Awesome!!! Never wanted to leave.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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.


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.


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.


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.
