Balsam Lake

As the only public-access lake not owned by the power company, Balsam is a tiny jewel in the heart of the Roy Taylor National Forest.

Built by Mead Corporation as a retreat for paper company executives, Balsam Lake was passed to the national forest in the early 1980s. Amenities include a public day-use picnic area and an accessible lakeside trail with accessible fishing piers. Also available is a reservation-only lodge that includes an accessible trail and pier. Search for Balsam Lodge at www.Recreation.gov for details.
