  • Great beach to launch a kayak or paddle board. Located on the north end of the lake it is at the edge of Invermere a quieter than the Kinsmen beach. Good amount of parking, facilities and great open s...  more »
  • We were so surprised to visit such a nice park right in town. We stopped for a picnic lunch and the water was so inviting we decided to go for a swim. The change rooms very clean. The beach and water'...  more »
  • We booked a VRBO next to this beach for a week so we could walk there. It's not nearly as busy as the Kinsmen Beach which is close by, but this one always has lots of parking, available picnic tables,...  more »

  • Beautiful little park. The children enjoy the beach slot. Great place for playing along the shore, okay place for swimming ( rocky shore, short beach). Great play park suitable for up to 12 y/o. Volleyball court is OK, there are bathrooms, and a connection to a very short nature trail. Parking is big and easy to access.
  • A busy park in the summer, because it has access to the lake. There is also walking path and kids play equipment. However, a lot of the beach is pebbles so not ideal for bare feet. You are about a block away from several restaurants for lunch though
  • We enjoyed our time at this recreation area (we were there mostly for the beach). There is a ton of parking, and a massive playground where our kids spent a lot of time. Honestly the only reason that I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that it feels more exposed and less intimate than Kinsmen beach, nearby. It's still a great recreation area. Same comment as my Kinsmen beach review, people don't seem to show up too early, so if you're there by noon you're getting a great parking spot (my observation).
  • We stopped here on our way through the area. It was a nice break and a good place for the kids to run around. It has a picnic area on the lake and a great little playground.
  • Great beach and was very shallow for a great distance. Great for kids to walk around without entering deep water. I would definetly come back for another visit. Unfortunately it is not dog friendly.
