Red Lake is an area well known for some great fishing and hunting areas. The area resides in a naturally wooded area that provides excellent cover from winds customary in some of the other areas of Kamloops. What is also great about Red Lake is it resides at a slightly higher elevation and as a result is usually a few degrees cooler than valley temperatures. Aside from that there are some great hiking trails that lead to some really nice water holes where someone can enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings.
One of the main reasons why this area is so affordable is that there is a year round dirt road access, that is a blast when you are into driving 4X4. To get a better idea of what the area is like feel free to take a look at this sample video of the road leading to the Red Lake area:
