The water is warm in the summer. We sea-doo'd and paddle boarded. We went down to Gyro Beach on a Saturday afternoon and the beach wasn't busy at all. It was simply perfect.

This lake is amazing! It is so warm with sandy beaches and very shallow, you can walk out for a long distance and still only be waist deep. Very clean, clear water, great for swimming and water sports.

We had a wonderful time on the lake in Osooyos. There were plenty of shady spots to sit and a safe place for the the little ones to paddle in. The salads from the cafe were great too. And the view is incredible.

Very pleasant with warm water (for Canada) and relatively little boat traffic. Wind not bad. Water is not especially clear and the bottom is murky but no skin or other problems after going in.

Nice lake, good for water sports and fairly warm. Since this lake crosses into USA you only have half the lake to use, unless you check in with the border patrol which is time consuming.

Lovely, peaceful lake in Osoyoos, with gentle, small beaches, many shaded with trees. Great for an afternoon relaxing in a camp chair or having a picnic.

Sun Beach Motel is right on the water and is one of the only motels with a dock. It is also the only one that faces south. The rest face north onto the lake or to the east.
