    Otter Lake is a fantastic lake for canoeing. Due to the relatively small size of the lake, you can easily spend an hour or two exploring by canoe. Waves are little to non-existant on Otter Lake. The only real danger is the wake from nearby speedboats.

    There's a well-travelled highway located between Vancouver and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia known as the Crowsnest Hwy (Hwy 3).

    If you follow this highway about 3 hours east of Vancouver, on the east side of the Cascades, you'll enter the town of Princeton. Just north-west of Princeton are some amazing little towns left over from the turn of the century's mining industry - towns like Coalmont and Tulameen.

    Coalmont is now home to a cute wild western hotel and general store, and Tulameen is a tiny community on the shore of Otter Lake. The Tulameen River is also found meandering its way through the region. The Kettle River railroads once brought railcars into the mining towns back in the previous century but have been abandoned for decades. These trails are now extensively used for cycling and hiking.

    Photo: Here I am in August 1997 in the Tulameen River. We discovered this swimming hole by following the Kettle River Railway trail by Coalmont. I'm actually holding a tiny fish in my hands!
