I enjoyed my stay at this campground, very friendly and helpful staff. I loved camping under the full grown trees. The campground is quiet and safe. I will be back again.

Campground was nice, but lots of mosquitos from the creek.
Aug 10, 2014
Tight sites, need more gravel so the rain don't make ditches and puddles at your site. The stream running through the campsites had debris & was overgrown with weeds causing it to create mosquitos. This should not be called a KOA HOLIDAY.

Thank you!!!!!

Ok place to stay. For the very expensive price, I would expect a wifi that worked better and the bugs are really bad due to the stale water in the canal. Staff was very friendly, but the sites are really close together and are companion sites. Our neighbor was all set up when we got in and had ALL the space used! We had to walk through their camping chairs just to enter and exit our trailer.

Staff was very friendly. Sites are tight and fire rings are really close to your camper so we chose the buddy site this time for a little more room.

The campground is always clean and the entire staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Perfect stay!

Sites too crowded. To sit outside We had to sit next to our neighbors sewer hose.
Aug 05, 2014
Sites weren't level. Mosquito infested due to a stagnant drainage ditch. Otherwise, friendly hosts, with good - size sites.

Site's 134&135 are a little close for bigger campers and the mosquitoes were terrible But camp ground was well groomed, guarded, excellent water pressure great TV and electrical hook up set up awesome activities and play ground and pool area staff was great so thank you and see you next time.

This was our second camping experience at the Buckeye Lake KOA and it is an awesome campground. The owners, Mike and Shirley and Rhonda the manager are very friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome and you get they feeling they really appreciate you camping with them. We will definitely be camping there again.

Unacceptable wifi policy. Punishing all with only one device rule because of a few who abuse the system. Also should not tell us we have to tell you before we complain to KOA surveys. Staff were great and otherwise a great stay.
Aug 04, 2014
Everyone was very helpful! The facilities were very clean and in working order. Would definitely stay again.
Aug 04, 2014
Very well taken care of. My only complaint is the "over control." Signing waivers for kids, being "escorted" to our campsite, and kids have to be supervised everywhere. I understand the need to keep an eye on things and kids. But this was a bit overboard. I've stayed at several KOA's and have never been this monitored.

We love the buckeye lake KOA ! It is a little more costly than other campgrounds but it is totally worth it because of all the "extras" available. My girls love the pool, fire truck, and jumping pillow! The bathroom/shower facilities are nicely finished and extra clean compared to others. Everyone there is friendly. We love that the park is kept quiet and secure for our kids to play!

Even thought we were only there one night, we did enjoy our visit. Hosts were very nice and friendly and very helpful. Campground was very neat and clean. TV and wifi service were great. Enjoyable visit.

Nice place. Nice people running the place. Just wish that it would be 10-15 miles closer to Columbus.
Aug 03, 2014
Very clean facilities, friendly and accommodating staff, and very pet and family friendly atmosphere!
Aug 03, 2014
Great time,good people.
Aug 03, 2014
We loved the friendly, attentive staff, the fun things for kids to do, the cleanliness of everything, and the option to purchase dinner and breakfast if needed. We had a great time, great camping experience! Thank you!

We stopped at this KOA on our way home(Canada) from Florida. After having no internet, we were looking forward to send our family an email to let them know we were safe but the internet was not working properly which was really frustrating. Besides that, great service.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I wish you would have let us know about the internet problem. Your site was just across the road from the hotspot and should have worked well.

I arrived the day before the day before for my extended 4th of July stay, Mother Nature had just thoroughly given the park a wash down. I was escorted to my site, I had a water front location at no extra charge. The tent area picnic tables were still being washed as they were under water. All was good the next morning things were normal. Great stay great park and staff. Bob

Thanks Bob, words like yours are why we do it!

We had a wonderful stay and will definitely return. Our only issues were with the cable and wifi which worked sporadically. However, the staff was friendly and helpful and facilities well kept. Good job, Buckeye Lake KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I hope you asked our staff for help with the cable, usually we can help straighten it out. The WIFI depends on the # of people on the system and is mostly for e-mails.

Clean and comfortable KOA. The staff was one of the best I have encountered in over 25 years of camping.

Please let campers with children know the miniature golf is not free but there is a cost.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

All children 17 and under get 1 round of mini golf free, 15 minutes on our pedal carts and free jumping pillow.
Aug 01, 2014
They need to do something about the mosquitos. You couldn't seat outside without being eat up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The health department checks the grounds every Monday and sprays every Thursday night.

Nice campground...friendly people..rules for golf cart driver does not make sense....A 20 year old licensed driver cannot drive a golf cart in the camp ground without a 21 year old in the passenger seat.That one confused me!
Jul 31, 2014
Nice level campsites which are easy to pull into and out of. We just stayed one night this visit on our way home, but have stayed here many times before. We will be back

The campground facitlites were ok - my biggest issue with this campground was being told that my 15 and 17 year old kids had to wear wrist bands around the campground. The other issue was being told that I would recieve this survey and they wanted me to give them a good rating. If you want a good rating have nice campground facitlites and treat people right, then you earn your good rating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As the owner, I use these bands for many things, from lost children to which children need a parent at the pool and for the free bike rentals and mini golf. In explaining about the survey, we only ask if you can't give us a 5/10 please talk to the owner or manager so we may try to fix the problem.

Stayed here once before in a horrendous rainstorm so wanted to see what it was like in better weather. Could not have been more pleased. Nice place, nice people.
Jul 30, 2014
Very welcoming. Given milk for the kids when there was none in the camp store! The place is very beautiful and full of activities for the kids. Very well kept and intelligently designed. One of the very best.
Jul 30, 2014
we were very disappointed that the pool was not open, and when we complained they seemed to not care at all

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

During your stay we had a Chlorine pump fail which caused too much chlorine to be added to the pool. We are sorry for the inconvenience. At the time, we weren't exactly sure what was going on and exactly when the pool could safely reopen. The pump was replaced and the pool is great now.
