Tulameen is the perfect destination for the outdoor lover, with several trails, including the Trans-Canada Trail, and campsites nearby and several cabins to rent. There is no light pollution to block out the stars, giving way to a breathtaking view of the night sky against the surrounding mountains. The public beach at the south end of the lake is always a popular area for locals and travelers, and with its warm, calm waters, Otter Lake is perfect area for friends and families to spend the day.
When Coalmont found its success in the late 1800’s, and with the creation of the prosperous townsite Granite City, some miners went as far as Otter Lake to build their home, and as a result the town of Otter Flats was born. The town flourished, with several stores, two hotels, a saloon, and a post office, and in 1901 the town was renamed Tulameen, a Thompson First Nations word meaning “red earth”. The town continued to grow as the Kettle Valley Railway was built, connecting Tulameen to Hope and with the rest of the Okanagan.
Today, Tulameen is known as the place to go for a weekend adventure, and more and more people been making the decision to leave the loud and bustling city to move there permanently and enjoy a more peaceful, quiet and simpler life.
