Recreation Site Description:

The Okanagan Lake Recreation Site was renamed the Evely Recreation Site in honour of the late Glen Evely to pay tribute to his commitment to public service. The site was chosen for its natural beauty and for its proximity to Vernon. Evely, a 12-year employee of the Forest Service,was killed in a car crash near Vernon on Nov.13, 2004. He was serving as a volunteer RCMP officer when a stolen vehicle hit the cruiser he was travelling in.

Driving Directions:

Located on Westside Road past Fintry Provincial Park - approximately 34 km north of Kelowna or 49 km south of Vernon. Watch for marker signs located on Hwy 97. A link to useful directions and highways in BC

Those willing to take exploring British Columbias great outdoors to a higher level are invited to participate in the Backroad Mapbooks GeoTour. The BRMB GeoTour has highlighted some of the popular recreation sites and trails throughout the six regions of British Columbia by hiding containers (called caches) under the following outdoor themes: On The Trail, On The Road, and On The Water.
Explore BC and learn more about the outdoors while unearthing treasures.


Step 1: Get the Coordinates. Enter the coordinates into your GPS using either the UTM or the Longitude and Latitude. You can also use the GPX file, Send to My GPS, or Send to My Phone functions above.

Step 2: Using the coordinates collect as many BRMB caches as you can! The hidden, water-tight containers will be clearly marked as official Backroad Mapbooks caches by different coloured themed stickers (Green for “On The Trail, Red for “On The Road”, and Blue for “On The Water”).

*Do not forget to take a sticker from each container, swap some swag, log your name and any comments on the log book inside the cache, then re-hide the cache.

You may begin your hunt at any region you choose, but to be eligible for the BRMB Regional Geocoin, you must collect all 3 stickers from the caches in the region.

Regions to explore:

Step 3: Download the sticker collection page for each region or the region you are working on collecting. Place the stickers you collected on the sticker collection page and send it in to receive the BRMB regional geocoin. (Download Sticker Collection Page For Thompson Okanagan BC Region)

The Backroad Mapbooks office is located at Unit 106-1500 Hartley Ave., Coquitlam, BC, V3K 7A1.

Step 4:
If you like a challenge then collect all six custom regional geocoins (18 caches to do so) and also collect the six bonus caches for a total of 24 caches and you will receive our custom BRMB 25th Anniversary Geocoin.

Note: If you’re quick, there is a “First-to-Find” special prize inside each cache container.
