Site Description:Octopus Creek flows into Lower Arrow Lake. The recreation site is located at the mouth of the creek in a crescent bay. Boaters find it a safe retreat for waiting out storms and sudden winds. During low water, there is an expansive sand and cobble stone beach. Kids can spend endless hours here playing in the water, and moving sand and rocks around. The water warms up later in the summer and is quite pleasant for swimming and board sailing. Arrow Lake is known for Kokanee fishing. However, if the fish are not biting, there is still lots to do at Octopus Creek. Hikers can hike up the creek searching for the natural hot springs. At low water there is miles of beach to walk.
