This is a very family friendly campground. We were there on the Labor Day weekend and the place was full. There were a lot of fun activities going on besides the usual things to do like swimming, playground, jumping pillow, mini golf, and game room. They offer an extensive breakfast on the weekends which is reasonably priced. All the staff were friendly. We stayed in the pull through full hook up section right behind the office area. It was very shaded which is nice. The site was a little cramped but we managed. We did need an extension cord for the electric as the power and water are at the front of the site and sewer was at the back. The price is a little high compared to other similar campgrounds. The $60 rate is for 2 people. Each additional person over 2 years old adds $5 a day to the rate. If you are a KOA rewards member, you save 10%. We will probably return as it is convenient for us coming from the east to visit the Columbus area.

We had a very enjoyable time here. Many positives about this park. The pools, game room, store, playgrounds, and park shuttle are great. The employees were friendly. The trains did not bother us. Yes, they do pass frequently but we got used to them. We stayed along the stream in a full hook up. In my opinion, the pull through area is very cramped. There are other full hookups along the stream and they have recently added sewer hookups to some of the hilltop sites.

This is our second trip in October. We were staying here mainly to go to Idlewild Park. The kids love the jumping pillow and playground area. You will probably need blocks to level. The park is clean and quiet. It is located close to the interstate and there are restaurants and shopping a few exits away on the interstate. Our friends stayed in a green lodge cabin which was very nice. I did not have a problem with the office staff. They were friendly to us. Maybe they were different people working. They had a lot of activities planned this Saturday for their Halloween weekend. A good park for a family.

We stayed at the park for a mini vacation to the Columbus area. There is a huge shopping area within 15 minutes of the park. It took about 30 minutes to get to COSI and about 20 minutes to the mall. The campground also has nice amenities such as a good size pool, playground, game room, store, laundry, and weekend activities. As others had stated, it took some work to get level at our site. It states on the website that cable TV is only available for long term stays. One section of the park has mostly long term campers but they are nicely maintained. We would recommend this as the place to stay when visiting Columbus.

This was our second stay here and we love it. We stayed in a full hook up back in site. This year we stayed 4 nights and purchased 3 day ride and slide tickets which are only $83 for resort guests. This is a great deal off of the gate prices. The bathroom and laundry facilities are excellent. You can walk to Soak City, the beach and Cedar Point. You get in a hour early to ride select rides. They have free shuttle buses to take you around if you want to go to the marina or front gate. The pool area is nice. If you want Wi-Fi, you'll have to go to the hotels. They have lots of channels on the cable. The sites are level and the hook ups conveniently located. They have a camp store which is convenient for ice and milk. One tip when you go to the park, at all the places that sell fountain Pepsi you can get free cups of cold water. If you are going to Cedar Point with an RV stay here for all the perks of the resort and the great ticket prices.

We just got back from a great Cedar Point trip. I haven't had a bad trip here. This was our first trip with the camper. We stayed at a full hook up back in site. The best deal for staying on park property is a package with tickets and coupons for stuff to do. We had enough room for our awning. A user had stated that could be a problem. Another review said there was no camp store but there is a really nice camp store in the building where you check in. It is fairly well stocked with ice, food, drinks, souvenirs, etc. It's probably cheaper to bring your own but if you run out of milk and don't feel like driving out to get some, I think an extra dollar isn't too outrageous. If you are staying at this property, you're going there to go to Cedar Point and Soak City. You're not going there to camp out in the wilderness. But it is a nice place to take a break from the hot sun. I think it is worth the extra money for the time saved by staying on property. The noise from the coasters didn't really bother us. Our two little kids took their afternoon naps. We were further away from the Mean Streak but could here the Magnum going up the hill. The place is clean and the bathhouse was clean. Somebody had clogged up the sinks and the cleaning crew was working on that the morning we left. I don't know why people or kids have to be so inconsiderate by messing up the bathhouse. We plan on staying here again. If you are going to Cedar Point, I would say stay here to enjoy all the park has to offer.

We camped here and had a great time. On the weekend, they have activities planned for the kids. They have a decently stocked store with Slush Puppies (my daughter's favorite part!) The jumping pillow, playground, and pool are all a hit with the kids. They have a lake for boating and fishing. The RV sites are good. The people are nice. They deliver ice and firewood to you. You don't really get a good deal of firewood for what you pay. But there are a bunch of regulations about firewood because of some bug so you are not supposed to bring your own. So you're stuck paying $6 for about 4-5 pieces of wood if you want some. Overall, a good experience for our family.

We really enjoyed our stay here in June and wanted to go again this month but we waited until the last minute to check for a spot. You should definitely call ahead for a reservation. What we liked: lots of cable TV channels, pool and water slides, tree house, clean bathrooms, playground, nice people, newspaper delivered each morning, lake to fish in. Unlike other campgrounds, when you purchase firewood you get a big load for you money. The campground owner goes around and visits with the campers to see how everyone is doing. One thing we would change is they have a playground that you can't get to when the pool is closed. The pool doesn't open until 11 am and we have little kids who need something to do. We will definitely go back.

We really enjoyed camping here. The sites are level but up on a hill. Be ready to walk uphill to get back to your camper. They had a few activities for the kids on Memorial Day Weekend. The playground is nice. They have mini golf and paddle boats to rent. If you don't mind swimming in a lake, they have slides and a water trampoline for swimmers. I'm just not big on lake swimming. They have a decent concession stand. They don't have much in the store for supplies but Wal-Mart is nearby. The campground road to get over to the RV sites from the check in area is kind of narrow so just be prepared for that. A fun place to camp overall and close to the Amish Country.
