Very basic, parking lot style, RV Park. No amenities or extra frills. Very tight quarters with little room between sites. Gravel pads and driveways are uneven and muddy. Sewer stand pipes are high (6"-8") above ground level and don't allow good drainage from lower sitting travel trailer; especially considering the site is off level, sloping away from the drain. No cable hook ups, but free wifi available, sporadically. Overall, not a terrible value for a very short stay, but we won't return, if we can find a better alternative. Unfortunately, there aren't many other options available in the area. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Alton RV Park, owner at Alton RV Park responded to this review

We are sorry this guest had a less than satisfactory stay. We are in the middle of an electrical upgrade, doubling our electric capacity. This will allow our voltage to remain more stable during hot weather. Unfortunately this camper was parked near an area where underground digging took place for the project. This no doubt temporarily caused some mud and uneven terrain at that time. We are working as quickly as possible to make a more enjoyable stay for each camper. As for the wifi; I am uncertain as to why there were issues with that service. Most of our feedback from campers is that our park offers some of the best free wifi coverage they have experienced while camping. We hired a top notch company to install radio towers; and since we are only 3 acres, the coverage is usually very good. We pay that company to oversee our wifi. At check in we give each camper the user name, password and phone number for tech support. We want our guests to have a positive experience.

Small campground just off busy road into Columbus area. Sites are small and tight. Park is clean and appears well kept. Owners are finishing utility upgrades to support power needs. Some of the longer sites could be challenging to enter pulling long trailer. Some might find the close quarters of the interior drives a challenge. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small and quite nice park. The owners are so accommodating and willing to help in any way. We were wary at first but when I called, the lady with whom i spoke was just the nicest and had exactly what we needed. We stayed a full week and felt "at home". We had a bit of snow two times and FRIGID weather. It is close to Camping World that had repair parts we needed due to the weather. No, it doesn't have amenities one might need for children, but it is perfect for a quiet stay. We would surely come here again. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Call ahead! We were traveling in the winter - this is one of only a very few parks open. We were lucky to get a site. There's very little to do in the immediate area - very nice Kroger is about a mile. Movie theater within 3 miles. Very close to Columbus where there is MUCH to do. Eat at Ann and Tony's in West Jefferson - about 5 miles. Delicious!

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. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were having work done on the motorcoach and found this campground online. Staff member greeted us promptly when we pulled in at closing time. She fixed us up with a full hookup-50 amp service. We had to parallel park on the outer circle but were just happy to be parked. Gravel sites and roads, small campground, crowded but okay for a night or two. Glad they had a place for us with all hookups. Thanks to the folks at Alton RV Park! We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place for an overnight. Sites are clean, roads are gravel but not dirty or rough. Sites are very tight together with no shade. You cannot leave awning out if not in unit. Ours went into the roadway when extended. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is close to Columbus and that is it's saving grace. This is not a destination park: no pool, hot tub or anything to do. There are no trees either - satellite reception would be great. The sites are clean but small - no room to extend an awning without imposing on your neighbor. There is only one toilet/shower/sink for each gender. This park is fine if you intend to do things in Columbus, otherwise not a place to relax. There is some road noise at night. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

I would only stay here if I had things to do in Columbus as there is truly nothing to do at this campground except use the bathroom. There are several other campgrounds with more family friendly features in Columbus area that while a little farther away, would be a better choice for a relaxing stay. I read this in a previous review of the park and wish I had paid better attention to that fact!

This is our second visit to this campground. It is about 3 miles south of I-270 but still convenient whether traveling through Ohio or if you are planning to spend time in the Columbus area. The owners are delightful and very helpful couple! When we arrived, they let us know that the weather forecast was for torrential rains, extremely high winds and possible tornadoes ... and where the storm shelter was in the event of either extreme winds or if the tornado siren was sounded. They also came around shortly after dinner time to check on any loose items and to make sure everyone knew where the storm shelter was located. We would stay there again. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hugely overpriced, no discounts offered (Good Sam, Passport, etc.). Tiny sites too close together, no amenities - no pool, no laundry even. Located on busy road (US 40) so even walking is unpleasant. Should be priced at $10 or so - adequate for an overnight stop but there doesn't seem to be any nearby competition so the price is way out of line. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a small, clean, well run, well maintained, privately owned RV park, this one is a gem.

This is a satellite-friendly RV park (no trees) on US Route 40 just west of Columbus, Ohio. We've stayed here more than a dozen times and have always enjoyed our stay. We have no trouble getting in and out of here with our 42-foot motor home and toad. Wifi works well, too.

This is not a fancy RV "resort." It has only the basic amenities, in a clean and neat setting. One advantage of that is that the park is always quiet...not a lot of kids running around.

We'll be back. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We appreciate this positive feedback from Rich, especially letting other campers know we do accommodate big rigs such as his 42 foot motor home. We had a new wi fi system installed last year (2015) and most feedback is that it is one of the best wi fi systems they have encountered on a campground.

This is what I refer to as a "glorified parking lot." A place to park your camper with full hook-ups, but that's all. You stay here when you plan to do other things in the Columbus area. Fire rings are not allowed on the sites and our site was too narrow to even open the awning. That was OK since we were only there for one night. The owner was friendly but very particular. I was very happy that she was able to accommodate our late departure, but at a cost per hour. Also, if you have more than 2 people, there is an additional cost for each one. It ended up being way more expensive than it was worth for a one night stay with no amenities. It's fine if you are just two people planning to spend most of your time away from the campground. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Alton RV Park, owner at Alton RV Park responded to this review

Our nightly rate is $40 per night, full hook ups at your site, 30 or 50 amp. Free wi fi. This cost is for two adults, children under 10 are free. Extra people over 2 are charged $3 per day. We are a mom and pop business, living on site. We aim to close at 8:30 pm so we are not on duty 24/7. As an incentive to have people arrive prior to 8:30 pm, we charge $5 fee if they will be later. We are not trying to get rich, we just like downtime ourselves. Our check out time is noon. We do allow later check out times (yes we charge extra for that); unless we have someone scheduled to arrive needing that site. If people stayed past check out time on a regular basis, we would not know what time to tell the new arriving camper that their site would be available. If having your awning out is important to you, please mention that when you make your reservation and we will try to assign you a site where that is possible. We have seen many awnings ruined over the years from campers going away and leaving awnings extended, thus we encourage everyone to roll up their awnings when away from their camper.
