Everyone was friendly and well organized--campground and facility was clean and well kept.The camping was pretty close for us--not your fault,just our preference.When we return we will get a deluxe patio site.Our camper is pretty large and this would have been more suitable.

This is a well setup, medium sized campground. The sites are clean spacious. The bathroom & shower facilities are excellent. The activity areas are great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The number & varieties of activities was not as numerous as some other KOA's that I have been too, but the activities they do have are well organized & run.

We have been to Buckeye Lake three times before and always find it very clean and neat. We hope to be back again.

Went for a weekend get a way and everything was perfect!!!

Sites are narrow and very expensive; too expensive for just a gravel site with your neighbors sewer next to your picnic table and door.

We visited your campground to see if it would work for our annual family camping trip in July. Every member of the staff was great and we will be considering this campground for our next trip. Only problem we encountered and it wasn't the campgrounds fault was some campers playing loud music and having loud motorcycles, both were a bit annoying. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Nicest KOA we have stayed at, friendly staff and great amenities.

Nice place, but silly expensive. $6 per visitor including kids is a bit over the top too. My friends brought their new born and had to pay for him. Just excessive nickel and dime for everything makes it a bit less enjoyable.

We have a great time. Hats off to the staff for a great job. Everyone was very friendly and help full.

This year Like all the times I have stayed @ Buckeye Lake KOA was nice. But this year we had a camper who stayed beside us were very loud both Friday and Saturday night. We have no problem with having fun but after 11 PM it needs to be a bit quiter...

Appreciate u carrying OSU game on Sat. Loved the DJ. Pool was clean. Still feel u r priced too high. Do not like paying for whole stay in advance. One night deposit should be enough. Employees were very friendly. Will be back but wish prices would come down a little.

Very nice cabin friendly staff. Need more kitchen items ,a few more mixing bowels,messuring spoons

I like the campground, however there are a lot of trees with dead limbs in them that fall off constantly. During my recent stay, limbs fell and damaged 2 motorhomes that I know of. The owners were told by staff that "that's why you should pay for motorhome insurance." That was not a very nice response from staff. I feel that the campground should clear out the deadwood in the trees for safety.

The camp sites (non buddy sites) are small and fire rings are too close to campers - not too safe. We had a 17 year old that babysits our 10 year old son with us and she was not allowed to watch him on the bouncy pillow. The swimming pool is very dirty - everytime we come here it's always dirty - never clean as compared to other KOAs we've been to.

I don't understand all the negative ratings. Our stay was wonderful--site trash pickup, site firewood delivery, safety patrols. We were well taken care of. Thanks!

Beautiful kampground. Very well kept and super friendly employees. Had a great weekend.

Took my 3 years old grandson camping for the first time. He had a blast. From swimming to the fire truck ride to the DJ dancing and lots more. The people there could not of been any nicer and accomidating. I highly recommend camping here for a family fun weekend.

First time at a KOA and very much enjoyed the experience. We stayed in a Kamping Cabin that accommodated 6 people. Loved how it was constructed out of logs - it was actually nicer than we anticipated when booking. The bathrooms were extremely clean. Lots of fun activities for the kids. We had a great time enjoying good old fashioned fun - away from TVs, computers and video games.
Sep 02, 2014
Nice and clean campground! Everyone was very nice and helpful. Showers are awesome! Will definitely return!
Sep 02, 2014
Friendly people and accommodating. Kids had a good time but we were not use to having such close neighbors. The park is clean and offers a lot of activities.

Very nice and pet friendly.

I have stayed several times at the camp ground this summer and as all ways it has been a good time.
Sep 02, 2014
Very friendly staff, clean and great restrooms, the internet was very poor. Great kid activities

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You are correct about the internet. With the rain, everyone seemed to be on it and with more people, the slower it is. We have the max that cable internet allows.

We would never go back there again .The lots are very small. Not only us but the people on both sides us had dead branches falling on our campers.The pool is very small.I don't know how they can rate this ore than 2 marshmallows.

Only comment refers to the standing water and excessive mosquito population at the back edge of the park. Could benefit from spray control. We would not accept that location in the future.

Stopped for the night on our way west. It was fine, people friendly. My only complaint was that the shower drain was extremely slow. Got to soak my feet in old shower water. Yuk. Forgot to report it. Only two showers were open as they weren't busy so that was fine but one shower room door didn't lock.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

To lock the door, push in on the door handle and turn clockwise. I also cleaned the drain.

The bathrooms are spotless and the setting is nice. The sites are a little too close, but not too bad. However, the mosquito problem will prevent us from staying at the campground in the future.

Very nice enjoyable place to stay only wish we had more time to experience everything
Aug 27, 2014
Friendly staff and nice shaded grounds. I did not like the fee for visitors to my site. Guests who are NOT spending the night have to pay $6 each. This is ridiculous. I could see if someone is spending the night a fee being charged but not for dinner guests.

We stayed at this campground a few years ago passing through on our way to Indiana we were so impressed by it that we felt very comfortable returning the staff is phenomenal going far and above to work with us facing the obstacles in our journey to Michigan Rhonda the manager was is a phenomenal person I love her and I'm glad that she's in our lives we plan to return to Buckeye Lake next summer j
