Harbour Road Boat Launch

September 6, 2017

The Harbour Road Boat Launch is closed due to the low water level of Shuswap Lake. 

Harbour Road Boat Launch has become one of the most popular boat launches in the Shuswap. This site is approximately 20 metres wide by 100 metres long. There is a public vault toilet, garbage receptacles, a cement boat launch and a 60 foot dock for temporary loading and unloading of boats. No boat moorage is permitted. There are parking spaces for approximately 15 vehicles with trailers (day use only, no overnight parking). This is a shallow boat launch and is only suitable for smaller boats in the late summer due to the receded water levels (normally down to 3 metres in the late summer months). The boat launch is closed from October 1 to March 31 due to salmon spawning.  Harbour Road is a Ministry of Transportation Public Access to Shuswap Lake. It is under a License of Occupation to the CSRD and has been substantially improved as a boat launch.
