I don't know that you can find a cleaner more friendly KOA! Mike, Shirley and staff go above and beyond to make our stays very enjoyable!

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.

I have camped with my extended family at Koa's around the country 4 times, twice in N.Carolina and once in Harper's Ferry (a great KOA by the way) and those experiences were so positive that I have always looked for KOA campsites exclusively. This most recent stay at Buckeyelake KOA, however, was disappointing and I will probably look for another campsite (not KOA) the next time I come to Columbus

This is a very nice KOA. I stay every year and come back because it is well maintained, good activities and a good variety of camping options.

Great that trailer site was next to the cabin. Credit card for key deposit created a problem.
Aug 05, 2014
The park like setting and flowers were very nice. The person I dealt with in the office was "borderline" rude. I was not impressed with the unfriendliness of the staff and will not return to this KOA.
Aug 03, 2014
Owners and Staff were friendly as always. Great breakfasts at the pavilion!

The Kamping Kabin was as clean and nice as any of the many we have stayed in and the location suited us as we were visiting friends that live a few miles from your KOA. Did not like your $6. charge if we wanted to show them the cabin. They are former campers that we met at a campground many years ago and would possibly try camping again via Kabin as they no longer have their 5th wheel.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our $6 visitor fee includes 1 hour free, just return to the office on your way out and we will refund your visitor fee. Also this fee gives you access to the entire campground all day, including the pool.

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.

We stay here every year for our family campout...and we always have a BALL! Rhonda and Alyce are ALWAYS so helpful and kind to all of us and we love coming here....so much for the kids to do and everyone loves the pool. Thanks for another great stay. See you next year!!

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.
Jul 22, 2014
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.
Jul 21, 2014
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.
Jul 20, 2014
All family members really enjoyed our stay.
Jul 16, 2014
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.
Jul 14, 2014
Had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground was clean and very pretty.
Jul 14, 2014
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.
