  • If you live in Lubbock Texas, you know it is not the most scenic city in the world. However, it is the best place to live in Texas. For us Buffalo Lakes is an oasis. It not really a killer fishing lake, but I fly fish and catch small bass, perch and other species every time we go there. I have been going to the lake all of my life, so I can see the improvements that have taken place through the years. Yes, I am probably bias. When we just need to get away (which is about 3-4 times a week during the summer), we take a small grill and a fly rod and head to Buffalo. As you enter and drive down into the lake, you realize just how pretty the canyons are and the color change. The lake has been utilized well to support a lot of camping areas. There is no wasted space. It's clean, quite, peaceful, especially during the week. We have an annual pass which is reasonable in price. When we just need to take a drive and get out of the house for a change of scenery, buffalo is the perfect place to unwind whether it's spring/summer/fall or winter. It makes living in the flat land more tolerable for us.
  • Don't waste your time here. They charge way to much only to be harassed by the authorities. They say it's for safety but it's not. They don't know what 50ft is and even when your being safe they will still pull you over and harass you. Take the time and money somewhere else. It'll be worth the drive.
  • Went there yesterday and it was amazing! It truly is a little oasis tucked into the canyon in the desert. Definitely will be going again. Only thing is the price is a little steep if you're just going to the beach for the day. They allow pets which is awesome!
  • Love it here. Very relaxing and super k8d friendly. 10 stars for a small lake
  • I love the lake so much. It's a great place to take the family and friends out to enjoy the sun
