Blind Bay on Shuswap Lake is a hidden cove with a tricky entrance located on the southern shore of the lake. Because the lake arm is so large the entrance to Blind Bay is sometimes missed due to the angle of the bay in relation to the larger Shuswap Lake. A landmark to keep an eye out for, marking the entrance to Blind Bay, is Reedman Point.
In the summer months the lake is a popular recreation destination for boating, fishing, sailing, canoeing, scuba diving, water skiing, wakeboarding and tubing. Blind Bay is one of many access points to the lake equipped with two boat launches and some marinas providing moorage.
Shuswap Lake is well known for its marine parks, islands and sandy beaches. At the entrance of Blind Bay is Copper Island which is popular with scuba divers. Shuswap, Celista and Shannon Beach Marine Parks are not far away. And, nearby, across from Blind Bay is the Shuswap Provincial Park.
In the Blind Bay area there is a small selection of campground and B&B accommodations available. Book well in advance.
Blind Bay is located on the southern shore of Shuswap Lake, best accessed from Hwy #1. Blind Bay is northwest of Salmon Arm and 4 miles (6 km) east of Sorrento.
