Burke Lake Park Description
One of the most popular parks in the DC area, Burke Lake has a variety of activities to keep the entire family occupied.
The park has frisbee golf and traditional golf courses, a campground, several playground areas and picnic shelters.
The 200 acre lake is stocked with largemouth bass. Visitors can take a boat out on the lake - rowboat rentals are available.
The doubletrack trail that encircles the lake is always crowded with hikers, joggers, and cyclists. Unless you are at the park during
off hours, it is difficult to maneuver through the crowds on the Lake Loop. This park is a perfect choice for taking the family for a leisurly bike ride
around the lake & a picnic lunch. There is limited singletrack riding at Burke Lake, though a few miles of trails do exist that that branch off of the main doubletrack trail
around the lake.
