Robert Lake is a Conservation park and because we are protecting the sensitive ecosystem, there is no access or trails leading to the lake.
There is an information kiosk and small viewing area around it at the end of Curtis Road.
Robert Lake is the best example of an alkali playa or salt flat in the Central Okanagan. The dry and salty mud flats left after the evaporation of water is ideal habitat for waterbirds and shorebirds. Of particular interest is the American Avocet, an endangered species. For more information about the Avocet or birding activities please see the Central Okanagan Naturalists Club website.
Birdwatching is a favorite activity from the kiosk area with binoculars and birding scopes. The time of the year will dictate what species may be migrating through, nesting or enjoying the Okanagan sun.
Please contain your activity to the kiosk and viewing area so you do not disturb the birds and other wildlife.
Robert Lake Regional Park was acquired in partnership with the Central Okanagan Parks and Wildlife Trust in 1998 through private donations. Thanks also to the Central Okanagan Naturalists Club, TD Canada Trust Friends of the Environment Foundation and the Lunam Family for their generous contributions to the purchase of the park.
Most of the two hectares that makes up Robert Lake Regional Park is the lake itself. The surrounding road is on private property and the owners ask that park visitors respect their privacy and keep activities to the kiosk area.
Dogs, overnight camping, open fires and smoking are not permitted. The kiosk and viewing area is open during daylight hours year round.
