Campground Reviews

Aug 05, 2013
I think the campground itself is great but I think the price of firewood is way overpriced and I think for those staying kids should not have to continue to pay to do extra activities as much as it cost as it is.

My wife and I stay at the buckeye Lake KOA whenever we want to take our grandchildren camping.This is the best KOA in Ohio for children. Pretty awesome for adults as well. Extremely clean bathrooms and everything is managed and run efficiently with emphasis on comfort. We just love this campground.

Good for kids and adults , excellent camp staff. Site 181 needs dressing of gravel as it is down to thin very large gravel and muddy. We plan to return to this koa, thank you

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. When we wanted an earlier check in time they did everything they could to let us Check in early. The facilities were very clean. It was a great visit. We will be back.

Been on the road 2 months (12 + states); this was the most expensive nightly rate I paid.

Fifteen years ago I stayed here and was certain it could not have aged well. Wrong! It is fresh, clean, heavily-treed and more beautiful.

Beautiful bathrooms. Half the sites were flooded. Resented being charged $6 per kid fee for use of ammenities that we could not use because we checked in at night in the pouring rain and left early the next morning.

We stayed in 6 different KOAs in 2 months this summer, and Buckeye Lake is a very nice KOA. We stayed Fri-Sun. Well-kept KOA, friendly staff, lots of amenities that families with kids will enjoy. Pull-through was fairly level, wide, and nice sized w/tow vehicle. Plenty of shade, wide roads, easy in/out KOA, close to interstate. Only caveat is need to spray for poison ivy/kill veg.around tree base

Our stay was fun. Lots of activities, however, at $12 per 15 min. rental for pedal carts it was too costly for family w/ kids to enjoy. One time free 15 min for child, but some of that time is wasted adjusting equipment & waiting on roadside for Rvs/cars going by. Bring your own bikes. Also had fee for putt-putt. Was free in Milton KOA. Super Soaker Saturday was Great! Staff & sites very nice.

We are new to the RV world and this was our first time in a KOA facility and booked it so we could see what it was like. It's a nice facility but not twice as nice at the price suggests. Also the $6 per guest for a one hour visit will keep us away. Not even time for having someone in for dinner. Hope you don't complain $25 for your extra bag on a plane!

Everyone was very friendly. The place was very clean.

Wonderful! Professional & friendly staff. Clean & well kept sites in a nice, resort-type area. We'll plan on staying longer next time!

Our Girl Scout Troop so appreciated this KOA and how they were able to accomodate the changes to our reservation due to the extreme heat. They were so friendly and helpful, we had a wonderful time!

The camp ground is nice but extremely crowded. No privacy at all. Not the "outdoors" feel I was expecting or wanting. Bathrooms were very clean. Too expensive for frequent trips.

We enjoyed our stay. I would suggest setting up a recycling program. It may help with the amount of garbage. I know it would have with our group. Thanks!

Potholed roads & poor "sites" with bad drainage, too close together, and bad grass. Difficult to exit site. HATE the fire truck siren Sat/Sun. and music too loud/late Sat. night.
Jul 30, 2013
I must say the bath rooms were the cleanest around,but the sites were to small,and they are over priced.we was charged extra $6 a head because we wanted to camp with are kids.not for people with a family's

The campground was nicely shaded. The bathrooms smelled like mildew but seemed pretty clean. We were disappointed with the air pillow, mini-golf, etc. closing before our check out time.

Rhonda and Alyce took great care of our family (as usual)! We go every year for our reunion and always have a great time. See you guys next year!!!!

We're a very large group with all kinds of cookers, smokers, etc. This KOA is very accommodating and patient with us. That's what keeps us going back there year after year!
Jul 29, 2013
Very clean facilities with lots of activities for the kids to do. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We typically have a large group of people and the buckeye lake KOA served our purposes very nicely. A big Thank You goes out to Rhonda who manages our reservations year after year.
Jul 29, 2013
staff were very accommodating when we missed our checkout day we were able to remain in our original site.There is plenty of activity and fun events for everyone

This KOA was nice. Wish the bathhouse/restrooms where nicer and we didn't have to walk around the bridge through the tent area. Perhaps consider putting a foot bridge over the creek. The Brookville KOA is state of the art!
Jul 29, 2013
Took primitive camping site and site had lot of insects and spiders. Also surface was not plain.
Jul 29, 2013
We have never stayed at any KOA that has had this much fun for our grandkids, and I have been camping a long time. I want to Thank the owners Mike and Shirley for all the effort they put into keeping all the campers happy. I want to thank Dan for helping fix my T V even tho the granddaughters had to wash and wax his camper.{just kidding}. Thanks again from the OSMAN's

Our first time camping as a family. We stayed in the Deluxe Cabin. We had a great time! Our stay was a long weekend on the campgrounds Super Soaker Weekend. It was so much fun! The cabin was much cleaner than I thought it would be. It was a great size and had more amenities than expected. The staff was AMAZING! Took very good care of us and provided so much to do. LOVED IT!

This is the second time this year we have stayed with you and you have a wonderful campground and we will be back. Thank you.
Jul 29, 2013
We loved our stay and will definitely come back.
Jul 29, 2013
Very well run campground. We did not like how the hook ups were stationed. We had to face our neighbors in a very tight camping spot. It was a little awkward.
Jul 29, 2013
Expensive. Did not like that they sprayed for Mosquitos even though there was a notice on the counter. I worried about my dog sniffing the ground when she was doing her business. Just didn't seem right.
Jul 29, 2013
This was our second stay this summer. Great activities for kids. Booked another stay. Great staff!
Jul 29, 2013
A little pricey but overall a nice stay. This park is the reason we only camp with KOA. clean and safe!
