Lake Okanagan is one of the primary lakes in the Okanagan Thompson region of B.C. There are loads of public beaches that are free to visit and swim in. The water is clean and clear and much warmer than some other regions in Canada.

Nothing beats Lake Okanagan. It is such a beautiful scenic lake and a perfect way to spend the day whether you are on the water on a boat, or on one of the beautiful beaches surrounding it. The water is very mild and very clear!
