The Shuswap Lake is a very large interior, fresh water lake. We will give you a general overview of the lake and then we will divide the lake into "sections" in order to make it easier to locate and "discover" the many fun and interesting features in the area.

We will "talk" about the Adams River (world famous for the large Sockeye Salmon spawning run) which flows into the Shuswap Lake. We will tell you about the communities along the lakeshore, activities, R.V. campgrounds, hotels, motels, marinas and much much more. (this is a new and incomplete section of our website - please check back often)
