Stopped here on a family road trip. I don't know about it being the warmest lake in bc. Osoyoos was warmer the day before. Quite a few rocks on the way in and it's a gradual drop off so maybe wear some water shoes. Lots of picnic tables to sit at. Change rooms, bathrooms, lots of parking and tons of... More

Recreation for all family members is the essence of Christina Lake. Hiking (all levels), golfing, cycling (road and mountain), every water sport one can imagine in 25C/78F water, accommodations to suit the adventurous who like to tent on beaches or for the ones who like more comfy settings like motels and RV spots. Christina Lake is a home grown resort... More

Built without any support from Provincial money, the citizens and businesses of Christina Lake have created a beautiful Welcome Centre. It's stunning...the floor is a huge piece of art! They have some local artists wares in the gift shop/gallery, an information area about the wildlife, etc. around the lake...and Lisa's Bistro is there as well...indoor/outdoor seating.

Went out to the lake just to sit and relax while staying in Grand Forks. Found a quiet beach to hang out at and went for a small bite and ice cream at the corner ice cream stand. Great spot, need to go back to explore

beautiful views, great lake for boating, tubing, camping. The town of Christina Lake really only operates during May Long weekend to Thanksgiving. Most amenities are closed for winter. Beautiful golf course. Great summer camping.

Christina Lake is a must visit and see if you are traveling through this area. One of the reviewers captured it perfectly - beautiful lake and lifelong memories. The water is clean and clear. The beach is long and wide with great sand. Good selection of picnic tables which are hard to find at most places. There are great walking... More

I have been fortunate enough to stay at Christina Lake for 3 wonderful summers of my life so far, and to me it's paradise! The warm, clear water...the mountainous forest landscape...the beautiful sunset... Coming from the UK, it has been the ultimate Canadian experience. There's so much to do - swimming, kayaking, motor boating, hiking, fishing, campfires and just relaxing... More
