Shuswap Lake, Salmon Arm

(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Covering an area of 310 sq km (120 sq mi), Shuswap Lake affords views of the surrounding area as well as four arms of calm water that make up the lake. Discover different parts of the huge lake by boat, or visit one of many surrounding parks located on the shore. Tall green hills encircle the water, which has an island in the middle. Engage in some of the popular water sports here, or hire a houseboat to navigate along the water. As with many other lakes, this one has its own local legendary monster, Shuswaggi.
