Open May - October. Buck Pond compares to a mountain retreat; it offers secluded sites, numerous water access, a guarded bathing beach, and a walking path that stretches for miles along an abandoned railroad bed. The campground offers a variety of recreational opportunities, including canoeing and boating, fishing, hiking, and bicycling. Buck Pond Campground is located on the western shore of 130-acre Buck Pond. The Lake Kushaqua and the Kushaqua Narrows form most of the western and northern boundaries of the campground. Construction of the campground began in July 1965, and the campground opened in 1968. The main campground road is constructed on the original roadbed of the Chateaugay Branch of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. Campsites, restrooms with showers, a trailer dump station, a recycling center, a boat launch at Lake Kushaqua, a car top boat launch, boat and canoe rentals, and a sand beach with a bathhouse are just a few of the amenities that make this campground unique.
