People were very nice, but price is too high to begin with and include only two people, then there is an extra charge for a child. For 2 adults & 1 child, we paid $74. Sites are very narrow. Nice dog park.

Customer paid $67.00 and children get free activities. Could have saved more with a Value Kard

Very Nice and well kept campground. Very nice restroom/shower at the front of the campground. Very friendly and helpful staff. The price is a bit higher than any other KOA I have stayed at.

We brought a huge group of close to 70 people and Rhonda and the team did a great job helping with all the details and accommodating us! The Cabins are very cute and clean. Thank you again for helping to make our stay a success. We will definitely look to come back again for future events.

we loved this camp ground! This was the 4th time we stayed there and if we every get back on the east coast, we will be coming back for another visit. the last time we were, was right after a huge storm and some of camp was flooded. The staff was out the all night making sure that the camper were OK and even into the morning helping relocate some of the campers as the water came closer.Great Place

Called in late for a spot got there and the check in was quick. they took me to my spot!

Great stay. Used a cabin and enjoyed the facilities. Nice staff. Didn't rank it higher only because we spent most of time at zoo, so didn't really spend a lot of time at site. A bit pricey, as well.

Our deluxe cabin was great! We did not like the $4 charge per device, per day to use WIFI. Its free at other KOAs we've stayed at. We did like that the kids got 15 minutes on the pedal carts and 1 game of golf for free. Owner was great and staff was very friendly. It's a really nice campground.

Sites are very narrow. Campfire rings are located immediately next to your vehicle and your neighbor's campfire ring is right next to your trailer. No privacy. When we called in advance to find out how far to Columbus Zoo, we were told 30 minutes away. Actually it is an hour away in heavy traffic. They advertise a lake but never saw anything but houses. The lake was not an attraction mentioned.

Buckeye lake Koa is an excellent place to camp. . We come every year Clean. nice landscaping friendly staff. Manager Rhonda very helpful and always there to help in any way.

Last minute since we couldn't make it to original destination. It was clean and organized. Only beef is with the wifi limited to one device, extra charge for the kids, and the odd locks on the shower doors. Otherwise nice.

We have 3 goldens and love the bark park. This visit was to take our oldest to Ohio State for testing. Very stressful time. Rhonda was so very kind. She is also an animal lover. We have been to this Koa a number of times. It's well cared for, flowers are gorgeous. Very nice staff.

We were passing through - and found the campsite to be one of the best; level sites, good amenities, great staff. But, for two of us, no children, and a short stay, $60+ was a bit much.

Clean, organized, friendly campground. Easy on and off I-70

This Koa is great as long is it does not rain. It rained a ton so alot of the campground was underwater.
Jun 23, 2015
Friendly helpful staff. Clean,quiet and lots of things to do.

absolutely the best staff and support personel in all of koa land. sunday breakfast on site a great feature. dispite inclimate weather (see Noah) our stay was super. will definately recommend.
Jun 22, 2015
Thursday we arrived. Was yelled at about kids wristbands. Which was fine. Then you go ahead and spray and not let us know you are doing it. Have to set rules for both sides. Husband wanted to take a shower was asking where to park and girls behind counter thought he was a trucker and said down the road. Very rude place all around.
Jun 22, 2015
Wow, the staff here is extremely nice and helpful. This was our first time camping with our travel trailer and the staff was very helpful to us, providing guidance on how to connect and work out the first-timer kinks. Nice facilities, very clean bathrooms and showers. Will stay here on the way back also.

This campground offers a variety of activities for the family. It is clean and friendly. Unfortunately we had a very rainy weekend and didn't get to enjoy all the planned activities.
Jun 22, 2015
Very nice stay
Jun 21, 2015
people very friendly, campsites a little small
Jun 20, 2015
The workers were very nice I did have some trouble with the owner regarding the way he speaks to people concerning rules we did have a conversation I let him know of my frustration and he continued to be rude and unapologetic. Other than that nice facility
Jun 20, 2015
The camp sites are beautiful. Plenty of shade to keep you cool. Every body was very nice and friendly. Will be back
Jun 20, 2015
Pulled in on a rainy night and knew we would not be able to use any of the camps amenities. Was not offered any discount for our stay. Will not return here.

Sorry about the rainy weather, wish we could control it but no one can. Your site had 50 amp, water, cable tv, wifi, sewer. It all worked. Your check in time was around 5pm. Sorry that you did not like our campground because of rain.

Friendly staff

We had poor weather but for one day it was fine.

Very clean. The workers were so nice anything we needed they were there to provide. I especially liked the greeting at the gate and the escort to our site. Very nice

Thanks for your nice comment!

Very nice campground stayed in 23ft travel trailer with slide out had plenty of room. Great place!
Jun 16, 2015
We liked our site, but we didn't like the fact that three of the four showers were closed so the campground employees would only have to clean one of them. Our departure was delayed because the three of us had to shower one after the other instead of simultaneously. And an elderly man had to wait for the three of us. Not great.
Jun 16, 2015
I thought the whole staff was very professional. The campground was very clean the sites were roomy. The bathrooms were well kept, supplies available and very clean. I especially liked the breakfast served by the staff on the weekend not all KOA's do that. The special activities were nice there was a car show lunch and fun stuff to do all weekend. Great job! I will visit there again!
Jun 16, 2015
The site that our 2 room camping cabin was on was super cute--complete with a hanging basket of flowers. The bathrooms were extremely clean and smelled fresh.

Extra touches very much noticed(flowers everywhere) swings at pullthrough sites. Restrooms extremely clean and stocked. Best campground ive ever been in
Jun 15, 2015
Too expensive for the camp not to be close to anything truly spectacular. I needed a place to stay for the night so I stayed. I was quoted around $80 for a one room cabin without a bathroom. I settled for the expensive $50 tent site since I just needed a place to stay and needed relief from the road. Bring the prices down to by $20 or $30 like the other KOA sites and it may rate better.
Jun 15, 2015
We had a great experience at this campground. Lots of great amenities and super nice staff!
Jun 15, 2015
Just surprised that alot of the older employees including the owner just isnt that friendly and outgoing. Wasnt given the kids wristbands when we checked in n later they made me feel like i was purposely trying to get over on them somehow. When i explained to the owner that i wasnt given them at check in he didnt appoligize for getting short with me. Just told me that the kids need them.
Jun 15, 2015
This campground was clean, safe and very well managed. There were always employees visible to answer question and assist you in any way. The employees were all very friendly too. Oh, the Saturday morning breakfast was awesome!
Jun 15, 2015
It was wonderful!
Jun 15, 2015
The pricing is not family friendly concerning children, the nightly rate we paid 61.00 for full hook up and these were not the deluxe sites they also have only include pricing for 2 adults, so all kids are charged an additional 6.00 each per night. Just to expensive especially for size of lots that are extremely small
Jun 15, 2015
Great staff! Beautiful grounds! We will return
Jun 14, 2015
We really enjoyed ourselves the staff very nice and everything so clean we want to try and come back thank u again Kathey& clarence
