We stopped at Cross Creek for overnight twice during one week. The campground is located in a nice neighborhood with a state park nearby. There are several chain restaurants, such as Bob Evans, Cracker Barrel, etc., at the interstate exit, as well as service stations. The grounds were very well landscaped. Although there are also seasonal and annual units in the park, they are neat and well maintained. The office staff were attentive to our request for a quiet site where we could rest for the night and she let us see the available sites before making a selection. We were satisfied with our sites both nights. The other campers also seemed to be enjoying themselves. We saw several children riding bikes and they were having a wagon ride one evening while we were there. My only complaint would be that the sites have fire rings. In this type of park where sites are close, the smoke is just too much. I actually had an asthma attack one night when an inconsiderate neighboring camper left a fire smoldering all night. Overall, we were pleased with the campground and the service we received. We would recommend to others. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice clean well laid out campground near a State Park Lake/Marina. Only reason did not rate higher was the very poor Wi-Fi. Did not work most of time and when it did was very slow for Internet use. It was laughable they ask you to donate to help pay for their system. When are park owners going to learn we want good Wi-Fi that can stream video just like at home? About 1/3 of the park is filled with long-termers but they maintain their sites in excellent and attractive condition. The park is very clean and well maintained. While there for a few days saw lots of maintenance people leveling sites and cleaning out fire rings. Roads are paved and sites are gravel with grass between sites. Pull-through sites are short and can just barely accommodate 45 ft RVs with tow. When I arrived I asked for a site that could access satellite and office manager was kind enough to drive me around to pick one. Most sites have one or more trees but many are open enough to use satellite. Park is quiet out in country but close to good shopping areas and reasonable drive to Columbus.

We stayed here during the Fantasy of Lights and loved how the park was decorated and had hot chocolate and cookies every night. The people in the office were great and we enjoyed hiking in the area. Everything was very clean and you could tell they were keeping the park up very well. There were a lot of seasonal campers - because it was winter. Being able to buy propane at the park was a big plus. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
If you are there in December, be sure to see the Fantasy of Lights. It was wonderful and really added to our holiday spirit.
We had a premium site, longer and a pull thru. Site was a little sloped front to back and side to side. I call the gravel "ankle busters" due to it being so large and would twist out from under your foot. I did notice several of the drives done in small pea limestone which looked much easier to walk on. The width was a little tight and we could not walk easily on the one side due to a tree stump in the pathway. It had an x on it so maybe they are taking it out?! The campground is very nice, staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was clean and a nice size. We did not use or check restrooms. Several full season campers all in nice condition and friendly occupants. The Park's flowers were just beautiful, in planted baskets and beds. We have camped here before and will camp here again. Dog friendly. Due to the narrow walk around on our site,the slope and large gravel- I gave it an 8. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fantastic facility, almost a destination itself, though it is about 25 minutes from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and Zoombezi Bay Waterpark. This is a very family friendly campground with paved roads on which to ride bikes or scooters, pedal cars to rent, a pool with a lifeguard and a shady and imaginative playground area. At the same time, it is a quiet place, mostly flat, well-manicured and sparkling clean. The trees seem to absorb noise and it is a joy to be outside. There is good space at each site and plenty of room to park 2 vehicles along with the camper. Our site was gravel and very level. The picnic table was round with 4 benches that swiveled out for ease of entry, a very interesting and appreciated feature, and sitting on a nice concrete pad. Normally, we would avoid a park like this, designed to accommodate children so well, since we are two adults. But this park made for a very pleasant stay for us and we definitely will return, if in the area again. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great camp ground with a very friendly staff! Extra care was taken every day to mow the grounds and take care of all the flower beds and it showed. Lots of activities for the kids, with a very nice pool area and playground. The camp is conveniently located to the Polaris Center in north Columbus and next to Alum Creek Lake. For the dog lovers, a great fenced dog beach is only two miles away. The sites are large and easily accessible. Wi-Fi worked, but was a little weak, especially on the weekend when the park was full. The rate reflects a weekly rate. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We spent two nights here while visiting area attractions. The site assigned to us (625) was a small pull-thru on a corner. The site was level and had little shade. It had one small tree which could not shade any of the site. The interior roads were all paved and in good shape. There are a lot of seasonal sites but they are all well kept and look nice. The entire campground is well maintained. The check-in went smoothly. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool looked nice but we did not use it. There is a nice playground for kids. There is also a dog park but it is small. Not nearly enough room for a dog to get any exercise. The campground was relatively quiet despite the number of children. We were far enough away from the playground and pool to help with noise. There was not a lot of golf cart traffic as in some other campgrounds. They have a short walking trail that was in good shape and also a small disc golf course. We only had water and electric at our site but there is a convenient dump station near the exit. Over all we felt this was a very nice campground and would stay here again if we need to stay in this area. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
The staff was friendly and helpful. They allowed us to choose our site from those available. Our site was fairly level. The park was peaceful and quiet. We took advantage of the free horse shoes and shuffle boards. The playground was only for toddlers. The 4 person bikes were a blast. We rented them for $10 for 30 minutes. The store had a great selection. There was a septic smell by the office. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Only one night stay. Very congested entrance and exit. You pick out your own site which is very time consuming and slows everyone up at checkin. Lots of the sites are unlevel. Staff seemed very frustrated and short staff, but they were friendly. Stayed here because it was close to Columbus Zoo. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Very nice. Railroads are a bit narrow, but can be easily negotiated even with a toad. People are friendly and helpful. We had to postpone our arrival for several days and they put our prepayment to "on account" so we didn't lose any money. Would stay here again. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
This park has a very pleasant appearance with clean, neat and well spaced sites. The Wi-Fi, even at the west end of the park was excellent. We had a major thunderstorm, but the standing water immediately afterwards was minimal. All roads are paved, the driveways are gravel and most are quite level. They also have a good sized trading library. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Well-maintained, pleasant surroundings. Paved roads; although, somewhat narrow. Gravel sites, mostly level. Good Wi-Fi. No cable. Would stay here again. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here with a group. Our pull through site had standing water, and I spotted a few in the area with the same drainage problems. Site was more mud than gravel. A nice park and still early in the season. Hook-ups were close and worked fine. Excellent wi-fi. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice place, friendly, quiet, lots of trees and they were all decorated for fall and Halloween. Restrooms were clean and there were some at the far end of the park that were cleverly put in what looked like a storage shed. Highly recommend for overnight or longer. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects weekly rate. And this is one of two major complaints I have about this park: it is just ridiculously expensive. At $244/week and no monthly rate, it is the most expensive place we have stayed for 7 weeks. We have to come here because we have family here to visit and there simply is no competition, but after fulltiming for five years, alas this is absolutely the most expensive place we have stayed in the country and we have stayed at better parks/resorts than this. And they have the gall to ask for a donation for their free Wi-Fi and charge guests $4 to enter on weekends! Everything else said here is true: very family oriented; lots to do especially on holidays; seasonal sites are well kept as is the whole park; only 6 miles from EVERYTHING you could possibly need; nice pool with a guard; very pet friendly; staff is extremely cordial and helpful; nice little store; across from Alum Creek recreational area; woodsy trails to follow; etc. I just hate being nickel and dimed to death after paying so much to be there in the first place. Second complaint: NO water pressure. Now they will tell you it's your rig, not them, but before we got here we stayed in many parks with no water problems. After we left, we had no water problems. The whole time we were here, we had less than 40 psi pressure, measured by our gauge. We will not be staying here again. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
