2 Reviews of Buckhorn Dam Rec Area - Buckhorn Lake
Small campground with access to hiking trails and fishing.

Campground has lots of amenities. Restroom, showers. electric, and water. Playground for children, and a shelter with several picnic tables.

First to Review
Simple site outside Daniel Boone National Forest

This area is the best place to see Elk in the east! This is a small campground near Buckhorn Lake. It is close to the water for boating and swimming, there is a playground, but for much else you will need to travel outside the area.  There is a resort park called Buckhorn Lake nearby, which is a state facility with cabin camping (and a lodge), that is much more built up. Your GPS may be confused.

Yay: We liked the simplicity of the site, it is well taken care of.

Nay: No complaints but you need to bring your own boat.

Surprise: The ELK (not at the campground though).
