    Description


    Buryanek Recreation Area is popular with boaters and anglers, as well those looking for scenic beauty along the Missouri River. History buffs will enjoy knowing that the Lewis and Clark expedition traveled through the area, where they were told to watch for "burning bluffs" along the river. Modern-day travelers can book campsites and cabins online using the handy online system. The system is fast, easy-to-use and available 24 hours a day. Both the park and the cabins are open year-round to take advantage of the changing seasons.

    The three cozy cabins have contemporary touches, like heating, air conditioning and electricity. A family can sleep comfortably, then dine outdoors using the fire grate and picnic table. Make sure to pack cooking utensils, sleeping bags and linens and a container for water. Amenities of Buryanek Recreation Area include a boat ramp, beach, dump station, fish cleaning station, playground and picnic shelter. Bring your fishing gear to lure walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, sauger, pan fish and channel catfish.

    The Lewis and Clark expedition has forever left its mark on this area with the story of Private George Shannon. Shannon, the youngest member of the expedition at 19 years old, became lost when he was sent to fetch strayed horses. Thinking the crew had moved up river, Shannon raced to meet the boats. When he was found exhausted and starving two weeks later, he quickly learned that the expedition had been downstream from him the entire time.

    Great view

    Beautiful view of the Missouri River. Very nice campground. Cabin was nice, clean with the exception of some dead flies in the corners and edges of the walls.

    Dangerous Pathway

    After visiting Buryanek in May 2020, I emailed and received an email back from Justin Thede. High waters and fallen trees has made it nearly impossible to access the river from the north end of the campgrounds. I offered a few solutions to repair the path, or to make a new one. Thede stated that we will "take into considerations my ideas". Well, absolutely NOTHING has been done. In fact, the situation is worse. Someone is going to get seriously hurt using the horrible obstacle course to try to get to the water. Why?? When someone gets injured, who is liable?? The State has been warned, and decided to absolutely nothing to remedy the mess. I'm sure Covid could be used as an excuse. Not in this case. If two state workers went out with a chain saw and a BobCat, in a couple of hours a safe, reliable, affordable path could be created. Again, someone is going to be hurt. Why?? Campers should be treated with respect and a heavy emphasis on safety. That is not the case here. Create a safe path. Humans are in danger - something that can easily be avoided.
