We visited in July and although it was busy really enjoyed it. Easy to find and right off the highway. The trail isn't too long if you have kids, bring binoculars if you want to see the wildlife up close.

This is a lovely lake, and its even more interesting because it is also an excellent place to go bird-watching. We took the boardwalk to the lookout where we spent a considerable time just watching all the birds around us.

After hiking another trail in the area we decided to drive up to north end of Vaseux lake to visit the new birdviewing tower. So peaceful, a must if you are visiting area.

Right off of the highway, you can't miss the park but beware that there is always a lot of traffic, so it may not be the most peaceful getaway during summer.

A very small park with short walk to an observation tower in amongst the reads. We saw plenty of birds and even an otter in the water. Only downside is that it is very close to the highway.
