Welcome to Balsam Lake

Experience the spirit of beautiful Balsam Lake for yourself. Balsam Lake is nestled along Highway 46, four miles north of US Hwy 8 in Polk County, Wisconsin. We are just over an hour drive from the Twin Cities metro area, and are a favorite Wisconsin fishing destination.

Balsam Lake is a year-round vacation destination. Water sports, golf, shopping, hunting, and snowmobile trails are many of the amenities of our quaint lake town. We invite you to relax in one of our local restaurants and stroll through the Polk County Museum


There is a vibrant and growing business community in Balsam Lake to add to its charm. We have over 50 businesses that line the shores of the lake including resorts, motels, bait and tackle, grocery, chiropractic care, hardware store, gas stations and specialty stores.

Our community is yours to embrace, just as we have. We invite you to explore the possibilities of life in a small town atmosphere with economic growth potential.
