“Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

A very unusual natural phenomenon. The time of day and weather will be a big factor in how spectacular the lake looks when you stop. There is a gated road entrance on the south side of the highway 8 km ( 5 miles) west of the Osoyoos visitor centre. If you are heading east, you will see the lake before you get to the gated road. There is a better viewing spot about 100 meters (yards) east of the gated road. There is an unmarked dirt road going off the highway (dangerous to turn in if there is traffic). It goes a short distance to a viewpoint. Perhaps this is where the Indian band whose land the lake is on plans to put up an information sign ( which would be very helpful)

“A Phenomenal Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

An intriguing spectacle for all to see. Nestled in a small valley within viewing distance from the highway is this weird looking lake. It's covered n multi-coloured circles that were different shades of green and yellow. Soooo interesting. Thre are apparently 365 rings.

“Worth a quick look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

If you are passing the Spotted Lake on your way to Osoyoos it is worth a quick stop to have a look at this unusual phenomenon. It only takes a few minutes to have a look and take a couple of photos.

“Unexpected gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is simply so unusual you have to make the 10 minute trek to see it. Really. I have never seen or heard of anything else even remotely close to this, and you will simply never forget it. Expanded parking is coming, but certainly, pull over, get out of your vehicle, take a few photos and just listen & look in silence. We simply were amazed.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Great to stop and see, its right off the hwy. Unfortunately you are not to walk down to the lake itself but a great view from the view point.
