The lake is warm and beautiful. The wind storms come up on you though so check the forecast before going out boating.

Nice wide pathways, some with designated bike paths. Points of interest along the way with historical facts.

Beautiful beach for a fall stroll, water was too chilly to go into for sure. Scenery is spectacular. There was lots of parking available and numerous spots to stop, not busy at this time of year.

We come once a year to get away and relax. Usually the first 2-3 weeks of October. Its time for the Grape harvest and Grape Festival. Most of the tourists have gone home so it is not near as congested as summer.

Osoyoos lake is a beautiful fresh-water lake with beautiful surrounding scenery. Although it is often windy with white-caps, there are also days with calm serene water perfect for going out in your kayak.

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.
