A full day of adventure awaits you at Burke Lake

Burke Lake Park has something for everyone. Whether you enjoy trail running, hiking, fishing, canoeing, Frisbee golf, or just having a picnic with your family, you can do it all at Burke Lake. Those who want to be active or exercise can run, hike or biket the 4.7 mile trail that circles the entire lake. The path is generally flat and hugs the lake most of the way around.  Be sure to keep an eye open for Bald eagles, Red-tailed hawks, Great Blue herons, Merganser ducks, and many other birds who make the park their home.

During the warmer months you can rent a canoe, play mini golf, ride a small train, or take children to the playground. Picnic tables are located throughout the park and around the lake for those who would like to eat. They even have a campground if you'd like to stay a few days.

Burke Lake Park is a wonderful place to get out and explore any time of the year.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
