Campground Reviews

Aug 29, 2015
Very nice people and well kept campground. Sites are a little small and should be able to pick your own site. Regardless I would still recommend as it was well kept, friendly and had lots to offer.

A bit pricey. You have to pay for extras like a second wifi code and visitors. Still a nice KOA.
Aug 26, 2015
Beautiful place and friendly people!

Clean, excellent security, outstanding shower houses. One of the nicest KOA Campgrounds we have had the pleasure to stay. Even if it was only over-night.

Helpful staff, nice bark park. Just an overnight stay. A good pizza restaurant in walking distance since we didn't unhook.

Deluxe cabin was wonderful. The staff was very friendly - one of the nicest koa's I've been to. The following improvements could be made: Free available wifi, no per device fee, (silly). Per person fee policy needs to be disclosed when booking. Sunday church services are nice but brought in non paying customers. Most were fine, but some were walking through sites, throwing stones and yelling.

Very Nice Campground. Very Friendly staff. They Probably the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen at a campground. The camp store is well stocked, the sites are nicely done, I could stay there for weeks. Breakfast was very good as well. I do not have any piece of criticism to offer. Truly a nice place.

Very clean, peaceful, everyone was nice, look forward to going back soon!

They had good young kid activities. My 4 & 1 year old loved the sand pit, playground and pool. My 4 year old loved the jump pillow. Only reason I rated it 4 stars is because you had to pay $4 per person for the mini golf. With small kids it's pointless to pay extra for that. Nicer bathrooms up by the office so we walked up there to shower. Overall good stay.

At Buckeye Lake KOA kids 3 to 17 get a free game of golf, 15 min free ride on the pedal carts and jumping pillow free for the entire stay. 18 year old and up pay $4.00 for a game of golf and anyone pays $6.00 for 30 min on the pedal carts.

Buckeye Lake, Ohio KOA is a beautiful, well kept campground with lots to see and do. Their friendly, caring staff went out of their to help us when our truck was damaged in an accident. They made what would have been a horrible situation much easier for us. If you are in that area, please give them a try. It will be worth your while.

The location to family is the only reason for this place for us, otherwise we wouldn't stay. It is way too high priced $52.00 a night even with a KOA card.

Really enjoyed our stay! Level sites, fun activities, great service!
Aug 21, 2015
Campground was very clean. Employees were all so nice. Great things for the kids to do! Enjoyed our stay.

REALLY NICE! Easily accessible from I70. Big Rig friendly with wide, gravel roads and long, spacious sites. Friendly staff and numerous amenities: a beautiful pool, mini golf, game room, jumping pad, carts and outdoor checkers and chess. We camped here in our 43 foot fifth wheel.

We loved the campground everything was so very clean and nice all the staff were very helpful and easy to talk AAA++++
Aug 18, 2015
our stay was just over night while traveling. One thing I did not like was the unit next to us was facing us due to the way the utilities were placed (no privacy. Also, picnic tables were placed together for both sites. This KOA was the highest priced of any we've stayed at. Most likly because of the lake.

Great place for a family reunion. Kids & grandkids love this KOA. Always clean,friendly staff, lots of activities for everyone & well patrolled at night. Breakfast at the cafe is delicious & a great value.
Aug 17, 2015
We love this place. It is well taken care of and maintained. Very professionaly operated.
Aug 17, 2015
Kids had a blast.
Aug 17, 2015
This koa was very clean and safe. The site that were were given was very close to and facing a camp site right next to us. There seemed to be many other full hookup sites empty but we were placed in one right next to someone else. If you do plan to camp here you will probably have to specify which campsite you want to avoid being sandwiched in. Definitely not worth the $65 we paid.
Aug 15, 2015
Always a pleasure staying here! First class all the way!
Aug 14, 2015
It was very nice. Second time there. One suggestion would be to have couple more blankets & a mop. Had sick child in middle of night. A mop would have helped.
Aug 14, 2015
GREAT PLACE TO STAY. VERY FRIENDLY. THEY YOU FEEL VERY WELCOME THE STAFF WILL GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU IN ANYWAY. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK NEXT YEAR FOR THE 36TH MOPAR NATS

Nice campground. Easy drive from I-70. Lots of restaurants nearby, as is Buckeye Lake. Deluxe cabin was well-maintained, although A/C unit was very loud -- very minor prob. Friendly, accommodating staff. Would stay here again with family.

One of the nicest KOA's I've stayed in. Clean and the personnel were all great.
Aug 12, 2015
Excellent campground, clean, level lots, nice patio, swing, many amenities for grandkids. We stayed in a motor home but the cabins and tent areas looked exceptional as well.

We enjoyed our stay at Buckeye Lake KOA. Check in was fast, campground and its facilities were clean and well maintained, staff was very friendly and helpful. My main complaint is the discrimination on part of our dog solely because of his breed (part pit-bull? without considering his actual temperament. Because of the park's policy of not allowing aggressive breeds he could not come.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All campground insurance companies do not allow us to accept certain breeds of dogs. If we did not go by the ins co policy and we had a dog bite by one of the unaccepted breeds our insurance would be canceled.

We come every year for the Mopar Nationals and this year we loved that you had the super cruise on sight. We were able to see cars and listen to music without leaving, which is nice when you have kids.
Aug 11, 2015
We stayed here to visit family in Columbus. We probably would not have spent that much if we could have found another campground close. Not good place to ride bikes. We could not take advantage of any of the activities since we were with family.
Aug 11, 2015
Very nice, like the buddy site set up, great idea. Too many mosquitos and bees.
Aug 11, 2015
We loved the campground, it was clean and friendly. This was our first time at a KOA. The only downside we felt, we paid $85 and $90 a night, but felt we were dinged for all of the extras and felt they should have been included, the WIFI, the pancake breakfast, the riding toys for the kids, putt putt etc. I don't mind pay so much for the spot, but if we do, those things should be included.

so why the bad score?

I love staying in cabins rather than a hotel room. I hope that you keep your rates low in the future so that those of us on a budget can enjoy affordable travel. Great job!!
Aug 09, 2015
We just stayed one night but felt so comfortable talking to Shirley the owner. We would like to go back and enjoy more time there.

My only thot was your restroom cleaners need to attack spider webs in showers daily. I had at least 12 above and below
