“The quietest of the Tamiami Trail Big Cypress Campgrounds”

Overall Rating

Burns Lake is a simple campground that is open with a picnic table and fire grate at all sites. Bear boxes available on tent camping side. 10 RV sites on one side of the lake, 5 tent camping sites on the other. The current sign from Dec. 2018 says that you need to reserve sites online. They used to take walk ups, by I don't know if they do now. Clean outhouses. No water or electricity. Like all Big Cypress campgrounds, it is overpriced. That being said, I like it the best because it is far enough back from Tamiami Trail that you don't hear road noise like the others. Peaceful and quiet on a pretty small lake. Good fishing nearby along the Tamiami Trail. Not far from a restaurant and gas station. Here is a link to my Youtube review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-0qNMXrs28&t=20s
