"Martha Warner My parents and aunt and uncle brought us up there to have fun. My favorite ride was the Whip.. I rode that so many times. I.miss all the rides.”
Linda Kerr Waldrop "In 1956 my brother in law Leon Waldrop operated the WHIP. He let my husband (Larry Waldrop) check under seats for loose change and he got to have many free rides."
Linda Davis "Yes, the first ride my best friend and I ever went on in our pre-teen days. Her parents, Bill & Eileen Foyer, came out the the BLYC every weekend, and we came along. The ride out in the back of their station wagon was always a treat. We always add a few dollars to go to the park. One time we worked up enough courage to go to the fortune teller, what a great time we always had. Vic & Carol Doritan are members now, but Vic jumped off the pier out front, when I dropped my glasses in the water, he didn't find them😂..but what great memories and fun we had in the early 60's.
Michele Colson Well kiddos ... I'm so old they used to have nickel day at the amusement park ... Best day ever . Peace
Skip Persinger Life is good at Buckeye Lake... but I miss the Buckeye Lake Park, weekend nights taking my boat to the park. Ride the rides and have some fries w/vinegar.
Leaving Hunts Landing and watching the Blue Goose sign reflect in the water as I drive my boat to Thornport.
Following the J.B. Taylor paddle boat watching the swells break over my bow.
Miss Audo & Austin at the Skating rink every weekend....Miss pulling my boat into the 51 Club for a coke. Miss my talks with old man Hunt at the Blue Goose. Can't forget Pete & Flo at Cranberry....

Penny Goble Loved the Blue Goose. Always my favorite place to hang with family and friends. I have many photos to dig out.
Fred McCanless Loved their steak and eggs
Barb Reilly The pool at BLPark was where my aunt taught me to swim. Grandparents and uncle had cottages there for years. Loved fishing off the dock. Swimming boating. Lots of baseball games between cousins and catching lightning bugs after dark.
Grew up at Buckeye Lake at Custers Point, with my grandparents.(I think that was the name of the place) They had a trailer and small building on their lots and their names were Ray and Dean Williams. Good memories of those times. Nancy Melvin It was Delongs Landing where my grandparents had their home away from home. They lived in Lancaster.
Amazing time on Buckeye Lake with friends. Can't wait to go back again. - Diane
Attentive staff, well-maintained lots, and easily accessible to the lake, and from nearby cities! I love it here! - Carly
