Vaseux Lake: A Great Roadside Stop for Campers and Anglers
Vaseux Lake Provincial Park is a popular roadside campground that provides excellent fishing opportunities for bass, trout and carp. This park boasts beautiful lakeside sites with easy lake access. It is located on Highway 97 between OK Falls and Oliver. Vaseux is minutes away from amenities and popular tourist spots; grab ice cream at Tickleberry’s, take a cruise through wine country, pick your own strawberries on a tour of Covert Farms, or explore unique and fun shopping opportunities in Penticton, OK Falls, Oliver, and Osoyoos!
Vaseux Lake is an excellent wildlife viewing area; this park preserves an abundant and varied wildlife population. Best viewing opportunities are in the spring and fall. Look for mountain goats, California big horn sheep and a wide variety of bird species. Directly adjacent to the campground, viewing platforms at Vaseux Wildlife Centre offer excellent nature sighting opportunities for birds, aquatic life, mountain goats and big horn sheep. Park users at Vaseux Wildlife Centre should use caution as poison ivy is common in the area. The Wildlife Centre and Vaseux Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary are operated and maintained by the Canadian Wildlife Service.
