This city park provides recreational and educational activities for all ages. Set on 170 acres, it offers many recreational opportunities and is conveniently located to town and nearby activities. The Park features a large water park available for an extra fee.
You’ll love the Burdette Park Aquatic Center. It features an Olympic size pool with two diving boards, and another family pool with two water slides. There is also a children’s pool with a floating aligator. Smaller children will enjoy the interactive Spray Park. Rent a raft for a lazy float or enjoy snacks from the three concession areas. This park could give Splashin Safari some competition.
“We make frequent trips to Evansville to visit family and on this last trip we discovered Burdette Park. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pros? 1) Very close to everything you could possibly need but far enough away to be in the country, 2) Roads are paved nicely, 3) 20,30 & 50 amp service at each spot, 4) paved sites, 5) very quiet, 6) plenty of room between sites, 7) the manager is the absolute best, 8) Water park, BMX park, trails, fun park on premises, 9) Bath house is very nice, 10) wooded, 11) very private. Cons? 1) landscaping could be better, 2) roads around campers sites very narrow. Picnic tables are very old and brittle. Landscaping was sort of ragged but grass was cut. No problems with electric at all. Some sites have sewer but there’s a very nice dump station at the entrance. There is a great pizza place within a mile that delivers and the water park is huge and beautiful…very inviting. We really loved our stay here. Very few mosquitoes so that was a definite plus. Also, camping park is small so getting a site could prove difficult in the summer. We will be staying here quite often…it’s our new home away from home. We camped at Burdette Park in a Travel Trailer.” – John Merrell 1986, RV Park Reviews
