Buckley Dunton Lake is a scenic, high mountain lake located in the October Mountain State Forest, the largest state forest in Massachusetts. Dammed in 1967 for the purpose of flood control by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, the beauty and tranquility of Buckley Dunton Lake is relished by visitors. Canoeing, hiking, boating, wildlife viewing, and many more activities are enjoyed at the lake; camping is permitted from mid-May through mid-October at designated areas within the forest.

The average depth of Buckley Dunton Lake is 6-feet, with some areas reaching 10-feet. The lake-bed is composed of mud, and there is abundant structure in the form of stumps and fallen tree limbs due to the lake being created over an existing forest. The water is clear to a depth of 3-4 feet; and aquatic vegetation is limited, being mostly present in the shallow north and south coves, and the lake shoreline.

Buckley Denton Reservoir has a mostly undeveloped shoreline with many areas providing access for canoeing, kayaking, and/or shoreline fishing. A public boat launch is located at the dam where parking is available; no town resident sticker required.
