Alum Creek Lake is located in Delaware County, Ohio, north of Columbus between I-71 and US 23.
Alum Creek Lake was built by the US Army Corps of Engineers in the early 1970’s, and Alum Creek has several missions: 1) Flood Damage Reduction along Alum Creek, Big Walnut Creek, the Scioto River, and Ohio River; 2) Water Quality and Water Supply ; 3) Recreation and Natural Resource Management.
The majority of the park is leased to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to operate Alum Creek State Park. The Corps of Engineers manages and operates Alum Creek Dam, the Visitor Center, and the Below Dam Recreation Area. The US Army Corps of Engineers Visitor Center and Ranger Programs are a great way to learn more!
