I had no idea you could rent boats and other water sport equipment. We've gone several times now and have had a blast. The staff are very friendly and helpful with newbies. There's a ton of parking and the beaches are clean. The restrooms were very clean as well. Love this place!!!!

It was a wonderful sight at the marina ,full of boats. Had to climb many steps to see the dam, but fully worth the trouble as the view was fantastic from the top, well worth a visit.

When I first moved here from the east coast and people said they were going to the lake to swim, i was a little worried. Plenty of parking, Free access, clean sand. Nice family environment. People bring grills and cook out in the grass also. A few miles away, near the marina is a dog park. Nice, large area for... More

From start to finish we had a great time here. The marinas are readily accessible, the camping parcels are adequate, the woods are wonderful and the shower/bathing facilities were surprisingly good (a real hot shower in the morning goes a long way for me). The kid at the front office was really helpful even though he was swamped. This is... More

Alum Creek State Park is huge! It's a great place to enjoy all kinds of water sports. The boat ramps are easily accessible and the bathrooms are nice and clean. There are tons of great camp sites and the campgrounds are nice and quiet. Highly recommend!

We started our reservations on a Wednesday. There were not many campers there. We were in a spot were there were few people. During the night, someone tried to come into our camper and when they could not, dumped out a snapping turtle and stepped on it. We were not given a complete refund and are still working on it....

no matter how hard we tried we could NOT keep the raccoons from overtaking our camp site at night. this was very bothersome and quite scary to be honest as i know very little about the animal and have heard scary stories of them carrying several diseases. my brother in law said they left at 1:00 am for the same...

Chose this location so that friends & family visiting us there from Columbus wouldn't have far to travel. There are many pet friendly sites here and a decent dog park with off-leash access to the resevoir on another side of the park. The site we chose was called premium because it was "next to" the lake. But in fact we... More

I took my granddaughter fishing here May 27th and had a great time. The night-crawlers were a sure bet. We caught 3 fish and shopped the marina. Everyone was so nice. Can't wait to camp here in August!

The MTB trails are located off Africa road. They are the only single track trails I can find in Delaware/Dublin. There are lots of little bridges to cross and the trails does not have the best flow, but they are well maintained. There is a short beginner, a long intermediate, and also an advanced trail.
