASS was not needed till about 11 am.

Food -- we really did not eat in the park at all (brought it all in the camper). However, the one time we did eat a breakfast at the nearby hotel Breakwater Cafe....it was not good at all. Very limited and basic bland food.

We just got back from a very fun weekend at Cedar Point. Since we have a camper, we made reservations at Camper Village - part of the Cedar Point complex of resorts. The campground was very clean and well maintained. All paved sites, with a picnic table and grill. As others already stated, the sites do not have campfire rings, but that was fine with us since we were at the park until late in the evenings and having a campfire wasn't really necessary. We took advantage of the lower admission price for staying on park property, as well as the early entry to the park. We would go to the park first thing in the morning and then we came back to our camper, cooked a late lunch, swam at the campground pool for a few hours to cool off and then headed back to the park in the evening. The entire park (Cedar Point included) was very clean and beautiful. I would go back both to the amusement park and to this campground!

After much research, we decided to stay at Camper Village and take advantage of the location, early entry, and the discounted ticket rate of $32. For all of those things, it was definitely worth it. It was also nice to come back and take a break at the Camper Village pool and hot tub. We were very happy with the campground. We stayed in the Lighthouse Village section which was all paved with nice metal picnic tables. The grounds and bath houses were very clean and we routinely saw maintenance staff during our stay. The sites are close, like all private campgrounds, but we had shrubs and a tree between our sites for some privacy. Without campfires or bikes, the campground was very quiet and relaxing. We walked the little path down to the beach and out to the pier. My husband is not a huge theme park fan, but he said that he would be willing to return because he really enjoyed the campground. The price is a little steep, but at least you are getting nice, clean facilities for your money!

Room Tip: Lighthouse village sites were great!

Full hook-up available for your RV. But, no tree's and no campfires allowed. It's pretty loud too. Convenient walk to the parks though!

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.
