Buck Creek State Park reviews
Love near by and love to drive this park at dusk to see the wildlife. Never a disappointment. Very serene and something for everyone. Fishing at the marinA, beach area, cabins and camping, boating... more »
Between the cabins and campground, I highly recommend the cabins. They're near a secluded area of the lake, but the much-frequented beach is also easily accessed. The cabins have a/c, a full kitchen..... more »
Amazing place to walk, chill, run, picnic, relax. So many trails and spots to be. Fun little beach, great views of the reservoir and dam, more trails than you explore in a day. Seems like great fun with a bike. Peaceful, lots of birds, walkers, families. Interesting 70s vibe. Clean and working facilities (bathrooms), and was safe and friendly. Definitely going back.
Beautiful day to see the lake views and great weather breezes. Couldn't ask for a nice Summer day to enjoy one of Ohio's many natural resources in State Parks. No fees to enter the park unless you want to camp or stay over in one of the cabins. Great marina area as well! Get out there and enjoy what is left of Summer days!
