Burr Oak State Park is remote and quiet, set among 2,593-acres of wooded hills and scenic valleys of the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The forest of Burr Oak State Park is comprised mostly of oaks and hickories, and supports a variety of wildlife such as deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, beaver and various waterfowl along the lake's shoreline. Camping is available at Burr Oak, along with 30 comfortable cottages with air conditioning and cable TV, situated in the hills overlooking the lake. Burr Oak Lake is 664 acres and offers boating and fishing for largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish.
