the campsites are located on open grass
with a few choice sites next to the irrigation canal that flows out of the lake, close enough to keep
tied up. Buck Lake is excellent for power boating, water skiing, canoeing,
kayaking, wind surfing and both summer and winter ice fishing. The lake is

6.3kms, maximum depth is
12.2ms. Buck Lake holds walleye,

be very good, the lake and canal attract several different bird species.
