Cabin Reviews

Jul 29, 2014
Being a long time member, this last stay atBuckeye Lake,ohio just did us in. We made reservations on July 15th. For two nights, I spoke to Katelyn on Phone and we selected Cabin 4 due to Cabin 5 being not available. Checked in & was told #4 was assigned to someone else.switched by manager-why make reservations? Got mgr out off bed,by then close to 10pm-told her #1 was a shed/shack. Mold inside.

Everything was great except for there was a ton of Mosquitos even in the daylight hours. They did spray one night but a little late. I do know that it has been an extremely wet summer. Other than that, perfect!

What I liked - the bathrooms had recently been renovated and were really nice (little surprised that they were locked with a code but maybe because a local bar was right outside the site?). What disappointed me? cabins VERY close together, and no fire pits.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This obviously was not Buckeye Lake KOA, we do not have any restrooms with codes for the bathrooms. All of our Cabins and Deluxe Cabins have fire pits and charcoal grills.

it was wonderful, very friendly and helpful staff.The only problem for us were the mosquito population.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your comments, Our County Health Department checks the creek and the entire campground weekly and has never found the creek area to be a problem. They also spray each Thursday night unless it is raining. We do everything they suggest to lessen the threat of the Mosquitoes.

Nice campground, very clean. We stayed in a one room cabin. Mattresses are plastic and a little hard, we brought foam toppers which helped. We were planning to boat and fish on Buckeye Lake. The lake is terrible full of algae. We ended up driving to Alum creek everyday.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the inconvenience of having to drive, i am sure you know there is nothing we can do about Buckeye Lake, and it should be back to normal soon. We must use this kind of mattress so it can be cleaned.

We where very impressed with everything. We loved the people ,the food and the cabin to name a few. We highly recommend and stay there anytime.

We really enjoy this KOA. There is lots to do and it is very clean. However, we feel like we are nickel and dimed for every little thing and it is very off-putting.

All family members really enjoyed our stay.

We really like this KOA while traveling to Indianapolis. Thinking about staying longer sometime in the future.

Honestly, the facilities were nice and the cabin we stayed in was clean. However, I felt that I was being watched - like we were going to do something wrong. There was a ton of rules for this KOA - unlike others - and it was just a bit much.

Had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground was clean and very pretty.

Friendly staff, super clean restrooms, lots of activities for kids & quiet park at night. We travel a lot all over the country, & this is one of the best parks where we have stayed.

We stayed in a 2 room cabin and had a great time. Everything was clean and bug-free when we arrived, even the bathrooms. We would definitely stay again.
Jul 12, 2014
All was great except the jumping pillow was available only for a limited time.

The culvert needs to be cleaned out to allow the standing water in the creek to drain. Otherwise the park was very well kept.

Had a great time as we always do. Grandkids had a blast, I will be posting pics from our stay on the website and my face book page for all to see.. and we will see you next July!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Be prepared for Mosquitos

The staff members here were top notch and made us feel really welcome! There was so much to do, we didn't get to all the activities available. The grounds were clean and in great condition. The attentiveness and security the staff provided meant a lot to us. It's very family friendly. The well stocked store and good cooking were appreciated.

Very nice but very pricey! To charge for every little thing is a bit ridiculous!
Jun 02, 2014
We started with this KOA back in 2005. Our recent visit reminded us of what and were our expectation are based great hosts security to hold down over packing of other visitors. They show how much they care about having you as a guest.

The campground itself was exceptionally nice looking and well looked after. There was a complication with the age limit, which wasn't stated on the site at the time of reservation, and I was one year underage, yet they were kind enough to admit me, given I had already paid a deposit. Great people.

For the one night, we had a good experience, except the bathrooms & showers were closed during the night. We weren't aware of this. The staff were very helpful.

It is a nice campground and very clean. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. I do find that the prices of everything are way too high, and they really need to address the issue of sites flooding when it rains. Dirt or gravel needs placed to raise the ground in several areas. We could not use our fire pit for our entire stay because it remained under 4 inches of water.

We had a GREAT time. The kids had a blast with the kids DJ.

Great cabins, fun activities and quiet at night for peaceful sleeping.

Does this KOA cost more than any I have ever stayed at? Yes, but for good reason and well worth it. Especially if you have children. This KOA is exceptionally clean and has activities galore for children. Fire truck rides, bounce balloon, playground, pedal cars, basket ball court, pool, giant chess, mini golf, and a more that I cannot remember.

Everything from check in to check out was great the staff was knowlegable of the area which was of great help also. The location is great.

Great place! Made our fishing trip an adventure. My daughter loved the little 2 room Kabin we stayed in and asked when we can go back again. Looking forward to staying again in the near future. Hooray for camping season!!

We had a wonderful time. My grandsons absolutely loved the jumping pillow, gem mining, the playground, and playing in the sandbox. The campground is beautiful and we had fun staying in our cabin. Love, love, love the porch swing. It's so relaxing!
