Discover Buck Creek State Park, OH

If your RV camping trip is taking you to the Midwest, make sure to stop into Ohio and spend some quality time in the great outdoors. On the outskirts of Springfield, Ohio, about 40 minutes northeast of Dayton, and 20 minutes south of Urbana, you’ll find the massive 1,896-acre Buck Creek State Park.

In the 1830s, the US-40 road was built through Clark County which helped connect the great farmlands of the area to the rest of the nation, causing Springfield to grow exponentially. In the 1960s and ’70s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the Clarence J. Brown Dam and Reservoir and gave it to the state of Ohio to use as a park. In 1975, Buck Creek State Park was opened to the public.

Buck Creek State Park is located in the west-central portion of Ohio and completely surrounds the Clarence J. Brown Reservoir, which makes it a perfect place for any water sports enthusiast. Whether it’s swimming, fishing, or boating, Buck Creek State Park has you covered. Book an RV in Clark County today.

Getting Outdoors

It’s no surprise that the Clarence J. Brown Reservoir provides ample opportunity for Buck Creek State Park campers to have some fun in the water. This 2,120-acre lake has a four-lane launch ramp for boats, and both motorized and human-powered boats are welcome. There's no cap on horsepower in these waters, so feel free to hit the throttle. There's also a marina on-site where you can buy fishing gear, boating equipment, and even top off the tank.

While pets aren't allowed on the 2,400-foot swimming beach, humans sure are. Post up on the white sandy shores and watch the waterside view. Take a dip in designated areas of the lake. Make sure to check the website for the most up-to-date water quality advisories.

Is there a hiker in your crew? Buck Creek State Park provides nearly six miles of hiking trails to traverse. All four trails have a difficulty rating of moderate and vary in length. Bring your binoculars and your keen eye just might find some fun animals. Birdwatchers love these hiking trails. A few more trails are located just outside the park and are open seasonally.

Camping at Buck Creek State Park

Buck Creek State Park campers have over 100 campsites to choose from when booking their stay. Of those, 86 have electrical hookups at 30 amps; however, there are no water or sewer hookups on-site. Each site comes with a fire ring so the whole family can roast marshmallows and sing songs around the campfire. All sites are back-in only, and dump stations are available for RV rentals.

In the campground, visitors have access to public toilets, hot showers, and a public beach. Wi-Fi isn't available in the park, and cell phone service is spotty, but that just makes it easier for guests camping at Buck Creek State Park to connect with the natural world around them. The park also provides basketball courts, laundry facilities, and even a camp store to stock up on your camping goodies.

Exploring the Area

In Champaign County, just outside the park, you’ll find the Cedar Bog State Natural Preserve. Explore all 428 acres of bogland and fall in love with the landscape. This area is perfect for birdwatching and observing the fen’s natural beauty. It's a nice mixture of wetlands, prairie, and bogs that contributes to the high diversity of the preserve’s insects, plants, and animals. If you come in during the right time of year, the fields will be speckled with wildflowers in bloom.

Do you like corn? Who doesn’t like corn? Well, if you happen to be camping at Buck Creek State Park around the first week of September, make a point to head to South Vienna for their annual South Vienna Corn Festival. For a small town, South Vienna creates quite a buzz with this festival. One of the biggest events of the year, The Corn Festival hosts cook-offs, rides, games, contests, and live entertainment for all its guests to enjoy.

While you’re there, South Vienna is also home to the Ohio Railway Museum. Since 1948, the Ohio Railway Museum has educated the masses and preserved the legacy of one of the building blocks of modern America. Learn all about the history and significance of the Ohio rail system. See these giant iron machines in their well-preserved state.

Within 20 minutes of the park down Highway 40, you'll find a slew of gas stations at the ready. Fill up your tank, grab some snacks for the road, then maybe get some dinner at a local restaurant in Sunnyland. When it’s time to get back on the road, there are two major cities on either side of the park within one hour: Dayton to the west and Columbus to the east.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.
