    About Buckingham Lake
    Albany County, New York

    Buckingham Lake is in Albany, New York, under five miles from the downtown area. This county has a population of around 97,000 people.

    The closest major airport is Albany International and lies a short 13-minute drive from the lake. Urgent care can be provided at St. Peter’s Hospital, less than a mile away.

    Stock up on snacks and groceries at Market 32, less than two miles away. Locals recommend restaurants such as Cafe Madison, The Cuckoo’s Nest, Crave, and Son of Egg.

    Cozy and Quaint

    At five acres and an average depth of three feet, Buckingham Lake is on the smaller side but is close to a major city.

    Despite its size, anglers have a great chance of getting lucky on this lake. Fish species that can be found on this lake are largemouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, pumpkinseed, catfish, smallmouth bass, and black crappie.

    The lake is part of Buckingham Lake Park, which includes a small recreation area, picnic tables, playground equipment, and a 0.72-mile gravel walking/jogging path. In the winter, ice skating is a popular option here.

    Discover Albany

    The capital of New York has no shortage of fun things to do.

    The top-rated attraction here is the New York State Museum. This museum has a variety of different exhibits and has free admission.

    Those with an interest in naval history should go on a tour at the USS Slater DE-776. This restored destroyer gives visitors unique insights as to what it was like to be a sailor back in the day.

    "Hamilton" fans should be interested in the nearby Schuyler Mansion, home to Colonel Schuyler and his daughters Peggy, Angelica, and Eliza.

    Crossgates Mall makes for a great shopping destination. With over 180 stores and restaurants located inside, Crossgates is something you don’t want to miss.

    Explore Nature

    Outdoorsmen and women should trek to either Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail or Albany Pine Bush Preserve.
