  • It is a simple pleasure to walk in the woods on well worn trails and good fall weather. When we were only about 100 yards into the woods on the Lookout Trail, we must have startled what I think was.....  more »

  • 3 of us ladies who love the outdoors camped at Balsam for the weekend. The sites are really close together. Not a ton of privacy compared to other parks we have visited. The beach is really nice and.....  more »
  • Went once and fell I love with the place! Great place for families! Lake is awesome for swimming and kayaking (rentals are available). Lots of trails for walking. Camping sites are decent with washrooms close by. Definitely would go again.
  • Wow, it's a very popular and beautiful spot. We just went to go for a walk there over Thanksgiving weekend and can't believe how many people are there camping. It looks like a great community and plenty seen to be planning to stay until Halloween as their sites are already decorated. They have some very private sites as well as some that are right beside each other so you can mingle with your neighbors. The beach is pretty big with nice sand and 3 different roped off areas that looks like it's for different agree groups (there's a very shallow small area which i presume is for toddlers. They rent paddle boats and canoes. At the far southern end there's a pathway to a 1 pump gas station convenience store which seems to have everything you need. The guy working there is super friendly.
  • Very nice camping spot. Cozy sites. The faucets in the men's washroom at the Poplar comfort station needs to be changed. It's wasting lots of water and not hygienic as you need to hold the knob as you wash one hand. They should be replaced with faucets that have a built-in motion sensor. Beach was very nice and sandy. Customer service was great. Staff were smiling and very nice.
  • Favourite provincial park to camp in so far. The beach surprised us, actually a sandy beach! Lake water was warm once you got in and you could go probably 50 meters before the sand turned to seaweed. At the campsites we chose power without water. Washrooms were right next to us and all of our neighbours were cool. It's quiet and not far from two or three cute towns.
  • Very clean water and not too crowded. There are covered picnic areas that can be used. One can also book the whole picnic shed if there is a large group. There is also a volleyball net with sand underneath the feet. Space is also available for camping if one wants to camp overnight.
