  • Hi there! Is there a place to swim/canoeing nearby? Thank you!

    Buckhorn is located between two beautiful lakes, both of which offer great swimming and canoeing. There is the Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park with many lakes and rivers. The Kawarthas are, literally, the land of "Shining Waters".
