Knott's Berry Farm: Camp Snoopy for Kids
May 15, 2024

UPDATED MAY 2024. Did you know that Knott's Berry Farm is America's very first amusement park? It was created to entertain customers while they waited in line to purchase Mrs. Knott's famous baked goods and popular chicken dinner. The entertainment became every bit as popular as the food and thus, a theme park was born.

Fifteen years later, another theme park opened just a few miles away to what is now known as the Disneyland Resort. Along with Disneyland, the Knott Family Park continued to innovate and grow, including a place just for kids!

Camp Snoopy Play and Dine

One of the best things about Camp Snoopy is the landscaping and atmosphere. Even on a hot day, you’ll find so much natural shade. The entire area is dotted with tall, mature pine trees and accented with bright flowers, a bubbling stream and even a giant waterfall. There is a bridge that kids can use to walk over the river and into a cave under the waterfall.

For places to eat at Camp Snoopy you’ll find Cave Inn Snacks with soft pretzels, churros, soft-serve ice cream, and ICEEs. It’s a great place to refuel as a quick stop for all campers.

Grizzly Creek Lodge serves hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, chicken tenders, fresh salads, and Snoopy's Kids Meals. Dine inside or on the patio by Grizzly Creek Falls.

There is also a picnic area in the center of Camp Snoopy with picnic tables and an area with play tree logs, mushrooms, and rocks for tiny visitors to crawl through and play on. All your little ones will love getting the wiggles out in the picnic park area.

In addition to great food, rides and play space you might even meet Snoopy! He meets guests throughout the day for hugs and pictures with all of the kids.

And don’t forget Camp Snoopy Theatre for live performances on select dates at Knott’s Berry Farm. Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, their friend JT, and the world’s most popular beagle, Snoopy bring fun and music to Camp Snoopy!
