While the water is not crystal clear, it’s not as scary as some of the horror stories I’ve heard from Deer Creek. At least with this beach, it is quite sprawled out, so you won’t have to worry about being packed in like sardines.

After hearing story upon story about state park beach nightmares of algae blooms, garbage, and dead floating fish. I was very skeptical that a nice swimming hole existed in our glorious state of parks and lakes.

It’s not as scary as some of the horror stories I’ve heard from Deer Creek, and that can be expected from all the litter bugs.

Beware though, the bathrooms are scary, but it beats using an outhouse! put it this way, this is a nice, feel free the solution to all of your swimming requirements if you are not so lucky to own your own pool, or own a pool pass, but at least with this beach, it is quite sprawled out, so you won’t have to worry about being packed in like sardines.

I so glad I listened to a friend and stopped by the beach at Alum creek during our two week heat wave. The beach is not bad at all. It looks like the rangers must sift, or rake the sand every few days to keep it from getting clumpy, and grimey with garbage from all the litter bugs.

While the water is not crystal clear, it’s not as scary as some of the horror stories I’ve heard from Deer Creek, and that can be expected from all stagnant water bodies. (lakes, reservoirs, ponds)Let me just put it this way, this is a nice.

Carl, Sugar, Bunker and me all went camping this weekend at alum creek state park. We had a blast. It was the 4th annual cattle dog campout. Ppl drove from all over the country to camp and have a cookout. We saw a ton of beautiful cattle dogs. Sugar and Bunker( Carl’s dog) are both shy so it was great therapy for them as well. Definitely going to go again next year.
