Lake Koocanusa Houseboat Rentals

Lake Koocanusa is surrounded by the mountains of two countries: the United States and Canada. Narrow and long like many river-fed reservoirs in high places, Koocanusa is a gorgeous recreation spot, perfect for everything from houseboating to water skiing, fishing, camping and picnicking.

Lake Koocanusa glistens widely between the banks of weaving shoreline in which even the largest houseboat can slip into complete solitude. Much of the shoreline is only accessible by boat, so when you set down anchor and step out onto the sandy beaches, you will truly be alone with nature.

Wildlife is abundant on the lakeshore. You might see a raccoon or a river otter on the banks, or a striding great blue heron in the shallows. You may even catch a glimpse of a rare trumpeter swan in flight. While fishing from your houseboat, you'll find the lake also is populated richly by fish including Kokanee Salmon, Burbot and Kamloops, as well as Whitefish and West Slope Cutthroat.
