Lake Okanagan, Kelowna

4.7
#2 of 95 in Parks in Okanagan Valley
Explore Lake Okanagan, a large body of water located in a provincial park. With a surface area of 351 sq km (136 sq mi), the lake was formed by the movement of glaciers, slowly carving the wide, deep basin. Numerous hiking routes across the park link up the many sandy and pebbly beaches dotted around the shoreline, ideal for a refreshing swim in the cool waters of the lake. Move around the park by boat, finding new perspectives on the dramatic scenery from on the water. See Lake Okanagan and all Kelowna has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kelowna day trip app .

  • Lake Okanagan is a cast and beautiful lake which feels as though you are on the ocean. Mountains and hills surround it plus vineyards and orchards. In some parts it resembles Europe.  more »

  • This a beautiful area of Beautiful British Columbia. Not only is the lake itself gorgeous but the whole area around it is like paradise. Vineyards and fruit farms abound and there's no shortage of things to do especially from spring through fall. My only warning would be that the lake gets very busy in the summer with boat traffic etc. It's a very popular recreational lake.
  • Beautiful landscapes, restaurants, friendly people. Great experience!
  • Love this place. Could use more Marine gas stations.
  • It's a nice lake lmao. People that haven't lived here all their lives would call it beautiful or something. Remember to wear sunscreen or pay the price for like 2 weeks afterwards.
  • Very beautiful place to visit. Excellent for vacation/camping
