[edit] Geography

The area is mostly undeveloped and covered by forest and rangeland. It also contains hundreds of lakes, rivers, and streams; farms, orchards, and vineyards; steppes with cacti, swamps, and mountains. The base elevation is 342 m at Okanagan Lake and the peak elevation is 1915 m at Silver Star Mountain.

Despite being undeveloped, the area is largely accessible by forest service roads and other unimproved roads. Geohashers will find the Thompson Okanagan Backroad Mapbook to be an indispensable tool.
