This is by far the best campground we have visited this year in central Ohio. We have visited nearly every campground within a 50 mile radius of central Ohio, first year RV campers. We stayed over Labor Day weekend. Our door opened less than 20 foot from the water's edge, was extremely busy this weekend, but all went smoothly. They only have gray-water, but as a tenter/ pop-up camper this was not a big deal. They do have dump station and propane refill station. The pool seems to be less than a couple years old, very nice and large. Splash ground wasn't operational yet. On Friday nights they have pizza and cookies delivery to your site. The fire wood is delivered to your site. They pickup your garbage, just set it by your site-marker. All is cowboy/cowgirl themed, "petting zoo" (donkey, goats, pig). Didn't see any geese, but there were lots of friendly ducks. Stocked pond, caught a few fish right on site. Sites are well defined with most having a bit of split-rail fencing defining sites. Extremely friendly staff. Excellent service. We liked it so much, we booked for the Halloween weekend before leaving.

We wanted to really like this place. The reviews were ok, the amenities looked good. The nickel-and-diming they did, among other things, was what soured our experience. The roads/paths in the facility are horrible, partially paved, mostly pot-holes. They are narrow and some turns would be near impossible for a large rig. There seems to be some sites that were better than others. Our site was very unlevel and mostly gravel. I couldn't drive a stake to put up the awning, had to tie to trees. Be very prepared to spend way more money that you anticipate. Even the little crafts, that our kids participated and their participation proved to be everyone else's entertainment for the evening, cost money to make the craft. If someone comes to visit, it will be very pricey, unless you are a seasonal camper here. They have a large water slide. The kids loved it but again, cost was additional for a non-seasonal camper. Be very careful if you have young kids doing the slide, the supervision at the bottom leaves a lot to be desired. They used to be KOA listed; do not know if KOA unlisted them or it was at the direction of the new owners. Suggest you save your money (and your sanity) and find another campground.

We love LazyRiver. We just got our 30 year old Coleman pop-up, new to us, and got it all fixed up. Lazy River was our first destination. It's close to home, with very large sites and lots of activities for adults and kids. Has a splash-ground, pool, stream (creek), zip-line, and lots to do. The people working here are awesome! Very professional and fun. We have been to LazyRiver twice this year. Rates are reasonable for all that you get. Would recommend this campground to anyone, RV'er or tenter.

Cross Creek is a very nice and clean, well maintained campground. Paved paths, very large pool (which was a god-send this year with 100 degree days), right across the road from Alum Creek, large inland lake. The sites were a little small, at least ours was for our pop-up. We thought we would hate this compared to other campgrounds, but it actually turned out quite well. We actually talked with our neighbors, all of our neighbors. I would highly recommend Cross Creek Campgrounds. Great time, great people. Super clean and very well maintained.
