Very nice state park. There are a lot of things that need attention, but we really like this park. There is a lot to do here. Tis a a very large park. Just needs to have some new shower houses and the roads resurfaced. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Shopping and food are very close by. Delaware is a nice community just north of Columbus.

Hiking trails are good, fishing, boating, disc golf, swimming, picnics.

This is one of our favorite state parks. The spots are huge. They are set up in courts so you have few neighbors. There are miles of bicycling roads. Everything is always clean and well maintained. The dump station is easy to get to with both sides accessible so the wait is never long. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

Make sure you to go to the town of Waldo a short distance away to the G&R Grill for a fried bologna sandwich and a mile high slice of home made pie. Superb!

We've stayed here with friends many times and always enjoy it. The sites weren't mowed when we got there this time, but I saw the mowers in another area and asked them to mow our sites so we could set up and they came right over. The sites are level and the 50 amp service was great. It rained a lot in the few days we were here, but the site had enough slope that it didn't flood us out. The store hours were hit and miss so we couldn't get firewood when we needed it. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay and would return again. But there are problems. The facilities are old and not in really good repair. Paint peeling, roads not great. RV pads are narrow. Our site, 149, looked private on the map, but we shared our yard with the site next door. Nice people, but no privacy at all. Staff was friendly. Very weak Verizon broadband. Fair Dish signal. Our nightly rate was with Passport America. Without that discount, it would have been $35 a night. A site with electric only is not worth that. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of our favorite State Parks! The lots are huge with well trimmed trees. Great for bicycle riding. Has a nice sand beach with swimming lake. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

Camped in Area A for a weekend. Many shaded sites in this area. Pets are permitted. Site sizes vary and have fairly level paved pads. Toilet room / shower house is centrally located. Shower house is old and needs updated. Many locks on toilet stall doors are broke. Many, many bugs and spiders in shower house even though they are sprayed down with water daily. Showers have the timed push button faucet that require you to keep pushing the button for the water to stay on and is quite annoying. For the entire weekend we were here, we did not see a ranger patrolling one time. There is a small camp store at the campground entrance. Naturalist programs are available but are often repeated so if you camp here often this feature becomes boring. The beach is outside of the campground; not within walking distance. The beach was littered with some trash, cigarettes and had a lot of goose droppings; water was dingy and smelly but still had a lot of people swimming. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is our 4th trip to this State Park, and probably our last, unfortunately. While the other reviewer's hit it on the head for spacious sites and bike riding (those are pluses for sure). The bathrooms continue to be a problem for us. Although, somewhat clean, the mosquito and bug problem were at an all time high. There has been alot of rain, which might add to the bug population, but this has been an on-going problem since we started coming here. The bathrooms are in need of a serious update also to allow for a bit more privacy while changing. The shower nozzles were broken off, and the only time we saw the camper hosts in our section was when they rode the golf cart 500 feet to the dumpster, not at all friendly. Not that we need baby sitting, but the two spots next to us were very rowdy all weekend, with loud cussing and drinking, never saw the ranger all week until the day before we left. We thought this would be on our favorite list, thinking they would update the bath houses at some point, but we see the park declining more. Will not return. To many other nicer Ohio State parks out there, with better facilities. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really nice state park. It isn't crowded and the park itself is beautiful. The campground is well designed with large sites that give you some privacy. The bathrooms (my #1 concern with any campground) are about what I would expect for state park bathrooms. They're very basic but clean. I wish Delaware State Park had some full hook-ups or even water sites, but it's electric only. If they had those other facilities I'd give them a 10!

Having visited several of Ohio's state parks, we really found this one exceeded most in cleanliness, design, openness and separation of campers. We walked or drove through most of the camp areas to select our favorite sites and found many in different areas - we were looking for isolation, space available, lack of mud (it has been raining for nearly two weeks) and a combination of sun and shade. Many to choose from. There are pet areas - they are kept together and away from non-pet campers. We really liked this campground - all workers were helpful and very friendly. The rate reflects our Golden Buckeye discount of 50%. We will definitely return to this campground. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects Passport America; available sun-thurs. This is our 3rd trip to the park, lovely park, and this time bathrooms in sec 4 were clean and somewhat bug free. The park is great for riding bikes and the folks in the camp office were very friendly. If they updated the bathrooms, I would give them a higher rating.

Site 128. Nice and shady. Quiet at night. Grandchildren, ages 17 to 5 all had things they could do. Camp store adequately supplied and staff very courteous and knowledgeable and helpful. Camp host very friendly and spent the evening with us on our last night when the park was virtually empty after Memorial Day. Showers did not seem to have adequate temperature control for each shower. Laundry facility OK. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is beautiful, the bathhouses cleaner than last year when we were here. Just wish Ohio SP's would update their bathhouses, the bugs were horrible and no exhaust for the heat. Really the only bad thing I can say about this state park. The office people were more than nice. With updated bathhouses i would give a 9. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was beautiful, and had it not been for the horrible bathhouses I would give it a 9! The park playgrounds, sites were very nicely kept and in excellent condition, but the bathrooms were so bad I hated to use them; there were spiders and bugs and mildew on the shower curtains. I'm no sissy; but it was bad! Very old and outdated. If they would update the bath houses; they would have our business again; but not until. If you don't have to use them you will love the park. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
