Sign for Camp Snoopy.

Knott's Camp Snoopy was a seven-acre (28,000 m²) amusement park located in the center of the Mall of America (MOA), in Bloomington, Minnesota, USA. The park was themed around the Charles M. Schulz Peanuts comic strip characters. It was owned by the Knott's Family, who also owned the Knott's Berry Farm theme park, which also had a Camp Snoopy area.

Unlike the Camp Snoopy areas seen at the Cedar Fair parks, the MOA Camp Snoopy was never aggressively linked to the Peanuts franchise; the park had a very outdoors and woodsy feel with more subtle references to Peanuts. Much of the original theming in the Camp Snoopy fountain and all around the park had already been toned down by the time the park lost rights to the Peanuts characters.

In late 2005, the park would undergo changes, including the removal of the "Knott's" name, becoming simply Camp Snoopy.

On January 19, 2006, the MOA and Cedar Fair's contract for the park broke down and so the park had lost the Peanuts license, and was renamed The Park at MOA until a new license could be found. On March 15, 2008, the park became a Nickelodeon themed park, called Nickelodeon Universe.
