Peachland at Sunset

Peachland

Located on the western shore of beautiful Lake Okanagan, Peachland boasts an uninterrupted 7 km / 4 mi beach trail, and an abundance of water activities for everyone to enjoy. The rich fertile land throughout the Valley, along with many hours of sunshine, produces excellent grapes and various vineyards, offering wine tastings, dot the surrounding area. While here, look out for Ogopogo. Rattlesnake Island, directly across from Peachland, while not home to any rattlesnakes is said to be the home of the legendary monster. If you like adventure try out the highest zip line in North America which is located nearby and venture into Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park and enjoy the many trails and outdoor opportunities.

Location

Located in the Okanagan Valley on Hwy 97 25 km (15.5 mi) south of Kelowna and 45 km (28 mi) north of Penticton.

A Step Back in Time

The Pacific Fur Company established the Brigade Trail which encompassed what was to become Peachland, and it was used by fur traders until 1858, when its primary users changed to gold seekers. J.M. Robinson, arguably the father of the region, arrived with them in 1898. Robinson was the president of a mining company that operated gold mines on the mountainsides above Peachland. The slopes of the mountains surrounding Peachland at one time were home to fruit orchards – most notably peaches. This resulted in the construction of several packinghouses on the waterfront. Sternwheelers and steamboats plied the waters of Okanagan Lake to dock at the town’s wharf.

Long before fur traders and gold seekers came to the area, the Okanagan First Nations knew the area was rich with wildlife. They also knew of Ogopogo, the lake monster, whose home is supposedly in an underwater cave across the lake, between Rattlesnake Island and Squally Point.

Peachland has been home to sawmills, a hydro-electric project on Trepanier Creek, and is home to many kilometers of unobstructed pebble beaches. It is the gateway to Glenn Lake, Headwaters Lakes, Silver Lake and Peachland Lake. Peachland is nestled on the shore of Okanagan Lake tucked into the mountainsides above it. Peachland is a place of natural beauty, charm and over a hundred years of history.
