I'll admit up front... i have not camped at Alum Creek State Park, but have done most everything else. The biggest draw is that if you live in Columbus its the closest you can get to nature without vacationing. If you're passing through or need a great place to camp, walk, hike, or lay on a beach...you can be rest... More

We camped last weekend and the experience had it's good points and not so good points. Good - the campsite was large and nestled in the trees. The electric worked really well. Bad - The quiet hours were not enforced. We had a group of campsites around us that were up making lots of noise til well past midnight. Also... More

Our family discovered the Alum Creek Marina website, and thought it would be fun to rent a pontoon boat over the Fourth of July weekend. Their website stated you could rent a 22ft Pontoon boat for 6 hours for $260. However when I called the Marina they indicated it was actually $330, and their website has been outdated for over...

Enjoyed spending time with family exploring the park and nature. Good fishing access. Scenic views. Typical state park amenities. Always a good time.

This is a pretty area and the dog park and facilities are very nice and clean. But, had to give it overall just an average rating as we could not find a map of the trails either posted or in print near the dog park entrance. The park office was closed and there were no maps available there either.

If you are into boating, fishing, camping, swimming, or just picnicking on a holiday afternoon, this is the place for you. Several campgrounds available (park owned and independent), boat rentals, bait stores, nature areas, a nice beach and many picnic areas with shelters are available. Reservoir is very large and you can boat, water ski, jet ski, fish or just... More

This will be the 3rd year we have kept our pontoon boat @ Alum Creek Marina. We have been various other places in Ohio and Alum Creek is by far the best of them all! We absolutely LOVE it there - spend the entire weekend on the lake with most of our family members. The docks are in need of... More

My wife and I live about 6 miles from this camp ground so we take our camper there a lot during the spring summer and fall and enjoy the park. Holiday weekends can be busy but during the week is great at least for us. We enjoy sites down by the water and the "B" road and usually stay over... More
