Good Sam RV Travel Guide & Campground Directory

September's Must-Stay Parks:
5-star Cross Creek Camping Resort is located in central Ohio

The award winning, 5-star Cross Creek Camping Resort is located in central Ohio in beautiful Delaware County, one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. Cross Creek is a family friendly campground with 133 full hookup, 59 water/electric and eight premium sites for a total of 200 spaces. The resort is beautifully landscaped with blacktopped roads throughout. Each site has a picnic table for the family meals and a fire ring to roast marshmallows and share stories. Most have patios of concrete or brick pavers.

The clubhouse, camp store, pavilion, playground and swimming pool are at the hub of the campground. The laundry room with state-of-the-art washers and dryers as well as the clean shower facilities, are open 24 hours a day, year round. In addition to a soothing dip in the outdoor swimming pool, folks enjoy an array of outdoor games including tennis, volleyball, basketball, bocce ball, shuffleboard, horseshoes or disc golf.

Cross Creek offers several themed weekends throughout the summer camping season beginning with an Easter Egg Hunt in March or April, followed by Patriotic Bike Parades, Pirates Weekend, Disney activities, a Luau, Mardi Gras, the Hospice Carnival over Labor Day and concluding with a Halloween Fall Fest in October.

Pancake breakfasts are prepared by our staff on special days including Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and holiday weekends. The Church at The Creek offers a non-denominational service each Sunday.

Each weekend is loaded with kids’ crafts; wagon, fire truck, or small train rides; organized entertainment; glow parades; magic shows, movie theme nights, ball tournaments and night time adult volleyball in the pool.

Cross Creek is close to Columbus with plenty of modern day shopping opportunities just five miles away at Polaris Fashion Place. We offer an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Alum Creek State Park is adjacent to Cross Creek Camping Resort affording our guests boating, fishing, biking, hiking privileges and access to Ohio’s largest inland beach.

If a sporting event is on your agenda, Columbus is home to the well known Ohio State Buckeyes as well as to the Clippers (baseball), Blue Jackets (ice hockey) and the Crew (soccer).

Museums, metro parks, the Franklin Park Conservatory, Center of Science and Industry (COSI), and Ohio Theatre are only part of the entertainment available.

The highly rated Columbus Zoo, Aquarium, and new Zoombezi Bay Water Park are just minutes away from Cross Creek. The famous Ohio State Fair held in August is just 20 miles away.

Being open all year provides a home base for snowbirds in migration and those needing a place to stay during the holidays. During the off-season an overnight camper might find himself invited to an impromptu pot luck or game night in our cozy clubhouse. Do not be surprised to find a jigsaw puzzle or card/board game in progress.

While Ohio offers beauty in all four seasons, the challenge of winter with its beautiful snow and sparkling ice is met head-on by our professional maintenance team with their tractors, snow blowers, and pickups equipped with plows assuring safe access within the campground.

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day each year, our owner and staff present Fantasy of Lights nightly to the community. Fantasy of Lights is a drive-thru show of over 1,000,000 lights woven into holiday and winter displays. While the show itself is not at Cross Creek, we top it off by offering a stopover at Cross Creek where free cookies and hot cocoa are served and a visit with Santa is highly anticipated. For the discriminate shopper, we offer unique items (some not available elsewhere) in our camp store that is transformed into a Christmas shop for the season. We offer 4-season camping with something for everyone. See you at “the Creek.”
