Buck Lake and Buck Lake Association Events


This year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held at the Perth Road United Church Sunday School Hall at 9am on Saturday, July 8th, 2023. The meeting was followed by a pancake breakfast so everyone had the opportunity to talk to members of the Buck Lake Association and other Buck Lakers.


Held on Family Day this event has a bit of a troubled past. We rely on consistent, cold weather so that the lake is safe for skating and other fun activities. Typically events for kids of all ages are organized and everyone enjoys a winter bbq. This year’s event was held at Hidden Valley Campground on Monday, February 19th, 2024 from 1pm to 4pm.


This event began in 2021. Buckstock is an afternoon concert and picnic which raises funds for Southern Frontenac Community Services. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, July 6th, 2024 at Hidden Valley Campground.


Boatilla Held from 2005 to 2019, the Boatilla raised funds to send Easter Seals kids to Camp Merrywood. Following a tour of the South Branch, boaters met at Hidden Valley Campground for a picnic and the presentation to Easter Seals.

Education Night

The Annual Education Night is organized by the Friends of the Lake committee and is usually held in mid-July at the Perth Road Sunday School Hall.  Each year brings us new and interesting speakers on a wide range of environmental topics designed to be of interest to the whole family.


Great Food at the Buck Lake Picnic

One of the highlights of the summer is the Buck Lake Picnic. A wonderful opportunity to get together with fellow Buck Lakers and enjoy some great food and conversation.  In addition, there are always games and crafts to keep the kids entertained.


Every year we create a Buck Lake calendar filled with your amazing pictures from around the lake. We collect pictures throughout the year and the calendars typically go on sale in October.

Send your pictures to us at BuckLakeAssoc@nullgmail.com. Please send the pictures at full resolution and provide your name and information about where the photo was taken.

Murder Mystery

Murder Mystery Dinner It’s been a few years now but we used to host an annual Murder Mystery each October jointly with the Westport Legion.

In addition to the Murder Mystery, there was a silent auction with a huge selection of items to bid on. The proceeds from the auction were shared between the Legion and Buck Lake with the Buck Lake portion supporting Easter Seals Camp Merrywood.


Buck Lake is fortunate to have two excellent 9-hole golf courses located near by in Westport – Evergreen and Rideau Lakes. Several events are held there through-out the summer months including:

  • Buck Lake Monday Morning Golf League. For info write to BuckLakeGolf@nullgmail.com
  • The North-South Challenge (aka the Battle of the Branches)
  • The Rider Cup Golf tournament
