Columbia Kayaking offers paddling on the scenic Arrow Lakes.
Along the Arrow Lakes fantastic hidden beaches are located. Access to these beaches on the east shore can be by car from the highways.
The public beach in Nakusp offers amazing vistas and a sandy shore. Burton (36 km south of Nakusp) offers a public beach, a marina and a campground. A hidden sandy beach, south of the bridge, offers great privacy.
Beaches on the west shores - access by boat or from the forestry roads (e.g. near East Arrow
ferry or Needles).
Fauquier (56 kn south of Nakusp) offers great (hidden) day use public "Detta Beach" which I consider one of the best of Arrow Lakes after the beaches in Nakusp. There is marina and excellent golf course.
