Burnett is an unincorporated community in Pierce County, Washington, United States. It is located just south of Buckley, Washington. It is on State Route 165 between Buckley, Washington and Mt. Rainier National Park. It is located at (47.12944, -122.04778).

Burnett was named for Charles Hiram Burnett, Sr. a pioneer coal industrialist and real estate investor who operated a coal mine in the town of Burnett.

The town has only two stores and one church. The two stores are both owned by the Argo family. The first store is named simply, The Burnett Store. It is a convenience store and has been in operation since July 1977. The second store called the Pinch Plum sells antiques.

The Burnett Store was the subject of a song written by Blaine Larsen and his friends entitled The Burnett Store Song, in which they extol the virtues of their favorite boyhood hangout. It can be found on Larsen's self released album entitled Tracks From The Barn Part Two.
