This was our first visit to the lake and it was nice to see a few of the local birds in the water. The viewing platform is a great place to spend some time and wait for birds to show up!

We visited in July and although it was busy really enjoyed it. Easy to find and right off the highway. The trail isn't too long if you have kids, bring binoculars if you want to see the wildlife up close.

After hiking another trail in the area we decided to drive up to north end of Vaseux lake to visit the new birdviewing tower. So peaceful, a must if you are visiting area.

Right off of the highway, you can't miss the park but beware that there is always a lot of traffic, so it may not be the most peaceful getaway during summer.

Surrounded by sage and pine covered hills and mountains, this lake is non motorized due to the fact that it is a bird sanctuary. The waterfowl life is wonderful to observe and you will see everything from American Coots, swans, mallards, canvas backs, etc.. We...More
