Invest in Savona

British Columbia, Canada



The lakeshore community of Savona, B.C. is located on Highway 1 approximately 45 kilometres west of the region's largest city centre, Kamloops. More specifically, the community lies on the west end of Kamloops Lake, where the Thompson River exits. The community of Savona is home to approximately 650 residents.

The surrounding community is semi-arid grasslands and hills supporting cattle ranching and agriculture. The Canadian National Railway runs along the northern region of Kamloops Lake, whereas the Canadian Pacific Railway runs along the opposite side of the lake through Savona.

The community is home to a number of agricultural ventures, including a ginseng farm. Additionally, a number of tours and charters offer recreational opportunities in the community throughout the year.

The community of Savona provides services such as elementary school, a fire department and ambulatory care. The community is home to a gas station, a general store, and a number of cafes and hotels.

A lovely beach side park and boat launch are a great summer attraction in the community. The Savona Museum is open year round, 3 days a week and is also the community's public library. Additionally, Savona is home to an active community centre which offers lawn bowling in the summer and carpet bowling during the winter, among other activities.
