There is a beach for any kind of activity. There are places to kayak and see wildlife up close. The water is super warm. The beaches are well kept up. There are lovely walkways and plenty of places to stop

This south Okanagen gem has seen better times. I guess if your are in business there, then all good. Too many people on the lake, big boats no brain operators, too many everything on the water. Not really patrolled unless you illegally enter the US...More

Beautiful beach for a fall stroll, water was too chilly to go into for sure. Scenery is spectacular. There was lots of parking available and numerous spots to stop, not busy at this time of year.

We come once a year to get away and relax. Usually the first 2-3 weeks of October. Its time for the Grape harvest and Grape Festival. Most of the tourists have gone home so it is not near as congested as summer.

Osoyoos lake is a beautiful fresh-water lake with beautiful surrounding scenery. Although it is often windy with white-caps, there are also days with calm serene water perfect for going out in your kayak.

Sun Beach Motel is right on the water and is one of the only motels with a dock. It is also the only one that faces south. The rest face north onto the lake or to the east.
