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

There were 4 of us, 2 in a tent and 2 in a pop up. We chose a site on Road E which was nice since we had no one behind us and no one in front of us. There seem to be no restrictions about the number of campers per site, and the people next to us had 4... More

Boating at Marina for years. Great little lake to tube, fish and just hang out for the day. Great for families with kids. But, ramps are very congested if you are launching your boat. Main ramp is STILL under reconstruction! Quick little restaurant for a bite at marina. Food is good.You can also rent jet skis, pontoons etc. Beach is... More

We stayed in the furnished cedar cabin that had a small bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room with two built in bunk beds. Good layout, air conditioning, clean and nice lot. However, the Queen bed and bunks had mattresses that were brick hard; the futon in living area was as comfortable as a futon! Even when we used sleeping bags... More

"the beach area" -- We did not have a reservation so we showed up at 7:30 to claim tables and a grill. There was so much trash. I understand it was early but WOW! We made do, shifted some tables around, popped up our canopies, and made do. But the trash was unbearable. I picked some up with gloves. I... More

We came from Pennsylvania for a weekend trip that included a baby shower at the Park. We arrived nice and early as we had heard it gets crowded and grills and tables are at a minimum (which is very true)... The area by the beach and the main shower house was covered in trash and filth as if it wasn't... More

We recently camped at the campground for Alum Creek. The "premium" sites were nice sized. They were advertised as "Lake View" We did not really have a view of the lake from our site due to trees, but I guess that is expected at a park though. Maybe a better description would be lake access. We were right near the... More

My family met at Alum Creek State Park for two days in a row. We first met at the beach which I was beautiful and large and doesn't look man made. Their concession food was awesome, and the water appeared to be clean and the sea gulls wasn't aggressive ,but the bathrooms were filthy and smelled pretty bad and there... More
