We spent 3 nights at this park and loved it. The campground part of the park is about 3.5 miles from the park entrance and well away from the day use area. Site 16 was probably one of the largest sites we've ever had. Partial shade, well manicured and level. 20, 30 and 50 amp service worked well. AT&T worked great. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was the price of firewood. $5.00 for 4 really small pieces. We spoke with one of the camp hosts, pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay here again if we ever head back this way. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our maiden voyage in our camper. The park layout is very unique, several area to choose from with each area has its own bathhouse and camper host. Host offers free coffee and have pastries for sell in front of the bathhouse on Saturday mornings. Only downside is no lake views from the campsites. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed our two nights at Delaware State Park! It was a beautiful campground with well-kept, spacious, and nicely-designed RV spots. The staff was very friendly and helpful! There were only a few things that we noticed that they could have done better. Signage coming into the park was just fine, but there wasn't anything going the opposite direction. Could we please get some "exit this way" signs? Also, they could use another dump station lane or two. The line for dumping was dreadfully long for those checking out on Sunday afternoon. Of course, everyone waited until the last minute to leave, but there still should be another lane. Two dump lanes sharing just one water connection is a bit inadequate for 200+ spots. And the last thing I didn't like too much was the firewood. It was a bit pricey (five bucks for three pieces), and what got to me the most was that they wrapped it in plastic wrap. What do YOU think that most of the folks who buy that wood is going to do with all of that plastic??? You got it! They're going to throw it in the fire. Not very eco-friendly for a state park to be wrapping their wood in plastic. (We did not!) I know, it sounds like a lot of complaining, but they're just suggestions. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Delaware State Park and would certainly stay there again! All-in-all, we loved our visit. WATCH OUT for those "strafing horse flies" though!!! They'll git ya! We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Do NOT try to pull into the Speedway gas station down the road if you don't have diesel!!! The gas-only pumps are not sufficient for pulling a rig through.

Love the layout of this campground--four loops, each with bathhouse (and laundry) in center (with fresh water spigot outside), and five spokes coming off the center for campsites, each ending in a loop so that it is easy to drive around (with fresh water spigot in center of each of those loops). The layout allows for most sites to be very spacious and many with decent privacy from neighbors. Camp loop roads and sites asphalt. Mostly level. Easy to navigate. Sites range from full sun to full shade and everything in between. Grounds are very well kept. Verizon on slow side. Picked up good over-the-air TV signal (got all the major networks). We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 176. It was a very large site - approx 100 ft X 100ft. The pad was level and quite long. A nice large fire ring with a swinging grill grate was included! Not a lot of shade in the site but it wasn't horrible. The shower house was older but clean. Sure there were bugs, but you are camping! Fresh water was available in the branch we were staying in as well as near the office at check in. No water at each site. Had electric hook up. The post had plugs for all types of amps. Dump station was clean and at least 2 vehicles could use it at a time. Firewood was available for purchase at the office for $5 a bundle. The sites were rather private and the park was very quiet. Lots of hiking trails too! We camped at Delaware State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice older park. It is a long drive from the main highway to the campground. Site was in a cul-de-sac with very little traffic. Park staff is to be commended. A severe storm had rolled through a week earlier and there were many large trees downed. Also lots of fallen limbs at many sites. Most of the downed trees had been removed and the limbs had been cleared from the sites. The only negative issue was with the dumpsters; they were in overflow mode while we were there. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Older campground but well maintained and clean. Lots of sites, mostly shaded, but quite full on the weekends. No hose bib for potable water in our loop, so had to return to the check station to find a water point. College students running the gate could have been much more forthcoming with information. I felt they were a bit lackadaisical with their procedures and could use some adult supervision. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Picnic sites and shelters, older play grounds, marina, beach for lake swimming. Four camping loops with about 40 sites each. Close to Columbus. Made a day trip to Dayton and Wright Patterson AFB to see the museum. Well worth the hour drive and a great rainy day activity.

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area open in early April to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. This is a very nice campground. The 'pod' layout created generally large campsites, some shaded, others in full sun, some private, others within site of others. Most were level with a paved parking pad. Our pod had electric only sites and a bath house. There's water and a dump station near the park entrance. Rates are $28 per night with 50% off for Passport America. There's no wifi. Verizon and ATT coverage was ok. The park is self service early in the season. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park is very nice. We stayed here 5 nights and the park is quiet, clean and the facilities are well kept. Our site had a fire ring and picnic table. The roads are paved and the sites are as well. All of the sites are back in only, but they are very spacious in width and length. There is no water at the site, or sewer, but there is electric and a dump station. The only downside to the park is the rude staff that works in the entry booth to the park. She deliberately keeps the lights off to make it appear that the office is closed during working hours. If you need to purchase anything or renew your reservation you will have to stop and go in the booth, even if it looks closed. Despite that, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

Shopping and food are very close by. Delaware is a nice community just north of Columbus.

Hiking trails are good, fishing, boating, disc golf, swimming, picnics.

This is one of our favorite state parks. The spots are huge. They are set up in courts so you have few neighbors. There are miles of bicycling roads. Everything is always clean and well maintained. The dump station is easy to get to with both sides accessible so the wait is never long. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

Make sure you to go to the town of Waldo a short distance away to the G&R Grill for a fried bologna sandwich and a mile high slice of home made pie. Superb!

We've stayed here with friends many times and always enjoy it. The sites weren't mowed when we got there this time, but I saw the mowers in another area and asked them to mow our sites so we could set up and they came right over. The sites are level and the 50 amp service was great. It rained a lot in the few days we were here, but the site had enough slope that it didn't flood us out. The store hours were hit and miss so we couldn't get firewood when we needed it. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay and would return again. But there are problems. The facilities are old and not in really good repair. Paint peeling, roads not great. RV pads are narrow. Our site, 149, looked private on the map, but we shared our yard with the site next door. Nice people, but no privacy at all. Staff was friendly. Very weak Verizon broadband. Fair Dish signal. Our nightly rate was with Passport America. Without that discount, it would have been $35 a night. A site with electric only is not worth that. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped in Area A for a weekend. Many shaded sites in this area. Pets are permitted. Site sizes vary and have fairly level paved pads. Toilet room / shower house is centrally located. Shower house is old and needs updated. Many locks on toilet stall doors are broke. Many, many bugs and spiders in shower house even though they are sprayed down with water daily. Showers have the timed push button faucet that require you to keep pushing the button for the water to stay on and is quite annoying. For the entire weekend we were here, we did not see a ranger patrolling one time. There is a small camp store at the campground entrance. Naturalist programs are available but are often repeated so if you camp here often this feature becomes boring. The beach is outside of the campground; not within walking distance. The beach was littered with some trash, cigarettes and had a lot of goose droppings; water was dingy and smelly but still had a lot of people swimming. We camped at Delaware State Park in a Tent Trailer.
