The OKANAGAN VALLEY is part of B.C.'s Interior Plateau and is characterized by a string of lakes created by glaciation. The area lies in a fertile bowl, ideal for orchards and vineyards. The Monashee Mountains lie to the east while the Cascade Mountains lie to the west, causing the rain shadow effect that produces the area's semi-arid climate. Agriculture is still a prime activity with tree fruit orchards slowly giving way to increased grape production ( for the rapidly growing wine industry ) and cherry production.
Lake Country's close proximity to UBC-O, Kelowna International airport, world class golf courses and ski resorts make it an ideal location.
Recently the Okanagan Valley was rated as having the best weather in Canada. Our weather provides dry warm summer months- perfect for a wide variety of water sports. Fine sandy beaches offer a great place to spend the day, with picnic tables, shade trees and plenty of sunshine.
As evening approaches soft breezes entice the visitor to take a stroll. About one third of mid-summer days are tropical in nature ( max. temp. > 30 c )with little chance of precipitation.
Take a trip to the DEE LAKE CHAIN of mountain lakes which offer great fishing. Beaver Lake and Dee Lake resorts both offer boat rentals.
Swimming, fishing, boating and water sports are popular on all of our lakes, from the jewel tone waters of Kalamalka lake, the warm sandy beaches of Wood lake and the crystal clear waters and pebbles of Okanagan lake.
Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park contains a courtesy dock for emergency and pedestrian use, a small swimming beach, a viewing/fishing platform and a boat launch.
Turtle Bay Marina on Wood Lake has a boat launch, rentals and marine fuel. A shallow channel at the north end of the lake gives access to Kalamalka Lake. A municipal boat launch is located on the north east shore of Wood Lake.
PELMEWASH Parkway came about when the new strech of Hwy 97 was built between Oyama and Winfield. The old highway that runs along Wood Lake was renamed and is now a recreational corridor. Ride the level grade, 8.5 km paved road at a leisurely pace. Stop for a picnic, swim or take your rod and reel along for a fresh catch of the day or launch a canoe or kayak for an afternoon on the water..
Bike rentals are available through Lake Country Cycle ( Woodsdale rd 250-448-1926). On the north shore of Wood Lake, you can rent seadoos, paddle boards and kayaks from Kona Watersports.
For the hiking enthusiast, take one of the many trails on Spion Kop. The 5.2 trail to the summit will reward you with spectacular views of four of the lakes in Lake Country. Watch the hawks and eagles and many other birds.
There are several trails to choose from - from moderate to more difficult. A map of the trail is posted at each of the trailheads and printed maps are available at the municipal office and our visitor information centre.
Experience the heart of Lake Country and stop for a picnic, a game or a public arts show in one of our many parks. Our parks are equipped for year-round sports including tennis, baseball, soccer and beach volleyball.
Our parks also provide lots of outdoor entertainment for kids with plenty of playgrounds, water-spray park and skateboard park. Take in the public art displays located around the area and a seasonal Farmer's Market at Swalwell Park.

About the owner: I'm a retired School Principal who has worked in Quebec, Northern B.C. and the Okanagan Valley.
Born in Ontario, grew up in Monteral and received my education in Monteral ( Loyola - McGill). Re-located to this area-Lake Country- in '84 and greatly enjoy the natural amenities the area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Okanagan Centre: This is a very peaceful and " hidden " area of the valley. A special area where you can truly relax and totally enjoy nature at its best.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Glancing out the front window overlooking the Okanagan Lake in the early mornings and late evenings, seeing the snow capped mountains as winter approaches - these are but a few treasured moments this place offers.
