  • We wish that we had discovered this spot much earlier during our visit to Invermere, as we would have used it to have a picnic and enjoy the lake views that it offers. This is a great place for...  more »
  • This park has great view, is accessible and has ample parking. We went in November and it was not crowded at all. There's a sand/beach front and cool playground for kids.  more »
  • Nice beach and lake. Sun shade over picnic tables. $3 / person to use this beach up to a max of $15 per car seems silly to me. The parking attendant was lovely. Wonder lady with lots of smiles and happy to chat. Other than the parking it's a great place.
  • We like the beach here better than the one in downtown Invermere. It’s usually a lot quieter, so it’s easy to find parking and a spot in the shade even on a busy long weekend. There is no concession or gear rentals, but there is a roped off swim area and a playground. The swim area is shallow. I am 5’6” and can stand up on the bottom 20-30’ from shore.
