    Lake Osoyoos is nice, clean, and gets very warm mid summer. Also very close to the border (if it even matters this year) and it gets HOT.

    Osoyoos is full of weeds. But I agree is best of all worlds.

    I really miss it, but frankly it was too far away for anyone with a day job to ever get any use out of.

    I found the south side of the bridge to be quite good. North side might be a little weedy.

    Wasa is great in June-ish. Did a triathlon there a few years ago and lake and campground next door was great
    Wasa is really good. I would highly recommend it. Been there for the triathlon in June as well (full disclosure, me and the kids watched my wife do it...). Cool at that time of the year though. lol


    Christina Lake is my favorite and same with my kids now. We spend at least two weeks there every summer. Awesome weather, clean warm water, and relaxing location.

    For a bit of travel I recommend Crystal Lake, especially for the teenagers.

    You mostly get that where the lakes have been used substantially for logging.

    That is awesome. Way less need to go away for the weekend when you have that in the back yard.

    How many trailer parking spaces you got @Buster and what's the nightly rate? 30A hookups? Can I hook my poop trailer to my truck and drag it around the block?

    Edit: serious though, nicely done.

    thanks. We don't get away on vacations as much as we would like, and all of my Toronto friends seem to hate the city and their homes so much they just want to leave every weekend. We decided we wanted a home we wanted to hang out in, rather than always trying to escape.

    genius move. Wish I could have convinced my better half ahead of us embarking on an inner city build. Saving 8hr round trip to/fro the lake cabin sounds amazing.

    edit: serious question (also serious threadjack) - do you find there are any downsides to lakefront? Chestermere? Schools?

    This didn't go unnoticed by me @JRSC00LUDE lol
    @cjblair perfect recommendation. I grew up going there and I absolutely loved that lake. Always walked around the trails and found painted turtles and shit.

    I miss that place, it is seriously hard to get a reservation there nowadays. I havent been there in almost 20 years because of it.

    St Mary Reservoir. Warm, real sand, no weeds.
