It’s an exciting time to join Knott’s Berry Farm with a jam-packed full lineup of Seasons of Fun plus all-new fun with the fully reimagined Camp Snoopy and the completed renovation of the Knott’s Hotel. Debuting this summer, Camp Snoopy will offer more to explore. Campers of all ages will be able to become full-fledged Beagle Scouts as they explore new rides, including a family coaster, along with new character experiences, entertainment, a dining hall, a camp store, plus more guest amenities.
