This 40-acre island in the middle of the Cumberland River is great for fishing.

On our maiden voyage of the RV, we were literally worn out from driving and found this state park to stop. We were fortunate to be taken to a campsite that was a bit isolated, some were literally one next to the other. Bathrooms super...More

This is NOT a criticism of the course itself. In fact, it's in very good shape, the various crews are clearly doing a good job, and the pro shop staff is helpful and friendly. But that apparently comes at a cost. $55.00 for green fees?...More

Our family uses the boat launch here - shuttle service when busy - gets busy on holiday weekends. Off-season is perfect here.

We went for a golf and camp mini vacation. The campground was well attended to but could use an update. That's the only reason it didn't get five stars. Everyone at the campground and golf course was extremely friendly. The golf course is well laid...More

If you're looking for a place to golf or a river access point for the boat, Burnside is a great park! Aside from that, it doesn't have much to offer. The pool is closed down, there aren't any trails for running or hiking, there weren't...More

We arrived as a group of 12 separate campers (part of a camping club) - they had us booked close to each other. Staff was polite and knowledgeable, clean bathrooms and well maintained lawn. The swimming pool was closed. We will return someday.

I liked the fact it was within a day's drive and not to worn out to enjoy the peaceful, serene setting. Had interesting facts posted along a trail.

One of the best golf courses I have I ever played. Its in really great shape. Lots of sand traps. Design of this course is amazing. The playability was great also. We will definitely play it again!

We just loved this course. Found it strange that it was mostly Zoyza grass, being more of a northern golf course. This course was well maintained and a joy to pay. Usually, every course I play has a hole or two that I think are...More
