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

The Shuswap is a popular place for families and a favourite house-boating 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.
