Just speculating here, but you are probably correct.

That's all we can do without access to demand and pricing data.  :)

I will say that I see and know of plenty of people with RVs and campers, but few people ever even talk about tent camping.  Anecdotal, yes, so take it for what it's worth.

Year-Round Luxury Outdoor Resort Will Welcome Park Guests, Families and RV Travelers   Construction of the $27 million Kings Island Camp Cedar is underway, and the new luxury outdoor resort

It takes a lot of bulldozing and grading to build something like this, the original KI campground was pretty light on trees at first too, and for that matter so was the developed part of the park itse

Cedar Fair will own it within 5 years. Calling it now.

It was pretty well grown in, prior to them bulldozing all of it.  They installed a second entrance/exit off of Columbia road in the past few weeks as well.

I would love to have one of those spots right next to the McDonald's Truck Parking Lot.  I've heard that is a common overnight stay area for some local lot lizards.

It's a little deceiving, since the drone footage is from leaf-off conditions.  Looks like the majority of clearing took place on the south portions of the lot and the wooded area towards the back was partially kept.  The growth on the south site was probably all noxius, honeysuckle, cedars and briars (similar to any highway right of way).  image.png

Kings Island said reservations would open up in January 2021 for Camp Cedar which has now come and gone. Also, Kings Island has provided no updates at all for Camp Cedar since the project was first announced. I wonder why there has been such silence regarding the project, and I wonder when reservations will actually be available. I hope there haven’t been any setbacks in the construction and opening of the campground.

Yikes guess they don't want average camping folks. 109$ a night for a parking slab. Might do it once this summer just to try it and the convenience but too rich to do more than that.  Btw bookings now open June 14-sept

Cedar Point charges around that much

For the cottages, same summer night I checked, Cedar Point charges about twice as much..  A bit under $400 for 2 nights at KICC, vs. $800.80 for 2 nights at CP's Lighthouse Point (cheapest unit at each). *

Don't forget the $9.99/night resort fee!

Also, passholders should not forget to use Promotional code PASS for 10% off with a Kings Island Season Pass or a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass!

* Lighthouse Point's smallest unit sleeps 6, vs. Camp Cedar's only sleeps 4.  Hard to get a good comparison since Camp Cedar then jumps to 8.  As always, be sure to comparison shop the different lodging options you're interested in at the occupancy level your party requires.

@jsus I was referring to the actual campsites for rvs being close to $109

I got that but wanted to share another price comparison between the two resorts. :)

To your point, for a random Thursday in July, CP LHP is $124.00 with no resort fee, while KI CC is $118.99 including $9.99 resort fee.

and  i don't camp at Cedar Point for that reason. Last time i went to CP we camped at a place iirc like 20 mins around from the bridgeway to cp. but that was 20 years ago and anything on site is too rich for me.   Just like i probably never will at KI. Also Disney Camprground is only 120 cheap season 170 prime _Most expensive camping slab i've been to but that price is expected its disney not a regular amusement park.  i don't think this resort even compares to cost as much as they want.  I can camp at an amazing KOA near dollywood for less than 109 a night and it has just as nice amenities.  I bet they find out once the Newness wears off they wont find that price sustainable to fill it. then the deals will emerge.  they should of had a low rent pad section for those of us just wishing to camp instead of drive back and forth each day- its too rich for me to negate a 30/45 min drive instead.   But since camper sales are through the roof right now maybe theres more people with disposable income than i know.

Seems like with the season pass discount, the rates are far more reasonable.

Also, the first day you can book is 6/14/21. I wonder if it opens then or if it is sold out until that date.

Camp Cedar is not opening until June per the website.   Still much to do in the next two months from what I heard, but the warmer dry weather has definitely allowed faster progress.
