4.0
#4 of 7 in Parks in Summerland
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.

  • Okanagan south campground is right on the lake and this was approx our 5th or 6th time camping here. Unfortunately all day and night we were getting STRONG wafts of sewage through our campsite. It was really unpleasant and was so strong it woke me up! Very little separation between campsites. At 8:00 the next day we had campers who wanted too check in to our site early surround our car and watch us pack. Not the campgrounds fault, but really rude. * I'd like to add that we have liked the campground in the past. The washrooms/showers are great. The playground is great and access to the water can't be beat. This most recent trip was unfortunate, but I would stay here again, just further away from the bathroom.
  • Beautiful place for families with little kids. Lots of fun.
  • There are 2 campgrounds connected by trail. North campground has very spacious lots, unlike South where all lots are very close to each other. Very nice place with several swimming spots. There is a dog beach too.
  • Excellent campground for families with kids. Spacious sites with more privacy than most campgrounds in this area. Playground, fishing lessons and movie nights. Well maintained with free showers and flush toilets.
  • The guy that came around was rude and refused us wood to keep kids warm saying locked up. beautiful view and waterfront.. awesome park but smelt like septic by it
