Boating, Jet skiing, Wake boarding, all on a lake with a great temperature and great people. My personal favorite was tubing off the back of the boat, just make sure that you are ready for an exciting thrill!

They have a park host at the little lake park at Brookvale. He is mean and has a bad attitude and makes it impossible for you to have a nice day. He hates dogs, and is mean.

The lake is very calm and serene situated in a valley between two mountain ranges thus creating fantastic views. Orchards and wineries are plentiful.Great for boating and all water activities skiing, paddle boarding, kiyaking etc. Also free boat trailer park and storage for out of town visitors
Haynes Point juts almost across lake and has numerous campsites suitable for tenting and R.V.s No hook ups but right on the waters edge and is a Government campground
Gyro Beach is the most popular beach in Osoyoos is well maintained has an outdoor band stand and many different functions going on in the summer The worst beach in Osoyoos is
off Cottonwood Drive on the east side of the lake. Sandy but dirty with all kinds of debris in the sand not maintained by the town at all.
Population goes from 5000 to 20000 in summer.so is advisable to make your accomodation reservations well in advance.

This lake is the warmest lake in Canada all year round the views over the lake are breathtaking. Hotels are all situated right on the lakeside with beach access, the wildlife is amazing to watch. This place is very relaxing and at sunset very romantic if with that special person. Daybreak is also not a let down the views over the lake are awesome. We will return. That is a fact.
