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.

We have been out on the lake on a boat, enjoying the water for swimming and just relaxing. If you do not have a moor-age it might be hard to get your boat in. But there are many beaches, too.

We first discovered this area of Canada when we enrolled our son at the Penticton Hockey Camp (we are from the San Francisco, California Bay Area). We came every summer for seven years with other hockey families, and all of us absolutely fell in love with the place! We enjoyed the activities surrounding the lake, the wine country, the beauty of the area, and most of all the friendliness of our Canadian neighbors. Whenever Canada comes up in conversation, I sing the praises of our vacations in this area. I hope we can return in the near future!

Lake Okanagan is beautiful at any time of year. There are some nice walking trails that meander along the shore. Okanagan Centre beach area is a great place to take photos and enjoy the views. The water can get rough at times, stirring up some surprising waves. Be cautious if you venture out on the water, the weather can change quickly.

The lake is a perfect place for fishing , houseboating, waterskiing, etc. There are countless beaches and parks all around it. The parks have activities going on all summer long, such as concerts, dragonboat racing, a wakeboard festival and vendors.
If you don't spend some time around this huge lake when you're in the Okanagan, then you've really missed out on one of Kelowna's best attractions.
