Where can I swim?


Note: Reservations are required for beach access until September 6 - book at parkvisit.ca. Book under Kelso Main Entrance. As of September 7, reservations will no longer be required as lifeguards will not be on duty and visit times will not be extended.

The beach at Kelso has a designated swimming area that is lifeguard supervised during reservation times.

Part of a 35-hectare lake, there is plenty of space to splash around with the kids, set up beach chairs, sunbathe on the sand, and play a game of beach volleyball. After your swim, grab a snack at the beach concession stand.

If you feel like exploring beyond the beach and swimming area, you can take a stroll along the boardwalk, try a boat rental, or go fishing.
