Beautiful lake. Sandy beaches. Sunshine. Loved our stay. Wish I could have spent more time at the lake.

As others have said, very warm and clean lake. The only thing I don't like is the ever increasing amounts of motorized water sports and boats every year that increase the general noise level and the constant scent of fumes wafting over got to be a bit much after a while. I really like what they did at Lake Balaton... More

We recently travelled to Grand Forks to pick up a beautiful Labraddoodle Puppy. We had stayed in Osoyoos the night before at Green Gables and dined at the restaurant at Hester Creek Winery. Both experiences were positive and I will Tripadvise on those places later. On the way back from Grand Forks with our new puppy, we stopped at the... More

We had read the reviews and the lake did not disappoint. It's very warm with plenty of room for waterskiing and tubing. There are many shallow beach areas along the shore to picnic. The lake and town are spectacular really.

Osoyoos lake is the warmest lake in Canada. Practically weed free and very shallow, so you and your children can wade out quite far. Sandy beaches which are well groomed. We go back every year.

When we recently visited Osoyoos this July the temperature was 42 - or 114 degrees Farhenheit. Wow it was hot. There's nothing like getting wet in the cool lake with a wonderful park in the heart of town. Nice concession stand, geese and ducks swimming in the water along with the folks cooling off... a few boats plying their way... More

A brilliant lake for all motorised water sports; shying, wakeboarding and jet skiing. Great place to learn paddle boarding.
