    Description

    Come to where the air is clean, the sky is wide open and your troubles are far away! Situated at the edge of the North Okanagan and the Shuswap regions, where the transition from farm and ranch land and river valleys meet the gradually growing hills, sits the scenic Niskonlith Lake. This area is about halfway from Vancouver to the Alberta border off of the Trans-Canada Highway (about 4.5 hours either way).

    This mostly flat lakefront 2.6 acre getaway has over 760 ft of frontage making it a great location to either build your cabin or bring up the RV or trailer to spend weekends and holidays with the immediate or extended family. The lake is great for swimming, fishing (10 hp restriction), and paddling in the summer, and nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the winters. Enjoy a hike along the gentle trails in Niskonlith Lake Provincial Park in the fall to see a host of migratory birds.

    From here you can get to Sun Peaks by the back way (29 km) on a gravel road, saving time and fuel. Chase and Pritchard are about 20 minutes away, with Kamloops about 45.

    There’s a covered trailer parking with a deck and power. There are a few full time residents nearby to keep an eye on things, but not close enough to hear what’s going on. So if you’re looking for a place to unwind and relax and still keep active, this property may be just what you’re into. Come see for yourself ...
