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

Nice little waterway for boating. We could take the same size boats there we take to Deer Creek. Also took 2 wave runners. Size seemed fine. Watched a guy with the with a water jet pack. That was fun. Made me want to have one. Just overcrowded.

My family and I camped at the camp ground on July Fourth Weekend. What appeared to be a lovely state park facility, turned out to be very poorly run and none of the "rules" were enforced. The facilities- restrooms and showers-were deplorable. My family has camped for many years all over the country and this ranks amongst the worst facilities... More

We chose this state park for my kids' first camping trip. The sites were adequately sized and had electric hookup. The campground is so spread out that it's difficult to get to some of the things in the campground such as the campers' beach and the amphitheater. Our site was so far away we had to use the car. The... More

We spent 2 nights in the campground (motor home) while visiting relatives in Columbus. Sites were paved and adequately sized with electric only. The biggest downside for extended camping would be lack of water hookups. Bathrooms basic, but clean. Aside from proximity to,Coumbus, recreational opportunities seemed pretty limited.
