Because the lake is not adjacent to any major highways or large population centers, it does seem fairly wild and remote. That said, there are maybe 20,000 residents that live nearby, but because the lake is over 60 miles in length there's a lot of uninhabited shoreline. It's surrounded by high mountain peaks, snow-capped for much of the year. If recreation and scenery are your thing, check this lake out, it's pretty spectacular.

We just purchased a little cabin steps off Twin Bay Beach on Kootenay Lake. We just love it . Crystal clear water, sandy beach, protected bays, super friends community and all round amazing vacation home. So far it seems to be a locals only place to come and hang out. Lets hope it can stay that way for a long time.

I went for a relaxation course at Yasodhara Ashram at the beautiful Kootenay Lake. The retreat gave me time to reflect and enjoy serenity and beauty. I loved the whole experience, top knotch accommodations and the meals were delicious.

The wife and I came up for a long weekend to Nelson and Ainsworth hot spring. Kootenay lake is beautiful but it's also a little cold as its a pretty big lake. They rent steel ships at Kaslo shipyard

Book ahead camping at Kokanee Provincial Park. Tent, camper or tent trailer. Bring your bikes and hiking shoes. Great day trip (July- September) a full day (or overnight at Kokanee Lodge, bookings ahead required or tent outside with mozzies). Free ferry ride over to Kootenay Bay. Day trip to Ainsworth hotsprings (great french onion soup) on the way back from a day touring in Kaslo. Head to Nelson for a couple of days shopping and coffee drinking at the infamous Osso Negro (up Ward street).
