Kaleden is a small historic, and modern rural satellite community located south of Penticton in the Okanagan Valley in the province of British Columbia, Canada. The community of 4.32 kilometres (2.68 mi), with its population of 1,224, is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) south of Penticton along Skaha Lake in the South Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen. Kaleden was established by James Ritchie in the early 1900s for growing fruit. The famous "Kaleden Cots" got their beginning here. From the community beginnings as a small orcharding community, the town has evolved from fruit to vineyards and has become a bedroom community of Penticton.
Although Kaleden is somewhat of a small community, it has its own school. There are still some summer cabins on the water and Ponderosa point resort is a well known summer resort. There is a famous old hotel that is approximately 100 years old but has never really been in use. It is a large skeleton structure on the beach.
