“Great place to see deer!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

After driving over 2000kms through the rockies, Spotted Lake is where we finally saw deer! There was a half dozen of them grazing in the trees near the lake. I remember driving past as a kid and having the cool lake pointed out to me, it was great taking my own kids to show them. it was too hot when we were there to explore the area, but the pull off and signage made for an easy quick stop.

This is a highway pull off view attraction (15 minutes?) of the coolest natural 'phenomenon'. Make sure to stop.

“Must see!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Spotted Lake is a special destination for the Indigenous Peoples and for locals alike. The Penticton and Osoyoos Indian Bands have done an amazing job of taking care of the location for all to share. Have seen during the day and during the night - Spotted Lake viewed by moonlight is amazing. Don't miss out. Unforgettable.

“Worth a Stop”
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)
