Endless Summer Fun in Kawartha Lakes Region

Escape the constant grind of city life with a week at the rustic, charming cottages of Balsam Resort in the Kawartha Lakes region in Southern Ontario. Put your line in the water and catch a mammoth walleye, bass, or muskie. Spend quality time with the family around a giant campfire. Hop into a canoe or paddle-boat with a best friend or significant other. Come visit the Kawartha Lakes region for fun in the sun, relaxation, and a little adventure on one of the trails, waterways, or islands. Relax, do nothing, or indulge yourself--that’s Balsam Resort’s motto.

Fishing in the Kawartha Lakes region is top notch, and sure to offer thrills to everyone from rookie to seasoned anglers. Balsam Lake is particularly well known for its bass fishing (smallmouth and largemouth) but don't be surprised to catch a walleye, muskie, or panfish. You can throw a line in off the dock or rent a boat and head for deeper waters.
