Description: Kamloops Lake is a beautiful lake that is just waiting to be discovered. The North Thompson and South Thompson Rivers flow into Kamloops Lake which is 1.6 km (1 mi.) wide and 29 km (18 mi.) long. In spots the lake is as deep as 152 meters (500 ft.). Because Kamloops Lake is river fed, the water level goes up and down with the snow melt in the mountains. Early June is high water and by early fall there is a lot of rocky shore.

During the hot summer months the water temperature over the shelf warms up enough for swimming. Go boating and explore the shoreline. Discover interesting driftwood, coloured rock formations, abandoned shacks, and mine workings and keekwillie holes. From the lake you can easily view the "Balanced Rock", the stone masonry railway bridges and railway tunnels. You might even spot some Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep roaming the northern hillside.
