One of our favourite places to go for a day picnic and beach fun for family. We always take our out of town guests there for a walk, swim off the rocks. A great place for camping., if you can get a spot. Beautiful Okanagan!

One of our favourite spots for getting outdoors close to town! Enjoy the mountains and access to the lake but beware it's a hoof down if you aren't ready for the walk.

Ellison Provincial Park is located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Scenic British Columbia. We were hunting for a washroom and a picnic spot with scenery and a water view, we found it here. What is not to love even on an overcast day?
