Camping & Campgrounds: Buckhorn has 42 backpack sites; one of them accessible for people with disabilities. Their backpack campsites are all secluded, with electrical hook-up and most are located near the water hence you get there by foot trail or by boat. Orchard carts, to haul in your camping gear, are available for many of the sites. You will find toilet facilities as well available at these sites, but you will need to transport your supply of drinking water. Three sights (27-29) on the shoreline can accommodate tents or hard-sided and pop-up trailers. Camping is available all year round at these sites: 8, 9, and 16. Campers should get themselves registered at the park office or use the self-registration box in the office parking lot before setting up. 

Picnicking: A rustic shelter was built in 1995 for use by campers in sites 10 through 12 and 25. This shelter is projected for day use only and is equipped with a picnic table and screened windows. Campers may use it to escape the mosquitoes or to cook food out of the rain.

The campgrounds close to the shelter are only a few hundred yards from a parking area and can be reserved. The shelter is very popular with the campers at these sites.

 Swimming/canoeing: The marked 300-foot swim area has an all-sand bottom. No lifeguards are on duty at the beach. You will swim at your own risk and be sure children are supervised at all times. Canoes can be rented at the park office where you can get concession agreements between the Friends of Buckhorn State Park and Country Cruisin' Canoe Rentals provides this.
