Omaya Lake Road travels through the popular "King Eddy" area just southeast of Vernon, BC. This well-maintained gravel road will take you to King Edward and Oyama Lakes. The High Rim Hiking Trail runs along this road, with several access points to great hikes.
As you navigate the switchbacks towards the trail's west end, you get incredible views of Terrace Mountain, Kalamalka Lake, Wood Lake, and Okanagan Lake. Just east of the switchbacks is a fantastic dispersed campsite with the best views of the Okanagan Valley.
Oyama Wilderness Resort (open seasonally) is on the west side of the trail and specializes in fishing excursions. There are campsites, RV hookups, and small cabins on the lake. They also have a general store that has fishing supplies.
King Edward Lake Recreation Area has both dispersed campsites outside of the campground and the campground, which is open seasonally and costs $15 per night. The smaller Damer Lake also offers camping; both campgrounds have vaulted toilets only.
The road is a well-maintained two-lane gravel road that any high-clearance vehicle can handle. It's mostly gravel with a couple of rocky sections.
