We swam, we paddled, we went for walks and runs. Got an eFoil lesson and got a coach on our boat. Great experience.

The lake is beautiful. Mountains in the background. Great for swimming in and or doing water-sports. Beautiful sunsets too!

Beautiful place, but I've never seen a cop for years. I went there on July 19th and an old smelly noisy boat took over the whole waterfront and everyone just sat around staring. Some packed up and left the beach. Later that day I tried to cross the lake near the pile-ons near Hanes Point. Boats speed through the swimming areas. People jumping off the bridge into the water. That's stupid and unsafe. No law enforcement anywhere.

Osoyoos, and Osoyoos Lake, were the #2 "Things-to-See" on our recent mainland BC road trip, and BOTH sites did not disappoint us!
A really lovely town, very clean, with a great tourist vibe. And Osoyoos Lake, especially from top of the hill, is just breaktaking. Well done Osoyoos! Cheers, Paul

Warmest lake in Canada. So many beaches to enjoy, many of them dog friendly. Wonderfully lake to swim in, but also a great lake for any watersports. And when you are done in the water you have all of Osoyoos to explore.

Osoyoos Lake is a gem, we love visiting here and staying for vacations! Loads of beach areas to lay around or swim in, plenty of parking, and hot, very, very hot in the summer!!

We have always found that this lake is in a unique valley setting, sadly it was smoky or slight haze during our time here. Lot's to see & do during your time here!

I came here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This place is just like Surrey. It’s a real dump.

Walking along the lake shore was such a wonderful relaxing and de-stressing experience. It did help, the time of year did help create this tranquility for us. I would seriously recommend a walk along the lake in the off season. It really cleared out my mind of all the "junk" that was there.
