Houseboating on the Shuswap Lake is our family's favourite all time vacation. We shared our boat with another family there were about 14 of us each year. It was the most relaxing laid back best holiday. We tended to find a great spot there are many and stay put. We had a speed boat with us as well lots of fun for skiing wakeboarding fishing shopping etc. Our best spot was toward the north end of Seymour Arm. There is a great park with a hike up to some falls at Albas Marine Park. Our beach was small protected with a small creek. The older kids camped on the beach the rest of us stayed on the houseboat. Even with the fancy boat we turned our back on the TV(yahoo!). The cards and games came out and many hours were spent playing games. We'd fall in the lake when we were hot fall into bed when tired eat whenever and read lots of books and just plain relax. One year the kids spent 3 days building this this rock fort and signed thier names. By the end of the summer lots of people had added their names I guess they liked what they saw too.
