Buckhorn State Park

The Castle Rock Flowage has earned a reputation as an excellent fishery. The wide variety of fish species found in the flowage offers anglers year-round action, in a vast number of areas. The best places to catch fish from Buckhorn's shores are off the 90-foot accessible fishing pier by the north picnic area, along the shore by the Buckhorn bridge and from the shoreline by the canoe launch. A fishing license is required for all anglers 16 years of age and older.

The Boat Launch A ramp area has a floating boarding pier, accessible for people with disabilities. Boat Launch C also has an accessible pier on the west side of the causeway bridge.

A kids fishing pond with a pier is north of the park entrance on the Turtle trail. The Friends of Buckhorn stock the pond. Parking is allowed on the side of County Highway G for visitors to hike the 350 yards in to the pond. A small picnic shelter with tables is available near the pond.

Anglers of any age may check out basic fishing equipment free of charge at the park office. This equipment was donated by the Tackle Loaner Program. Call the park office to find out what equipment is available.
