Pinantan Lake

A Step Back in Time

The name Pinantan means 'shoe' or 'moccasin' in traditional Aboriginal language. The lake was given this name because its shape resembles a moccasin.


Pinantan Lake is located 33 km (20 mi) northeast of Kamloops via Hwy 5 and Paul Lake Road.

Things to See and Do
  • Fishing

Pinantan Lake ices over from November to mid April. Rainbow trout in the 1-pound range are numerous and offer fast action on trolling and spinning gear. A good mayfly hatch is a bonus for the fly fishers.

  • Skiing / Snowboarding

Harper Mountain is one of the hidden secrets of the Thompson Okanagan region of British Columbia. This family-friendly ski hill offers great Okanagan powder for downhill skiers and snowboarders, as well as night skiing and cross-country trails - all at affordable prices.

  • Golfing

Nearby Kamloops has many excellent golf courses, including some 18-hole championship fairways. Renowned course architects such as Thomas McBroom and Graham Cooke have been attracted to this area to design many of these fantastic golf venues.
