Three boat launch ramps provide boat access to Burnsville Lake for boating, sightseeing and fishing. This 1,900-acre lake in central West Virginia, at Burnsville has 30 miles of shoreline. There are plenty of places to wet a line in pursuit of the bass, walleye, sauger, saugeye, crappie, catfish, sunfish and muskie dwelling here. Access for fishing from shore is limited, but there are areas at both ends of the lake for this. Fishing from a boat, canoe, kayak or pontoon is a more productive way to attack this scenic fishery. A marina and three campgrounds enhance boating and camping during your stay. These waters receive little fishing pressure which results in quality fishing for those who do fish here. Bass are abundant, with many in the "big fish" category, over five pounds.
