Squilax, British Columbia, Canada, is one of the smallest communities you will encounter during your visit and that is in the overwhelming unlikelihood that you encounter it unless you have set out to do so. The Squilax community boasts a population so small that basically everyone who lives and works in the community is either from the same family or has spent the entirety of their life there. With this being said, Squilax rests next to Shuswap Lake, which is one of British Columbia's most popular during the summer months and booms with vacationers.

If you end up visiting Squilax, whether on purpose or by accident, you shouldn't have much trouble finding a bed in a Squilax, British Columbia, Canada hostel. Your hostel will be located on Shuswap Lake and extremely proximal to a Greyhound bus station, making it an excellent location for backpackers to stay. If you're searching for nightlife in the area, your best bet is to make friends at your Squilax, British Columbia, Canada hostel or head out to Shuswap Lake during the day and see who you meet!

While at the lake you can enjoy swimming, boating, kayaking, and canoeing. The area also boasts the annual First Nations dance competitions that provide visitors with some insight into the rich cultural heritage of Squilax. While visiting, you can also try some lesser known but worthwhile activities like beaver watching, which is if nothing else a unique alternative to bird watching. There are also cultural houses and lodges in the area that offer another glimpse into what life used to be like for the First Nations bands that first settled in Squilax. There are also several golf courses for those who are feeling a bit sporty. Finally, don't forget to settle down one night beside a nice campfire and roast some marshmallows while watching the stars.
