Burlington Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos


John Redmond Lake was built in 1964 to control flooding. In addition to controlling flooding the lake has created a place for boating, fishing, and wildlife.
The city of New Strawn is called New Strawn because the former town of Strawn is under the lake.

Directions: Look for the road to the dam in New Strawn. There is a big sign near 75 highway.
othercontact: The shallow end of John Redmond

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
