ABOUT LAKE BURGEN
I am a fan of Lake Burgen. While it isn’t a big lake (174 acres), I think anyone that has been on it will tell you that it feels much bigger. If you read my blog, you know I like Stand Up Paddleboarding. Burgen is one of my favorite lakes to visit. There is a fantastic Public Access at the north end of the lake with about 500 feet of level, sandy bottomed shoreline. Burgen is at the south end of Alexandria so I can reach it quickly from my office, pull my inflatable SUP out of my trunk, inflate and in an hour cover most of the lake’s shoreline. Other reasons I like this lake for future appreciation of real estate values is that it’s proximity to Alexandria’s new high school, Woodland Elementary School, medical facilities and the shopping district off of I-94.
Burgen is in Douglas County and its lake classification is Recreational Development.
