Have come here many times with our boat, and very much enjoy boating on Lake Okanagan. There are countless areas one can boat to, and even more interesting activities and amenities along the shoreline. Never a dull moment and spectacular scenery.

Something magical about this place. Every time I come I have such a good time no matter which time of year. The lake is glorious with a boat and the vineyards are loads of fun.

Glad this lake still has a lot of shore areas kept natural and agricultural and commercial development is kept minimal. Hope Kelowna keeps it that way.

Lots of public entrances and a dog beach that is on a trail bases down Lake Ave. Wish Kelowna had more dog beaches with sand. Still Kelowna works hard to keep their beaches clean and services available to the public.

At 135 km in length, with three major cities and several smaller communities dotted along its shores, there is literally something for everyone here no matter what your interests are.

This lake is huge and very deep. We rented a boat and spent 8 hours tubing, skiing and wakeboarding. Certainly you need to be on the water to appreciate what Okanagan has to offer. Beautiful landscape, modern lake houses, hot weather. Just an eye candy!

When you drive along highway 97, it’s amazing how nice the scenery is. Many spots for you to park on the side to enjoy some scenery and beaches.
