Buckhorn Lake covers 2,100 acres of water and land. That makes it the perfect place to spend some quality time with Mother Nature. Drop your boat into the water and find the perfect fishing hole. The lake is packed with crappie, muskie, catfish and rainbow trout. But, if you’re looking to turn up the adrenaline meter a bit, try your hand at water skiing, kayaking or bring your horse to trot around the trails. The lake is located about 20 minutes from Downtown Wilson. Which makes it easy to get to, but hard to leave behind.
