About Us:

Baylor Beach Park has a two acre water park, swimming lake with a gradually sloping sand bottom. The lake is surrounded by beautifully maintained sandy beaches and grassy areas.

To add to the fun we have diving boards for low or high adventures or why not see if you can be the one to stay on the log roll the longest. Our 90 foot tube of terror slide will thrill old and young alike. We offer an 18 hole miniature golf course that is challenging fun for all ages. Next to our swimming lake is a separate lake for paddleboats, funyaks, and aquabikes.

Baylor Beach Park has basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, cornhole, and playgrounds. Great fun for all ages!

We love Baylor Beach Park! This is our second visit here. We use the campground but haven't yet tried the water park. It looks like a great time for the younger crowd. We are seniors who camp all over the country whenever we can get a little time off work. The staff here are among the friendliest folks around. The campground is clean and full of great people. I highly recommend this park!

Overall, we had a fun experience at Baylor Beach Park. We camped in a travel trailer there because our family had it's reunion there this year. It was nice to have all the water activities available to make the time more enjoyable. The camp sites were very close together but there were many shade trees to make it feel a little cooler. The fire ring from our neighbor's campsite was very close to my trailer which I didn't care for. Many non-campers here taking advantage of the water park. They stayed away from the campsites so it was very quiet there day and night.

Awesome water park! Very family-oriented and well-maintained. Pool Water, bathrooms, and surroundings were very clean. Would be a very nice place for a group gathering as they have several pavilions. Nice diverse crowd of people too. Worth the drive from Columbus!

A little chaotic, but fun. You pay extra for paddle boats, putt putt and gem mining. They do have a concession stand. They accept cards but there is a 50 cent surcharge. They have a spot where you can buy things you may have forgotten or lost like goggles and towels. There is a small playground area, and lots of pavilions and picnic tables. No tent camping. But the sites have fire rings and there are grill strewn about the park. Restrooms were neat and clean. They do have showers for after swimming. The water is treated daily and fed fresh well water. They have a few different water slides, and offer life jackets free of charge for swimmers to borrow. Parking is also a little chaotic. You can reenter if you get a wrist band from the office. Located right near Amish country you can get lots of fresh picked produce and locally made baked goods.

Great place to stay when visiting the local attractions. But, you don't have to leave the campground to find fun things to do. They have a small water park, paddle boats and water bikes, a mini golf course and a short walking trail. There a variety of sites, some are quite short, others almost a 100 ft long, so be mindful of that when choosing a site. The sites are narrow strips of gravel, so you will, most likely, be stepping out onto grass and they don't allow mats. This wasn't a problem, though. The quiet hours are listed as 10pm to 9am, but they also have a sign posted saying 11pm to 9am. Not really a problem, but misleading. Especially when they have busloads of children arriving as early as 8:30, or earlier. Another issue is they don't (I'm actually not sure they really can) enforce the no alcohol policy. I saw beer bottle and cartons quite a few times. It was never really loud or unruly, but there were a few parties. They have a nice bathhouse, that is shared with their water park, which makes it hard to keep up with. I consistently found piles of sand in the sinks and wet toilet seats. Also, they use solar for hot water, so if you like to shower in the morning, don't expect the hot water, if any, to last. All-in-all, though, I would definitely stay here again. The park is very clean and they have an Amish family that comes in about 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Their baked goods are perfection!
