We have received lots of calls lately regarding Okanagan Region Flooding. Mabel Lake Resort and Marina recorded above average high water this spring, but we did not experience any damaging flooding.

The Lake water level peaked around June 5, 2017, and as the water continues to recede, we are happy to reassure you that Mabel Lake is NOT flooded, or damaged by high waters.

The Resort Boat Launch, Marina and Pier are fully accessible and the sandy Mabel Lake Beach is beginning to emerge from the spring thaw waters — freshly soaked, washed and replenished. Ready for your holiday beach and boating enjoyment.

posted June 20th, 2017 — Beach Cafe Opens on June 28th

We seek an outgoing, motivated and organized individual with Food Safe and cooking experience to work in our Beach Cafe for the months of July and August. This is a full time 10 week position, in a fast paced Ice Cream Scooping, Burger Flipping, FF Frying and Poutine Melting recreational environment.

Working lakeside in a picturesque resort setting — greeting guests, serving fast food, sharing responsibilities in a team environment. The ideal candidate will be looking for a temporary change of scenery, willing to live in a campground or reside close enough to commute, and lead by example. Cooking, ordering and inventory knowledge/control is a must, as well as Food Safe (or willingness to pass the course) and an optimistic healthy attitude.
Interested? Give Terry or Sharon a call at 250-838-6664.


This position accurately and efficiently prepares food as directed to ensure the effective running of the Beach Cafe. As an Ice Cream and Treat Server, this fun position requires an outgoing team player, capable of engaging with guests young and old as they ponder their treat selection, while ensuring a smooth moving line-up on hot summer days.
Food Safe required.
* Please note this position works from July to August.


Important message for our many friends, neighbors, and guests:
Terry and Ken are excited for what the 2017 season has to offer. Due to extensive Estate Planning, Mabel Lake Resort and Mabel Lake Golf and Country Club will now be run under two separate entities.

Terry will own and operate the campground, most beach cabins, store and marina. Ken will own and operate the club house, golf course, airpark and misc. rentals.

Although owned and operated separately, Ken and Terry are committed to the overall success of the resort as a whole and will continue to exceed expectations.

The Laursen families thank you for your continued support, and look forward to opening our 46th season with you at Mabel Lake.

Terry and Ken Laursen

May Long Weekend Updates

Invitation from the AirPark Safety Committee:

“As a very proactive group of people who understand that, in the event of a fire, we will attempt to the best of our efforts to control and contain any fire. That being said, if we thought 2015 was dry, it has been stated that 2016 will be much hotter and dryer.

There will be one fire preparedness meeting at the Airpark Fire Hall at 10:00 on Saturday, May 21, 2016, where we will demonstrate the use of our fire truck, fire pump and fire hoses.

Mabel Lake FirehallWe have decided to add a siren to the Airpark Fire House so that any emergency, i.e.: fire, medical emergencies, etc. — anyone can sound the alarm to alert the community to an event that requires attention. We would encourage you to join us and participate in the use and familiarization of our equipment.”

From the Grounds…….

WOW……….this great spring weather has allowed us to be able to provide unbelievably great conditions for this time of the year and we are set to have another outstanding year on the golf course. The great weather only plays a part in having the golf course in good shape. Bill, Dave, Jim, and the rest of the grounds crew have been doing a tremendous job keeping the course up to par so when you see them around, thank them for all their hard work.

From the Grounds…….

I am happy to report that Mother Nature was kind to us this past winter and the golf course wintered well and is in great early season shape. We had nowhere near the disease pressure we experienced last winter with only a few damaged spots on some greens. With this warm early spring, these spots should fill in quickly. We are also fortunate … READ MORE

Mabel Lake Marina Grand Opening

Mabel Lake Marina June 16, 2015 On Friday July 3, at 12:00 noon, we will be hosting a GRAND OPENING Ribbon Cutting ceremony and public BBQ in celebration of the completion of the concrete, 260 slip Mabel Lake Marina. In 2010, the owners of Mabel Lake Holiday Centre Ltd. were informed their current dock system would no longer be granted a water lease due to new regulations. Five years later, after numerous public hearings, applications, petitions, meetings, drawings, studies and consultations — and 2 years of construction — the multi-million dollar, privately funded project is complete, and open to the public.

Media Press Release: For Immediate Release
