Does this campground generally fill up? I am looking do this ride the end of July and planning where to stay.

There is plenty of space. It does sometimes get busier, but there are additional areas slightly upriver where you could set up your tent if the hiker-biker area is too crowded.

I agree with Andy. There is generally a large enough area to accommodate the overnight campers at the Cedar Creek Park H/B campground. In the unlikely event that it were full there is a pay-to-stay campground with showers in West Newton just 3 to 4 miles away.

Note however there is a Family Funfest planned at the park for Sunday August 6. If your plans were to slip into this date, you may find things a little more congested in the park that weekend.

A shout-out to the South Yard Depot about 3 miles east of Cedar Creek Park camping.

Located on the trail, Jeff Seich offers coffee, breakfast sandwiches cooked to order, light lunches, ice cream sandwiches, and cold drinks. We originally thought we might go up the hill into Smithton for coffee after a night at Cedar Creek campground, but decided to press on. It was the right decision.

Nothing fancy, but a great egg and cheese sandwich with fresh eggs and homegrown tomatoes to go with our coffee.
