Visitors can also explore the numerous ghost-mining towns nearby and after an exciting day, relax in the many commercial or undeveloped natural hot springs in the area.
The adventurous might want to canoe the length of the lake, staying close to the western shores, which can take from two to five days. The shoreline has many attractive sand and cobble beaches to enjoy. Boaters are warned that Slocan Lake can experience treacherous winds, so consult locals before setting out on the lake.
