lockhartLocated on the spectacular East Shore of Kootenay Lake, Boswell is a quiet community where time seems to slow down, and the relaxation of being immersed in Mother Nature’s wonderland captures one’s soul. Dramatic vistas of towering mountains and sparkling water surround visitors to Boswell. Locally known as the “Banana Belt” of the East Shore of Kootenay Lake due to its location and geography, Boswell enjoys a mild climate and a history of fruit growing.

There is access to fine resorts, campgrounds and B&Bs, as well as art galleries, roadside attractions, and hiking trails. Take the time to visit “The Glass House” nearby, a building constructed from 500,000 empty embalming fluid bottles, forming a rather unique attraction. Slow down for the many deer and wild turkeys … and simply enjoy. Lockhart Beach Provincial Park has a small campground and across the highway there is a beach with picnic tables.
