<1>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Balls Creek were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Balls Creek. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Balls Creek

<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Balls Creek), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
