Alton RV Park

Galloway, Ohio

Date of Stay:

This is what I refer to as a "glorified parking lot." A place to park your camper with full hook-ups, but that's all. You stay here when you plan to do other things in the Columbus area. Fire rings are not allowed on the sites and our site was too narrow to even open the awning. That was OK since we were only there for one night. The owner was friendly but very particular. I was very happy that she was able to accommodate our late departure, but at a cost per hour. Also, if you have more than 2 people, there is an additional cost for each one. It ended up being way more expensive than it was worth for a one night stay with no amenities. It's fine if you are just two people planning to spend most of your time away from the campground.

Overall, the campground was nice and well-maintained. The full-hookup sites are actually just parallel parked along the driveway to the bathhouse and don't appear to be actual campsites at all. They did not have any of these sites available when we made the reservation so we were glad to have a water/electric site with some shade and privacy. Unless you absolute need a sewer hookup, don't bother - go for the water/electric hook up only instead. The location is only a few minutes from the Rivermen/Class VI activities and close to town/shopping. Each site has a covered trash can which was emptied each day. There are cabins on the property as well as horses, but we did not encounter any disturbances such as loud or obnoxious campers. The manager was very accommodating when we wanted a different, more level site and made sure we had a picnic table brought to us since our new site did not have one. The bathhouse was clean and well-maintained, except for the last two days when the electricity apparently went out in the bathhouse and was not restored. There was also no waste basket so campers piled used hand towels up on the sink. There were corn hole boards and bags located in several courtyard areas which we did not use, but found it to be a fun touch. There are PLENTY of very wooded tent camping sites available but none were occupied during our stay. All in all a perfectly pleasant campground. We would stay here again if in the area.

We chose this campground for one reason - location to downtown Louisville. My husband and I were in town to run the Derby Marathon and needed a campground which was as close to the start line as possible. This was perfect and really all we needed for this trip. We invited some fellow runners to join us for dinner and they commented it was nothing more than a glorified parking lot and I agree. There is a pond nearby which was fun to walk around with our dog, but no other scenery or other typical campground amenities. In fact, there were no campfires allowed, which is typically a deal-breaker for me (but again, it was all about the location this time). I found the manager to be condescending and unfriendly. While she was not rude or mean, she was visibly irritated by the fact that I had brought my dog with me into the office (despite no signage to the contrary). We would stay here again only to run the marathon again because location to the starting line is about the only thing this place has going for it.
