Discover Burt Lake State Park, MI


Tucked away at the heart of the inland waterway in Indian River is where you will find the enthralling Burt Lake State Park. Sitting on the southern shores of Burt Lake, this state park sits smack dab at the meeting point of Sturgeon River and the lake. While the park is situated in a peaceful and silent area, the towns of Wolverine and Cheboygan are just a short drive away. Search for an RV in Cheboygan County and explore the region’s best highlights in the comfort of your home away from home.

Covering 406 acres just across the road from the expansive Gaylord State Forest Area, there is no doubt that this area is a hotbed of outdoor activities. Fishing, hiking, and boating are just some of the activities to look out for when RV camping at Burt Lake State Park. The vast area between Lake Huron and Lake Michigan is a gigantic nature lover’s paradise that is begging for exploration, and there’s no better spot on the map to set up base camp than at Burt Lake State Park. Park your RV rental at Burt Lake State Park and see for yourself what the region has in store?

Getting Outdoors

Perhaps the best thing about the park is the simple fact that it is located in northern Michigan. The seasons greatly affect the region positively hence opening up a long list of new activities now and then, offering you the "Pure Michigan" experience. If you’re feeling too macho for the one-mile hiking trail in the park, the neighboring Gaylord State Forest Area is a utopia of trails. The three-mile-long Deadman’s Hill Pathway is perfect for an afternoon hike with your better half.

Boaters will be delighted to see the well-built boat ramp but even more exciting is the inland waterway that links Burt Lake to Mullett Lake, which further extends over to Black Lake and Lake Huron. With so many lake options, you could enjoy breakfast at Indianville, lunch at Topinabee, and supper at Mackinaw City. Not having a boat does not mean that you’ll have to miss out as there are a couple of marinas in the area that rent boats.

When the sun gets a little bit too hot, the beach at Burt Lake State Park would be a nice place to take a dip. Spanning more than 2000 feet, the day use sandy beach is also just as good for shoreline fishing. An advantage that anglers have is the option to switch between Burt Lake and the Sturgeon River. During the winter, you’ll love snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the non-groomed trails.

Camping at Burt Lake State Park

When you decide to go camping at Burt Lake State Park, you’ll be delighted to know that both the pull-thru and back-in sites are generously sized and that big rigs are welcomed. The campsites have electric hookups and are heavily shaded. The sites located close to the lake are however warm and sunny.

Don't leave Milo and Otis behind as pets are allowed. There is even a dedicated dog beach. Over at the human beach, the water is shallow for a long way out, making it excellent for the kids to enjoy. Unlike the Great Lakes, the water here is also significantly warmer.

Speaking of the kids, there are picnic spots and fire rings, which will make for some fun family time. It would just be the right time to set up a barbecue and make lots of family memories.

Exploring the Area

After a weekend camping at Burt Lake State Park, it would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the area. A nice place to start would be the Cross in the Woods. Whatever your belief, this place is guaranteed to move you. It is a massive crucifix with a figure of Christ standing on top of a hill, making it a great photo location. Many steps are leading up to the base of the monument, therefore wear comfortable shoes if you plan on going to the top. A visit to this breathtaking place would be inspiring and unforgettable.

If you’re a book lover, you might have come across books authored by Jonathan Rand some time in your life. The prolific writer is often found at a bookstore named Chillermania, just about three miles from the park. If you’ve been thinking of a way to get the kids hooked to books, take them there to pick out books autographed by the legend himself.

Great food can turn a boring outing into a fantastic getaway. Luckily, the folks at Indian River take their cooking seriously. Find a parking spot for your Indian River camper rental and indulge in an unforgettable food experience that will leave you so full that walking will be an issue.
