Access to roads, the campground and boat ramp at Burchard Lake Wildlife Management Area in Pawnee County may be closed temporarily due to a road repair project there this fall.
This project consists of improvements to the interior WMA road, WMA campground road and to a portion of 615 Avenue from Highway 4 to the WMA.
Burchard Lake is closed annually to all access Oct. 15 through Jan. 14, except walk-in access for bank fishing along the perimeter of the lake during open water and ice fishing when safe ice exists.
Camping is only allowed in designated areas. The area is closed to all firearms and all hunting. Closures to the campground and interior road prior to Oct. 15 will be done by posting temporary signs and barricades so road improvements can be completed.
