The entrance to Lock 28 is hidden when boating up Stony Lake from Young's Point, therefore reduce speed and watch for discharge from the dam. Lock 28 offers a great boat launch.

Facilities and services
Burleigh Falls lockstation
Constructed: 1882-1887

Burleigh Falls was used in the 1800s for log drives during the spring melt. In 1882 the contract for a flight lock was awarded to George Goodwin. Wooden dams, later rebuilt in concrete, raised water levels but flooded out islands upstream. The flight lock was replaced with a single concrete lock in 1967 eliminating the number 29 from the system.
