We enjoyed our stay very much. We stayed in a two room cabin that was clean and very nice. Our site was perfect and made for a very relaxing weekend.

It was terrible. Loud neighbors partying until 3 am. Attempted to call the front desk with no answer. Requested a refund and she refused on account of us not leaving a message. Rhonda, the manager was extremely rude and unapologetic about our experience. I definitely would NOT recommend this KOA.

Most of the staff was friendly, Sammy and Rhonda are the two I remember. But there was one man, who I believe to be an owner/upper management, was extremely rude and treated our group extremely poorly. They advertise as a good bachelor party spot, but they treated us poorly because we were a bachelor party.


We do not advertise a good bachelor spot in any of our advertising. In fact when we found out the reason you were staying, you were informed of quiet hours. We received complaints and even refunded a customer because of it!

What a wonderful campground! Very clean and the grounds and building s well maintained. My only gripe is the screen door in our cabin didn't have an inside handle so We found it extremely hard to close it. Also would have been nice to be a little closer to the bath house. Other than that, awesome

Nice, clean, quiet campground. Best campground I have ever stayed in. Only thing I didn't like was spraying for mosquitos before midnight while we were sitting by camp fire. Should be done later into the night or very early in the morning. Other than that it was a great stay.


We pay the Health Dept to spray every Thurs night to spray.It has to be done at dusk when they are at their peak and before 11 o'clock quiet hours because the sprayer on the truck is noisy. A sign on our front door of our store let campers know about the spraying.

We had a wonderful weekend! Our grandkids visited and had a great time. There were many fun activities to participate in.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin ... I did notice that the curtains needed washed or replaced (very dusty) & lots of broken blinds too. It could use a good overall scrubbing but it was okay for us. We would still recommend it & come again in the future. Enjoyed our stay for sure!

Another great weekend for our family! The campground is so clean. The staff is friendly and goes above and beyond to make your stay amazing!

We have been to this KOA for the third time and stayed in the cabins. They are always in perfect condition and everything is convenient.Especially because we travel from Germany - it is nice that we don't have to worry about Sheets etc.

We were very happy with our Deluxe Kamping Lodge and the supplies that were provided. The campground itself is very well maintained. The staff seem very attentive.

Nice air conditioned camper cabins, great.

They dont mention Buckeye Lake is drained, and dont allow you to get a refund, seems a little inconsiderate given the title of this KOA is Buckeye Lake


The name of the village we are located in is Buckeye Lake, this is where our name comes from. The village also has a Lake about 1/2 mile from us and it is not drained. They are fishing in it everyday!

Another KOA that allows pets in the cabin. Staff was friendly and the place was really nice.

We have been staying here for the last 15 years on the 2nd weekend in August for The Mopar Nationals. Has been a great experience except for the last 3 years. This year our cabin was never cleaned prior to our arrival. Large Dog hair all over and garbage on the floor. Shower rooms 1&2 had clogged drains and we were standing in disgusting filthy water while showering. We checked out a day early.
Aug 15, 2016
Always enjoy staying here for the Mopar Nats. The owners and staff do everything they can to make our stay great.Hope to be staying there for many years to come.

Had a wonderful time. The staff were courteous and cheerful, especially George and the girl at the Gazebo! Just a great family time with activities and extras!

The stay and accomodations were great, had neighbors that came over and complained that we were too noisy?? We in my opinion were not, just enjoying getting together with all our kids, which we do once a year, generally at your place. Next time maybe I'll ask to be put at site with no neighbors?? We were not being loud and out of hand

Great stay. Very family oriented. Less oriented towards young professionals.
Aug 06, 2016
We arrived on a Sat night & they had EXTREMELY loud music playing up by the office for a dance party they were hosting. It was blaring until 10 at night!! The drain in my shower stall was plugged & I had to stand in water while I showered.

3rd KOA with prior stays in Maine and D.C. "Nickle & dime" here and an overt focus on fees. Raise the price of the overall stay and include more! Poor customer service: Asked to switch sites at arrival. Chey/Shay rudely responded "Well, why? What for?" The other kabin was available, they had the same stay duration. The other Kabin folks arrived 4 hours after we did. Unnecessarily rudeness.

We had a great stay with young kids! A lot of variety for children of all ages!

Felt unwelcome by the lady owner. She was very rude and unfriendly. We won't be back.

This is the second time I stayed at this location for my daughters softball games. Very clean, friendly , a lot of activities going on. The only downside is at night a lot of mosquitoes every night had to go in they were so bad . They did spray on Thursday nights but seem like it didnt help. Will definitely come back

We have been going back to this KOA for years now and we really appreciate how accommodating the staff is. The bathrooms are always clean and it's nice there are so many things for the kids to do.
Jul 26, 2016
Stayed here so we could sight see in Columbus but yet relax away from the hub!

We have been having our family reunion at this wonderful KOA for at least the last 8 years! We love it here! Rhonda is always AMAZING with helping us get settled (there's 10 families) and is always so welcoming and kind! The place is always clean and the staff is friendly. We look forward to coming every year...lots of stuff for the kids to do, swimming pool, putt-putt golf, etc. Thanks again!!

We had an amazing stay! The campgrounds were very clean-including the restrooms and showers. We loved the special kid activities that were available. Very friendly and helpful team there. We are looking forward to visiting again next summer!

I stay at KOAs at least twice a month. I was very disappointed with this one. The staff was very rude and curt. There was no hot water at 7 am. They charge for wifi on more than one device.

Can't brown and staff is great but your policy on checking out early and not receiving a refund need to be changed every other establishment whether the hotel motel or campground allow you to check out early and you do not get Charged for the days you were not there

We truly enjoyed staying in your one-room cabin. You have a very nice campground with a friendly staff.

Linen prices were more then I was orgionally told. But what can your do?????
Jul 09, 2016
We visit this KOA a few times a year. The kids love all the activities and as a parent I truly appreciate the effort to monitor safety and incoming visitors. We always have a good time at the Buckeye Lake KOA. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I was disappointing to see discarded cigarette butts, especially in front of our Kabin and around the fire ring.

Our stay there was great
