Decent pavilion with electrical outlets for a gathering. Decent beach for kids to play. Lots of boats going in and seemed like a good spot for boating. Very clean but bathrooms were rustic. State park so 11$ to get in unless you have the pass.

This park has a great beach, close to a livery that rents tubes, kayaks, has bumper boats and minature golf. The park is well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. Some shower houses are a bit old but anyone who uses our state parks...More

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.

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.

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.

Very nice sandy beach. Water is shallow for some distance. Campground is currently closed for renovation. The closest town, Indian River, is very small town and quaint.

This campground is in a perfect location if you plan on visiting mackinaw because .its only like 20miles away. The only thing that is not that good was the showers. They really didnt clean them very well. Other than that it is a nice campground.

Burt Lake State Park is one of our favorite places to camp. The sites are nice, the beach is nice, they have a separate dog beach. The sites aren't packed in there like most campgrounds. They're pretty roomy some more than others.
