It was a nice visit there seeing some friends as well, but there are alot of wierd weird folks there as well, kinda creepy. But the place is nice to visit but only in summer time. Rest of time is a boring town.

You can live in the area for years and still have a hard time seeing the entire shore line of the Shuswap. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and beaches, Shuswap lake is a great place to take the family and friends!

How lucky are we to discover this amazing lake with fun for all ages from houseboat rentals, to water skiing, paddle boarding, wave riding etc. The beaches are great with safe swimming areas in Blind Bay and all through the Arms.
