Home away from home
I happened upon this campground several years ago and instantly knew it was what our family was looking for. I was a grandmother by then and wanted my grandkids to experience the same wholesome fun my kids had enjoyed growing up. We have been seasonals there now going on 7 years! My kids stay most weekends and consider the staff and other campers like family. I'm so happy my children's children can appreciate the simple things like walking or riding their bikes around the secluded traffic free park., hunt for frogs and turtles, , swim in the lake and end the day around a campfire. They have no interest in video games or watching tv. There so always something happening there. Music, dances, holiday parties, potlucks and games on the beach! You owe it to yourselves to check it out one time...I'm sure you will return🤗 Claudia Setty and family

Gorgeous site
I came here last month while visiting with some family members, and I had such a great time. It's a clean campground right by the water, and the trees around the sites are gorgeous. We stayed in a cabin, and it was really nice; the bed was a bit thin, so if you like more support, bring an extra spread. We did a ton of fishing, and after the first day, we realized that fishing in the early morning isn't just better for the catch, but makes it such a great experience. We saw the sunrise while on the lake three days in a row and it was amazing. We caught a ton of bass, crappie, blue gill, perch, catfish and we even saw a ton of turtles. This is by far one of our favorite spots. Will return!

Review of Buck Lake Ranch
Older campground. Sites by the lake are close together. Lots of history of music events and festivals. There was a wedding in one building and a talent show in another venue. It was a lot of fun. I would stay there again.

Great wedding venue...
Came for 4 days to the hippie fest. It was a wonderful experience. Everyone there was friendly and peaceful. The music was fantastic and the sunsets spectacular.

Cute western feel
We will definitely be back! This is a great campground. The owners were so nice and helpful!! In fact, everyone in the campground was nice and friendly! It's got a nice, smaller lake and is set a cute western town. We loved it! Would definitely recommend this to everyone!

New tradition
Took our granddaughters on their first camping trip to Buck Lake Ranch & we had a great time. The RV site was spacious & the staff was very accommodating. It may become a yearly tradition.

Great experience!
This is our family reunion place forever we hope! It is a place where you have so much fun, music festivals, karaoke, history, a fabulous amphitheater with so many histories..all the country western stars have started their careers there back in the 1940,s and have their names on the theater. It’s so fun looking at the hundreds of stars names.. Dolly Parton, Elvis, Johnny Cash and everyone who is anyone!!! The staff is the best and sure the place is dated but that’s the great experience of it!! The Hamilton,s give it a thumbs up for sure !! Thank you Ron (new owner) and all the staff there, you fo a great job to make it a very friendly experience. I recommend it to all and it’s getting updated but I hope they don’t lose to much of the history of it. Good luck Buck Lake Ranch 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
