Made available by Christina Gateway Community Development Association, The Christina Lake Insider app rewards you for exploring Christina Lake, British Columbia. Collect points as you visit places around the area and redeem those points for discounts at local businesses.
Christina Lake is located half way across the southern edge of the province, just north of the British Columbia-Washington border. It is considered part of the Boundary Country, the area of the province nestled between the Okanagan Valley and West Kootenay Valley regions; geographically defined by the Kettle River Valley and the Monashee Mountains.
Location and climate are two of the main attractions of Christina Lake. Clear mountain-fed streams, clean lakes and hectares of wilderness create plentiful opportunities for recreation. Plenty of sunshine, four full seasons, and mild temperatures make Christina Lake an ideal environment for those who love the outdoors. Christina Lake has the distinction of being the warmest tree lined lake in Canada due to hot springs deep in the lake. Christina Lake is a community with many assets. An unincorporated village, it has risen to become a home for some, and a destination for many. Years of volunteer work by local residents have created a community which is enlightened on environmental and social concerns, and yet maintains an intrinsically small-town quality which is cherished by locals and visitors alike. These efforts have established a community whose assets are varied, yet cohesive; historical yet progressive.
