Added late, but when adding another recent stay, though better late than never.
Stayed for 5 days/4 nights in August 2007 at one of the cabin/ cottage circles they have within the Camper Village ar Cedar Point.
Choosing this location was to ensure we had easy access to the park (which providesd early admission as well and was a 3 miniute walk to the park gate), cut down on the driving required during our stay in the area, and the benefits the Village offered.
We booked a cabin (that was within the circle directly behind Mean Streak). Imediately we were concerned about noise during the evening - not an issue. The park closes at a reasonable hour and we were always in the park prior to opening to the public, so we were never aware or bothered by the noise of the ride (and at night, being lit up it is a beautiful sight). The cabin had a bathroom with shower, kitchenette (with small fridage, microwave and sink), 1 bedroom with its own tv, a sitting area with another tv, and sleeping loft (that our youngest enjoyed to her self). Outside is a picnic table and small bbq (we used), and on the property, an outdoor pool, hot tub, games room, and laundry facilities (all used as well). As well a small store exists on site for any missing supplies (though pricey - shop offsite like we did).
We toured a few of the cottages that are on the outside of the property right on the lake, with each having a deck. Their sitting area is smaller (as you loose the space the door opening onto the deck uses) but think having a deck and the view a good compromise if space (i.e. the number in you party) not an issue.
There were 4 of us - two in the bedroom, the youngest having the loft, and oldest (teenager) having the sitting area with tv (where each of the sofa's (futons) fold out into beds). With as small a space as it was, we never felt cramp, each had our own space in the evening, and made best use of the cabin. We did a shop locally and had all our breakfasts and two dinners and several lunches there and found the cabin an ideal space to relax (using the pool as well) during the evenings.
We did a local shop to stock up on snacks / breakfast supplies and add to the basic kitchen supplies the cabin provided (i.e. steak knives for one nights BBQ) saving ourselves a bundle on meals through use of the kichenette.
This being our first visit to what is technically an RV park, we knew not what to expect, but its location (what we were there for...the park), it amenities, and reasonable cost, had us glad we made the choice of a cabin onsite.
As we were looking at the other onsite hotels as alternatives with Castaway Bay being our fallback - note it is technically not on the property but a 5 min drive from and not a walk from - and walking through the other hotels, if looking for reasonable "family" accomodation close to the park, don't think you'd go wrong choosing a cabin or cottage in the Village.
