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.

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.

A great man made lake that has beautiful shore lines and coves for the camera minded person. Close to other attractions so it make for a perfect vacation and not much $$$ spent. Fun to see in the fall, and winter too !

We visited several areas in the park and by far the favorite was the Alum Creek Dog Park. It is a very large area. There is an area for play which is divided for large and small dogs. Then there is another large area for swimming-it too is divided into two sections for small and large dogs. Our dog loves... More

This is a must see and do if you are ever in the Delaware Ohio area. Great scenery, quiet and lots of fishing and hiking or taking Fido for a jog.

Worth every penny. It is 15 USD per car and the drive was for around 40 minutes. The lights were amazing. We visited with family. It was all fun! Decorated with more than 200K lights. Plus, we visited the resort across the street for a pic with Santa and free hot chocolate and free cookies. The physical address of the... More

This is a really beautiful park just north of Columbus. From the broad grassy areas beneath the dam, to the beach, to the marina and the campground this Central Ohio recreation area offers plenty. The horse camp is up on Howard Road and Hogback Preserve is worth the trip most seasons. With 3,500 acres there are a number of boat... More

I like it. I work the Brown Jug in September, and this is a good place to stay at an affordable price. It isn't what I would call a forest type park, with only a few small bushes and skinny trees separating each camp site, but it's nice. The trails are more like small walk ways, and it's very peaceful.... More
