Lake Country - North West

Welcome to the Okanagan’s very own lake district.

Located in between Kelowna and Vernon and bordered by Highway 97 and the new bypass that connects Oyama to Winfield, the northern part of the District of Lake Country is far from being a bedroom community.

The area is known for agriculture. Some of the Okanagan's best-hidden gem wineries are found amongst the vineyards and orchards.

Choose from several freshwater lakes to live alongside. Languish on the shores of Okanagan Lake, waterski on Wood Lake, or paddle in the turquoise blue waters of Kalamalka Lake.

Carr’s Landing has a distinctive landscape where rocky outcrops reach down to Okanagan Lake. Here, you can find shaded beaches, hillside acreages, stunning waterfront homes, and fine restaurants with wine tasting rooms attached.
