North Carolina's Balsam Lake is the Perfect Spot to Fish, Kayak, and Canoe

Balsam Lake is a great warmer-weather spot to canoe, kayak or fish, and a year round opportunity to walk the paths. The area is also a special access point for people with mobility issues. Handicap accessible paths and fishing piers make it one of the few places like it in the region that is suitable for all anglers of all abilities. A Recreation Day Use Area near the 8-acre Balsam Lake offers picnic shelter and vault toilet. Non-motorized boats are permitted. The fishing piers, trail and toilet are accessible.

Balsam Lake’s shores are also home to the Balsam Lake Lodge, which has 16 bunks and is available for vacation rentals. http://bit.ly/BalsamLakeLodge
