This is a wonderful area for camping, hiking, picnicking, swimming, fishing, windsurfing, and photography. Facilities within the park include pit toilets, water-access campsites, and backcountry campsites. Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park features 24 km (15 mi) of hiking and riding trails. A hike to the top of Okanagan Mountain provides excellent views of Okanagan Lake and the Monashee Mountains.
Wild Horse Canyon is the most popular destination in the park. This is a short, deep canyon where First Nations people apparently trapped wild horses during the 1890s, when these animals were considered to be a nuisance. Pack trails that traversing the park date from the days when the trapping and selling of furs was a part of everyday commerce.
To reach the canyon, leave from the parking lot on a trail that leads through ponderosa pine and grassland for about 3 km (1.8 mi). Cross the creek and then continue uphill for about 5 km (3 mi) into the canyon. It is possible to continue hiking through the canyon to Okanagan Lake. The return trip is about 22 km (13.6 mi) long.
Alternatively, another trail returns to the parking lot, climbing the gully on the west wall of the canyon, and travelling along the ridges on the north side before gradually descending to join up with the main trail by the creek.
Still another hike begins about the half way up the canyon, continuing uphill in a southeast direction to two small lakes, with excellent fishing. It is possible to continue past the lakes to Good Creek Canyon. After following the canyon for approximately 3 km (1.86 mi) the trail arrives at the Kettle Valley Railway station, facing the lake.
