Lake Okanagan is one of the largest, most beautiful lakes we have ever seen. As it winds through British Columbia it lengthens and widens providing panoramas too lovely to capture on film.

We return to this lake every July, and are never disappointed. From the beaches to City Park. There is always lots to see and do. The water is great for swimming and even better for boating. Absolutely beautiful views from every angle and find it very relaxing. Highly recommended!

The best place to sit & watch the boats & people enjoying their time in the water. The promenade along the lake is to die for. So much going on & the lake is sooo beautiful.

Staying in Kelowna, on two separate days we traveled to both ends of the Lake. Beautiful scenery on both drives and had lunch at each end-once in Vernon and twice in Penticton. Highly recommend the drive. Roads do not exist to circumnavigate the Lake.

This lake is stunningly beautiful, deep blue, and massive. There are a ton of nice beaches. It is great for water skiing and other water sports, including fishing.
