Tucked among the rocky mountains and the lush beauty of evergreen trees is beautiful Lake Koocanusa and the community of Sweetwater Lake Village. Sandy beaches abound meeting crystal clear water with over 200 miles of shoreline and 300 acres of prime lake front property, making Sweetwater Lake Village one of Western Canada's best kept secrets.
Fed by the waters of the Kootenay River, Elk River and streams from the Kootenay Valley, Lake Koocanusa offers year-round activities accompanied by stunning scenery. The beaches are wonderful for picnicking, swimming and overnighting as they are well protected from windy conditions. Water temperatures in the summer can reach the high 70's which makes the lake ideal for boating, water-skiing and other water sports and the resort also features a marina.
