Southwestern Shores of Okanagan Lake We begin at Okanagan Lake's south end, where the City of Penticton sits between it and Skaha Lake to the south.
The beaches in Penticton are long and sandy, and get very busy during the summer months.
There are a few mooring buoys just north of it, right below Wild Horse Canyon.
An outcropping of amazing steep cliffs look down upon you before you round Squally Point.
Highway 97 passes through Summerland up above the lakeshore on its way to Peachland and Kelowna. North of Summerland is Okanagan Lake Park, a provincial campground that is very popular in summer, and features a boat launch, beaches and abundant spots for water sports.
