    Buck Lake is a private camp area that is accessible by an unimproved (dirt) road about 2-3 miles off rt 19. The accomodations are limited, in that, there is only a pit toilet and no electricity.

    This is about much the same as you've experienced - there is no single area that will accomodate everyone to hang. Many will have to go a few hundred yard up/down the trail or have to bushwack to a perfect pair of trees.

    There is however, a very nice common area on the waterfront with a fire pit and several picnic tables.

    There is a hand well (in the common area) that provides what is considered the best water in ONF.
