Chute Lake kayaking July 19-20 2014


 everything is greening up nicely at Chute Lake. Saturday paddling was interesting as the wind was quite heavy ended up doing a solo paddle but Sunday we woke to calm lake and beautiful reflections.

After our weekend camping at the resort we found that there is a BCFS camp on the south end of the lake.  The BCFS camp appears to be free with large private camp spots. Lots of trees and shrubs between.

We started the weekend at Christina Lake and ended up at this little lake and enjoyed 2 days here at Jewel Lake. Kayaking and hiking around the lake.

First Camp - Evely - On Okanagan Lake KAYAKLOG: 6/20/2014

We arrived at Evely Camp on Friday evening

 Our first night was at Evey Camp our morning paddle was awesome as soon as the wind died down.





On our second night we found a nice secluded spot to camp at Kalamalka Lake and later we were greeted by a couple who told us we were in their spot "jokingly " they said that they would use the beach fire pit. They seemed like nice people. They told us of how they cleaned this spot and took out bags of trash when they left last time. They left at dark. We thought nice couple. Well this morning we go to the firepit they used that was clean before they came and found broken beer bottles and trash that they nicely left behind. What a piss  off. We just gathered their trash to take back with us. Unreal!!
