We stayed here during a very cold weekend in March. Only a small portion of the campground was open, although there were plenty of available sites. Spacing of campsites seemed normal for a state park, and even with the winter environment (no leaves) we felt there was good separation.
The first campsite we checked had the ground on the 50A outlet filled (with mud?). Rather than deal with that, we moved down to a different campsite with no issues.
Other than very occasional drive-bys each day, there were no staff at the campground at this time of year. Our only real complaints were that the state park staff provided misleading information about camping. (For example, they indicated that only A & J sections were for walk-ins; true in high-season, but no sites were reservable when we stayed and consequently the B & C sections that were open were also walk-in (and J was closed entirely). They also indicated that there was a fee to dump - again, true if you are not camping but not true if you camp.)
Although there were other campers at the park, it was very quiet the entire weekend we camped. We will return the next time we are in the area. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large, spacious, private sites. Easy to get to from I-71. Very busy on weekends but quiet during the week. Sites are asphalt and variously level. Some are very level, some are not. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Large park with very spacious sites and a very nice beach for swimming. Main complaint is lack of security in park. When we arrived we just drove to our site and never checked in, and were never questioned! There were cars in and out all night blaring their stereos and we woke up to find that our cooler left outdoors overnight was depleted. Not that I'm not grateful they only took drinks, but the "safe" feeling is gone. If I had wandered outside with protection, it could have gotten ugly ...

First site was very not level, however we were able to move to a more level site. Sites have 50 amp service, picnic tables, and a fire ring. Park as a whole was well kept up. There is a huge dog park (actually 3) in the park. One for small dogs, one for large dogs and a lake area for the all the dogs. My biggest complaint was the speed that fellow campers felt was appropriate to drive through the park at. They need to hand out some speeding tickets before someone gets hurt.Our rig is 40' long.

Most sites are electric only. The first site was not level, but we were able to move. Standing water on floor of toilets at all times of day. There are floor drains, but water does not drain to them. Standing water in changing area of shower stall. Trash and toilet paper on floor of shower house at 10pm and 4pm. Water was hot, and pressure was good in shower house. Lots of mosquitoes. Rate reflects Passport America discount during the week. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is one of my favorite state campgrounds. The sites are large and private with plenty of trees. There is plenty to do in and around the area. BTW, I'm a local and here is a tip: the lakes in Ohio are fairly pretty from afar, but we don't swim in them and you shouldn't either. They're absolutely filthy. Instead, ride a bike or go for a hike. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We camped in the one of the three full service sites. Not as secluded as the rest, but still had nice spacing between sites. Full service sites have an extra cement pad off the parking pad. Came in handy due to a big rainstorm the night before we arrived. Did not see a bad site. All were shaded and level. Will definitely be returning.

We were here for Memorial Day weekend, so the park was full. The site was nicely wooded and fairly quiet. The bathrooms were a bit buggy, but overall they were clean. We would camp here again. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We live in Columbus and had never camped here, so we decided to give it a try for a quick weekend trip. The sites were all very clean and most were shady, too. The campground is very large so bikes are a good idea for easy transportation within the campground. It was very hot when we were there, and the campground beach was pretty crowded but not unbearable. Our kids loved the activities in the nature center and the playground. We will definitely camp here again! We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here overnight while traveling. Sites are a little tight and electric is the only hookup. It is great to have the state parks open year round and nice to have power for the night. We have stayed here twice now in the off season. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Rate reflects winter season rate. This is a beautiful park built around a large reservoir. We took an over night stop here (45 minute drive from home) preparing for our first trip of the year and it was lovely. We did not use the restrooms on this trip and only a few were open, but my memory says they are clean but could use some renovation. As it was still considered winter season, the camp store was closed and water was not turned on at the spigots. There are plenty of paths to bike and walk, many along the shoreline of the lake. The sites are generous in size with quite a bit of natural brush used for separation and privacy. We will be back many times. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Old state park campground which needs to be updated. At least with water at each site. Nice lake and beach. Lots of areas to hike and bike. Park kept clean. Bathrooms are very old. Okay if you don't want the amenities. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We stopped at this park at the end of a 4 week trip. This is a beautiful big park. It is on a man-made lake (COE) and has some wonderful big, private campsites. Each campsite only has 30/50 amp electric although there are water spigots available throughout the park. We camped in the L section and it was quite nice. The shower house/bathrooms are older and have the painted brick walls found in many state park campgrounds. The floors were rock pebbles that have been cemented to the floor. The showers were warm (not hot) but sufficiently warm to take a shower. They do not have the flow controls that require you to constantly hit to keep the water running. This was nice as you could shower as long as you want without hitting a button to get more water. Since we brought our 2 dogs with us, we visited their dog park and it was GREAT. They have a very nice small and big dog area both with water available. They also have 2 additional dog parks right on the lake so that water-loving dogs could swim and fetch in the water. Our dogs loved that feature. The dog parks were built by volunteers and they obviously were dog people as it was built for both the owners and dogs to enjoy. The park itself is not far off the expressway and is easy to get to. We would definitely return. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Great campground! The only drawback are the bathrooms. They need some TLC. Otherwise sites are super and the park is clean with great bike riding for kids and good fishing spots. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.Undo

I wouldn't stay here again. The showers were disgusting, they smelled, had bugs in them, and I felt dirty after being in them. I couldn't wait to get out. Also, we had to leave early and the lady in the office wouldn't take pity on us and return any unused nights we had. I wouldn't recommend this.
