Things to Do in Burnett County

Go jump in a lake…
No really, you won’t regret it. With over 500 lakes in the county, many with public access, it’s no wonder the most popular summer pastimes take place at a lake. From family picnics and reunions to afternoons with just your lawn chair and a book, there is a way for everyone to enjoy our scenic lakes. Cast your line into our abundant waters and reel in bass, musky, northern pike, bluegill, or a walleye. Seek the massive, prehistoric sturgeons that swim the waters of Yellow and other lakes.
