    Area Data

    Pinantan and Paul Lake are known for their beautiful scenery and wide variety of recreational activities. Paul Lake Provincial Park, which is only 10 minutes from Pinantan Lake, has a large lakeshore campground which is as popular with RVers as the extensive picnic grounds and adventure playground are with day trippers.

    Easy access, beautiful scenery, plentiful fishing, over 7 kilometres of hiking trails and a diversity of outdoor recreational activities make the 670 hectare Paul Lake Provincial Park a popular destination.

    Surrounding forests consist of interior Douglas fir, aspen and some stands of old-growth trees. The park also provides habitat for falcons, white-throated swifts, bald eagles, coyotes and mule deer.

    Pinantan Lake is stocked with Blackwater and Pennask strains of Rainbow trout, is easily accessed with a car-top boat. The lake is perfect for easygoing paddling. The day-use area has a superb sandy beach and a safe swimming area that is buoyed off from boat traffic. Biking is permitted on the roadways. Canoe, kayak and paddle-boat rentals are available.

    The park has 90 vehicle/tent campsites (no reservations possible) and a day-use/picnicking area. Basic facilities include picnic tables, pit toilets, fire pits and cold water taps are located throughout the park. A sani-station is also provided. Some facilities are wheelchair accessible. The Paul Lake group campsite is located at the opposite end of the lake from the main campground.

    Because of milder winters and aridity, the area west of Kamloops in the lower Thompson River valley falls within a desert climate. Kamloops gets short cold snaps where temperatures can drop to around -20°C (-4°F) when Arctic air manages to cross the Rockies and Columbia Mountains into the Interior.

    Kamloops is located at the crossroads of the Coquihalla Highway, Yellowhead Highway, and Trans-Canada Highway. The Kamloops Airport is a 15-minute drive from downtown, the cultural hub of the city. It is also known as the Tournament Capital of Canada. It hosts more than 100 tournaments each year at world-class sports facilities such as the Tournament Capital Centre, Kamloops Bike Ranch, and Tournament Capital Ranch. Kamloops also has the highest number of golf courses per capita in the country.

    Sandstone canyons, grasslands and evergreen timberlands play host to incredible hiking, mountain biking and camping. Kamloops is also a major golfing destination, with around a dozen courses close by. More than 200 nearby lakes and two major rivers provide great fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting and tubing.

    There are 82 parks in Kamloops, covering 1,350 hectares. It is also home to the largest municipal bike park in Canada.

    In the winter, outdoor activities abound. Do some exploring on snowshoes or cross-country skis; take the kids tubing or tobogganing, or to an outdoor ice rink; or visit nearby Sun Peaks Resort for some downhill action. Want to go faster?

    The Kamloops area has been inhabited by the Secwépemc and Nlaka’pamux peoples, who have lived here for close to 10,000 years. "Kamloops" is the anglicized version of the Shuswap word "Tk'əmlúps", meaning "meeting of the waters". In 1811 the fur trade arrived and a post for the Astoria Company was installed in 1812, which later became a Hudson’s Bay Company fort.

    The next big influx of people came with the gold rush. Provincial incentives for land ownership brought others and turned former gold rushers into homesteaders, kick-starting ranching in the region. Construction came to Kamloops in 1883, bringing railway workers and establishing Kamloops as a transportation hub with the railway’s completion in 1886 and a second railway in 1912.

    At the turn of the century, Kamloops grew exponentially, bringing people, businesses, the expansion of the Courthouse, and establishment of Royal Inland Hospital. Growth in agricultural brought the beginnings of orchards and the expansion of agricultural production, especially tomato canneries. The post-war economic boom ushered heavy industry into Kamloops with the establishment of an oil refinery, a natural gas pipeline, and, by the 1960s, a pulp and paper mill.

    The 1970s saw an expanded city that included a number of adjacent communities. The decade also saw the opening of the first higher education institution, which grew to become Thompson Rivers University, and the completion of the Yellowhead Highway in 1970 and the Trans-Canada Highway in 1971.

    An economic resurgence came in the late 1980s, with the successful referendum in 1988, led to the opening of Riverside Coliseum in 1992, and the beginning of Kamloops’ journey to becoming Canada’s Tournament Capital.

    50°43'57.21"N and 120° 0'21.12"WThe 1993 Canada Summer Games brought Canada to Kamloops and helped build its reputation as a centre for tournaments and sporting and cultural events, a reputation that was strengthened by the completion of the Tournament Capital Centre in 2006.
