We visited the park for a week at the end of June. I was so impressed by the condition of the park. The sites are cleaned, raked, fire pits sanded. Our hosts take very good care of the site. Provincially managed parks should be paying attention to how well this park is cared for. The trees and lake are beautiful.... More

This is the warmest lake in Canada. And the beach is lesser crowded (even on Canada Day long weekend). Lots of waves!!

We have a small motor home and camped in the overflow which was almost better for us than a campsite. We dined inches from the water and fell asleep to the sound if it lapping on the shore two feet from where we were parked. lt is a long point with campsites along each side and up the middle. As...

Stayed at Haynes this last week. It was great. Apparently after the 15th of May it is fully reserved. It is too bad they don't keep a few as first come first served for the whole summer so that more people could enjoy it. I think it is best to stay on the South side to avoid wind, at least... More

There are several easy walks you can take. The wetland walk has a viewing tower overlooking a pond where you can see many birds. We saw an osprey dive into it. The views of the rest of the lake are very pleasant. It's a nice way to spend some time to unwind.

A great spot to see birds, especially warblers in the spring and fall. Nicely kept nature walk with a variety of habitats including a boardwalk over the marsh.

The information about native flora and fauna was very interesting. The walk itself is very easy and even a small child could do it.

Our mid-April 2-night tenting stay during (mostly) good weather was a delight. Large sites, flush toilets, and a paved road (no road dust) make for quality camping, though no showers. Check out the wind forecast before choosing a north or south site, though many sites in the middle will be protected from any wind. Biking on-site or into town is... More

We were visiting Osoyoos for a lengthy stay and walked out to the Point nearly every day. A perfect spot with outstanding views of the lake and mountains/hills which surround the immense lake.

Beautiful place to walk or run on a sunny April morning. The trail through the wetlands was very interesting. The campsites are huge. We saw lots of ducks and the aroma of the blooming oregon grapes, was very pleasant. The views of the mountains and the hillside vineyards and orchards and the lake to the north and to the south...
