    Knowdafish, do you happen to know how accessable the road is presently? We are thinking of going there early next week, after seeing the great photos. Thanks (Note: we have an old 4 wheel dr suv).

    my recent visit in balanan was 5 months ago, the road was more or less half concreted starting from Siaton bridge. But, accessible with any kind of old wheels...
    weekend is usually very busy due to some local groups of government employee outings.
    An overnight stay is recommended, and a waterfalls after the lake is a must see...

    We visited the GADCENT facility last week, which is just down the hill from Balanan on the same road. The road is fine and is a mixture if dirt, gravel, and concreted sections. No problem in a 2 wheel drive, even if it's raining. The road is immediately after the long bridge that goes over the river south of Siaton. Turn right (west?) on that road and follow the river on up. It is a very scenic drive.

    Still no swimming allowed at Lake Balanan? If someone drowns in the US they don't close the lake to swimming..
