Area Attractions

"Balsam Bay Resort is in the heart of the Minnesota wilderness and yet when we visited we also enjoyed the charming small towns, nearby Northern Lights Casino, and a variety of golf courses. We even hit the Judy Garland Museum on the way home. Great vacation!!"

Nestled in the southeast corner of the 650,000 acre Chippewa National Forest, Balsam Bay Resort is just a short
drive from shopping, dining, golf courses, historical and recreational sites. Play a round of golf, take in the sites, or
check out the wildlife. The Chippewa National Forest has the largest population of nesting bald eagles in the lower 48.
