Okanagan Lake Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada. Established in 1955, the park covers a total area of 98ha.HistoryOkanagan Lake Provincial Park is not only known for its native flora but for the successful introduction of non-native flora. A few years after its creation, thousands of non-native trees were planted in the park, especially in barren slopes. The saplings have grown into large trees, filling the area between the highway and the lake, and providing a haven to several bird species.FloraThis area is a mix of grasslands, which are usually in the lower sections, and forests of ponderosa pine and Douglas fir that cover the upper sections of the park. Wildflowers such as chocolate lily and the Columbia lily also grow here.FaunaMany colonies of Columbian ground squirrel inhabit the park. There are also the docile and harmless gopher snakes, which often appear near the hiking trails. There is also a good population of bats in the park. There are also amphibian species here, such as the western toad and western painted turtle. The park's birdlife is also rich with birds such as cedar waxwings, quail, northern shafted flickers, western meadowlarks, hummingbirds and the Lewis's woodpecker.

  • Amazing and beautiful scenery. Very relaxing. I enjoy it every time I visit. Great hiking trails. I've seen people swimming here. Nice to spend a day checking everything out. Worth visiting.  more »
  • We camped at the north site and it was perfect for us. Super quiet, bathrooms were clean with toilet paper all the times and hand soap. It was a bit loud from the highway as we were camped right below...  more »

  • Small campsite but well maintained. Good washroom with free shower. I visit here every summer. I love it!!!
  • This is a great park . Some good walking trails and a boat launch . You can walk to the South campground and their is a big play ground . Lots of bath rooms and shower buildings. Water faucets through out the parks. No Sani-Dump .
  • Very well maintained campground, nice and clean washrooms and shower rooms, have play ground for kids safe for playing and biking around the site. The campsite closed and locked around 11pm and opens 7am and staffs are friendly..
  • The park sits at a beautiful location on Okanagan Lake, but unfortunately is next to Hwy 97 and can be a little loud at times. Some campsites are close to each other and a few have more privacy. Try and get a reservation.
  • Washroomd and shower have been updated, very clean campsites, would have given it 5 stars if they had full service campgrounds
