Kids swimming (Picture BC photo)
Cool refreshing waters, warm swimming lakes, and family-friendly beach settings, are all found in the the Kootenay Rockies region of British Columbia.
Head to the warm waters of Wasa Lake for swimming, canoeing, camping, fishing, boating, cycling, windsurfing, and waterskiing. Relax on long sandy beaches that complement the cool, deep blue waters of Moyie Lake in Moyie Lake Provincial Park. At Windermere Lake in James Chabot Provincial Park swim, picnic, canoe, kayak, fish, and windsurf. Explore on foot or mountain bike the rugged setting of Upper and Lower Arrow Lakes, which also offers great swimming, and fishing.
The optimal times for swimming in the Kootenay Rockies region are July and August. Wasa, Moyie, Windermere, and Arrow Lakes do not have on-duty lifeguards.
