  The land jutting into the lake is Haynes Point
by balhannah

Around Osoyoos Lake, we found many beaches and picnic grounds. Even though it is a lake in Canada, the water was warm, just poked the toe in, to see if they were telling the truth about the warm water temperature!

Yes they were! Haynes Point picnic ground we liked. It is a narrow bit of land, jutting into Osoyoos Lake. There were many lakeside campsites, plenty of privacy, a place that if it was in my home country, we would bring our Caravan to and stay a while.
There is a marsh area and self-guided interpretive trail. I think we would enjoy our time here, watching the speedboats on the lake, there were a couple out on the day we were there.

There are many other places for picnics if this is too crowded....
Gyro Beach, Lions Centennial Park, Kinsmens Park and Legion Beach

I have put the website in for camping at Haynes Point.
