Burr Pond is part of a State Park with a beach and canoe/kayak rentals, but the boat launch has a separate entrance and there's no fee to put your boat in the water or park at the launch site. There are no power boats or jet skis to contend with, but you'll find other kayakers and canoeists paddling or fishing.
The wooded hillsides come right to the waters edge, and there is a hiking trail a short distance back from the shoreline. The main body of the pond splits into three coves at the south end which makes for an interesting paddle.
You'll find a variety of birds and other wildlife as well as water lilies and other aquatic plants towards the south end of the pond. Watch out for rocks just below the surface at various locations around the shore. It can be a busy place on weekends, but is generally very quiet during the week.
