Ellison Provincial Park is nestled on the northeastern shore of Okanagan Lake and includes 200 hectares of forested benchlands above a rocky shoreline of scenic headlands and sheltered coves. The park’s natural attractions, combined with the dry, sunny Okanagan climate, provide for many recreational opportunities including swimming, climbing, diving, cycling, and hiking.
This North Okanagan park is extremely popular during the summer months and all long weekends. As a result, reservations are highly recommended and should be made well in advance. Several campsites are also always available on a first come first serve basis but are more easily acquired during spring and fall especially as reservations are not required during that time. On another note, Ellison Park offers fantastic scenic mountain biking trails for a wide range of skill levels.
