Coldstream - 'Rural Living at its Best'
The District of Coldstream is located right next door to the city of Vernon. In Coldstream the motto is 'Rural Living at its Best.'

Relaxing Lifestyle
Personally, it's hard to argue with that statement. Situated by the north end of Kalamalka Lake your chances of living a relaxing rural lifestyle in Coldstream are pretty much guaranteed.

Kalamalka Lake
Large sprawling lots, large houses and access to a wide range of recreational pursuits are what you expect to find in Coldstream. By having Kalamalka Lake right at your doorstep, the summer fun never seems to end.

Beach Areas
Two spots to try are the public beach located on Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park and Kal Beach on Kalamalka lake Road.

Silver Star Mountain
Then, as fall and winter come round, the boarding and skiing available at Silver Star is second to none.

Coldstream Valley
Close by to Coldstream going east is the beautiful Coldstream Valley. Up here you will find the small communities of Lavington and Lumby.

Lumby
This is spectacular country with Mabel Lake and the Shuswap River all within your reach. Going east of Lumby on Hwy 6, the Monashee is a large mountain range with excellent hiking opportunities.

Close Neighbourhood
Living and having Vernon as a close neighbour, Okanagan Lake is quite accessible from Coldstream. One excellent park you might want to look at for swimming and recreational boating is Ellison Provincial Park.

Ellison Provincial Park
This park located in Vernon features sunken wrecks, schools of fish and sandy beaches. The snorkeling and scuba diving are excellent. Make sure you take good walking shoes; Ellison Provincial Park has some excellent hikes but can be dangerous because of the steep bluffs that surround the bays.
