HI Shuswap Lake

Located in the historic Squilax General Store, the HI-Shuswap Lake Hostel sits on the shores of Shuswap Lake, one of BC’s most popular summer vacation destinations for swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting and hiking. Situated halfway between Banff and Vancouver, the hostel is in an ideal location for a stopover. We are in a wilderness setting but have hot running water, as well as a campfire pit and a native style sauna. The hostel dorm rooms are in three converted Canadian National Cabooses (rail cars). The private rooms are in the main building., As we are located directly on the lake, there is a wharf and free use of our canoe, as well as free use of a hiking self guided kit (daypack, binoculars, plant, bird and mammal guide books). A short walk or canoe ride through the forest will take you to a beaver’s lodge (yes, the real animal!). Local events include rodeos, music festivals, Pow Wows (native drumming and dance competitions), and the Adam’s River Salmon Spawning run. Organic grocery store on site. Tenting also available.
