Prior to 2020, Warren County averaged over 12 million tourism-related visitors each year, many of whom came from Midwestern markets outside of a 150-mile radius. As the county’s number one industry, tourism generated visitor spending of over $ 1.2 billion in 2019 and supported nearly 13,000 jobs in the region. The new luxury outdoor recreation complex is slated to welcome visitors to Kings Island, the Western & Southern Open, WCCVB’s Warren County Sports Park and other popular Southwest Ohio destinations.
Kings Island Camp Cedar is owned by Small Brothers, LLC and Terra Firma Associates. Through a unique partnership and licensing agreement, Kings Island Camp Cedar will be managed by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, owner of Kings Island Amusement Park.
