The Shuswap is a region and lake system in the south central interior of British Columbia Canada. Shuswap is home to several sizable communities and mostly relies on forestry and tourism. Shuswap Lake is the most popular lake in the province for boating, with visitors flocking to the lake for its blue waters, unusual shape and size and abundance of untouched nature.
The Shuswap is defined by the four-armed lake of the same name. Shuswap was originally occupied by the indigenous Secwepemc People, who utilized the area's waterways and flourishing wildlife. The region offers unlimited opportunities for cottaging, camping, and boating/watersports. The town of Sicamous proudly declares itself the 'houseboat capital of Canada'.
As the Shuswap is 90% Provincial Park and undeveloped, there is almost zero chance of being robbed while camping/house boating. The same goes for the bigger cities like Salmon Arm.
