We stayed in the 30 amp older section of the park and sadly it was one of the worst camping experiences we have had in a long time. The campground is made up of sites in concentric circles with the bathhouse in the center. Way too many sites for a bathhouse consisting of 5 showers, etc. especially considering sites did not have full hookups. Our campsite itself was entirely gravel with no grass whatsoever, which served as a blessing later. Standing on the steps of my camper I could reach out and touch the slide-out of the pop up next to us. The troubles began when storms rolled through the area on day 2 of our 4 day stay putting most of the sites literally under water. At no time did I see anyone from Cedar Point drive through to check on the condition of the sites or offer any assistance pumping water, etc. The campground's supposed main selling point is its convenience to Cedar Point and "early hours" access. We found the early hours to be a joke since only one or two coasters were operational during that time - and they were not the major attractions. Lastly, during the course of our stay the overwhelming number of major rides were intermittently closed despite the weather being warm and sunny. Overall, I would suggest to anyone that they avoid this place and if you desire visiting Cedar Point stay at one of the other nearby campgrounds since the cost of staying at Camper Village way outweighs the supposed convenience.

OK for an overnight stop, about a mile off the turnpike. On the positive side, the place was packed with primarily seasonals and everyone seemed polite and respectful of quiet hours, etc. The lady checking us in was very helpful and the pull-through was convenient for our early morning departure the next day since we did not wish to unhook for the night. On the downside, I thought $38 for an overnight stay was high and sadly the bathhouses have seen better days.

As previously mentioned, the cost of the campsite is expensive. However,you can't beat its convenience for visiting the Washington, DC area. The people at the counter were very knowledgeable of the area and willing to answer any questions we had. I thought the campsite cost was partially offset by the reasonable prices of their firewood, camp store and cafeteria items which I found more reasonable than most (I suggest one of their double scoop ice cream sundaes!). The park is fairly large so depending on where you are situated it can be a hike to the clubhouse, camp store or both. Both pools were nice and supervised by lifeguards. Wi-Fi worked excellent but our cable TV reception was not great. On the negative side, our campsite was not level and you are on top of your neighbor. But we were there for the convenience of getting to DC and Cherry Hill fit the bill. Lastly, for families taking the train I strongly recommend driving the 10 minutes to the station instead of the bus which stops at the park. For a family of four it's almost $28.00 as opposed to $4.25. I would also recommend utilizing one of the local tour operators who provide a "hop on, hop off" service for 1-2 days. In the summer heat, walking from place to place can be brutal.

Great spot for overnight stop. The place is huge and there were only a few others staying here midweek. Bathrooms were very dated, but clean. My wife was a little more sensitive to their age than I, which I believe to be a typical reaction. Rate included 30 amp service, W/E, cable TV. I think full hookup was 3 dollars more. There is a Subway/gas station within walking distance as well as a steak/seafood restaurant if you prefer to not unhook overnight. Unsure of Wifi reception as we did not use it.

Great overnight stop on your way to/from the Black Hills. All sites are pull-thru and someone will guide you to your spot. Several fast food and local establishments within walking distance so you don't have to unhook if you choose not to do so. Amazing how quickly the place fills up in in the evening during the middle of the week. I suspect that is due to the park and owner's reputation. It was obvious the bathrooms were a source of pride, very clean and cared for. Wifi worked well.

Good basecamp for visiting Mitchell. You basically have two choices: closer to the Corn Palace or closer to the interstate. We chose the latter. All sites are pull-thru, but a bit narrow. Wifi was good and having cable TV to check the weather was appreciated. No campfires.

We stayed here for a week visiting the Black Hills. Due to the lateness of our reservation over the July 4th holiday, our site was not the best. However, all other aspects of our stay were positive. The ladies in the office were extremely nice and offered great tips about our stay. Wifi worked excellent, which was a bonus given that we got zero TV reception and our phone service was spotty at best. Bathrooms were spotless and were checked several time per day. Rated noted above is a discount for a 7 day stay. Lastly, my kids had a blast at the water side, and it is well worth the minimal cost for the hours of enjoyment it brought.
