Balsam Lake

Just wondering if anyone has been to Balsam Lake Provincial Park? Thoughts on the beach? I heard it gets busy with people just coming for the day.

Thanks!

Balsam Lake Provincial park does get pretty busy during the summer hours. If the weather is nice and hot the beach will get crowded. The beach itself is very, very nice.....and fairly big and well kept. I dug up a few photos so you can see for yourself....

Sorry Steffie. I really can't recommend any sites. I camped there once about 20 years ago. Maybe have a look at the site map of the campground and pick one that looks kind of private, if that's what you're after. I do remember that they're not super private but not too bad either. You should have a nice time there.
