About Lake Buckhorn
Lake Buckhorn is a private, members-only gated community built around a 220-acre constructed lake. The entire development encompasses 1,100+ acres. The lake was begun in 1967, by American Realty Services, the original developer.
There are approximately 600 members and more than 300 homes in Lake Buckhorn. Homes and members range from year-round residents to “snowbirds,” to vacation homeowners, to lot owners.
Lake Buckhorn is located along OH-83 in Clark Mechanic Township, Holmes County, Ohio. The entire development is in the West Holmes School district. Public school children attend Clark Elementary, West Holmes Jr. High School, and West Holmes High School.
The dam which holds the 220-acre lake was constructed to meet U.S. Army Corps of Engineers standards. The dam undergoes continual monitoring and maintenance to ensure its integrity.
The dam, certain property, and facilities at Lake Buckhorn are owned by the Lake Buckhorn Property Owners Association, Inc. (LBPOA). A nine-member elected board of trustees oversees the business matters of the LBPOA.
