The lake is beautiful and the public beaches are clean and well maintained. We rented a pontoon boat, toured the shoreline and swam in different areas. We were there for Canada Day and the celebrations were fun and the fireworks display was inspirational.

It's very beautiful looking out over the lake. We always like staying at the Walnut Beach Resort which is right on the lake.

Beautiful lake, but the water was very high this year, so we couldn't take our dog to the beach. There are nice grassy areas.

We went back for a long weekend and the water level was high so the lake looked beautiful. It isn't a deep lake so in the summer it doesn't look as nice! It is a great place for a family vacation, so much water activities...More

Driving into Osoyoos on highway 3 from the south east is when you first catch a glimpse of this lake nestled in the valley. Whether you are in downtown Osoyoos, at NK'Nip Winery, at the Cottages, or anywhere else the lake reflects the gorgeous sage...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.
