  • We take our son and grandsons out tubing every chance we can. The lake is so clean and lots of room for tubing. Lots of sandy beaches.  more »
  • Clean and well organized park. We liked the trees near the beach that kept us cool on a hot day. We will come back someday.  more »
  • The state park is located on beautiful Burt Lake. There is a huge sandy beach area. The water out in the lake is very clean. Good place for kids to swim.  more »
  • Parked the boat outside the swim area and went ashore for ice cream. Water is absolutely clear. Sand extends well out into the water and is free from rocks. Great place to take your boat.
  • Beautiful lake, easy access. The spring fed water is shallow on clean soft sand. The beach is nice and the swim area is a very long sandbar with a dramatic drop off just past the buoy line .
  • Staff here was very helpful, and accommodating. Fun campground! Would stay again :) Very dog friendly.
  • They were doing construction the day I went their for a walk with my dogs but, it's beautiful and it's mostly quiet.....but then again it's not full on summer yet.
