Shuswap Lake is the attraction of this southcentral British Columbia area of rugged mountains, forest-lined valleys, grasslands, and lakes.

The Shuswap is a popular place for families and a favourite houseboating and water recreation destination. Salmon Arm is the urban centre on the lakeshore with a long, curved wooden wharf, sandy beaches, and the well-loved Roots and Blues music festival.
