  • Boring. Yes it is the warmest lake in the Okanagan. The towns (Oliver, Osoyoos) however are desolate terrible places. You'll want to spend time in Osoyoos, because Oliver has a lack of tourist shops. Osoyoos has the main road, and that's probably the most fun you will have. However the wine tastings would be fun without children.
  • Wow ! This place is great. Everyone should move here. But then there would be too many and crowded . So shhhhhhh
  • Cottonwood Beach could be kept cleaner by the town. There are two doggie beaches in Osoyoos one on Lake at White Sands and one on Lakeshore Drive. Dog Owners should have to use these instead of our public beaches!!!!!!
  • This is a resort town all because of the warmest lake in all Canada. nestled in the middle of Canada's only desert. lots of camping. lots of resorts but book early.
  • Warmest lake in Canada Stunning.
