Year round activities revolve around the water at Christina Lake.

This 18km/11mi long body of water is reputed to be the warmest tree-lined lake in Canada with an average summer temperature of 22°C/71°F. Myriad secluded beaches and two boat launches provide ready access for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and parasailing.

Fishing is popular in Christina Lake, smaller area lakes, many local creeks and the Kettle River.


Christina Lake is generally lined with private residences, resorts and summer cottages, but there are still plenty of public beaches and many offer boat only wilderness seclusion. Christina Lake Provincial Park, just 1km/0.6mi from the village centre is easy to reach and makes a good spot for picnicking under the trees.
