Bear Creek Provincial Park

 

Situated on the west side of Okanagan Lake and a mere 20 minute drive from Kelowna, BC, this family-oriented park features lakeside and creekside camping, over 400 metres of sandy beaches and 5 kms of spectacular, well-marked hiking trails. A picturesque canyon has been carved into the bedrock by Bear Creek tumbling onto a cottonwood-lined delta.
