Shuswap Lake is known for its water activities in British Columbia, where four arms of the lake give you an expansive area to explore. Get back to nature in this beautiful haven, where you can watch the water or the birds, mountains and greenery around. Explore the mountain highs and the river lows of Shuswap Lake, where you can do dare devil activities or simply relax by the water.
The four arms of the lake are Salmon Arm, Anstey Arm, Seymour Arm, and the main lake. Fishing is a must on the lake, where you can find different species of salmon and trout. In the community of Scotch Creek, you can find the Shuswap Lake Provincial Park with campgrounds, beaches, and picnic areas. The Park is very popular, and is a great way to spend the day. Similarly, you can visit Silver Beach Provincial Park along the Seymour Arm. Shuswap isn’t just for the summer, as in winter you can go skiing, snowboarding, or anything else snow related in the mountains! The miles of shoreline around Shuswap Lake give you endless discoveries to make, with smaller rivers, and even waterfalls.
Head into Salmon Arm City for the evening after a day on the water, as the restaurants and nightlife give you a change of pace. Salmon Arm Roots and Blues festival is annual in August, and has become one of the most popular festivals in British Columbia. The Shuswap Art Gallery in Salmon Arm is also a fun cultural activity to keep you busy in the city. Salmon Arm City is full of visitors in the summer, with beaches at Sunnybrae and Canoe for you to enjoy.
