During the summer months, nothing beats a dip in the cooling waters of Kootenay Lake and sunbathing on the beach. There are several stunning public beaches to choose from. These beaches are free to the public with no parking or entrance fees.
The Kuskanook Rest Area and Boat Launch offers the closest fully serviced access to Kootenay Lake from Creston. It's more than just a boat launch as there is a beautiful beach on the south side well worth visiting.
