News from Winter Chill Out 2021

We've actually been there during storms when a couple of pop ups were pretty severely damaged.

Campers had to shelter in the bathrooms.


Glad you got that one RideMan! :)

No surprise on the campground expansion. Compared to multi-family housing or hotels in the case of CP, campgrounds are relatively cheap to build, require very little maintenance and the staffing is a tiny portion compared to a permanent building. The downside is a limited market, but as others have pointed out there's been an RV boom (my parents bought one too) and the campers don't just get scraped after a few years, so the increased inventory is around to stay.

I spend most of my summer at CP and I don’t think these monster storms roll through as often as you think. Do they happen, sure, but not enough to create a policy of eliminating an entire season of having tents.

They did the years that I worked there.....

Just in the last year the number of people in my social circle with campers and RVs more than doubled. Lots of traveling done between remote schooling and unemployment.

And thats great if you want to buy a camper..

Most newbiew to the rv world have a ton of plans to travel.. then after a cple years they sell it.

In a couple years I expect the used rv market to be flooded with campers with low mileage for sale..

It's been a snowball effect. The first few got campers a few years ago and the group just keeps getting bigger. Most of the recent purchases are people who hang with the previous camper owners and much of the traveling has started to be groups of campers not just individual families. Most of them were pretty outdoorsy to begin with and one of them turned their van into a makeshift camper for several trips before they actually put out the money to buy one. I think as long as the core group gets their employment straightened out they will be long haul campers they were already traveling. A few of the others maybe not so much. I like the idea of it but I know I would never travel enough to make it worth it.

They are still taking orders for the Legacy Walk Bricks

So I came home from work around 4:00, and my daughters were jumping up and down; "Daddy! Cedar Point is on the news! They're building a new roller coaster for 2022!"

Having no idea what they were talking about (and being disappointed in myself that I didn't) I just had to tune in at 5:00 to see what Channel 3 (CLE) was talking about.
