Pinantan Lake is a small community located about 20 minutes out of Kamloops, BC.

It is home to a general store, a resort, a small school and about 500 residents.

The lake itself is actually two parts, usually referred to as Big Pinantan and Little Pinantan. It is a small lake that only allows electric motors.

The name Pinantan means shoe or moccasin in traditional Aboriginal language. It was named this because its shape resembles a moccasin.
