Been awhile since I have been to Alum Creek State Park and the beach is still nice. Groomed, with lots of picnic areas, a soccer field, restrooms. No lifeguards like before though, Sunday in June.

Attached to the Alum Creek State Park is the Alum Creek Yacht Club. It is a very nicely run club with many very nice sailboats operated by nice people. Great place to be on a warm autumn afternoon when the "wind is right"
