Marron Valley is an inhabited locality and former post office in the South Okanagan region of the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, located to the west of Skaha Lake.[1]

Named in association with the Marron River, a post office was first opened in 1909 as Marron Lake.[2] The post office was re-designated Marron Valley in 1924. The Geological Survey of Canada map for 1936 show "Marron Valley (town)" though this was downgraded to "Marron Valley (settlement)" in 1954.[3]
