 Alum Creek State Park - Located near Ohio's capital city, Alum Creek State Park is a popular boating and camping destination. Visitors can spend the day jet skiing across thousands of acres of water or find a quiet cove to fish or paddle. Perfect for swimming and sunning, the beach is the largest inland beach in the park system. Visitors with children can try the family-friendly mountain bike trail or the half-mile Storybook Trail.

 Buckeye Lake State Park - Ohio's oldest state park remains a beloved day-use destination. Buckeye Lake first served as a feeder lake for Ohio's canal system during the early 1800s. After the canal era, the new parklands began drawing tourists from around central Ohio. Today, the park's largest draw is the 3,100-acre lake which provides wonderful boating and fishing opportunities. A 4-mile shoreline path connects the North Shore to Lieb's Island and offers a variety of areas for fishing and relaxation.

 Madison Lake State Park - Lying within the vast Darby Plains of Ohio, Madison Lake State Park provides a peaceful day-use getaway for visitors of all ages. In the 1940s, a dam was built across Deer Creek, which created Madison Lake. Today, the 106-acre lake attracts anglers and offers excellent sailing, rowing, and canoeing opportunities. Lovely in any season, the park’s 1-mile trail takes visitors along the lakeshore and a shelter house provides the perfect spot for family reunions and other special events.
