Location:  East shore of Buck Lake 120kms southwest of Edmonton Alberta.

Description: Calhoun Bay campground contains 50 campsites nicely suited for both RV's and tents. Amenities include water, fire pits, dry toilets, picnic tables, refuse containers, boat launch, fish cleaning station, community kitchen and firewood available for sale. Most of the campsites are surrounded by aspen and spruce tress that provide good privacy with a few choice sites located on the canal that flows into the lake, close enough to keep a boat 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 approximately 9.3kms long with a maximum width of 6.3kms, maximum depth is 12.2ms. Buck Lake holds walleye, northern pike, yellow perch and lake whitefish. You'll need a fishing license to try your luck. The grounds along the canal leading into Buck Lake are well maintained and there are several slips for boat moorage. Bird watching here can be very good, the lake and canal attract several different bird species. Calhoun Bay is the nicer of the two provincial campgrounds located on Buck Lake. As of 2015 the creek flowing into the lake has dried up and the parks department has closed the boat launch. Boaters should check with Alberta Parks before heading out. Night skies here rank #4-5 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
