Turn off Trans Canada Highway at Balmoral Road, proceed north for approximately 2.8 km to Blind Bay/Eagle Bay Road, keep right, and proceed for 19 km to Eagle Bay. Watch for Shannon Beach sign at entrance to parking lot above road. Short trail leads to beach (across Eagle Bay Road).
This site is 18.33 hectares (45.29 acres) in size, including over 400 metres (1,312 feet) of shoreline on Shuswap Lake. A parking lot has been constructed above Eagle Bay Road opposite the beach. There is a vault privy and garbage receptacle adjacent to the parking lot. There is also a small picnic area overlooking the lake. A short trail leads across Eagle Bay Road (watch for traffic) to the beach. The beach area expands as the lake water recedes during the summer. High water is in late June with a narrow beach, and by late August the beach is up to 25 metres wide. There is an accessible trail to the beach from Eagle Bay Road and picnic table for persons with disability. The large swimming area is cordoned off from boat traffic with buoys. A swimming raft is provided for the enjoyment of swimmers and bathers.
