Provincial Parks

The park encompasses 15 hectares, primarily made up of a narrow sandspit on Osoyoos Lake. A natural marsh makes the perfect home for a number of different species of birdlife including the burrowing owl, canyon wrens, red-winged blackbirds and even the turkey vulture.

The park is located in the rainshadow of the Cascade Mountains to the west and the protective cover of the Columbia Mountains to the east. This is Canada's only true desert area where sagebrush, prickly pear cacti and ponderosa pine dominate and make the perfect home for the spadefoot toad and desert night snake. The park was named for Judge John Carmichael Haynes who was a prominent judge and landowner in Osoyoos in the late 1800's.

The park is located 1 km off of Highway 97 near Osoyoos which is 2.5 km away from the park entrance.
Camping - There are 41 campsites within the park, most of which are located on the beach. Toilets, wood and water are provided. There are also changehouses and a picnic area nearby.

Fishing & Boating - A boat launch is located within the park. The lake is an excellent place for anglers to catch rainbow trout and bass.

Hiking and Trails - There are a few trails provided for those who wish to enjoy nature in the desert setting.
