Lake serves as the eastern terminal of the Upper

Arrow Lakes Ferry service between Galena Bay

 and Shelter Bay, 49 kilometres south of Revelstoke

Originally two separate lakes, the Arrow Lakes

became one 230-km long lake with the construction

of the Keenleyside Dam in the 1960s.

At low water levels the two lakes become separated,

once again, although connected by the a section

known as the Narrows.

The shores of the Arrow Lakes feature rocky

 headlands and steep cliffs, with mountain sides

that are heavily forested and rise sharply to

elevations around 2,600 metres.

The Upper Arrow Lakes Ferry service operates on

a daily schedule throughout the year, with an

additional seasonal vessel in the summer months.

The free service is operated by the Ministry of

Transportation and Infrastructure of the Province

 of British Columbia.
