Q: Can we bring our pets with us?

A: Yes you can! We love our guests' pets at Buffalo Lake. We even have specific rental units that are pet-friendly for your convenience.

Q: Can we have visitors while camping?

A: Registered Campers are allowed to have visitors from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Visitors' cars must be parked in the parking lots or within your campsite. Campers are responsible for the actions of their guests, and camping permit(s) will be revoked for violations of rules and regulations by guests.

Q: Can we request a specific campsite?

A: You may book a specific site through our online booking tool that will provide all available sites for the date range you are booking in. Happy booking!

Q: Are campfires allowed and can I bring firewood?

A: Campfires are certainly allowed! You must use our fire rings for all fires and you must extinguish the fire when you leave the campsite. However, we do not allow campers to bring in their own firewood outside of 25 miles to protect against the spreading of invasive species. Firewood is available for purchase at our store!

Always a great time at Buffalo Lake Camping! The staff are so friendly and the activities are always a great time for kids. Can't wait for the next visit!

    A small campground that is perfect for that quiet get-away or a fun-filled themed weekend (i.e. - Halloween). Nice clean bathrooms & showers and campsites. Friendly staff.

  • Great Camping Here...

    The owners are genuinely interested in their guests, making everyone feel at home. Great camping here.

  • Highly Recommended!...

    Love going here for a weekend or longer of camping. Linda and Gary are more than helpful. Nice pool, clean restrooms, pier fishing just across the road. They always seem to have something going on. Bingo, scavenger hunts and raffles just to name a few. Highly recommended!

  • Very Friendly...

    Very friendly with great activities. Food is great and campsites are large and clean.

  • Great Campground...

    Great campground. They really go out of their way to give you options. It's nice as a grown up and also if you have kids.

  • Look No Further...

    If you want a nice getaway with the family, look no further. Staff, who feel like your old buddies go above and beyond to make sure your visit is fun-filled. Have pull-through and back in sites. Both of which provide shade and nothing is too far away. Oh and they make blended drinks in the office. WIN!

  • Owners are super nice and accommodating...

    Clean bathroom and showers. Owners are super nice and accommodating. We stayed 5 days and four nights at site 104 in a tent. Fished everyday on the lake from the pier or boat. Was also able to dock the boat when not in use. Great fishing lake. Very nice campground.

  • Amazing Place and People...

    Very family friendly campground with a pool, arcade, and 2 play grounds as well as the lake across the street! Amazing place and people.

  • We Had a Wonderful Experience...

    We had a wonderful experience at Buffalo Lake Camping Resort for Dinosaur Weekend. Our 3 year old absolutely loved the Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt. The adults in our group love the drinks at Buffalo Range! The staff was super friendly, the bathrooms… were clean as everyone else stated 😉 and the campground was very welcoming and clean.
