We really enjoy playing disc golf at the Buck Creek course. There are beautiful views of the water, along with nice trails through the woods. Make sure to take lots of water, though, on sunny days.

We are so very fortunate to live so close to a beautiful and well kept park. There is so much to see and do. We hike as many other we are able. Always offers something new to love just around the path.

Clean well managed walkways with a nice view of the reservoir and neighboring Reid Park. Great place to walk ... the crossing of the damnation, the visitor center, and the spillway area all offer a pleasant walking experience. Boating, kayaking, and picnicking in the spring and summer have always been positive experiences ... restrooms were clean ...

Hiking, fishing, boating, horse-back riding, camping and star gazing. It's really all here at Buck Creek State Park! We had a wonderful family reunion this month with cabins rented and people camping too. The out of towners were pleasantly surprised with the accomadations and would come back.
