“Pretty Enough”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Large lake with lots of activities especially in the summer. New marina in Kelowna along with a new Yacht Clubhouse being built. A number of restaurants along its front so dining options quite good.

“Come here and there is a high risk you will not want to leave”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

That is what happened to me. I visited seven years ago as part of a golfing foursome, playing five courses in five days and some twice in a day. I was so impressed with the beauty of the Okanagan in summer that I bought a house on a hillside overlooking a golf course (Sunset Ranch). I still have the house and my wife and I visit as often as we can.

“Nice Summerland beach at Lake Okanagan”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

On our way to Kelowna from Ososyosos, we stopped off at Summerland beach. Really nice beach/picnic area. The public washrooms had granite countertops! If you need a break from driving, this is a great place to stop at

“You will fall in love with it.”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

This lovely lake stretches between Penticton to Vernon. It is very deep. 400' in some spots. Great place for boating and water sports. Many yatch clubs and marinas. I love the lake around Kelowna. Take the kids tubing and then anker at Gyro beach. The water is shallow and provides a fun and safe spot for kids to swim. I just love this lake.

“The Canadian Riviera”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

What is not to Like. The expansive lake with unlimited activities, boating to para-sailing, or just sit back on a beach and enjoy the day! The many towns and hamlets not to mention the City of Kelowna are all beautiful and provide visitors with fun, food entertainment galore. We have been there many times and plan to visit many more!
