Oh lord....it's muck, weeds, usually not clear. most lot's on north side except for the north west side are fairly high and there is a decline to the lake.
I'd say if you like to chase LMB and 7 range bluegills, i'm sure they can be found all year. The river to puckaway is a much better fishery, that is below the damn on buffalo.
as far as my opinion goes, run.
Hmmm I read his question again and he didn't ask about weeds. I think you're correct to point out that Buffalo Lake is weedy. I guess I'd like to see folks actually try and answer the question rather than rant about their personal opinions.
To suggest that one consider buying property on Green Lake as opposed to Buffalo Lake is great advice except for the fact that properties on Green Lake are 10 times more expensive. There are far superior bodies of water than Buffalo Lake in Central Wisconsin but they come at a price point substantially higher.
Agree with the posters below. I spent years with a camper in the Buffalo Lake Campground and ended up dragging my boat to other lakes most days. I had a friend that almost got sucked in by a realtor with great spring pics before the weeds come up. You can pull up timeline photos on Google Earth that will show the weed situation during various times of year.
