The world's largest "Cross in the Woods" is located near the park. Historic Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island are about 30 miles north on I-75. Hiking, cross-country skiing, ORV and snowmobiling trails are located nearby, along with many golf courses and restaurants.

The park is located in the "Heart" of Northern Michigan's famed Inland Waterway; a chain of rivers and lakes that offers approximately 38 miles of boating pleasure.

In 1920, the first portion of land was acquired for Burt Lake State Park. Other portions of land were acquired up until 1939, when the park reached its present size of 406 acres. A caretaker was put in charge of the park as early as 1921
