Inside Kings Island’s New Luxury Outdoor Resort ‘Camp Cedar’


Cincinnati's Kings Island amusement park has expanded its entertainment offerings with a new endeavor.

The park welcomed its first guests to its $27 million luxury outdoor resort and camping destination called Camp Cedar this past weekend.

The camp is located on 50 acres of land less than 1 mile from Kings Island. The acreage has been transformed into a unique lodging space boasting 73 chic cottages (with 100 additional cottages planned) and 184 full-service RV spaces.

The resort features two separate pools — a family-friendly activity pool and an adults-only pool — both offering poolside service as well as cabanas. They also offer camping essentials like firepits, grills, picnic tables, laundry facilities and bathhouses.

Additionally, Camp Cedar features several dining and entertainment options including: The Hornbeam Lodge welcome center and great room with the Ironwood Grill & Tap, an indoor and outdoor restaurant/bar with a camp/souvenir shop; and a food-truck style outdoor cantina called Belize Street featuring American, Mexican and Italian fare; and coffee and gelato shop The Dry Bean.
