Scenic, nice lake, trail, and forest. We watched a doe with her twins. Would have liked staying longer but couldn't. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are back in. There was barely enough room for our 31 foot 5th wheel and tow vehicle. The picnic tables at the sites really need to be updated; ours was in very bad shape. Some sites are very spacious and some are nearby. There are many tent sites and there were a lot of tents there when we stayed. There is only one bath house/restroom facility for each side of the campground. We were parked near the back of the first area and it was quite a walk to the restrooms, especially when you need one quickly. They could definitely use additional restroom facilities. There is a playground, but there isn't much there. The camp hosts didn't seem to do anything like some of the other state parks we've used. There is a decent camp store, but kind of expensive. We got 3 ice cream bars and it was $8.50. A camper's beach in the campground is a nice touch. We stayed here during the week when we get a 50% Golden Buckeye (senior) discount weekdays and 10% weekends. They also give military discounts. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park 1 night on our way west. The park was easy to find and was away from the highway. We stayed during the week so that it was not busy. There is a lake for boating and swimming. The site was a back in but there was adequate room for parking a tow vehicle. We would stay here again. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Huge width between sites, all sites required blind side back in. Site numbers and loops not well marked, some sites partial shade, some in the open and some full shade. Bath houses require some needed maintenance as did dump station. Potable water sources had strong flow but were for community use. Lots of jet ski and boats, tents,etc. Large marina and several beaches, discus course and small camp store. One playground that needed updating. Many large cabins available.Lots of wildlife...especially deer. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

For those things you forgot, a Walmart is 3 miles away. Some GPS led people in circles and to wrong side of campground. Using 1976 Buck Creek Lane worked for our rv specific Garmin. Pretty convenient off of I70.

We stayed one night & this was a welcome break from the places by the interstate where you hear cars all night. A beautiful state park well cared for & plenty of green & space betwen sites. Lots of hiking & nice quiet roads for biking. There is a lake and marina and a campers beach. Regular season starts May 1 & until then it is walk up only. You self register after you pick pit your site. They give a 50%pa discount Mon thru Thurs. Ohio veterens stay free. A really nice park where I would have gladly stayed longer but we are on our way home! I checked out laundry and bathroom and they were basic and not too bad, though it did not look like they were being cleaned daily. Potable water at the dump station on the way in...sites are electric only. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Maybe because it is so close to our house, but I see nothing extraordinary about this park. It's a nice park and is kept well manicured; the sites are average for us anyway; not real close to each other but not what we would consider large or particularity isolated. The pad surfaces are blacktop and fairly level. The roads leading into the campground are blacktop and in good condition. Some sites are shaded some are not. Some have lake-views some do not. One loop does not have electric; all others have electric but no water or sewer. Like I said, its a nice campground and you will not be disappointed. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Boating and two beaches, a small camper beach and a larger general public beach that you would want to drive to. There is a nice bike trail that starts a the general public beach that connects to the Northern part of the Little Miami Bike Trail north of Springfield to Ceder Bog and Urbana

Nice large sites, and very secluded and quiet. Aside from a few speeding cars it was a very nice area to ride the bicycles and hike. There is a small campers beach that you can ride to. We will return again! We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This state park is located a few miles east of Springfield. The park shows some need of maintenance. Several of the power pedestals were missing their covers. One of two washers in the laundry was broken. The showers could use some attention mainly paint. Sites are blacktop with a concrete parking barrier at the rear. Our site was way out of level side to side. Not many sites appear to be level. Sunday through Wednesday 50% a discount can be had with a "Golden Buckeye" card or membership in Passport America. We paid the full nightly rate, since it was Thursday. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

The roads and sites are paved with a large grass area in between. Our 35 foot RV just fit the length of the site. We had to park the car on the grass next to the RV. Power and cell (AT&T) were good. OK for a short stay with no sewer or water. We would camp here again. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight in a fifth wheel while traveling. Nice clean park. Bathhouse was clean, but fairly long walk from site. Feral cats and raccoon frequented picnic tables. Great flat areas to ride bikes. For those staying several nights, looks like great water activities. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Some sites really are close to the lake. The place is kept beautifully. There are hosts, but not sure what they do. The office was not open at all during the 2 days that we stayed. You are on your own, but not bad as you may pay with cash, check, or credit card. It's a huge park with an abundance of grass. Ohio parks are members of Passport America during the week, so it is a real bargain for 30 amp power for 1/2 of $26. Ohio advertises that there is a 35 foot limit, but when we called we were told at 38 feet there would be no problem. Since there were plenty of sites open, no problem, but it might be on a busy weekend. We would definitely return to this park. We camped at Buck Creek State Park in a Motorhome.
