Lake Country: Sun, sandy beaches, watersports and more

Wood Lake is one of the area’s cherished lakes

As you might imagine, Lake Country, in the heart of the beautiful Okanagan area of British Columbia, is all about lakes — and Wood Lake is one of the region’s cherished waterways.

Famous for its ample sunshine and sandy beaches, Wood Lake is a popular destination for watersports, including boating, fishing, waterskiing and wakeboarding, to name a few.

Wood Lake, known for its rainbow trout, is part of a chain of five major lakes in the Okanagan, and is immediately south of Kalamalka Lake.
