Owner description: If you spot Ogopogo, the legendary lake monster said to inhabit these waters, you'll make headline news, but other than that, you're sure to enjoy all the recreational activities this 82-mile long lake has to offer: swimming, boating, parasailing and all types of water sports.

“Once of nicest lakes I have ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is the reason I moved to the Okanagan. Great for swimming, fishing and relaxing.

Many local events take advantage of the lake, the annual Cross the Lake Swim, the Apple Triathlon Swim Course, the local out rigging/canoeing club events etc.

There are many boat, paddle board and Seadoo rental companies too.

If you come at the right time of the year you can watch the Canada Day Fire works or watch Canada's Snowbird Air acrobatic team perform over the lake too.

“Okanagan Lake and Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The Okanagan area of BC is beautiful. Crystal blue lakes, semi-desert cliimate, miles of beautiful scenery, developing hoodoos, hundreds of great wineries, golf courses, outdoor hiking, trail riding, camping, too many activities to list. It is a paradisical area.

“It's what makes the Okanagan beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Drive around it. Walk beside it. Boat on it. Love it. Been coming here all my life and it is truly a jewel - especially if you are lucky enough to see it from the sky on a shimmery sunny morning.
