Buck's Lake Recreation Area is humble but idyllic. The smell of pines, campfire and the water mixed with indistinct sounds from boats focus your presence. The climbing described here is for visitors or locals, for this is will never be a major destination.

There are a few areas with concentrations of rock, but many more are sparsely hidden among the trees. Part of the experience is exploration and discovery. For future adventurers, please minimize your impact, limiting cleaning moss and removing plants. 

Getting There 

Food, drink and lodging can be found at Buck's Lake Lodge and Lakeshore Resort. Campgrounds in the area include Buck's Lake Lodge, Haskins, Sandy Point, and White Horse.
