Things to Do

Burns Lake's close proximity to robust wilderness and an assortment of lakes make it an opportune destination for outdoor activities
Popular activities include fishing, boating, camping, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, and even gem and rock hunting. Winters offer almost as much selection in the form of snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice-fishing.
Summer is the time to take advantage of the many surrounding lakes. Hop in a boat for a day of fishing and vie for a hefty rainbow trout. Boating just for fun – motor, canoe or kayak – swimming, waterskiing, and tubing are also options.
