If you’ve been looking for a fishing paradise, your search is over! When it comes to angling, the Lake of the Woods area is — year round — second to none in the Midwest. At Ballard’s, our motto is “Large Enough to Serve You, Small Enough to Know You,” and you’ll find that we’re committed to honoring that sentiment at all times. Whether it’s our comfortable and modern cabins, our beautiful and spacious lodge, or even our fully stocked restaurant, you’ll find that our goal is to make your fishing adventure as enjoyable as possible.
Of course, fishing isn’t the only attraction we have to offer. You’ll find a variety of recreational activities such as hiking, biking, wilderness drives, water sports, snowmobiling, golf, miles of sandy beach, and scenic seaplane flights. We are a four-season resort destination, and offer something for everyone.
Then again, it’s hard not to focus on the fishing when it’s this good! We’ve got guided trips that will show beginner and expert alike the top spots. While our summer fishing is outstanding in itself (we’re on the shore of a veritable walleye factory), our winter fishing is unbeatable, with our comfortable angling houses placed in all the perfect spots. Finally, we offer the Walleye Connection, a series of all-inclusive vacations (including round trip on a luxury coach) that are perfect for your family, private organization or business associates.
The Main Lodge
With the beautiful waterfront view, the lodge serves as an excellent gathering place to sit and converse with friends or to make new acquaintances. From an early morning breakfast to a late dinner, the lodge offers food and a full service bar. You may select a package plan that includes some or all of your meals.
