Extending nearly 17 miles down the valley, Osoyoos Lake is formed by the Okanagan River widening south of the Canadian Rockies. While quite deep at the centre, Osoyoos Lake is the warmest fresh water lake in Canada.

A variety of fish are available in Osoyoos Lake, including Large Mouth Bass, Trout, Kokanee, Perch and White Fish. There are three boat launches and several marinas where you can rent boats, skidoos, or paddle boats. Other recreational opportunities available include canoeing, swimming, boating, hiking, and waterskiing.
