Cedar Point to replace Camper's Village campground with cabins

The former campground is giving way to 52 deluxe cabins. The more modern
campground, which will remain, is at the right of the rendering.
Two or three times the last several years we've camped at Cedar Point. The Sandusky, Ohio amusement park - known worldwide for its roller coasters - has two RV campgrounds: Camper's Village, an older one that's less expensive than the more recent one, Lighthouse Point, with modern facilities.

We have always stayed at Camper's Village, which was a series of concentric circles surrounding a much-used bathhouse. Here's my blog post from one of the first times we camped at Cedar Point. The video above is from that post. Take a good look at that video, because apparently that's the campground that's going away.

Cedar Point announced earlier this month that it will be adding 52 new deluxe cabins to its Lighthouse Point resort. These new cabins can accommodate up to 10 people and will feature two full bathrooms, four flat panel televisions, a dorm-size refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, outdoor charcoal grill and picnic table. In addition, all of the cottages, cabins and full hook-up campsites in Lighthouse Point will now offer free wireless internet access. A new registration building will help speed up the check-in process and get guests to their cabins and RV sites quicker than ever before.

Reservations for the new cabins can be made immediately and room nights will be available beginning May 23.

Lighthouse Point is conveniently located along the west bank of the Cedar Point Peninsula and consists of 64 cozy cottages, 40 quaint cabins and 97 luxury RV campsites in addition to the 52 new cabins. Originally opened in 2001, Lighthouse Point nearly doubled in size with a major addition in 2004.  The centerpiece of Lighthouse Point is the historic Cedar Point Lighthouse (circa 1862), which is the oldest existing structure on the Cedar Point Peninsula.

Guests who stay at any Cedar Point Resorts property get the best perks, like $39 one-day admission tickets (a savings of more than $20 off the gate price) and Early Entry – a chance to experience some of the best rides and coasters on the planet a full one hour before the park opens to the general public.

Also, back by popular demand is Cedar Point’s Easy Pay plan which allows overnight visitors to lock-in low pre-season rates while conveniently managing the cost of their stay in four easy installments with no payment due at booking! Packages can be purchased on Cedar Point’s website or by calling 419-627-2106.

Cedar Point opens for the 2014 season on Saturday, May 10. For a complete operating schedule, visit cedarpoint.com.
