Saturday morning we reluctantly pulled our RV out of Lighthouse point, the screams, laughter, and coasters growing quieter as we drove onward. We spent the entire week at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Cedar Point is an amusement park that is located on a Lake Erie peninsula. It makes it feel as if the park is on it’s own private island. The park features 71 rides, 17 of which are roller coasters- it’s no wonder the park has been dubbed “America’s Roller Coast”.
We didn’t originally plan to stay at Lighthouse point but at the last minute changed our minds and decided to book it. We are so glad we did too! The campground was a bit expensive and was definitely something we splurged on (we normally don’t spend this much on camp sites) but in our opinion it was worth it.
Standard back in sites (that’s what we got) and standard pull through sites. These sites include: water, electric, sewer, a picnic table and charcoal grill. Most of the sites are nice and private and have some sort of trees on each side so you’re not looking directly at your neighbors RV.
Ultimate Patio site both back in and pull through. These sites of course include the full hookups plus a grill, a nice table and set of chairs and a fire pit.
Both the pool and hot tub could use a little updating. There is also a water play area for the kiddos. Tons of chairs and tables and there are towels that can be used in the pool area too.
Lake Erie beach access. Complimentary chairs and loungers.
If you arrive after check in time, there is still a friendly face to give you all the info you need to get checked in for the night. There is also a Convenience Store/Gift Shop in the same building although I’m not sure if that is open 24 hrs. or not.
Easy access to the beach and parasail/jet ski rentals at an additional cost.
Bathhouses for large families and laundry facilities to keep up with the dirty clothes after a long hot day in the park. We did not use any of these facilities during our stay but they are there if you need them!
Pier over looking Lake Erie. Has a few benches and is a good place to watch the sunset.
If you don’t own an RV or have family/friends coming to visit as well they do have cottages and cabins available too and there are Cedar Point owned hotels nearby as an option as well. The cottages overlook Sandusky Bay and the cabins are more inland.
As I mentioned before, we definitely splurged on this campground 😬 For our standard back in site we paid $850 for 7 days or roughly $121 per night 🤯 (For reference our stay was in July of 2020. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and left on a Saturday morning.)
So was it worth it? For us it’s a resounding
For us it was all about convenience and making the most of our time at the amusement park. To be honest, we were hardly at our RV and maybe used the pool/hot tub once during our entire stay. The sites were nice and level and super big rig friendly (I think our site was around 70 or 80 feet long by 12 feet wide). We had plenty of room to park our 40 ft. fifth wheel and our huge truck with room to spare. Our favorite part about staying there was quick access to the park. It’s a quick 10 minute walk or you can drive and park in the parking lot too (which we started doing as the week went on and we were getting tired). We were able to quickly leave and re-enter the park so we could go back to the RV and let the dogs out for a bit or just chill out and cool down in the AC for a half hour or so. Most of the other RV campgrounds in the area are at least a 15 to 20 minute drive from Cedar Point, if not more.
