My wife was wondering if there are any other RVn "Basket Cases" going to the Bee in August? This will be her first and we are thinking of staying at the Buckeye Lake KOA.

This will be my wife's third Bee and mine and the kids' first. We are finishing up a 6 week trip around the country at the Bee before heading for home. Haven't made any reservations yet.

Bob - I wasn't impressed with that KOA & it will be especially bug-y in Aug (unless they've made some changes since last yr). There's a shallow slow-running creek that runs through it & the mosquitos are horrible. Can't be outside for any length of time without getting eatin' alive & they're a problem keeping out of the rig. Although the place is heavily shaded & some have concrete patio pads, spots are mostly in gravel with very little grass. The sites are really close together - some so close your awning extended nearly touches your neighbor's rig.
I would suggest Lazy R in Granville (about 40 minutes from Dresden) or Dillon State Park(less than 30 minutes) as alternative choices. We're partial to Dillon because it's only about 10 minutes from where we store our 5-r.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Lori,

Thanks for the info and recommendation. This confirms something else I read on another report about bug problems at the KOA.

Most of the Bee sessions are being held at the Columbus Convention Center, so distance wise, Lazy R appears to be the same as the KOA. I see you're from the Columbus area. Could you give me an idea of what the driving time is from Lazy R to the Center on weekday mornings?

Thanks,
Bob

Bob-
Depends on traffic. I'd say allow about 45 minutes. Expedia shows 35 minutes, but you never know traffic.

However, I didn't realize the Bee would be at the Convention Ctr - I was thinking you had to be near Dresden. Since it's the CC, I'd suggest these at nearly the same drive time:
Cross Creek Camping Resort
http://www.corp.weyer.pri/onestopshop/
Alum Creek State Park (across the street from Cross Creek)
http://www.ohiodnr.com/parks/parks/alum.htm
Delaware State Park is another option, although we personally haven't stayed there
http://www.ohiodnr.com/parks/parks/delaware.htm

Cross Creek is, IMHO, a top-notch full h/u CG with nice sized lots (many with patio pads). I can e-mail you some photos if you want. Alum Creek SP has lots of large, well secluded sites & a huge beach area. I know Delaware SP was doing lots of upgrades last yr. But as with most OH state parks, there's just electric hookups, you have to port your water. CC & AC are both near a major interstate exit where there's a bunch of places to eat. Delaware is next to a major state route & just a short trip to eatteries.

As was with Lazy R, with traffic, you'd be about 45 min away from the CC from any of the additional GC's I listed.
