“Love it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Burr Pond is like taking a mini vacation. It is the best place to experience each of the four seasons and take in the loveliness of the area. My fav time of year is fall and winter.

“So peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I love the drive to get there. It is pet friendly so I bring my small dog. Beware of other oweners that say "oh my dog is friendly" as it rips your poor pooches ear open. But other than that my kids love swimming here and I went there alot growing up. It is so cool to see my kids jumping around the same way I did as a child. They have boat rentals and a snack shack also tables and fire pits to cook. Just a great family day. Bring your charcoal and your money for parking.
