I just love this place, the view the calmness. Family centered place. My church has worship every year. Bring your chair and a book or fishing pole. The parade of boats is exciting too.

it is amazing to visit a place like Buckhorn Lake. I was with my husband and we enjoyed riding through a boat in the lake and watched beautiful houses around the lake.

The view of the Buckhorn Lake from the state resort is just wow. It’s a beautiful lake sitting between highlands. The view can take you to a whole new world. This is a hidden treasure.
