Established in 1955, Okanagan Lake Provincial Park is an emblem of planning and foresight in the area. At a comfortable 98 hectares, this park is small enough to enjoy to the fullest and offers a strong focus on beaches and lake access at both of its campground sites. This park can experience strong winds, so visitors should come prepared for that.
Activities at this park include canoeing and kayaking on the lake, designated swim areas, and freshwater fishing for anyone with an appropriate license. Active water sports like water skiing and windsurfing are also permitted away from the shoreline. Pets are technically allowed in some areas, but may not interact well with the wildlife at the park.
Local facilities include a boat launch at the southern campground, cold water taps, and both pit toilets and flush toilets. Each campground has a shower building with separate men’s and women’s sides. The southern campground is generally more accessible, both in terms of disability access and overall features.
Camping opportunities include 176 spots between the campgrounds. The northern park has larger areas, while the southern park mostly has smaller, less private locations. Shopping opportunities are available in the summer months at the south park and include cold drinks, ice cream, basic supplies, and some groceries.
