Kamloops Travel Guide
Welcome to Kamloops!
Kamloops, in south central British Columbia, is the only one of the four major cities (Kelowna being the largest) in the Thompson-Okanagan not located in the Okanagan Valley. Aboriginal for 'meeting of the waters', Kamloops makes its home in the Thompson Valley at the confluence of the North and South Thompson rivers. The city is characterized by hot, bright summers and mild, snow-filled winters. During the warmer months, golfers invade for a chance to play at one of the many championship courses such as Eagle Point Golf Course, Rivershore Golf Course and Sun Rivers Golf Resort. Sun Peaks and Silver Star resorts guarantee that winter enthusiasts will be left out in the cold, enjoying great skiing and snowboarding. If all this isn't reason enough to visit, Kamloops has literally thousands of lakes, spectacular landscapes and endless blue skies, making it worthy of top spot on any vacation wish list.
McArthur Island Park is located on the north bank of the Thompson River.
