Rented sea-doos for the family. Had a gret time ripping around on the lake. Rented them during the weekdays which was nice as the lake was a little less busy. So many activities to choose from.

It is a nice lake, but... We visited during summer of 2014 with boat for our sons and paddle board for me. Lots of boats so the water was never great for the kids to wakeboard with all the waves.

Very scenic view from the walkway along the lake. Nice park to walk or just sit and look at the lake. Nothing to dislike.

Our initial tour operator contacted us to cancel our tour at the last minute. The front desk of Spirit Ridge helped us out to find another operator. We were given names of a couple of companies and after speaking with Steven Mifsud from Moxie Tours decided to go with him. I am glad we did. His knowledge of the area,... More

Lake Osoyoos is warm and a great lake for swimming. There are opportunities for boating as well and it is large enough for explorations and windsurfing.
