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.

“Such a Scenic Drive”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The Lake is a "must see" while in Kelowna. It truly adds to the marvelous scenery of this very pretty city set in the midst of the mountains and the Lake.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This lake is long and wide. It is perfectly calm, and very picturesque. Many resorts are right on the lake. One problem is the noise the motor boats cause. There was even some idiot o his boat playing loud rap music at 6.30am. Hotels vary widely in cost and quality. So check them all out. I recommend renting a home for as long as you want.

“SEASONLESS”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The view is always stunning. Best time to go is...anytime! Many beach access points are not even listed on the free Kelowna map so look around. Sand, pebbles, grass...your choice.

“Rotary Park, a peaceful spot”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

On our Sept holiday in Kelowna, we really enjoyed sitting in our lawnchairs at Rotary Park, looking at the water and mountains backdrop plus the windsurfing and other sports activities on the lake. Parking is close and convenient. Yes, Gyro Park is bigger and more active, for the younger crowd, but we find Rotary Park a lovely spot to just sit quietly and read a book....under a beautiful (willow?) tree, with a soft cool breeze blowing. How do you spell tranquility? We found it here.
