First camping experience in our travel trailer and it was a nice wide space and plenty of room to park and still have room for truck and dog pen as well as picnic table and cooking prep table.

“Alum Creek may just be Columbus' best kept secret”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2018

Overall Rating

This was the second time we camped at Alum Creek. The first time was in site A44. During both visits we were very pleased with our private, shaded, and level campsites. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the bathrooms had been updated since our last visit in 2014. Even though the campground was completely full over the weekend, ... more

“Wonderful state park experience at the edge of Columbus”

Reviewed Sep 10, 2018

Overall Rating

We’re learning how many really nice state parks with lakes Ohio has, and how close to home. This is one of them, right on the outskirts of Columbus. The sites are variable but almost all would be acceptable, with level pads and ample grassy space, plenty of shade and variable but usually really good herbage between sites. The lake is t... more

“Premium site - not so much”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Per night includes reservation fee and half price nights with Passport America. This was an ok state park. Fairly wooded and overgrown. We paid extra for a premium water site. Save your money. Had to walk down a very overgrown trail and splash right into the lake. No bank but it did smell. Our site was small. Just fit our 30' ... more

“Closest public camping near Columbus”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice campground. All campsites have paved pads, picnic tables and fire rings. Most Sites are not that big but with vegetation grown up between sites there is plenty of privacy and shade. The lake has a small swimming beach and a few campsites have a path to water (to launch kayaks). The bathrooms are standard and the showers at shower... more

“Nice Park, Large Sites That Feel Secluded”

Reviewed Nov 14, 2015

Overall Rating

The sites for the most part are pretty big, like most Ohio state park campsites. This particular park is nice because the sites are heavily grown between sites so it gives you a feeling of being secluded. The park is located near major shopping and a couple of RV dealers including RCD RV Sales and Colerain RV. The lake is nice with a s... more

“Surprisingly good State Park close to large shopping mall”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2015

Overall Rating

Alum Creek State Park encompasses a 3,387-acre reservoir and 4,630-acres of fields and woodlands. It is within 15 minutes of Polaris Parkway, a large shopping mall to the north of Columbus and about 30 minutes from downtown Columbus. At first glance you may think this would be a disastrous combination for a camping location but the par... more
