KalamalkaThis 890 hectare park conserves a rather significant and unique area of the Okanagan. The area is made up of rolling slopes and forested ridges of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, black cottonwood and lodgepole pine making it a nature lovers paradise.

The soft grasslands of summer, the rich tones of the leaves turning in the fall or the brilliant splashes of wildflower colour in the spring set off by the stunning blues and greens of Kalamalka Lake make this park a favorite amongst all who visit.

The lake is known as a "marl lake", a process which begins when the lake warms and calcium carbonate or limestone forms crystals that reflect the sunlight creating its distinct blue-green colour. During temperature changes the lake often displays ribbons of deep blue.

The natural wetlands and ponds within the park are home to a vast array of animal life including the western rattlesnake, pacific rubber boa, western painted turtle, weasels, the bobcat and red fox. Bird life is also abundant within the park.

The park is located on College Way off of Highway #97, 10 km south of Vernon.

Day-use facilities - Juniper Bay is the perfect place for a day at the beach. A play area, picnic tables, water taps, toilets and an information display are provided.

Boating - Boat launch facilities are located on the west side of Kalamalka Lake at Kekuli Bay Provincial Park. Waterskiing is a popular activity on the lake.

Hiking and Trails - There are over 10 km of trails which provide access to the parks interesting features, viewpoints and beaches. Mountain bikes and horses are allowed on designated trails.
