Burnham Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Burnham Point State Park is a little green square of public land northeast of the village of St. Vincent. It’s also the westernmost park on the St. Lawrence. Sites are arranged in three rows that parallel the river. Numbers 44–50 are on the water; number 11 is handicapped accessible. Meanwhile, the shower house is closest to sites 10–13 and numbers 18, 21, and 22. Due in part to its size, Burnham Point does not have a beach or a swimming area and lacks hiking trails. Instead, campers can launch boats into the St. Lawrence, picnic on the grassy lawn, fish for bass, pike, muskellunge, and walleye, or simply gaze across the river at Carleton Island. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required for all pets, which are not permitted in the park’s picnic areas."
