The rest area along the highway is quite small and the dock was crowded. The lake is beautiful if you have a boat to get out on it.

Scenic drive that isn't on the main freeway but can connect to Kamloops or a drive thru the Douglas Lk. area. Qualchena has a restaurant. Fishing & lots of other water activities.

Loons swimming around making their eerie call. Fish jumping out of the water, little fish swimming close to shore. Fishermen in boats, kayaks and canoes so many things to do. Picnic tables under large shady trees.

Location has a boat launch, picnic tables, washrooms, new wharf for swimming or fishing off of as well as just enjoying the views. Great place to take family for a nice outing. Stretching the legs of a long drive. A break for lunch. Safe area...More
