We enjoyed hiking and kayaking around the area. It is a great recreational area. The north emd of the park is the best area to get away from the power boats and kayaking. .

The season may be over and half the camp is shut down but that didn't change fee structure. Restrooms and showers need updating. The dump station is poorly designed and not the expected configuration making it awkward if downright not doable. Never did find a hose to rinse anything with. The first site in the A lot appears to have... More

We came in to the Columbus area for a 4 day family get together after almost 5 months of traveling and we needed an RV site large enough for us to stretch out with our two large dogs. This park is a true gem, well cared for and clean. We paid for a premium site which gave us 50 amp... More

Hidden gem worth the 90 minute drive. Located this little place online. There is a large dog park and best of all a dog beach. No stones or pebbles, just smooth mud. The park is well kept and generally everyone picked up after themselves. If you are taking your dogs swimming, bring flip flops or water shoes for yourself so... More

I live near Alum Creek and camp and hike here frequently. They have recently added more hiking trails along the west side of the reservoir. I have noticed a lot more kayak rentals and paddleboarders recently. It is close enough to civilization, but you feel far away.

Alum Creek State Park is close to Columbus and Delaware so the campground can fill and the lake can get crowded with watercraft on a hot summer day. That is when it is a good time to visit the largest beach in the Ohio state park system. The marina has a small store and pizza place and there is a... More

We camp here a lot in the past few years. It is still nice place to camp but they do need to start paying attention to the people who clean the bathrooms ect. We all noted a decline in the bathroom cleanliness and over growth on more of the sites.

Alum Creek SP is a nice area that I've visited on and off for years. There is boating and camping activities which I admit I've never done, but seem to be the main activities at this park. Walking or jogging up along the reservoir is pleasant and seems to be what a lot of visitors enjoy. Just be aware it... More

Alum Creek State Park has a lot to offer. The reservoir is a couple of miles long. There are several boat ramps, a marina, boating, camping, beach, playgrounds, picnic areas and trails - both hiking and biking. Unfortunately many seem to take the "state-provided" and "free" for granted so you'll likely see their abuse in the form of trash or... More
