Most of the many boat launches are free to us and available from May to September depending on water levels (remember, Shuswap Lake levels rise and fall up to 6 metres year). Regular protocols are in place. We share the lake respectfully and obey boating convention. It’s all of ours and together we make it better. There are also plenty of spots to put in for your non-motorized mode of transportation; canoes, paddle boards, kayaks and, yes, unicorn floaties too.
