Our deluxe cabin had electrical issues and we were moved to an RV. We weren't informed until the morning of and we had already purchased show tickets and made dinner reservations near by. Too late to cancel now. The RV wasn't clean. There was no hot water, we used the public showers, the refrigerator didn't work and stunk, pool was closed our last day. Friendly staff, Rhonda was great.

Nice place! Stayed in one of the one room cabins. Very clean! Bathrooms and laundry facilities were also clean and convenient. Thanks for a good stay!

We stayed in a cabin. The AC in the bedroom did not work. We only had hot water the first day. They could not fix any of it due to an electrical problem and it was the weekend. When we complained to the manager upon checkout, all we got was a $100 voucher for another stay.

Very nice place lot of things for the kids to do, but I think the kids could have done some of these things without the parents & one guy that was not the most friendly or people person. Everyone else was great & friendly.

Nice enough campground. Some of the staff were super nice. However, the owners and manager were hard to take. They were rude to us, and observed being rude to others. Especially kids. I understand that it was a busy holiday weekend but there is never a reason to behave the way they did toward folks. It was disappointing. We love koa, but won't be back to this one.

We rented a cabin while attending a music festival in Columbus. The cabin was clean and suited our needs, and the showers and restrooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly, I would definitely stay here again. The only disappointment was the breakfast food.

First time camping solo. Loved it! The staff were friendly and helpful, and the cabins were very pleasant for an overnight stay.

The restrooms are always immaculate! I was a little disappointed that the grass was not cut. Our feet never dried out the whole weekend. The jumping pillow was so filthy, I didn't even want my kids on it.

Great people and a wonderful place to stay. Was in a small cabin that was kept very clean and well maintained. The Campground itself was also very clean with great amenities.

We stayed in a two room Kamping Kabin the 2nd to last weekend of the season. Even though it rained off and on Saturday, our family and dog had a wonderfully fun time. The kids had a blast on the jumping pillow and pedal cars as well as the giant chess and checkers. The bath house was the cleanest KOA bath house I've ever seen!

I was overcharged. Had 1 pet and told them on booking, but was charged for 2 in the cabin. The cabin was very nice and clean. Close to our friends that were camping in camper and tents. Bathrooms were very clean. I appreciate the security, but I hate much the staffers drive around on golf carts and watch you. I swear someone went by every 30 minutes. Prices seem high compared to other cabins.

Great stay in a Deluxe Cabin. First time at the buckeye lake KOA. It was very clear that the owners and staff take pride in a clean, warm and inviting camprground. two thumbs up.

It was a great trip. My family enjoyed our stay. Do wish the pool was opened a few extra wks.

In the past, I've always been very pleased with this campground, however this time, I'm a little disappointed.It's normally packed on the value appreciation weekends, and that was not the case this time. Once again, they did not show the Buckeye game. I really don't understand why this is so hard. We had to leave and go to a local bar to watch it. Also, very few planned activities.


The game is on our channel 2 if it is not on a local channel, this weekend it was on ABC which is channel 3. Anytime we are asked we open the breakfast room for special shows if you are in a cabin with no cable tv, sorry for the misunderstanding, just ask at the front desk next time for your options

We ended up not staying. This is about our fifth stay at this campground and the last ever. The owner husband made us feel unwelcome. They also charge for children to play on their playground. I think that's excessive.


All we wanted to know is where you were having your wedding that was not previously scheduled, when it would occur, and if anyone was coming that were visitors. No, we do not charge for kids to play on the playground.

This was a great place to stay. Cabin was nice, restrooms very nice and clean. staff was great. The only thing was the parking for check in and out was a little confusing. Would stay here again.

The staff there are friendly and courteous. They will cater to any of your needs. We love staying here.

Deluxe cabin was wonderful. The staff was very friendly - one of the nicest koa's I've been to. The following improvements could be made: Free available wifi, no per device fee, (silly). Per person fee policy needs to be disclosed when booking. Sunday church services are nice but brought in non paying customers. Most were fine, but some were walking through sites, throwing stones and yelling.

Very clean, peaceful, everyone was nice, look forward to going back soon!

Great place for a family reunion. Kids & grandkids love this KOA. Always clean,friendly staff, lots of activities for everyone & well patrolled at night. Breakfast at the cafe is delicious & a great value.

It was very nice. Second time there. One suggestion would be to have couple more blankets & a mop. Had sick child in middle of night. A mop would have helped.

Nice campground. Easy drive from I-70. Lots of restaurants nearby, as is Buckeye Lake. Deluxe cabin was well-maintained, although A/C unit was very loud -- very minor prob. Friendly, accommodating staff. Would stay here again with family.

We come every year for the Mopar Nationals and this year we loved that you had the super cruise on sight. We were able to see cars and listen to music without leaving, which is nice when you have kids.

now that the noisy people are not in cabin 4 it was a great weekend.

Facility was well kept and the staff was great and helpful as usual.

I love staying in cabins rather than a hotel room. I hope that you keep your rates low in the future so that those of us on a budget can enjoy affordable travel. Great job!!

One of the cleanest and best KOA we have ever stayed at, and we have camped KOA's across the USA!

The kids loved the chocolate slip and slide!

This was our 1st time there and we will definitely be coming back. Very clean, staff was so nice and there was so much for the entire family to do. We stayed in a smaller cabin and it was perfect, the entire weekend was so fun. We highly recommend this KOA.

I booked the deluxe cabin for me and my four grandchildren. There was so much to do and so much fun that we couldn't fit it all in. It was a great stay and we look forward to next year.

Cabin rate seemed a little high but they were well kept and had new flooring. The staff took my money to renew my Kampcard but then did not follow through with ensuring it was actually renewed.

Usually the showers have pretty good water pressure but this year they were poor, with very little hot water

We come here yearly for our reunion campout and always have a wonderful time! Rhonda is AMAZING! There was a reservation blip, but she made things right. There is always so much for the kids to do and the facilities are always so clean. Thanks for another great year!
