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!

Beautiful campground. We stayed 1 night as we were traveling home but will make plans to return for few days this year

We had a nice site but when we were escorted we couldn't keep up and rather than stopping when she drove through the site she stopped just long enough to make sure we had made it to the site.

Upon arriving the lady at the desk seemed confused(Debbie). Plan on your kids being branded with wristbands for the length of your stay. One of the staff was yelling at our kids because they didn't have the wristbands on yet. We had only just pulled in to our site. The sites are not level and this KOA is way over priced for the sites. The sites are not maintained. This was their Grand Reopening?

Stayed at this campsite both going east and returning west two weeks later. One issue with cold water in the main shower house at the main building. Had to go to a second set of showers. But things do happen.

The only problem we have when staying at this KOA is leaving when it is time to go. We have always loved this KOA. The sites are beautiful, the KOA people are fantastic. Our dog loves their doggie playground! It would be nice if we lived closer for a weekend trip!!!

There are nice things about this KOA in Buckeye Lake..they have a very nice pool and the DELUXE sites are VERY nice, and it very shady.with lots of large trees. BUT the price is way to expensive. We were in a STANDARD site which was all gravel [the whole site] We had about 5 feet in front of our camper, your neighbors utilities are right in your face. For $60 a nite I expect amuch nicer site..

Had a great time. Glad we were able to use the site during the off season.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The grounds are very well maintained and the restrooms are spotless. There are so many fun activities for the children and adults we just want to keep coming back again and again. Keep up the good work Mike, Shirley and the whole KOA team!
