Meet Your Hosts

Rhonda Rees

Our goal is to make sure our campers have the best time, every time.

Hi, I'm Rhonda. I've been with Buckeye Lake KOA for over 14 years. I'm passionate about delivering exceptional hospitality and making sure each of our campers has the best time, every time. 

Here are five fun facts about me:

  1. I'm originally from Warsaw, Ohio
  2. I love to ride motorcycles and read (but not at the same time, of course!)
  3. I have purple hair in honor of my teenage granddaughter who has thyroid cancer
  4. I have 4 kids, 8 grandkids, and 3 great grandkids
  5. I jump out of bed each morning excited to work with our extraordinary team

I'd love to meet you in person. Now, what are you waiting for? Come camp!

Oh My, There's Nothing Here!

That doesn't mean this area has to always be empty. When you start reviewing camping options, your history will display here to help compare sites and find the best stay. You will be able to share your stay information with friends or family and save it for a later time if you have a KOA.com Account.
