“Natures amazing gift”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Spotted Lake is extraordinary. I would have liked to have access to at least walk closer. The local Band who now own it need to move forward to allow those genuinely interested in the healing qualities of the lake to also share this special place. Walk up and down the road and see it from all angles, depending on the angle of the sun the mineral deposits become more visible from different locations.

“Great to see!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

What a wonderful spectacle! Don't expect to get any closer than what you see in the photo, though. The lake is sacred, and you are not allowed to go any closer than several hundred metres away, from behind a fence.

“Rare and amazing sight.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have not seen anything like this before. The area too is very interesting but the actual Spotted Lake is fascinating. After the event everyone who sees photos of the Spotted Lake comments and asks questions about it. Truly unique experience. A must see in Osoyoos.

“under const.”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

I guess they are under construction or trying to raise more money for construction but there was a fence and a gate and a sign saying closed for phase one. The highway pulloff is dangerous.
