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.

CAMP­ING

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.

DRIV­ING TIPS

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.
