Family campsites

There are 68 family campsites that can accommodate tents or trailers. Each family site has a picnic table and campfire ring. Camping is available year round at sites 8, 9 and 16. Family sites A1-A8 are located in the group camp.

The new 60 unit campground is now open. Sites 47-102 are reservable. 103-105 are first come/first served. The campground is off 19th Ave, north off Launch A within the park. Access is through the main entrance by the park office. The new campground features drive-in campsites, pull through sites, 7 standard electric sites, 1 accessible electric site, a shower/toilet building and a dump station near the park office. A .53 mile crushed rock path winds through the woods and near the water from the campground towards the day use area for walking or biking. Sites 26-29 have been relocated and are tent only, walk-in shore sites with a central pit toilet and carts available.

Campsite 8 near the south picnic area is accessible for people with disabilities and has an electrical hookup. A charcoal grill and fire ring are included on this site. An asphalt path provides a level surface to the parking lot, rest room and campsite.

Backpack, cart-in campsites

Buckhorn State Park offers carts to campers at our backpack sites. These carts are available for sites 1-7, 13-15, 17-19, 26-29, 34-38 and 43-45. A shared cart is available for sites 10-12, 23-25, 30-33 and 39-42.

This type of camping offers opportunity to enjoy nature in a secluded wilderness setting without the effort and weight limitations of backpack camping. No special gear is required. Campers can also get their gear to the sites by boat or canoe.

All the backpack sites are in small clusters and most are secluded and near the water. The individual sites are further apart than traditional campsites. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and bench. A portable toilet is available for each cluster of sites. A small pit toilet is available for sites 26-29.

Accessible cabin for people with disabilities

An accessible cabin for use by people with disabilities is available at Buckhorn State Park. The cabin can accommodate up to six people and can be rented for a maximum of four nights per year. The cabin is located next to an accessible fishing pier.

Handicap Accessible Cabin at Buckhorn near the fishing pier.To reserve the accessible cabin, check availability and send the reservation form to the Buckhorn State Park office.

Group sites

Three group tent camping sites (B1, B2 and B3) on the park's east side can accommodate up to 40 people each. Water and vault toilets are available, but no electricity. RV's and pop-up units must park on the gravel in the parking area. The group camp area has a volleyball court and a horseshoe pit. Horseshoes and volleyballs can be checked out at the park office free of charge.

Rustic shelter

A rustic shelter was built in 1995 for use by campers in sites 10 through 12 and 25. The shelter is intended 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 campsites near the shelter are only a few hundred yards from a parking area and can be reserved. A cart, which is shared by all the campsites, is available to haul in camp gear. The shelter is very popular with the campers at these sites.
