Lake Okanagan is one of the prettiest lakes in B. C. I believe it has now become a tourist spot. Lots to do. All kinds of water sports. Parks functions all summer long. Mild winters. Great wine.

We are from Vancouver, but travel up to this lake at least twice a year. A stop at Summerhill Winery... More

I really enjoy the Lake Okanagan area with the wine country everywhere. I stayed at the Lake Okanagan Resort and it was better than some of the reviews I had read. Except for the road closure due to blast which is a real pain. Check it out if you have not been lately.
