4th Edition Okanagan Valley and Shuswap BC Waterproof Map Now Available

Located in the heart of the BC interior, the Okanagan Valley & Shuswap region is one of the most recreation-rich areas in the entire country. From lush old-growth forests to arid desert-like landscapes, hidden waterfalls, towering mountains and pristine lakes, there is something incredible to discover around every corner. To help you navigate this breathtaking part of Canada, we have released the fourth edition of our Okanagan Valley & Shuswap BC Waterproof Map, featuring extensive updates and expanded coverage from our last edition. This durable, lightweight and easy-to-use recreation map puts all the detail of our popular Backroad Mapbooks right in your front pocket.


In the southern portion of these maps, the popular vacation destinations of Kelowna and Penticton are hotspots for swimming and boating on the warm, clear waters of Okanagan Lake. As you move away from these larger cities, you will discover hidden recreation goldmines like the Christian Valley, where you can find some of the most picturesque riverside camping anywhere, and Granby Provincial Park, famous for its pristine mountain streams and rich wildlife habitat. To the north, charming communities like Armstrong and Enderby are surrounded by untouched BC wilderness in every direction, while the Shuswap Lakes offer even more fishing, boating and swimming. In the winter, you can sample some of the best downhill skiing and snowboarding in the world at resorts like Big White, Silverstar and Revelstoke.
