Campground Description

Alum Creek's 3,387-acre reservoir and 4,630-acres of gently rolling span of fields and woodlands provides a hub of recreational activity just minutes from Ohio's capital city. Quiet coves nestled among shale cliffs await the solitary fisherman in the park's northern reaches while sunseekers mingle with thousands on Ohio's largest inland beach.

    Questions   [ask a question]


    Q: the camping fees are per night... you can have up to 2 pets and 6 campers on the same site for the same price if you have more then 6 you will need more sites. if you are a weekday camper like i am get a passport america card.. and you get 50% off during the weekday.. which puts the price in the $15 range per night which you cant beat the campground is nice and safe. I go about 40 nights a year.. ( i live 2 miles down the road) and never had a issue . Just understand there are 3 full hookup sites and they are not in good parts of the park... but if your looking for electric only i suggest the B sites.. B34 and the ones around that. hope this helps ! -Guest

    I will give the Park a 5 star review. But be aware of some of the park staff they are rude and very un helpful. Over all the park is a fun place if you like to camp. There are nice wooded sites aswell as some really cool water view sites. and a few open sites with no tress just open grass. I camp here alot about 40 nights a year if not more. I live 2 miles away from the park so we will bring our camper for a week or so and still continue regular life and enjoy camping at night when we are done with our day. The major holidays are really busy and if you plan on being there make sure you make reservations well in advance to get good sites. Other then that you can usually get any site with a week notice. The park is set up really nice and as camp grounds go its really big. the sites are not small and give you plenty of space. I feel the B road is the best sites if you like water view on B34 you can wake up with the sun rising over the water which is really nice. The park is clean and all the Camp host do a really good job taking care of it and are really helpful if you need anything when staff isnt at the park. You can find them on each road and the have a sign on there site that says camp host dont hesitate to find one if you need anything. I have never had problems with anything getting stolen while there i have left bikes, my jet skis boat ect and no one ever touched them. Also if you do have a boat or skis the B road has tie ups for boats behind site B34 so you dont have to take your boat in and out of the water while your there. If you dont have fire wood there are 3 places on old state to buy wood by the park. Over all i love this park and will continue to go there each summer for along long time.
