“One major flaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Make no mistake, Campers Village is NOT a campground but more for RVing. Last week was our 2nd stay at Campers Village in as many yrs. and we will probably go back next yr. I'd recommend that you try to get into the new section since the sites are much nicer (full service sites, concrete pads, better drainage, and many pull throughs) and a just a bit more roomy. The only downside is much less shade so if you don't have A/C, it can get pretty warm inside an RV. Pool is nice but overcrowded frequently. Shuttle is great to get around and usually short wait times.

All the grounds are kept very clean inside & out of the amusement and water parks. But the one significant, and common, complaint is the bathrooms and showers. Last yr the bathrooms/showers were consistently filthy. This yr. they frequently were out of toilet paper as well-a pretty basic thing for a bathroom. Took 2 days of complaining to finally get them to service them properly. So plan on bringing your own toilet paper and being grossed out by plugged toilets. Since we camp in a PopUp, we require usable bathrooms. And to save a few bucks, the hot water is almost non-existent. Lukewarm at best even after midnight. Kind of ridiculous considering the rates you pay.

first let me start with the positives. most sites are nice and large, the pull thous are long enough for the largest of rv's or, a simple travel trailer and 2 vehicles, the sites are all paved and have grills steel picnic tables to seat 10, also on a cement pad. awsome view of Lake Erie and very nice setting for sunsets. free shuttle to the parks entrance or a brisk walk will get you to the nearest gate at soak city, i recommend the bus to the main gate especially with early entry to cedar point. The pool was nice but, needed some attention to clear the cloudy water at 90$ per night i expected crystal clear water, there is also a hot tub but then again lots of kids in it.
now the bad points, being that cedar point has mostly seasonal students working the drive into the park was crazy, they had no idea how to route traffic to the hotel nor the campground so there you are towing your coach, in my case 50 feet total length, through the parks main parking lot, when they could send those like us straight through. check in was a task due to students not knowing how to check people in with out cell phones texting, and lack of knowledge of camp grounds.
so over all i will recommend to camp here just for easrly entry to the park then you get the no line waits on all major coasters.

Love staying so close to the park and getting to go in early. It's a less expensive alternative that gives you the comfort of home minutes from the coasters! The only downside are the bathrooms in the lighthouse section. I know there are full hook-ups, but it'd be nice to have more than 4 showers. Especially since they are right near the pool and the floor always seem to be wet. Make sure to bring in the groceries you'll need, the store is minimal. Otherwise, we love staying at Camper Village.

If you have an RV/camper, this is the place to stay when visiting the Point. First a suggestion, fork out the extra $$ and get a full hook up in the Lighthouse section. These sites are spacious and clean. The electric circular section is older and gets crowded. The Lighthouse section is also closer to the newer pool with a hot-tub.
Another suggestion is to get free-standing fire pit for those of us that love campfires. Ground fires are not permitted, but these are acceptable.
The location to both parks is excellent. Early entry and free parking, (including a parking area for after check-out when you want to spend that last day at the park) are added bonuses.

When we first arrived they did not have our reservation on file (despite already paying almost $400 for it and making it 4 weeks prior!) Luckily we had our confirmation number other information to verify we had indeed made the reservation and they had a site available in the area we had requested. We had requested a full hook-up pull through site. We have a 36 ft. 5th wheel. This particular area is very nice, roomy for slides, and very well maintained with plenty of privacy. They have trees between the sites as well as plenty of room. The campground itself if very clean and well maintained as well as the shower/restroom facilities (we did not use, but took a look at.)

One problem we found was the camp store had zero rv/camper supplies. We needed a few accessories for our sewer hook up and extra black tank chemicals. Yes, we should have checked these before our departure, but every camp store we have ever been to, especially full hook-up private campground have carried them. We figured a campground with over 300 RV sites would be no different. The employee had suggested we try the nearest Lowe's for these supplies. I'm from Indiana an no Lowe's in my area sells these things. Maybe it's different in Sandusky, but we didn't have the time to trek 20 minutes for these things.

One more issue was the grass mowing at 6:30 am. Maybe most of the guests are up and out by then except for us.

Other than those things, this is a great campground and for being right next to the park, it wasn't that loud, at least not for us. The campground is very lit up, so if you need darkness to sleep, make sure you can take care of that somehow or you won't sleep.

The campground has its benefits and downsides. First off, it is right next to Cedar Point - you can't get much closer. You can also get in 1 hour early AND buy discount tickets because it is a Cedar Fair Property. The bathrooms are always clean - which is a definite plus. We were located near the dump station in the electric only section and check out time is HORRIBLE. The smell is so bad you can't have the windows open on your camper or be anywhere near it. The spots are very close together, so you can hear if someone sneezes next to you. BUT. This is what you would expect with a campground close to such a huge amusement park. I would stay there again - but will ALWAYS request a spot AWAY from the dump station. Yuck.

Room Tip: Stay FAR away from the dump station!

Following the rest of the reviews found on here, I decided to ask for a site away from the Mean Streak roller coaster and close to the washrooms. The site that we ended up getting was nothing short of amazing! I posted a picture to convey how much grass space we had. The extra space helped considering we had a dog :) We were on a full hook-up site close to the registration office (not in the lighthouse area).

It was the first time I ever went 'camping' and I was worried about having to use the public showers. I was relieved to see that the showers were remarkably clean (staff cleaned them regularly) and very private.

The camp site was also located very close to one of the entrances to Cedar Point (approximately a five minute walk). Being so close to the park let us have lunches and dinners back at our camper...this saved us a lot of money!

For anyone wanting to camp in the 'traditional' sense, you may want to skip staying here. Roller blading, fire pits, biking and such are not allowed. If you are just looking to stay within close proximity to the park while at the same time receiving discounted tickets, stay at Camper's village :)
