My state at Buckeye Lake/Columbus East, OH was very nice. The location of the campsite made it nice to visit nearby events and attractions such as Buckeye Winery for tasting and the zoo.

The stay in the cabin was comfortable and the restrooms were exceptional. However the price was higher than expected and I was very disappointed to have to pay an extra 4.00 for a second internet connection to allow use of my cell phone and that of my grandson considering the cost of the rental. I doubt that I would spend the $ at this site again.

A great place to stay for a night or many nights. Well kept, very friendly and plenty to do.

Nice place, feels small, but really quiet.

During the night of our stay, we had 5 inches of rain. Needless to say, the campground was flooded. The staff was very proactive in helping us to get out of our site and on the road. We appreciate their prompt action and assistance.

Nice campground with good security. I would return again. This is the ONLY highly rated KOA that I have been too that charges visitors after 5 PM. The charge should be done away with !! Glad to see that they now recycle. Staff outside office need to work on customer friendliness. Acted as though they did not trust their customers.

This is a great place for campers. especially if you have kids. Lots to do for them. The staff is awesome. And the bathrooms and showers are real clean. The internet connection can use some improvement.

Very family oriented. Excellent facilities. Excellent activities.

Very peaceful, shady park with creek running through it. Yellow-shirted camp hosts were busy leading campers to their site and helping in the office.

A little pricey compared to other comparable campgrounds

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The rates are in direct proportion to expenses of the campground, repairs and maintenance, salaries, taxes and any other expense due to location not compared to other properties.

Overall, stay was awesome; however, I think the cost for a visitor is way too high!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your great comment, the only reason for the Visitor charge is that the pool and all amenities are open and available to all visitors. We will refund the visitor fee for visitors that stay less than 1 hour

Extremely clean campground with plentiful & clean showers. Lots of fun, well monitored activities for families. Just be aware that the 11pm quiet time is not always enforced. When we were there the last time a large group started singing at 11:00 & the singing didn't stop until 12:30. Then, they laughed & talked loudly until 2 am. Thankfully, this wasn't an issue on our other visits to this KOA.

As always, super clean and most of the staff members are great. But, I gotta tell you, Mike is so rude! Seriously almost let him ruin our trip over an argument in the arcade. Luckily, I didn't, but I'm not sure we will be back.

Friendly, courteous staff. Always a pleasure to stay at Buckeye Lake KOA. We did notice an above average amount of ticks this trip though.

Our kids loved the jumping pillow!

loved the camp and the people at the camp - made our stay enjoyable; loved that they gave our grandson 15 free minutes on the carts - he LOVED that!

We always have a great time at Buckeye Lake KOA. We like the fact that the Pizza Cottage is next door and that we can walk there from the campground after driving all day. How about adding an exit/entrance, for walkers, that is closer to the Pizza Cottage.

We had our 10 year old grandson and our 8 year old granddaughter with us. We loved the pool, playground, shuffle board, bouncy, pedal cars and the creek! The many rest rooms were clean, the staff friendly. This is a FIRST RATE place! We'll be back!

The facilities were very nice and clean. Our Cabin was great. However the pool and playground are have a lot of noise from traffic. Both are too close to the road.

My grand kids love this KOA! They always have plenty to keep them busy and entertained! As an adult this makes my stay more enjoyable too. Nice lots, bathrooms and showers that you don't dread having to use! Love the security and friendly workers too! 😊

Lodge is beautiful and nicely stocked. The campground is a little slow during the week. It'd be nice for them to have weekday activities for the kids. Not everyone stays there on the weekends. Also, this is the "strictest" campground I've ever been to. What I mean by that is the security people are a constant presence, the amenities that they do have are severely restricted (short open times)

It rained and rained before we got there and our site was very wet. The next day we asked if we could move and the owners were very accommodating. They apologized and said that our site should have been for overnighters and since we were staying a week, they readily agreed to our move. Then they UPGRADED our site at no extra cost due to their error and our inconvenience. WOW

We have stayed at several KOAs. This is the best. The Astoria Wa. site was almost as good. Several of the others have old bathrooms and were not as clean. The Buckeye Lake site is one of the best. Will recommend this site to anyone. Also they cook a great breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays!

Wonderful setting. Clean restrooms and showers. Very quiet.

Rhonda went out of her way to make our stay the best we could ask for.

The sites are a little tight. The fire ring is very cose to the camper. And the neighbors septic line is too close to us. I also wish there were children's activities during the week.

Lots of good activities for us and our grandson. Water pressure in showers was not the greatest and the showers by the office had only cold water one morning.

The people running this KOA were friendly and enjoyable to talk to. Activities were very nice. Campsites were very small, barely enough room to park a car w/camper. Very expensive compared to other campgrounds we've been to. We stayed in a beautiful campground in Hilton Head, SC recently with a very large site for much less.

My wife and family have been to the Buckeye Lake KOA several times. We took our three year old grandson for his first camping trip and he was thrilled! The bouncy pillow and pool were lots of fun, but his highlight of the weekend were the rides on the big red fire truck. He slept for 9 and a 1/2 hours each night!
