Take a kid fishing…

As parents we want to do the right thing. We want to connect with our kids…

And have a positive impact on their future. That’s why Ballard’s Resort wants to work with you. We know that kids won’t be kids forever. And introducing your son or daughter to the outdoors is something that doesn’t take a lot of time or money.

An ice fishing adventure on Lake of the Woods can teach patience, respect, and value. It’s a shared tradition that mixes fun and fishing. For the winter of 2016 Ballard’s Resort will be offering its regular ice fishing packages at a 50% rate for kids 12 and under.

Call for details. Your “parent of the year” award is waiting.
