Although the primary purpose of the dam is flood control, Burnsville Lake offers many recreational opportunities such as hunting, fishing, picnicking, hiking, camping, and much more. At the Burnsville Lake Dam and the Riffle Run Campground/Day-Use/Boat Launch, you can take advantage of camping at one of sixty sites (non-reservable, electric & non-electric), take a picnic or plan a family reunion at one of the four reservable shelters. Boat rentals and storage are available at the marina. Take a trip back in time at the Bulltown Historical Village to get a taste of pioneer life during the Civil War Era. At Bulltown Campground, you can camp next to the lake, or surround yourself in the forest, at one of the 204 campsites (reservable, electric & non-electric).

Its great and their playgrounds are wonderful. The kids can just go ride their bikes in all the different loops and if you get a spot on the lake they can swim right at camp, I love it. However, they are hard to get into so make sure you reserve early.
