Area Information

The Shuswap Lake system in Southern Interior of British Columbia offers more than 1,000 kilometres of shoreline to explore, amidst spectacular scenery and a pristine environment. Shuswap Lake is shaped like a skewed capital H and is made up of four large arms: the Shuswap Lake Main Arm, Salmon Arm, Anstey Arm, and Seymour Arm.

The lake connects to Little Shuswap via the Little River, which flows from the end of the west arm. To the north-west it is fed by the Adams River, world famous for its annual salmon run, draining Adams Lake. Shuswap Lake offers a fabulous way to vacation with family and friends. Secluded beaches, protected waterways and the seemingly endless shoreline make Shuswap Lake the hub of a year-round recreational haven.

It’s a great place to visit, but an even better place to call home! Our newest development, “The Highlands,” offers building sites overlooking the lake and golf course. Why not make us your next destination – Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime.

Further information regarding the area can be found at Shuswap Tourism and BC Parks.
