Scooteney Reservoir is an oasis in the desert. This 925 acre lake is part of the Columbia Basin Project. The waters that leave the reservoir through the south head gate flow out to the surrounding farms to become life-giving waters for the many crops that are grown in the fertile Columbia Basin. Scooteney Reservoir is known for its fantastic fishing, but it is a well-kept secret that the south end of the lake is a great place for equestrians.
