Okanagan Falls was named after its small twin waterfalls. Although they are no longer heavily cascading due to the flood control dam installed in the 1950s, the gentle rapids are still viewable at the Southern end of Skaha Lake.
On the West Side of the Okanagan River, you can follow a trail through the campground and continue out towards the park boundary. Along this trail lookout for birds, wildflowers, plants and wildlife. Animals spotted frequently include bighorn sheep, elk, bats, cougar, moose and bears.
Several fishing opportunities await for those interested, an interpretative sign create by the Okanagan National Fisheries Commission with information regarding this can be found by the campground.
