The cabin was cramped and smelled badly. And three days after checkout we are still waiting on the cabin key refund three days after checkout


The key deposit was refunded on the day you customer checked out. It depends on your bank on how long it takes them to post it.

Family friendly and great staff. Loved the one room cabin we stayed in.

They might have a water table problem? The bathroom was clean, but smelled like sewage and the water pressure was low. Sites were kind of packed onto one another and really close/impersonal. Mosquitoes were out of control. There were a lot of activities for young kids though and the girls at the service counter were very friendly.

Was impressed with how clean and well kept the campground was. The bathroom and shower areas very clean and nicely kept. We stayed in a cabin and liked how cute they were set up.

It was perfect for a group stay! Their cabins were clean and the staff was friendly.


so why the bad score?

I enjoyed my stay here. My only complaint was the lack of hot water in the showers in the main building. The campground was not full so this should not have been an issue. Otherwise it was wonderful!

while the park was very nice. rain and flooding in the made for a crappy weekend. All weekend activities were cancelled due to low camper turnout at the campground. Nothing was ever communicated from the staff that activities would be cancelled. My kids were very disappointed that the movie and cookout were cancelled on Friday night. and more


We had flooding conditions, everything was underwater, the campers here were in dryest area and were offered refund if they wanted to leave and advised all activities were suspended due to unsafe conditions.The campground was closed Friday and Saturday due to unexpected flooding. Most were understanding of current conditions.

Overall nice campground and will stay again. I was a little disappointed when I had a roof leak in my cabin and the owner came to inspect with no remorse. I would have expected an apology for the inconvenience especially since some of my belongings were wet from the leak. I was offered the opportunity to change cabins, however I didn't desire to move all my stuff during a rain storm.


We had over 6" of rain. Owner when made aware of the problem went to this customer and asked what he could do. Camper said he was fine and everything was ok. In fact is currently staying again and requested the same cabin.

This is my favorite campground so far with 14 days on the road. Great people, clean! Facilities. Paper towels and Fox News in the bathrooms were greatly appreciated. The paper towels are very important, not replaced by the hand dryers!!!!! Cabins were clean, could only be improved with TVs in cabins. A+ all the way!!!

Facilities were clean. I was a bit disappointed that some of the activities shut down during the week at certain times. It doesn't say that on the website so it gives you a false impression of what is offered. Also had to pay for 3 nights even though i could only stay 2. Haven't received my deposit back either. Probably will go to dayton koa next time.

I have a son and family that lives in Indiana. We met half way at Buckeye KOA. Had an exceptionally good time. The owners and staff were wonderful. We are hoping to stay again soon but with more family. Thanks for a great time.

My kids and I had so much fun staying in the deluxe cabin with a loft that we are planning our next stay for this fall. All of the employees were very kind and eager to help us. There was so much for the kids to do that I never heard I am board. KOA Buckeye Lake has so many fun activitys for all ages that I would recommend it to anyone who wants a wounderful camping experience!

Great place, let me check in early, very clean. Great for kids.

This is one of the BEST KOA Kampgrounds that we have stayed in (and we have stayed in KOA's in several states)! Would absolutely stay again.


Thank you for the kind words.

could not get an itemized receipt for my stay, at check out. This day and age I figured that was a doable request. Maybe just a training issue I would assume you system can accommodate this. Otherwise the stay was great.

Just stayed there one night but it was clean, spacious and looked like a lot of fun.

Memorial Day weekend was lots of fun. The grandkids and we had a wonderful time. Thank you.

The best campground yet. Clean friendly but of all the rest is the fact that Mike and Shirley and manager Rhonda are so friendly and are about making your stay the best. The owners are so hands on with everything makes it even better because it almost gives the sense that you feel like family. 35 plus years I've been coming and by far the best one my family has experienced. Definitely coming back

It was a nice clean place,the staff was nice and helpful. There was a DJ on Saturday night and the kids just love going up to the pavilion to dance, It would have been nice to have something on one of the other nights too being it a holiday weekend you have to stay 3 nights so having some sort of entertainment 2 of those night would have been great. No complaints just that suggestion.


We did have entertainment 2 out of the 3 nights. Movie on Friday night and DJ on Saturday night. Firetruck rides on Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

One of the cleanest camp grounds I've ever been to. Rhonda does a great job. Breakfast was yummy! The bees were busy drilling holes in our cabin, and they were a nuisance anytime you went in & out the door there were 10 or more, and wood dust all over the porch
May 15, 2017
Very family friendly with lots of activities for the children to do. We had a great weekend when we stayed in a cabin. Thank you KOA!

Little upset bc I had a donation item which you didn't want to take when we checked in on Friday. Well Saturday came we were gone most of the day and forgot to give you the item in the morning. I would have taken the item while the giver remembers bc as you know people forget. Maybe next year!

No heat in cabin. Checked out day early manager didn't even offer to refund the unused day. Cabin and patio was not swept out prior to our arrival. First time I've ever been disappointed with Koa.

Very nice camp ground ! We asked if we could up grade from a tent site to a cabin and they took care of it with no problem . Rest rooms were super clean !
