We like to think of Kelowna and our Okanagan Lake as a little piece of heaven. What is more beautiful than sitting by the lake in the evening enjoying a wonderful sunset off the water? What is better than frolicking in water on a hot sun filled day, or laying back on the beach reading a great book? Camping by the lake waking up to breakfast while the sun comes up over the waters horizon. The peace and calm from a quiet summers evening or just a whole bunch of fun playing beach volleyball with all your friends and family.

We have many fabulous parks that offer barbeque sites, picnic areas, change rooms and snack facilities, boat launches that will allow you to spend the whole day with family and friends making new and wonderful memories to share. This is one of the things that the kids will remember as a special time - everyone loves the beach.

For those who love the water and want to participate in some of the various water sports you will find it all available. Parasailing, boat & jet ski rentals, water skiing, boogie boarding, tubing it’s all there just waiting for you to enjoy.
