Burnsville Lake Shelters create a wonderful setting for daytime gatherings on Burnsville Lake. The six group picnic shelters are scattered across two ends of the lake. Shelters 1-4 are near the dam while shelters 5 and 6 are upstream near the inflow from the Little Kanawha River.


The primary pastime at the picnic shelters, naturally, is picnicking. Activities like biking, hiking and fishing are also quite popular.


The shelters are equipped with drinking water and a large charcoal grill; shelters 3 and 5 have electricity. All shelters are close to playgrounds and flush toilets. Groups with young children may prefer shelters 2, 3, 4 and 5, as they are nearest to playground facilities.

Natural Features

The reservoir was built in 1978 for flood control. Its beautiful setting between the Allegheny Mountains and Allegheny Plateau create a lush backdrop of steep hills.

Nearby Attractions

Take a trip back in time at the Bulltown Historical Village to get a taste of life during the Civil War era. The village and visitor center is nearest to shelters 5 and 6.
