Overnight stop heading to Indiana. Very nice little park to pull off the road and relax. Temperature today (9/7) was HOT, so we had to run A/C. No shade in center of campground. FHU site worked as they should. Lots of local HD over the air TV channels. Verizon and ATT, both voice and data are excellent. - moderate camper

Very close gravel sites. We had a "back in", which was really a parallel parking spot along the road...but we had two of these spots and were able to back directly in and pull directly out when leaving. There was a nice shaded grassy spot on the streetside. People were very friendly. Power was low in the afternoon with all the rigs running A/C, but our power monitor did not shut us down. - 2hams

Alton RV park is a RV parking lot with full hookups.
The only bathhouse had one toilet and one shower each for men's and women's, both clean.
On our visit the outside temps were hot and the electric voltage with nothing plugged in was 119VAC, but plugged in with one air conditioner running the voltage was low. At mid-day the voltage was 109, and at mid-afternoon it was 106. It got as low as 105VAC for an extended period.
My neighbor confirmed the same and said it was the lowest he had seen. - William3

Open April 1-Oct. 31st. Located at the Plain City Fairgrounds. It is generally quiet, but I expect this can vary based on other programs planned during your stay (i.e. music in the park, Steam Threshers Festival, Rod Builders). The following activities are available: playground for children, disc golf course, basketball court, baseball field, short level hiking trail within park, city pool for an additional charge. Staff is helpful and friendly. We will definitely come here again if we are in the Columbus area. - B D HOWie

Only one spot has sewer. We reserved online, then called to clarify details. There had been an event the weekend before, but only a handful of campers there when we arrived, so we were able to pull through our spot without issue. It's pretty much a large park with hookups scattered throughout. The bathrooms were acceptable, on the cleaner side, but the shower was a bit scuzzy. I like the quiet setting, though no gate, and it's a public park so anyone can drive in and around. Jan and Tony's Pizza delivers here, and there's a nice little bowling alley just down state road 42, next to the Dutch Amish restaurant, Der Dutchman. Don't follow phone directions to Park Street, enter from N Chillicothe St. - RVBlessings

This is a city park near Columbus. The park is large with baseball fields, a swimming pool, pavilions, walking trail, and playgrounds. The sites are not very well marked and they are on grass. We were there when it was dry so that was not a problem. But I would not want to park there in the rain. Some of the sites showed that campers got bogged down in wet weather. However, the park was beautiful and very well maintained. Lots of green grass and fabulous old trees. The nature trail is a lovely 1/2 mile walk. Very close to the small town. There is a small office but the attendant is mostly available by phone. She was very responsive to us when we called her on her cell phone - which is posted at the office. - ArkansasTraveler

A typical State Park with dated Shower & rest room facilities which I did not use. However the campsites are some of the best I have seen in a Ohio State Park. 30 and 50 amp electric but no water or sewer hookups. All sites are level or very close to being level, paved, table & fire pit. Many are fully shaded, large, and spaced apart for a feeling of privacy. I stayed 3 days which it rained every day and some of the sites became filled with water. The parking pads are slightly above ground and stayed water free but the area where the fire pit & table are located was under water and not good for tenters. Not all all sites suffered but quite a few did so be aware. Had there been no rain just about any site in the park would be great. There is a State Run golf course nearby that is a great bargain ( The reason I went there) Even with all the rain the course was playable. The beach is locate 4- 5 miles away & I did not use it. The "Play Ground" in the Campground has old dilapidated equipment and was unkempt . I'll return ( because of the Golf Course) but be glad I'm self contained. About 20 sites are " walk-in" sites (first come, first serve), all others can be reserved. - cecerecreek

Beautiful setting. No hot water for showers or handwashing and men's restroom nasty, seriously needed cleaning. - cmclark

We camped here for 4 days. The sites are mostly level on the non-lake side, but some are severely sloped. Almost all are well secluded. We love how remote this park is and how the sky revealed 5-6 satellites and a half-dozen shooting stars each night; very little light pollution. It's remote, but it's still within 30 minutes to Columbus. We spent a day at the State Fair and another at COSI, but the others were spent relaxing at the beach, biking and fishing. there are also 2 parks with swings, rocking things and marry go rounds. Beware: There is very little cell service with AT&T and Verizon, and no Wi-Fi except at the Lodge. The Lodge is a 5 minute drive away and the nearest grocery store (not counting the decent little-little camp store) is 15 minutes away (but it's near a creamy whip so that's OK). The town is about 12 blocks square so the IGA is stocked as such. The beach is nice and sunny and sandy with a fenced-off pet beach, but it's a 10-15 minute drive away. This is frustrating because you can see it from the campground, but have to go AROUND the lake to get to it. Also, it's important to keep in mind that this is a State Park, not a commercial one, and you're surrounded by woods so the restrooms are a little rough, but the water is hot and they have the fewest 'pets' crawling around we've seen. All-in-all we loved (loved) the seclusion provided at most sites and the campground in general. This is our second trip and won't be our last. - ExcitedExperiencedCamper

This place is a dump. Not maintained at all. Full-time campers have trashy sites. No kidding when I say this, FT camper was sitting outside his camper in his underwear, his wife in shorts and just a bra drinking PBR. Tried to get hold of management but they never answered the phone for 3 days. Grass had not been mowed in a couple of weeks, tree limbs everywhere, their so-called pavilion had 4 ft holes in the roof. Hard to tell where sites were because the lots were grown over by grass. When I asked about a picnic table they said go find one. Same with a fire ring. They made their web page look so great, but the place is a DUMP. Was so not worth the drive way out there. Go somewhere else, unless you like Deliverance type of a setting, just listen for the banjo music. Seriously. - Wayne Conway

We were camping with a group of 4 campers and all booked together. When we arrived they had not kept us together. The reservation does say site #s not guaranteed but they could have tried to keep us together. There was no picnic table at our site when we arrived. We were told picnic tables and fire rings are first come first serve we would have to go find one ourselves. Had to go to the rustic side and load a table into the truck to move it to our site. Site had piles of nails around where fire pits had been moved after burning wood with nails. We ended up with a nail in our tire. Nice large pool but most of it is under 3 feet deep with one small corner being 3 ft 8 inches. Nice for little kids but not for our teenagers. Extremely rude people who cut through our site continuously to get to the pool, but the way the pool and playground are situated you almost have to cut through a site to get to them. Bath house is very old. Toilet seats broken, shower that doesn't work but not marked out of order so you don't know it doesn't work until you are in it trying to use it. When mentioned to the staff that the water won't turn on were told they shut the water off to that one its broken. Some kind of party going on at one of the picnic shelters until after midnight playing loud music - quiet time definitely not enforced. The only good thing I can say about this campground is they did let us do a late checkout since we were there for a softball tournament in the area and had a game after normal checkout time. Will not return and would not recommend. - Luv To Camp

My review is exactly the same as the other review for Sept 2012 on this Campground. Another Big Rig and I stayed here for 3 weeks, and we had the best time there. The firewood was a little over priced, but the maintenance man and staff were the best. The older lady staff person, not so much. Virgin Mobil phone service was fair and good enough to tether off of. We we really enjoyed the stay and would not shop for another park in the area. I will return. - startech

Fantastic independent park north of Columbus. Was real convenient for us for two nights, as we were visiting a friend in the OSU heart hospital. Wish we could have stayed longer! So much to do on site that we never got to take advantage of. The staff and facilities that we did experience were top notch! - Ron and Terri

This was our second time to stay here. It is a great, clean campground in a quiet setting and easily accessible. We stayed in one of the long premium pull through sites near the entrance - the site is level and easy to get in and out. Nearby is a wonderful state park with all sorts of facilities, a lake, and a large clean off-leashdog park. Easy to get into Columbus. We stayed in a 45 foot motorhome and would stay there again. - Tom Oelsner

We're fulltime RV'ers and I'm not sure I've ever given a park a 10, so this may be a first! I can't think of anything bad about this park. Wish we would've had more nights to spend there. They have updated a section of the park and made it all full hookups, level asphalt paved drives, concrete patio, shrubs all around for privacy. It is just a few miles away from Columbus OH so there is plenty around to do. We were there for a specific event so we didn't get to enjoy the lake but there were lots of people out there on the lake. Lots of trails around. No WIFI but our Verizon signal was good as was AT&T. We were able to get satellite coverage. They accept Passport America Sun-Thurs. We'd definitely stay here again. We have a 35' fifth wheel and had no problems with the length, width or low limbs, etc. - jacknpeg

Just electric hook up on most sites. We reserved the site on line. It is difficult to see what you are getting. Nice park on the lake with some sites with water access. We stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and the park was packed. Bring your boat. - Bburgbrewer

Checked in without a reservation. Passport America rates not available on weekends and holidays.
The first site assigned, even though we told the attendant our length, was way too short. The second site, while long enough, had a squatter on it! We called the office and let them know, but no one from the park came down!
When we checked out the following day, my wife again reported the squatter and the campground attendant said: "Yeah, we know about him."
Rest rooms were disgusting!
Our site was littered with cigarette butts: maybe from the squatter?
Electric only at this site, but full service sites are available. - thetravelkids

The park is a bit difficult to get to but is a very attractive park when you do with many large trees and lots of shade. Sites in the heavy timber have gravel pads with very little grass, due to the lack of sun but are nice on warm days. Overnight sites are pull through with easy access, gravel pads that are close to level. Nice swimming pool, very quiet and friendly. We were happy that we found this out of the way park and will go back if we travel that way again. - RV Camper1

We had reservations and arrived in the evening after the office had closed, but an escort met us at the entry gate and took us to our site. The pull through site was large enough for our 40' rig and tow vehicle, and was fairly level when we pulled in. It was mostly grass though, so we were not level by morning. The park could use an upgrade as there were a lot of sites with tall grass and weeds. Many of the seasonal sites were pretty old and not kept well while others were very nice. There is plenty of shade and mature trees. I think the park owner relies on volunteer campers to help maintain it, but there is potential here to make this an outstanding campground. It was very quiet and peaceful which is what we were looking for. The people were extremely friendly and accommodating. We don't usually come this direction, but I would stay here again if we are back in the area. - RNRVtravler
