My prerequisite is a table, fire pit, and lights on the utility pole this had all of these. Only one device for wi-if or you have to pay extra. Which to me is not fair since none of the other ones do that.

There was significant standing water when it rained, made walking the dogs unpleasant. We checked in after hours, and the person who received us did not tell us that we needed to stop in the next day to settle the bill. It would be nice to have a checkbox for charge the remainder of the bill to the credit card used for deposit so that it would not be necessary to stop in the next day.

Yes Mother Nature has decided to give us more than normal rain this spring in which makes things wet. The paperwork you received when you came in after hours, attached to the very front does explain if you are here more than 1 night you need to check into the office for payment as well as car tags.

front desk folks June & Rhonda were friendly, professional & welcoming.. Cindy was not! Thanks Mike for not only guiding me to my space but looking at the table that had broken loose in my rig. For some reason most of the restrooms & showers were locked so I NEVER showered. This park is RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED!!!!! BEYOND pretentious! I will bypass it next time I travel through the area.

Reservation was made online at which time your 1 night stay was paid for. Once here you renewed for another night never mentioning the price being to much. Upon registering we advised you of the shower/restroom being open. Friday even more restrooms and showers were opened to prepare for the weekend.

One night. Pull through motor home towing a car. Friendly and helpful. Older campground.

We stayed at Buckeye Lake for 3 nights. We had just purchased our coach and traveled to the area for driving lessons. The managers/owners were kind enough to let us stay at the site before it was officially opened, which was greatly appreciated. Needless to say, it was very peaceful and quiet. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We will definitely try to make reservations again.

The facility is very nice. However, we were just stopping through for one night on a road trip and were surprised at the total cost when we received our receipt. It was a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids, and we were charged $80, $68 for the site $6 for each child. The previous night we stayed at a Ohio State Park for $24 total. We won’t be back to KOA.

We appreciate that you stayed with us. You are also correct in we are not a State Park. We have many more amenities, full hook up sites and very clean restrooms. Customer arrived after hours, a phone call or visiting our website would have given our prices prior to arrival. State Parks are funded by the state and we are privately owned.

When we went to plug in we stepped in dog poop. We were put next to a long term site who kept their dog on a chain. Overnight stays should be put closer to bathrooms not have to walk threw muck to get to the bathroom.

Buckeye Lake everyone is very friend and helpful. Will help you with any problems. Lots to do. Very clean and safe for families.

We were only there one night and got there around dinner time. The people were very accommodating. We needed propane, and they came and got our tanks, took them, filled them and brought them back to us. The grounds seemed to be really nice, we had a chance to walk the dog around. Unfortunately, it was the last night of the season, so we appreciate them being so accommodating!

Best KOA we stay anywhere in the country! Great owners, staff and great facilities!

What a beautiful place. Staff was awesome felt like I owned my own private campground considering I was the only one there was a really beautiful place it’s too bad they’re not open Through the winter. Only complaint I had was no water . I do understand because of winters it was absolutely gorgeous and the Host she was very accommodating. How about a discount next time there’s no water .

Very nice place to stay. We stopped back on the way home to dump my septic and I think the $17 dump fee was a little much. Other than that not a bad place.
Nov 06, 2017
Nice campground and met our travel needs. Wide and long pull through with full hookup and 50 amp service. Will return to Buckeye Lake when traveling in that area! office staff courteous and helpful! We enjoyed our visit!

Stayed here during the Lost Lands festival with my wife. While the campground was a little on the pricy side, both of us were very happy with our stay. The campsite area was clean, peaceful, pretty and the staff was very freindly. The main bathrooms were clean with lots of hot water. Would recomend this campsite to anyone going to Legend Valley or Buckeye Kake.

Great place and great people!

Love the campground and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They've closed for the winter, but we will definitely be there next spring.

We stayed 3 nights, not much going on, last weekend of the season. To us kind of ecpensive but we stayed inside mostly, rainy & cold. Not many people.

We made this a quick weekend to attend the Ohio State/Penn State football game in Columbus, so we didn't spend much time at the campground. That was in a way a good thing. The spot was level and adequate, but our camper awning faced the site next to us. That would have been ideal, if we were camping together. Unless requested, we prefer more privacy when camping not as part of larger group.

Great campground. Very comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mike and Shirley are great owners. We look forward to returning next season.
Oct 31, 2017
Hosts were exceptional! We will return next season.

We are regular visitors to Buckeye Lake, usually in the warmer months. I was not happy paying 72 dollars per night for late fall, no activities camping. Our future visits to Buckeye Lake will be at another campground.

We've stayed here many times. Love the place, love the friendly staff. We couldn't ask for more.

The sites are very close. During the week the park was almost empty but they kept putting the few that came in right beside us.

We were on our way back home and just needed a spot for the night. The campground was very nice and wished we could have stayed longer. Everyone was extremely friendly.

Very wonderful stay. Halloween weekend was a blast. All the staff did a great job.
Oct 27, 2017
Easy in/out Warm welcome Clean level site Utilities well placed What's not to love?
Oct 26, 2017
We really like this campground,we've stayed several times and will continue to come back for sure!This was our first time staying for Halloween here,my only complaint is the costume contest was not until hours after trick or treat when some little ones are already in bed and older ones had already taken off their costumes.If it were right after Trick or Treat, I feel that would work better for all
