Lake Country East - Oyama Neighbourhoods

A gem located in between two lakes.

Home to families, retirees, and vacationers, Oyama has everything from large waterfront estates, orchards, farms, sprawling acreages, modular and mobile home parks, and cottages.

Located on a strip of land between Kalamalka and Wood Lakes, the tight-knit community is a popular destination for boaters, swimmers, and cyclists, thanks to the construction of two popular multi-use trails, the Okanagan Rail Trail and Pelmewash Parkway, which once served as Highway 97 and has since been replaced with a wide pedestrian-friendly paved trail.

While shopping in Winfield or Vernon can be easily accessed, Oyama features a quaint village centre with a boat channel that connects the two lakes. Included are a general store, Legion, yacht club, community centre, and traditional school. Jutting off on a peninsula on Kalamalka Lake is Kaloya Park, a popular picnic area.
