“Love this Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2015 NEW

I grew up houseboating on this lake and it is like home to me. Never disappoints. Swimming in the water is like covering yourself with silk. So different than Ontario lake water. Lots to do in the Shuswap and Central Okanagan

“Beautiful lake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2014

We rented a houseboat with friends and stayed on the lake. The lake has a ton of shoreline to explore and the scenery is amazing! We drove from Seattle and it was about 7 hours but well worth the drive. The lake is very clean because it cycles itself out often. A must see in British Columbia!

“Herald Park, great campground!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014

The Shuswap lake is great, big campsites, Margaret Falls is very scenic and make sure you take the trail up and around the back of the falls too. Signs say it's closed but only because the bridge has a few rotten boards. Easy to get safely around and the bridge is on a couple of feet above the creek.

Lot's of bears in the fall, so be bear smart.
