This is a great place to go hiking or have a picnic. There isn't much playground equipment for the kids, if that is what you are looking for. Nice campground for tent campers, and they do have electric spots for RVs, but most sites do not have electric and there are only pit toilets.

The wife and I stopped for a few hours on the way back from a trip. We had never been here but noticed it was a hot birding site. We had a pleasant lunch in the lot overlooking the lake. Saw lots of birds on a short walk by the beach. We saw a ton of birds by the spillway pond. My wife added three new birds to her life list. Very beautiful park with lots of activity in the winter.

We enjoy going and hiking, or just looking at the water.
We have seen lots of deer. It so nice that this park is so close
for us to visit.

We have become very fond of Ohio's state parks. We try to schedule long weekends for the relaxing atmosphere and clean, comfortable cabins.

Buck Creek was wonderful. Our cabin was great, it was everything we expected. Ohio really does a great job. The trails were clean, and well maintained and the lake is fantastic.

But, the help was indifferent, even rude. We have been to several state parks, even some in other states, and never been treated with such contempt. Normally we ask about good places to eat, and the best places to see wildlife. Sometimes we don't even have to ask they volunteer. But, she didn't even tell us how to find our cabin, offer us a map, or even a have fun.

We might go back, the park was great, but I'm not sure it is enough to overcome the counter people, when there are parks within an easy drive.
