About the Area
We invite you to browse our website to discover all the Shuswap has to offer. We encourage you to experience the Shuswap first hand by visiting our area of this beautiful province of British Columbia, Canada.
We can offer you a four season playground that includes many activities and attractions. Shuswap Lake is one of the most popular recreational destinations in BC. The approx. 400 km of shoreline contains many provincial parks and offers unlimited water related recreational opportunities. The surrounding mountains provide trails for cross country skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking and hiking.
Shuswap Lake is named after the Shuswap Indians, an Interior Salish tribe who ranged from west of the Fraser River, east to the Columbia River, and from the north of McBride to south of Kamloops. Shuswap may be derived from sixwt, meaning 'downriver.' There are four bands now located in the Shuswap, Adams Lake Band, Neskonlith Band, Spallumcheen Band and Little Shuswap Band.
