Burke Lake Park's centerpiece is a 218-acre lake with 5.25 miles of fishing shoreline, four fishing bulkheads at the state game area, a new fishing pier, and a boat launching dock. Both the fishing bulkheads and the fishing pier are accessible to persons with disabilities. A 4.68 trail surrounds the lake starting at the marina parking lot.
Great Fishing Right here in Fairfax County! "Phenonmenal." That's how the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources describes the Largemouth Bass population at Burke Lake Park. The lake is ranked tops among the state's "small impoundments" in relative stock density of preferred fish, which measures the percentage of the population comprised of big fish at least 15 inches long. The lake also features Walleye, Muskie, Catfish, Black Crappie, Yellow and White Perch, and a variety of Sunfish and Bluegill. Virginia residents age 16 and up need a fishing license to try their luck at Burke.
