MASON, Ohio — At long last, the luxury campground and resort Camp Cedar — adjacent to Kings Island — opened to guests Thursday.
The resort announced its opening day in a Facebook post Thursday morning:
The so-called "glampground" — a portmonteau for "glamour camping" — hit multiple snags headed toward its opening, originally scheduled for early June, citing a combination of unfavorable construction weather, and labor and material shortages.
The delays left hundreds of booked guests disappointed, especially those who had booked a spot for the original opening weekend on Father's Day.
Construction delays also meant the campground couldn't open for the July 4th weekend.
Camp Cedar hosts 73 cabins on the 50-acre site. Most of the cabins rent for $250 a night and sleep up to eight people.
