Shuswap Lake

The Shuswap Lake is the center point of a large stream and lake network. Approximately 526 streams and lakes, covering a runoff area of about 25,000 square km, contribute their water into the Shuswap Lake. The South Thompson River, the only outlet of the Shuswap Lake system, carries the total intake about 500 km west through British Columbia where it is finally released into the Pacific Ocean near Vancouver.

This is a recreational paradise for all outdoor enthusiasts!
