ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS...Put on your bathing suit and dive off the 60 foot floating dock into the swimmer friendly lake (no leeches here!) or pull yourself back and forth from shore to the dock on the “Jolly Rodger Pirate Ship” floating barge (always a favorite for the young kids).
BRING YOUR BEACH TOYS AND BUILD SANDCASTLES, or spread out your beach blanket and soak up the sun. Grab a life jacket and take out a canoe, paddle boat or an aluminum row boat, at no charge, and explore the shore line and little islands of the 2 mile long lake. Be bold and try cliff jumping.
ENJOY FRESH WATER FISHING? Idabel Lake is stocked annually with Rainbow and Brook trout. In the summer bring your fishing rod, worms, net, tackle and electric motor and use one of the free aluminum row boats. Kids love to walk along the shore and use their long handled kiddy nets to catch crayfish. In the winter dress warm and bring your auger and ice fishing equipment. Even if you don’t catch “the BIG one….A bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work !”
LIKE TO MOUNTAIN BIKE, HIKE OR ATV? Idabel Lake is a tranquil lake surrounded by multiple km’s of trails and forestry roads and is close to many lakes for your venturing, including McCulloch and Haynes Lakes (only 20 minute walk from resort). The popular KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY TRAIL extends over 55 kms from Myra Canyon to Beaverdell, and is accessible less than 5 km from the resort.
PLAY ON THE IDABEL LAKE RESORT PROPERTY: Whether you prefer a game of soccer, bocci ball, or badminton, the resorts grass field is waiting for you. Basketball nets are available for a game of hoops. There are plenty of paved areas for young ones to ride their bikes, scooters and skateboards as well as a playground equipped with swings, a slide and a small log house to explore. Adults, bring your coffee and enjoy the morning sun while sitting on the log swing while the kids play.
ALL AGES CAN ENJOY SMORES AND HOTDOGS AROUND THE CENTRAL FIRE PIT and there are ample picnic tables to enjoy an outdoor lunch or snack anytime.
PREFER WINTER ACTIVITIES? Bring your snowmobiles, skis (Nordic ski/snowshoe track is just 5km from the resort, Big White only 20 minutes), ice fishing supplies and ice-skates for lake skating (ice dependent). Lots of tobogganing areas on the resort, and have fun building forts with the piles of snow.
