Nestled along the Bonaparte River and renowned for its hospitality, Cache Creek (pop. 1,040) is a popular stopover point for travellers. Take a break for a home-baked bite to eat and a cozy bed for the night, or stay and enjoy the community’s parks, golf course and other tourist attractions. In spring and summer, the Thompson River provides endless fishing (for steelhead), kayaking, canoeing, and rafting, while provincial parks feature amazing wildlife viewing and camping. Hunt for fossils or explore the area’s diverse culture and history. In winter, snowshoeing is a great option. Year round, a selection of rodeos, festivals, and family-friendly events take place. At the heart of the Cache Creek experience are the 20 buildings that make up the historic Hat Creek Ranch, one of the most distinctive heritage sites in British Columbia.
