This is a quiet and inexpensive camping and recreation area that has a lot to offer and is open year round.

Burke Lake State Recreation Area has mature trees and a beautiful 25-acre lake for visitors to fully enjoy. The area has native and introduced prairie grasses and wildflowers around the 206-acre park. Visitors can see tons of wildlife that inhabit the area. There are 16 campsites available on a first-come, first-serve basis. All of the 16 sites are non-electric. The park welcomes tent campers and all RV-type campers. The lake has bass, perch, northern pike, bluegill, and bullheads. Visitors must have a fishing license to fish here. Hikers will enjoy the trails and the wide variety of flora and fauna that grow around the lake. Trees that grow in the area are cottonwood, green ash, locust, and hackberry. In the drier areas of the park, visitors will find ponderosa pine and eastern red cedar. Waterfowl can be seen along the shoreline such as mallards, widgeon, and wood ducks. Many of the birds nest and raise their families in the park. Other things that are fun to view are the northern harrier and red-tailed hawks that patrol the skies. Also look for turkeys, pheasants, and even white-tailed deer.

Campers and visitors enjoy boating, canoeing, fishing, hiking, kayaking, picnicking, and walking. There is a boat ramp, drinking water, fishing piers, picnic shelters, trails, picnic tables, and shore fishing access.
