Campground Reviews

Nov 16, 2019
I have stayed at this location twice now and enjoyed both times. this past stay was the last Haunt Fest weekend and first one i ever attended. the only issue i would have liked to see was a better timeline of events listed as we had ( one of the best, if not the best from what i seen displays ) but was not able to keep the smoke machine going constantly and didn't know when the judging took place.

We had a great time. We were there for a Halloween weekend. The only thing I think should be different is the judging of the pumpkins I think they should be judged by age groups! I loved all the activities you had for the kids! can’t wait to come back next year! Very friendly staff!

We stayed the weekend before thanksgiving and it rained heavy from early Saturday morning till Sunday morning. My kids still had plenty to do and enjoyed their weekend at the KAO with all of the Halloween festivities.

Awesome as always

Kids enjoyed the Halloween party

The cable was fuzzy, and the sites face each other (I really dislike that) and are tight to get in or out of. Other than that it was a good place to stay.

We have been coming here for years. We have stayed at the tent sites and also rented the kabins. We love the staff and how friendly they are. We always have a great time here.

This was our first time staying at a KOA. I never realized how much there was for the kids to do so i'm sure we will be back another time. Unfortunately the cost will only have us coming back maybe once a year. It's rather strange to me that the cost is 3 times a state park PLUS you charge extra for everything from riding a bike to jumping on an air thing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Children get unlimited time on the jumping pillow and they also get free 15 minutes on the bikes and a free game of golf.

We arrived on Wednesday 10/23/2019 and stayed 4 nights. My son is 8 years old. Buckeye Lake KOA informed me they only blow up the jump pillow starting on Friday and the weekend. We only saw the pillow blown up on Saturday evening while it was raining! The playground equipment and putt putt was in dire need of repairs. No activity schedule for the entire week. Will never return here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The jumping pillow was open Friday from 4 until dark, Saturday 10am until the rain came. A full activity schedule for the weekend was available in the office.

Had thumping music playing from about 6 PM until 9 PM that was sponsored by the campground. We were trying to rest up to leave early in the morning for the next leg of our trip and were unable to because of the loud music. When I called the office the girl said sorry they were playing until 9 PM at the pavilion and there was nothing they could do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our Monster Ball Weekend. DJ turned music down. Music stopped at 9pm, quiet hours are from 11pm-8am.

To start we didn’t know that this location considers Halloween Campouts to be holidays, therefore requiring 2 weeks notice to cancel. We were in a buddy site, which isn’t a bad idea, but they were way too close to each other. Our awnings were almost touching. Insult to injury trick or treating wasn’t like it was in the past. We kept coming back because it was in the loop and safer. Not this

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer says they have stayed in the past & Halloween as always been a Holiday with special cancellation policy. Trick or Treat change was by request and everyone liked it. The campground is safe and Adults were with the children as well.

We arrived after 9pm, Website said office closing was 9, we started calling around 8 to inform them , no answer.. we HAD to take wood from a locked cage as it was 45degrees , using a wrench to loosen bracket, no damage, relocked it, and informed security ! They were nice..took note of bundles and we would pay in the morning...SITE MANAGER CALLED SHERIFF IN THE MORNING OVER A FEW BUNDLES OF WOOD!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had security from 8pm-midnight. Guest arrived at 9:30, removed firewood from a locked shed because he couldn't wait on security to get it for him and saw nothing wrong entering a locked area. Will notify Sheriff anytime someone breaks into a locked area. Guest stayed in a camper and could have also called the number on the answering machine for after hour help. Wanted firewood-not needed

Great park, and fantastic sites. they were level, had a concrete patio with glider, table and 4 chairs, firepit and a BBQ grill. We have been full time camping since December 2018 and this is the best park we have stayed at in all of our travels. Great people in the office, easy check in and they escorted us to our site.

Sites are very close together

Nice pull through. Staff great. Enjoyed the overnight. Campsites were really crammed in together and would hate to stay there when it was full!!! Liked that the place was clean and well kept up

New management is absolutely wonderful! They are kind, fun and willing to help. We only got to camp twice this year and chose this Buckeye Lake KOA both times. Can't wait until next season for many more!

It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t wonderful. The Halloween activities were great but they should try to get more than one tractor running. Overall it wasn’t bad but I’ve been to better KOA’s
Oct 23, 2019
Everyone were very helpful. Nice Family atmosphere. Events were well planed. I would stay here again.
Oct 23, 2019
Couldn’t ask for any better. It was great!

We have friends who live in the area and we stay at the park when visiting them. As the fall activities happen over the weekend and we did not arrive until Monday, the park was very quiet, which we loved. We had an enjoyable stay.

we enjoyed our stay.

My family visits Buckeye Lake KOA 2 - 3 times a year. This is our favorite KOA, my kids always have a good time, the KOA is always nice clean and everyone is friendly. Never disappointed when we stay there.

We enjoyed the Fall Festival activities for our kids - ages 8 and 10. Staff in the office was very personable. We liked how our site was very level. The dog park was a nice addition too!

Price seems high for camping. However there was alot of activities to do. The weekend we stayed, there was activities for the kids. Pumpkin painting ( for a very small fee, inc. Pumpkin, paint, brushes and clean up.) And same for a canvas bag. Beggars night was that night as well. Kiddy dance that night w/ DJ and a haunted hay ride. Lots of other activities as well. Camp ground is clean and frein

Had a great time this weekend at the Monster Ball weekend #2. Would love if there was an adults only Halloween weekend for 2020 because we'd definitely be there!! Cant wait till next year. thanks for the hospitality and being so helpful.

Camped the weekend of Oct. 11 and 12th, one of the Halloween weekends. We rally enjoyed it. Loved the way the trick or treaters came to the campers. The dogs were so cute in their costumes too. Looking forward to next year..

Friendly staff. Good accommodations. We don't have kids but seems extremely kid friendly with lots for them to do. We have 3 dogs. They have a small and big dog park. We enjoyed halloween weekend and heard theres other activities they do there. Little pricey but would recommend to others.
