won’t go back

unfriendly staff - camp is way too big for my taste - it’s mass camping

one night visit

the park is big and wild but the staff is rude and useless. Campgrounds are very close from one another.

Plenty to do

Great family place. Not much for privacy. Nice pond for fishing and swimming. RV, Tent and Cabins with a store on site.

Nice campground

Super large sites, store is adequately stocked, nice lake/pond. I came here because of the location. Super close to the beach. This is a state park, no alcohol is allowed, quiet time strictly enforced. Nice family campground. No hookups.


Nice shade, beautiful “pond” but little privacy. Great family getaway!

Affordable with running water

The campground itself is beautiful with the trees and lake. However if you are bringing an RV there are no hookups and there are very few level sites. We camped in our tent when we stayed. And even that was a challenge because the site was so unlevel. The other negativity is that the sites are literally on top of one another. There’s no privacy and all you can see is other people. One positive is they have a bath house with coin operated showers and regular toilets.

for a family or couple looking for a quick and close to home getaway with out paying a fortune it’s a good place to stay.

Burlingame State Park

Great camping especially by the pond

HUGE campground with "beach"

Burlingame state park is a giant campground with plenty of space in each site. There are bathrooms and a store on site, as well as several dump stations and water fill ups. There are no hookups. The pond has a nice beach area with a life guard. No outside firewood is allowed, so make sure to buy it in park.

Great campground for the price

Very affordable (around $14 per night). We stayed near the camp store and playground. Lots to do with kids including fishing, game room, and hiking. Bathrooms were clean. No electricity at the sites. Will try a cabin next time.
