The wife and I paddled out from Cottonwood Park to Lion's Park. It's probably true, the lake might well be Canada's warmest. It's lovely. And the surrounding mountain views make it well worth it. Some knuckle-draggers on seadoos kept zipping around on what was possibly/probably...More

This is a great lake located in the downtown area. Recommend to everyone to take a little time for a quick stroll along the waters edge. Parking is free, so you can enjoy the sites & sounds. It was a hot time of the year.

This is a nice long narrow lake with sandy (sometimes mucky) and pebbled bottom. There are a few public beaches here, some of which actually look man made, and most areas have beach access reserved for their property only. Most public areas are quiet and...More

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.
