If you prefer or want to try old fashioned camping, this is the park to explore and enjoy! This hidden gem is on a beautiful secluded lake in the Okanagan Highland east of Osoyoos. It is noted for its fishing (rainbow trout), swimming, sunbathing, and hiking to various scenic viewpoints, including along the lake and to a gorgeous waterfall.
There are 2 access routes, both narrow & winding on forest service road but, if you are game, you won’t be disappointed!! Best suited for trucks and campers. Access off Hwy 3 is the better route (26 kms). 2nd route is off Hwy 33 (16 kms). All campsites are available on a first come first serve basis only and, therefore, advisable to arrive earlier in the day for best chances to secure a campsite; especially for long weekends.
