OK Falls

Located on the southern end of Skaha Lake in the Okanagan Valley, and known locally as OK Falls, the little community of Okanagan Falls was originally known as Dogtown, from the Okanagan First Nations word Skaha, meaning dog, after which the nearby Skaha Lake was named.  Okanagan Falls was named after small twin waterfalls that were once part of a scenic natural landscape located at the southern end of Skaha Lake where it emptied into the Okanagan River. The falls were reduced to a series of gentle rapids in the 1950s with the construction of a flood control dam to control the level of water flowing south in the Okanagan River.

Okanagan Falls is a charming little town best visited for its tasty pleasures: It is home to the largest ice-cream cone seller in the valley, Tickleberry’s; and two prestigious wineries, Wild Goose Vineyards and Hawthorne Mountain Vineyards (formerly LeComte Estate Winery). The community of Okanagan Falls was founded on agriculture, and today provides fresh fruits and vegetables, delicious dried fruits and award winning wines.

There are numerous parks and natural landscapes to enjoy in the community of OK Falls. If you’re a recreational (or professional) shutterbug then there is no shortage of picturesque landscapes, beachscapes and waterscapes for you to work with.
