The lake is great to swim and for water sports. There are a variety of places to stay with some good budget deals. You can rent boats and toys to play. We regularly go over to a location we call Blender Bay. The boats all get together with our gas powered blenders and have a good time!

While visiting Osoyoos, we found a walking path along the shores of Osoyoos Lake, just a few minutes walk from downtown. The path is paved and there were two locations you could park and use the walkway. The lake is almost picture perfect, and as it is April, the lake is still cold, quiet, and beautiful to view.

I came down here to take some picture and just go for a walk along the lake. It's so nice and peaceful in the spring, although I don't recommend swimming yet lol

Very populated with tourists and locals in the summer, as you can imagine. Still a nice place for a swim, with public bathrooms/change rooms near the parking lot in town.

This gem is located in the very southern Okanagan valley, and is shared with the u.s.. Claimed as the warmest lake in Canada, And situated in Canada's only desert.. A great tourist spot in the summer, with a wide variety of resorts and camp groounds, that surround the lake.

Beautiful town, peaceful lake that is not overly crowded. A nice place to relax and play. Generally a safe town where your worries and stress melts away.

It was a pretty lake, and I can just imagine how popular it is during the summer months. I wouldn't say this is a super scenic lake, due to the many hotels all along the shore.

Even in October, Osoyoos lake is like a warm bath, so ideal for water sports. Our activities were centred around walking round the shore. Plenty to keep you interested, lovely scenery

It was dad. No boats or anything. It was the thanksgiving weekend and sunny yet barren. It seems people in the water were prepping their boats for winter. Nice small lake split in two sections by a tight narrow.
