Balaton

The picturesque city of Balaton is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Yankton. A place for all seasons, Lake Yankton provides swimming, boating, fishing, and picnic areas in the summer and ice fishing in the winter. Two residential developments on the east edge of town provide country living in the city. The city of Balaton owns the Colonial Manor Nursing Home and the Lakeview Senior Housing complex, Eastbay 9 Golf Course, and three parks. We feel we have a lot to offer anyone, who would like to visit or move here. There is only ONE Balaton in the USA.
