“We are disappointed that the opening of Camp Cedar, a new luxury outdoor resort, is being further delayed,” said Erin Ruppenthal, Camp Cedar spokeswoman. “It has been a very challenging year, and a combination of unfavorable weather, labor and material shortages, necessitates further postponement of welcoming guests... We look forward to welcoming guests and delivering a first-class, family-friendly experience in the very near future.”

This was the second opening date for the new campground that was initially to open on June 14, but was delayed due to the same circumstances, according to park officials

The campground’s guest services team is in the process of contacting those with an affected reservation and providing them with a full refund. Anyone with questions about their affected reservation can contact Camp Cedar by e-mail at, online, or by phone at 513-701-9635. The reservations office is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
