3 Reviews of General Burnside Island State Park
Great little campground

Camp ground is set up pretty well. Could use a little more gravel since it's a little muddy at times but overall a great experience. Clean and convenient bath houses. Sites laid our really well for buddy camping. Already booked 2 more weekends there this summer!! Ice and firewood on site for sale. Utilities placed conveniently close to rv pads.

Ehh, well kept green

If your going to the woods to golf…then this is for you. No trails, but a very nice golf course. Then there's the boating. The campground was a little close and crowded the October weekend I was there, but maintained and well staffed.

Burnside Island State Park

Come here for golf, fishing, and/or picnics not much else to do. The golf course is apparently well known and quite pretty, but we spent the weekend hiking in nearby Daniel Boone Park while the guys golfed. There’s some Civil War history here too (hence the name of the park). There’s a town with grocery, supplies, restaurants, etc. just a few miles up the roads, which is nice and convenient. The campgground is among the trees but no sites (AFIAK) are along the water and most aren’t too shady. Ours was nice and grassy and close enough to the golf course that the kids enjoyed finding golf balls…so if you’re afraid of getting hit stay to the northern campsites. Great site if you’re boating (there’s a launch on site) or golfing, but not so great for enjoying nature and getting away from it all.
