We always have so much fun on the lake. This year we rent Sea Doos. Three adults with 3 teens on the back. So much fun for the over an hour. A must on the lake if you don't have your own "Lake Wheels"

Best lake i have seen in ALL of Canada! This place feels like you are in California or Nevada. You will love it. So unCanadian....and not in a bad way. No other place like it. Go there!

Since Osoyoos is BC"s only Desert area the Lake here which spans BC and Us border is very warm in the summer. Is very much a Family vacation area and for the Adults there are the Winery tours. There is all the water sports you want when your here and hotels line the shore so you do not have to... More

Probably much busier in summer as apparently the water temps are much warmer than many other B.C. lakes. In October, it provided a lovely backdrop to any outdoor activity and it had many flat walking paths all over Osoyoos, which is located right on this lake. Great place for moms with strollers (lots of play areas along the lakeside paths),... More
