Located 25 minutes north of Kelowna and 21 minutes south of Vernon, the District of Lake Country represents Okanagan living at its best, offering breathtaking scenery, year-round recreational activities, wineries, working farms and orchards, and much more. With a population of 15,000 and its proximity to Kelowna and Vernon, Lake Country residents enjoy the benefits of small town living while still being in close proximity to larger municipalities. Although small, Lake Country was named BC's fastest growing municipality in 2014 and continues to grow.
Lake Country is the only municipality in BC to have a ward system, consisting of four distinct communities that joined in 1995 to form the municipality yet remain separate wards within it: Winfield, Okanagan Centre, Oyama, and Carr's Landing. The ward system ensures each community has representation on municipal council. Each ward has its own distinct history and culture.
Lake Country is home to three lakes: Okanagan Lake, Wood Lake, and Kalamalka Lake, all providing recreational opportunities like fishing, boating, and wakeboarding among some of BC's most picturesque views. The Spion Kop recreation area offers hiking trails zigzaging over 900 acres, while the Scenic Sip Wine Trail provides touring experiences for wine-lovers at some of BC's award-winning wineries. The Kangaroo Creek Farm presents a unique opportunity to meet not only kangaroos but other animals typically native to Australia.
