A good place for one or two days. No water hookups. When they say a site is 45 feet, that's all it is. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed two nights at Alum Creek...just the wife, myself and our two dogs. Stayed on the L Loop and had a very nice site that really made you feel like you were camping in the woods. Only had electric (as most state parks) but filling the fresh water tank was not a problem. Restrooms/Showers were some of the nicest we have seen from a state park. We stayed here because of the dog park. Although not in the campground, it is only approx. 3 miles away and made for a quick easy drive. Would definitely come back again. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have dogs...bring 'em. Outstanding dog park very close to the campgrounds. It was a huge fenced in area that had kiddie pools for the dogs to jump in. The other people and dogs were very friendly and our two pooches loved it. They also have an area fenced off for the dogs to swim in the lake. This made this place perfect our pets. We were there 2 times / day and really wore our dogs out.

The sites at Alum Creek State Park are large, well separated, and very deep. The campground has private access to a lake, nature trails, and it's own small beach. The downside is the sites (with three exceptions) are 50 amp electric only and the AT&T cell service is very poor. The campground has no wifi and it was very difficult to use our AT&T hotspot because the signal was so weak. Although there are camp hosts there was minimal supervision and on the weekends the campers were very noisy until way past two. The area and campground have a lot of potential but I wouldn't make a point to stay here again. It was $21 a night and we stayed in site E18 which was very nice. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Columbus Zoo is relatively close.

Best thing about this park are spacious and isolated camp sites. The pads are asphalt and usually level but when it says slight slope, they are! Lots of trees so you hardly see other campers except along road. Wish they would put in some sites with full hookups. Park is very quiet during the week but gets busy on the weekends. Love staying at this park. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Columbus, so really fills up on Ohio State football weekends. Convenient to Metro parks, bike trails, shopping.

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.

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 ... We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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 camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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.
