Beautiful, clean park. Great lake for boating and spacious campsites with nice facilities at the campground.

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

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
