Our favourite place to stay is at one of the provincial campgrounds located on the lake as we enjoy camping with the family. There are many day parks yo can visit to enjoy the lake and do a bit of...

An absolutely beautiful area, gorgeous little places running for kilometers along the lakes edges, with mountains in the background. A lovely looking spot to holiday

just a gorgeous lake, I've spend a decent amount of time in salmon arm and loved being on the lake. Stay away from waterways if you are going houseboating through. Their customer service is attrocious

You'll be sitting on the dock inhaling fumes for 3-4 hours before being allowed to leave and up to 5 hours idling outside their dock because they're understaffed. You'll have people screaming over the radio about how they're missing appointments and flights as well. The engine has to be running the entire time because the battery will die and you'll... More

A wonderful getaway from metro Vancouver, with our friends, both of our families with kids. A beautiful lake, and lots of things to see and do around the vast lake. Unfortunately, many places seem to have closed, namely the Scotch Creek Family Fun Centre (near where we stayed). The lake itself, especially at the Provincial Park, was gorgeous and pleasant...

The Shuswap lake is beautiful. It is a very large lake with lots of great cabins and great boating opportunities.

An amazing family vacation spot, terrible time booking a camping spot but if you can reserve one its worth it! Biking is the main attraction for my kids followed by the lake and going for icecream :)

We received the worst customer service when using this company for a stag/stagette weekend. We got the early board so we could leave first thing in the morning after a 8 hour drive to get there. We arrived at 630PM for the early board and did the orientation. We were ready to get on the boat at 7PM but they... More

This lake offers beautiful clear and clean water and breathtaking views. With its sheer size you never feel overcrowded. A true British Columbia gem.
