Buckingham Park (formerly Buckingham Peninsula) is an unincorporated community in Lake County, California.[1] It is located on the south shore of Clear Lake, on the peninsula just south of The Narrows and 4.8 mi (7.7 km) northeast of Kelseyville, 9 miles (14 km) east-southeast of Lakeport,[2] at an elevation of 1,414 feet (431 m).[1]

The name comes from a family that lived at the site in the 1880s and 1890s.[2]
