Camp Cedar

Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, is delaying the opening of Camp Cedar, its $27 million “luxury” campground and resort under construction less than a mile from the amusement park’s front gates, according to FOX 19.

Now, the site with room for RV travelers, park guests and other vacationers will open June 23, Kings Island said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, a combination of unfavorable weather, labor and material shortages led to the delayed opening,” said Chad Showalter, Kings Island’s spokesman, in a prepared statement.

Park employees are working to help people who already booked stays reschedule or find another local campground that can accommodate their dates, he said.

The resort and campsite will hold 73 cottages and 164 full-service RV spaces.

Another 100 cottages are planned.

There also will be recreational and adult-exclusive pools, ponds, walking trails, dining options, bathhouses, a laundry facility, firepits, grills and picnic tables.
