First Come or Reserve
Location: North shore of Buck Lake 130kms southwest of Edmonton Alberta. Note, 6kms of gravel road access and not well marked.
Description: Buck Lake Provincial Park campground contains 27 campsites nicely suited for both RV’s and tents. Amenities include water, fire pits, dry toilets, picnic tables, refuse containers, boat launch and fish cleaning station.
Most of the campsites are located on open grass with a few choice sites next to the irrigation canal that flows out of the lake which is 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 and a maximum depth of 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 flowing out of Buck Lake are well maintained along with several posts to tie up a boat. Bird watching here can be very good. The lake and canal attract several different bird species. Night skies here rank #4-5 on the Bortle Scale.
