Kings Island Camp Cedar to open spring 2021
Construction of the $27 million Kings Island Camp Cedar is underway, and the new luxury outdoor resort is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021. The resort will feature modern lodging that will welcome Kings Island guests, families, vacationers and recreational vehicle (RV) travelers.
Kings Island Camp Cedar is owned by Small Brothers and Terra Firma Associates. Through a partnership and licensing agreement, Kings Island Camp Cedar will be managed by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, owner of the Kings Island amusement park. Cleveland Construction serves as the general contractor, McHarris Architects as the project architect and The Kleingers Group as the project’s civil engineer.
“It’s natural for us to partner with Cedar Fair, the owners of Kings Island,” said Jon Small, Chairman and CEO of Small Brothers. “As a top destination in the area, their ability to entertain and provide a place to create lasting memories is exactly the type of experience we want our visitors to have at Kings Island Camp Cedar.”
The new luxury outdoor resort is located on more than 50 acres of land less than a mile from Kings Island’s front gates. Once complete, it will complement Warren County’s exciting tourism attractions including Kings Island, the Western & Southern Open, Warren County Sports Park and other popular southwest Ohio destinations.
“We are excited to offer our guests a unique lodging experience and a contemporary outdoor retreat so close to Kings Island,” said Mike Koontz, Vice President and General manager of Kings Island. “The addition of Kings Island Camp Cedar luxury outdoor resort will make a visit to our park even more memorable.”
The hybrid resort and camping destination will have outdoor entertainment including recreational and adult exclusive pools, ponds, walking trail and unique dining options. Camping must-haves will include bathhouses, laundry facility, firepits, grills and picnic tables.
Attractions at the Grand Lodge will include a signature indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar; shopping and exercise facilities; an outdoor cantina for casual outdoor dining; a family activity pool with water play features and a separate adult-exclusive pool, and Peanuts character appearances such as Character Breakfasts and Smores with Snoopy.
