Directions

In summer the only time you will be saying "brrr" is when you look at the address! Head to 10220 Burr Oak Lodge Road for that nature filled day out!

Where are we going today?

Burr Oak State Park has everything a nature loving family needs for that fun day out! Take in over 25 miles of rustic beauty and fresh air, along their scenic hiking trails.  Maybe you can spot some wildlife as you're walking?  Or maybe stop and have a play in the crunchy fall leaves?

You can really make a day of it with their grills and picnic tables, to enjoy a delicious lunch right in the middle of nature, or enjoy a quick swim and bask in the sun on their 900ft sandy beach.

If you need that little bit of shade you can always use their shelter house during those really hot moments.

If you are more of a water baby or a fishing fanatic, then you have a pristine 161 acre lake where you can rent a fun pontoon boat from the seasonal marina, or fish from the lakeshore and try and catch the catfish, crappie, bluegills or bass that call the lake their home.

Bet you can catch a whole heap of fish!

There are 30 cottages, 2 camper cabins, 17 electric sites and 67 non-electric sites for you to choose from if you decide you want to extend your family day out to a weekend.  And why not! It's an incredible part of the country, and the mornings can be breathtaking! 

There is also a strong mining history in the area, so why not spend some time learning about the fascinating history while you are there, then you can fully immerse yourself in the Burr Oak experience!

    We just camped at Burr Oak this past Sunday afternoon-Friday morning. It was a great time! The staff was wonderful. The shower house/bathrooms were clean and had hot water always. The shower curtains could probably stand to be soaked in bleach or replaced (stained), but I did not get grossed out or anything. LOL There is great hiking in the area, and the beach was immaculate and very pleasant. If you have not seen the campgrounds, you may want to take a look before you book. Some of the sites are very steep and not suitable for tent camping....Read More

    FABULOUS GETAWAY We could not be more pleased by the room, cleanliness and most of all the hospitality. The front Desk gracious, and the Restaurant Mgr. "Starr" was amazing. The food and service could not have been any better. The chef is great and very accommodating, prices more than reasonable. We will certainly go back. All the employees we encountered were all about making our stay great. Plenty of places to fish off the bank, as we do and plenty of boat docks. We couldn't believe the prices for the room and meals. Don't miss out on...Read More

    Stayed at a cabin there in February 2014. Hiked the trails, ate at the Lodge and enjoyed some bluegrass music that night. They have really turned this place around. The cabin was clean, warm, had all the necessary cookware, utensils, toiletries, etc. and the personnel were very gracious and helpful. Was very pleased with our stay and will return again this summer for another get-a-way.

    I want to thank Burr Oak for finding and sending me my travel bag with all my toiletries in it to me after I'd left it there at a retreat. They were very willing to help and got it back to me within just a couple of days. Thanks so much!

Some of the sites are very steep and not suitable for tent camping. We switched to #4 (up closer to the office) and loved it! We would consider it for future camping trips.
