WHEN TO TRAVEL
To avoid the blistering summer heat, the best time to visit Lake Ballard is during the cooler months of April to October.
The lake’s campground has self-composting toilet facilities. Fire restrictions apply from November to March, and campers need to provide their own firewood. No drinking water is available.
The wide gravel roads are generally in good repair and are best suited to a 4x4. Beware of occasional potholes and washouts, and use extreme caution in the wet.
