Wade enjoyed time with his beloved dad Wally.
One Generation to Another
Today, the family legacy lives on through Wally’s three sons who have managed the station over the years. His eldest son, Wade, currently oversees operations of all aspects of station products and services, along with a hardworking team of fuel and service professionals at the front counter and behind the scenes. (Carlson BP has employed many Lakes area high school students in the C-store!)
Wade Carlson, like his dad and brothers before him, has always cared about the community Carlson BP serves. He has served on the Chisago Lakes school board, the Karl Oskar Days planning committee, and at Lakes Free Church. His wife Roxy taught third grade at Lakeside Elementary in Chisago City until her retirement.
Sitting on the eastern edge of town, the Carlson-owned gas station is a Lindstrom icon. Whether you stop in for BP gas, an oil change, or an ice-cold soft drink, it’s hard to miss the hometown feel of Carlson BP. And that’s just how Wally would want it.
