Pristine Wilderness

The Kmyta family would like to welcome you to Echo Lake Resort in the beautiful North Okanagan.

Corey Kmyta and his family will be your hosts during your stay at Echo Lake, and we are dedicated to making your vacation a memorable one. 2015 is our second season as owner and operators here and we are looking forward to seeing all our guests again this year, and meeting new guests who are staying with us for the first time. We hope to continue working towards making Echo Lake, and our cabins and campsites, the perfect family vacation spot while maintaining the natural beauty of this very special place.

About Us

Echo Lake Resort Team

Corey Kmyta was born and raised in the Okanagan, and spent his childhood out on Crooked Lake at his family cabin. Since a young age, he loved to get out fishing and appreciate the quiet beauty of nature up in the mountains. At 18 he got a job at Beaver Lake Resort in Lake Country under the tutelage of Adrian Hasler. After almost 10 years of working with Adrian and at other resorts around the province, Corey finally found a place that he felt he could breathe new life into and his journey at Echo Lake began in November 2013.

Dean Kmyta and Ally Marie are new to the Echo Lake Resort team as of January 2016. Similar to Corey, both Dean and Ally were born and raised in the Okanagan enjoying the outdoors.  They recently completed their intensive Financial/Accounting educational program at BCIT, Vancouver. Afterwards, decided to take a three-month camping/road trip across the United States. Both have extensive experience working in both high-class and rustic resorts, and they look forward to bringing their strengths to Echo Lake Resort.

Ingrid and Ken Kmyta, Corey’s parents, are helping Corey realize his dream of owning a resort and will be seen around the resort in the summer, spending time helping out and enjoying their retirement on the lake.

The entire crew is excited to meet all our guests and hope to create an inviting and peaceful place for you and your family to enjoy as well.
