Very Nice Campground.
We have been to lots of state park campgrounds. This is one of the best that we have been to. The sites are very private, you are right next to another campsite. And there are plenty of space to enjoy. There are full hook up site and just electric sites. We don't use the shower house but check them out and would rate them 6 out of 10. Some sites are lake front and they really nice views. We plan on being back soon.

Don’t waste your money. Go across the street to Cross Creek. Typical government run craphole. Bathrooms are absolutely disgusting, not even staying the whole weekend, I’d rather lose money than stay here another night!! DO NOT CAMP HERE!!

Great Campground For Families
Not much to say. We loved the size and privacy of the site and will be back.

Wow. Great park.
We love this place! Settled for an electric only site due to last minute availability; it was still a great time. Shower houses always had hot water. We’ll be back!

Alum Creek is one of the best campgrounds around. We always camp in the "B" loop, which has full hook-ups (water, sewer, and 30/50 amp electric). The water is clean and the pressure is adequate, and the power is reliable. The concrete pads are mostly all level, and every site has a fire ring, and table with benches. There are trees between the sites, adding to the privacy and dampening noises. There's also a small camp store with firewood and drinks, etc.
There are lots of campgrounds to choose from, but this one is our go-to!

Mix of full hook up sites and just electric sites. Sites are fairly roomy, nice paved roads. the spot we had a really nice paved pad. Water supply was from the city supply and was good. No cable tv, but picked up 35 digital channels over the air. Bring you own water line to fill up whenyou checkin. The ladies at the checkin store were awesome in helping me navigate the area and surrounding city.
The canpers beach is pretty bad off but the much larger one down the road was decent. Sand was an rocky sand and the lake water smelled kinda bad.
Bathrooms were decent, showers were okay.
Stayed here but went to the zoo and water park.

Nice, Clean Campsites
This is our 3rd time to camp at this State park. We enjoy the private site "feel" of all the campsites. There is electric at the sites, but no water. Stop at the Nature Center parking area to fill your fresh water before heading to your camp site.
This is a pretty expensive place to stay ($39) for a site with just electric, but trying to find an alternative "campground" in the immediate area is hard to find. I'm just not ready for parking lot camping for an overnight.
All and all, we will stop here again!

Please Help SOS !
Please please state of Ohio, help these little gems that our state has! Yes the camp sites are nice clean level isolated spots. However, the bathroom facilities have been sorely ignored. But I can see why in having so many camp sites verses the number of , I might say minimal operating showers and toilets for so many! Our state compared to let’s say North Dakota, 47th in population has the most organized, manicured, clean facilities that I’ve ever visited. Our DNR folks need to take a vacation out west some time.

Most sites are private and you really can forget how big this campground is because of all of the mature trees. Close to Columbus Zoo, caves, COSI, Polaris shopping center, Tanger Outlets, and much more.
